Feedback summary: 

The team generously offered complimentary services to boost quality while providing responsive customer service, which made the lucrative website a high value for its reasonable cost.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a partner at Auto Sound & Security, which provides window tints, auto accessories, car racks, remote start systems, and security installations.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechSuite?

We did not have a website and needed one built to increase brand recognition. Additionally, we wanted to give customers the ability to book appointments and pay online.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The team built the website from scratch, including all design aspects, and improved SEO. They offered additional services, but we only hired them for these two.

What is the team dynamic?

I worked directly with Sam [Co-Founder, TechSuite]. We met once a week for three weeks and then communicated via email.

How did you come to work with TechSuite?

Sam offered valuable packages and was willing to conduct tests and trials. He offered to fix anything we didn’t like upon completion. Based on these conversations, we saw that each dollar spent would go towards a better result.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent about $6,000 so far on this engagement.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in August 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We’ve had significant traffic increases. New customers found our business online or booked appointments through the website, which now allows them to email us. The emails help attract new customers. Overall, we’re very happy with the product.

How did TechSuite perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated primarily over phone or email. They were very responsive, following up next day at the latest.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The team understands the customer’s point of view. In addition to great deliverables, they consider the customer’s needs and give customized suggestions.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Since they offer multiple products and services, know what you want going into the engagement. The team will help pick packages best suited for the project.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The MVP is scheduled for release in the App Store in late 2017 and received positive QA and user feedback. TechSuite consistently delivered responsive, focused communication. They are a young, rapidly growing team with a wealth of skills and potential.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Spotz, Inc. is a mobile application for drivers in New York to exchange street parking spots. It’s a social network for the people of the city to connect in their communities and help each other look for street parking. I’m the CEO. I oversee all of the business and technical development.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechSuite?

We needed them to handle our development and design for the mobile application.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The app was built for both iOS and Android. We have the Google Maps API and Department of Transportation API, but other than that, it’s all original source coding that had to be built from the bottom up, according to our functionalities. TechSuite also provided a lot of design work, including our entire user interface and the logo. They’re still taking care of maintenance.

Mitch [COO, TechSuite] works with me on the marketing side, but as of now, we have not done any marketing campaigns or content development. We are working on strategies, but they are not fully vested in the marketing.

What is the team dynamic?

Sam [Co-Founder & CEO, TechSuite] was my main point of contact. We communicated every other day to once a week, at the minimum. I also communicated with Mitch [COO, TechSuite].

I attended an event that TechSuite held where I was one of the people pitching in front of panelists to raise funding. His other team member, Alyssa [Head of Branding, TechSuite] was also there. I have worked with her.

My company had an event over the summer for filming and for marketing purposes where all three of them were there. That really helped us out.

How did you come to work with TechSuite?

We approached them along with other developers and designers. I heard about Sam [Co-Founder & CEO, TechSuite] through one of my associates at work. I told them about my idea. At that time, TechSuite was also starting up. It was nice to see where they were going and I wanted to head in the same direction.

They’re college students, like me, and we’re both aspiring to be entrepreneurs. It was very difficult to find somebody who was willing to work with a college student on a low budget trying to get a startup platform out there. Price is a big factor, but I want to be comfortable with my developers so that I can have a conversation with them about where I’m going with my idea.

They were very helpful in getting us the right technology and the right tools to build our app in the best way possible. Sam [Co-Founder & CEO, TechSuite] is very knowledgeable about what he does. We saw some of his other work and we decided that they were the best choice for us.

How much have you invested with them?

We have invested $40,000-$50,000 for design and development.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in September 2016 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

We have a finished product - an MVP ready for the App Store. We’re set to launch at the end of October 2017/early November 2017. That’s the best result anyone could offer.

It went through QA and I really liked the user experience. I’m always working on making it easier and as simple as possible. At the stage that we are in now, it’s very promising and we want to get it out to the market. Over the summer at the event, we did give a few people the testing build. Everyone really liked it.

How did TechSuite perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic. Their responsiveness was always on point. There were a few times communication was lost while we both were dealing with a lot of finals. It was equally to blame on both ends.

Google Drive was our medium for a lot of communication and we sometimes used Dropbox. We would use Skype or phone each other when we weren’t able to meet in person depending on what task had to be done that week.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re passionate about what they do. It’s not just another business. Even if I have other stuff going on in my life, they bring me back into focus and bring me up to speed on what it is that we started out with together.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re growing rapidly right now. I see them doing great things. They need a bigger team to keep up with that. They are still in college. So, having a bigger team that’s not preoccupied with other things would help their clients.

What advice would you give to future clients of theirs?

Sometimes when you’re doing business with people, you start off great and then you start getting shaken up. It’s important to have faith in whoever you choose to go with. Have faith in TechSuite, be confident, and move forward.

Feedback summary: 

Since beginning the engagement, the company has consistently acquired 50-100 new clients each month. TechSuite impresses with their timely responses, high-quality work, and ability to deliver exceptional results and functional solutions.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm a manager at Bay Ridge Carpet, a linoleum and flooring retailer in Brooklyn, New York.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with TechSuite?

We needed a new website, and we needed help designing it and putting all of the code together. They helped me with everything as far as our web marketing presence goes.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I wanted the website to look professional and for it to stand out from my competitors, with a more high-end and upscale look. They created my website using a WordPress platform and maintain our website development and design. They also do some digital marketing work, including some SEO and PPC work with Google AdWords. We wanted to increase traffic and to come up higher on search results for certain key product phrases in Google searches for our geographic area. I gave them the content to include on our website.

What is the team dynamic?

I mainly interface with the co-founder of the company, Sam. I interact with him probably once a week.

How did you come to work with TechSuite?

We had somebody else that was managing our web presence and we weren’t happy with the results. I was introduced to Sam through networking. I presented him with my issues and the problems with my previous provider and he offered some solutions right off the bat. I was impressed with his initial approach and what said he could do for me, so I gave him a shot and I'm very happy with the decision I made to go with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working them about a year ago in July 2016 and it’s still an ongoing engagement.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent about $10,000 - $15,000 with them.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

It’s difficult for me to present specific numbers in terms of sales, but since I have started working with them, I have had between 50 to 100 new customers per month. I can at least partially attribute that to their work with our website. We are also happy with the design of the website so far.

How did TechSuite perform from a project management standpoint?

That is what I value the most about them. They respond quickly and take care of problems in a timely fashion. That's the number one reason I stick with them. We correspond mainly via text, on a daily or weekly basis. When necessary, we also occasionally meet up physically at a coffee shop, for example, about once a month or so. We also sometimes talk over email and the phone.

What did you find most impressive about them?

As I mentioned, my favorite part about their service is that they respond quickly and when they do respond, they get it right. It’s one thing to respond and then not take care of the problem or do it correctly, but they always give me a solution.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They’re a little expensive, so they could probably lower their prices a little bit.
