What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
It passes the gut-check test. We have six different brands, and the TriLion site served as a template for our other brands’ websites. It’s made the rest of our web development go so much faster and more seamlessly than I would’ve anticipated.
How did TriLion Studios perform from a project management standpoint?
They were fantastic from a project management standpoint. We used Slack to communicate, which was great because I could get a good level of visibility on the work being completed and keep up with the team.
What did you find most impressive about them?
They have a good eye for design. Brian was able to look at our website, as a consumer would, and give us suggestions on how our site should function. In many ways, it’s like we had a designer and a consultant working with us at the same time. They took a lot of the guesswork out on our side.
I could tell that Brian was actually invested in our success and cared about what we’re doing. He had done his homework before he even started, which we appreciated.
Are there any areas they could improve?
We did have to make some adjustments after the site launched, but I’m not sure if that had to do with personal preference, or with the timeline.
I think it would be helpful to have a three month or six-month checkup, after our launch; it seemed like a clean break when we were done working.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Potential customers, who want to complete their projects in just six weeks, should be prepared for a lot of communication. They should also be prepared to give a lot of feedback. I think if we were unable to give feedback in real-time, the website would’ve taken 8-12 weeks.
It’s a false assumption to think you’re going to just give instructions and receive a perfect website. If you’re willing to set aside an hour or so per day, just to make sure that you know everyone is staying on track, you’re going to be in good shape with TriLion.
