    The improved system and new card purchasing site have already delivered a greater ROI than the original amount spent in development, pleasing all project stakeholders and completely satisfying project requirements. The Vardot team is highly organized, professional, and proactive with communication.

    A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    I am a deputy director of strategic partnerships at a UN agency focused on services to refugees in the eastern Mediterranean region.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Vardot?

    We wanted to improve our donation website in 2018, and we did that by expanding services that were already in place by Vardot at the time so that we could modernize and streamline our donation platform.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    Their team started by analyzing and improving the donor journey itself. We felt that there wasn’t a lot of emphasis on individual donations, so they helped us to redesign the flow in a way that would be more user-friendly, informational, and directive of supporters to the right path for them. Verdot is not a payment platform, so they worked closely with another vendor to help integrate the website with Salesforce.

    Another main feature that they helped us with was our expanded payment modalities, allowing our team to incorporate PayPal as a payment method. On top of that, they built an entirely new system using Drupal that functions as an online boutique that allows first-time supporters of the agency to purchase electronic cards for their friends and family members that would be sent out through us for any major holiday and also support our cause.

    What is the team composition?

    I had one main point of contact with them who had the know-how to answer all of our questions and prioritize workloads for her colleagues, but I’m not sure how many people were on their team in total.

    How did you come to work with Vardot?

    I had received very positive feedback from my colleagues who had worked with them in the past. They were selected on a waiver several years ago because they were local, but the relationship has been very successful over the years so it was an easy decision to continue working with them.

    How much have you invested with them?

    The cost from January 2018 was approximately $100,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We worked with them on the project from January 2018–February 2019.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    The gift for refugees program was designed very quickly under a great deal of pressure to finish before the holidays, but we’ve already had a full return on the investment we made in the very short period since that program has been live. I think that really speaks to the quality of their work because it’s clear that there are no hiccups in the process at all.

    They do a great job of balancing the technology of the product so that it’s easy to use with the creative ideas and designs from our team in order to make our services a little more unique and customized than you might expect from something built this quickly.

    How did Vardot perform from a project management standpoint?

    One of their strengths is their ability to be totally honest about timelines, even when we are applying pressure to get things done as quickly as possible. They demonstrated the integrity to tell me exactly what they could deliver and when, and it felt like they were always presenting realistic timelines rather than just promising things they might not deliver. For the most part, our communication took place via phone, email, or face-to-face meetings.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    We occasionally had problems with our other two vendors in terms of integrating the various payment services that we needed, and Vardot was always on top of communication and collaboration with the other teams, even when they were not. Our project manager, in particular, was always proactive, and that helped us to stay on track which in turn helped save our agency money, and that is always a big deal for a charity organization like ours.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    It seemed to me that they were somewhat limited by their exclusive use of Drupal for the new website, but the product that they delivered was very high quality in the end so that was not a big problem for us.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Vardot?

    We wanted a Jordan-based Drupal company to take over our website development and hosting and we chose Vardot for this purpose. We were already working with school-specialized Drupal website development company in the US, but were not happy with their service. We have both a public website and an internal portal.

    What were your goals for this project?

    --Transfer all work to Jordan and work with a company that was locally-based --Develop and grow the website and the internal portal

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We researched website companies in Jordan that work with Drupal and met with a few. Vardot's work and client list stood out from the start, so we went with them.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Efficient, well-organized and responsive team. Ticketing system worked well. Nothing was ever impossible.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    Their dedication to our project, the personal attention, the follow-up, the can-do attitude, the amount of time they spent working on our project and our problems to find viable solutions to everything, the way they treated our project as their own -- as if they had as much a stake in its success as we do.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    The ForUS platform/portal is a national initiative by the King Abdullah Fund for Development (KAFD) to facilitate career opportunities for the Jordanian youth and unemployed. Besides job vacancies; the portal features integrations with strategic partners that provide volunteering work, critical skill development courses and e-mentorship. The discovery stage was very quick and thorough in terms of gathering requirements and establishing objectives. We established strategic partnerships early on as well to identify all integrations required. The integrations were started as soon as we received and approved the wireframes and designs. An initiation stage was necessary due to the fact that we needed 3 of our team members to be trained by Vardot’s technical and project teams for the duration of the project delivery process. The website was developed and delivered on the timeline agreed between us.

    Delivering a responsive and attractive platform, Vardot helped yield a 600% increase in traffic, which has contributed to revenue growth. Their skill, workflow, and attention to detail continue to impress.

    The client submitted this review online.

    BACKGROUND

    Please describe your company and your position there.

    I'm the CEO of Mkateb.com, a one-stop retail shop offering stationery, office supplies, and digital printing services. Our platform also acts as a multichannel logistics hub and distributor.  

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    For what projects/services did your company hire Vardot?

    We hired Vardot to improve our old website, which had a lot of technical bugs and SEO issues.

    What were your goals for this project?

    Our goal was to launch an enhanced and professional e-commerce website that would be our main platform for online purchases and inventory. The old Magento platform was outdated and not mobile-friendly, resulting in poor customer experience and lost sales.

    We wanted to have a site that was more visually appealing, interactive, and responsive. For example, we wanted to improve the site’s search functionality and product catalog. It also had to be compatible with social media and other modern technology.

    SOLUTION

    How did you select this vendor?

    We searched for reputable vendors in the Middle East that could provide e-commerce website design and development services. Vardot had the best portfolio out of four candidates with similar services.

    Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

    Vardot redesigned and rebuilt our e-commerce site using Drupal. Initially, we had several rounds of feedback on the platform’s design to ensure that it would align with our objectives.

    The team then seamlessly migrated our platform from an old version of Magento to Drupal, which is much more flexible. They were quite excited to show us the platform’s new features during our training sessions.

    We asked them for features that would allow us to run better campaigns, such as discounts and coupons. After we edited the products, Vardot launched the website on a hosting server they manage. They continue to provide regular support and maintenance for the platform.

    What was the team composition?

    We work mainly with two people from Vardot, a project manager and a technical team lead. The team also included designers and developers and testers.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

    Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

    Our organic traffic has increased by over 600% due to better SEO. As a result, our sales have also gone up. Plus, we can easily run sales campaigns on the site with a quick time to market.

    How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

    The engagement is going quite smoothly. We communicate online through a project management system that allows us to upload files, comment on discussions, and follow up on milestones. We also comment on designs using InVision. After we went live, Vardot provided an online ticketing system that allows us to report issues and specify their urgency.

    What did you find most impressive about this company?

    We’re impressed with their passion for offering solutions. They anticipate problems and deliver well beyond the project scope. The quality-price ratio is also quite impressive.

    Are there any areas for improvement?

    I have nothing to highlight for improvement.

    A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

    BACKGROUND

    Introduce your business and what you do there.

    I’m the associate director of outreach at American Muslims for Palestine. I was one of two leads on the website project with Vardot.

    OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

    What challenge were you trying to address with Vardot?

    Our website wasn’t user-friendly, and we wanted to redesign it to improve user access. We also wanted our website to reflect our growth and brand evolution.

    SOLUTION

    What was the scope of their involvement?

    They did full-stack web development from our design specs, using Drupal on the backend and InDesign and InVision on the frontend. The new features include categorized content, a company description tab, a new color scheme, video display, social media integration, and a more prominent donate button. We also can now preview images for use on the site. They currently host the site and make any requested changes.

    What is the team composition?

    I interacted with two of the four people working on the project. One was a designer and the others were developers.

    How did you come to work with Vardot?

    I knew Vardot through a family friend and our team thought their professionalism beat any other vendor. They were also flexible with our needs.

    How much have you invested with them?

    We have spent $30,000.

    What is the status of this engagement?

    We started working with them in September 2015 and the engagement concluded in October 2016.

    RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

    They offered support for a year after launch, making changes and fixing bugs as needed. Even adjustments that weren’t originally budgeted were complimentary. We’re going to hire them for another site revamp to add additional features.

    How did Vardot perform from a project management standpoint?

    They used Basecamp and set us a work plan and a schedule. I found their project management very professional and they always kept us up to date. They responded to emails or messages within 24 hours.

    What did you find most impressive about them?

    They treated our project like their priority. When we had a DNS server attack, they quickly dealt with the problem.

    Are there any areas they could improve?

    I thought we didn’t spend as much time talking about the design and research as we should have. We’ll probably do that the second time around.

    Do you have any advice for potential customers?

    Customers should stay informed about what you want moving forward and communicate with Vardot constantly. A failure to respond will delay the project.
