Vardot succeeded in improving the website with new features while maintaining a stable, problem-free user environment. The team showed strong technical expertise and problem-solving complemented by relatable, responsive communications. They made the project stress-free and enjoyable.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the owner of ProEquest, a horse sales company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Vardot?

My website needed to be upgraded to a new version of Drupal.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did everything from design to coding of my new website. They transferred features from my previous site and supplemented it with some additional features that I wanted. They enabled mapping and added a feature so users can follow people. Videos can now be placed in the profiles. They also improved the payment system operating on the backend.

What is the team composition?

I was in contact with three people.

How did you come to work with Vardot?

They reached out to me and told me they were a highly skilled Drupal company. I responded back to them. We had an enjoyable conversation so I decided to work with them.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together from January until December 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We have a much better website. It looks great, and we’ve had no issues. They exceeded my expectations.

How did Vardot perform from a project management standpoint?

They were exceptionally responsive and easy to deal with. We used email or phone calls. Everyone was aware of what was happening.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They could find a solution to anything. I’m not a computer guy so I was especially happy to talk with them and to be able to understand what they were talking about.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

I took a chance with them and liked them. I advise everyone to hire them. They do everything you want them to do. They’re easy to talk to.

Feedback summary: 

The team provided ongoing support until the solution proved ideally functional. Customers should expect a responsive partner who will take extra steps to ensure quality and delivery on time.

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.

Feedback summary: 

The team’s operations in North America and the Middle East made them well-suited to build content for wide-ranging and disparate audiences. Professional and communicative, Vardot was always prepared and delivered in a timely manner.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I'm the executive director of PeaceGeeks. We are a nonprofit organization that focuses on technology for peace.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Vardot?

We needed a website for one of our projects as an inventory of content promoting peace, tolerance, and cohesion in the face of hate speech and polarization in digital spaces. We wanted the product to focus on reducing vulnerability to extremism in the Middle East by trying to change the discourse in digital spaces.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They developed the site on Drupal 8 based on our designs and concepts. We spent time discussing the site’s intended look, functionality, and content.

What is the team composition?

The project manager was our main point of contact. She was involved in the initial negotiations and various high-level milestone moments.

How did you come to work Vardot?

We submitted four cross-offers and Vardot offered us a 50% discount because they supported our work. Although the offer was still higher than we had budgeted, the team’s excellent national reputation made the decision a “no-brainer”. We made the budget work.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent around $25,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked with them from January–May 2018. The website is launched and we’re now moving into a maintenance phase.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

We can make improvements to strengthen the calls to action. However, that area falls under design more than content.

How did Vardot perform from a project management standpoint?

The team was professional and the project manager was easy to communicate with; we used Basecamp. Vardot did everything on time; there were delays, but those were on our side. Originally, we wanted the site ready for an event, but turnover made that target impossible. However, the team did everything they could to get it launched.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Vardot is a smaller organization with a presence in both North America and the Middle East. While there’s a lot of practices I’m already familiar with, the team knew how to engage audiences in the latter region and create right-to-left site content.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I was happy with the entire engagement and we didn’t have any problems.

Any advice for potential customers?

Be ready and get the content prepared early. Vardot will be ready to hit the ground running.

Feedback summary: 

The updated web platform and photo application represent a huge leap forward in market opportunities, which wouldn't have been possible without Vardot and their technical expertise. Superior output quality has furthered their involvement. Assigned specialists are exceptionally responsive.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

The mission of The Life Writer is to make life story writing easy, affordable, and available to everybody through technology. I’m the CEO and co-founder along with my wife, Teri.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Vardot?

A big part of making life writing easy is to offer automatic voice transcription. The idea is that instead of paying somebody $50,000 to produce your story, you can do it yourself with our technology for $100. We've been through four different software providers over the years while trying to bring this product to market. Many companies said it can't be done or didn't even want to try.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The pre-existing version of the program was written in Drupal 6. In order to add automatic voice transcription required Vardot to update the program to Drupal 8.

Previously, we only offered clients the ability to produce a life story memoir like you see in the library. Some customers, however, didn't really want to write that much and would prefer using photos and describing what is happening in each one. Vardot created a photo book option that is landscape instead of portrait layout and much less dense with text.

What is the team composition?

We've worked with about five associates.

How did you come to work with Vardot?

We were reaching out to a lot of different companies trying to find one that was more capable than the previous firms and also a better value. I can't remember exactly how we got connected with Vardot. What really stood out was that they told us about a vulnerability on our website and advised us to get it fixed right away. I really appreciated that and it made them memorable.

What is the status of this engagement?

The project kicked off in early October 2017. Right now the product is 99% done. We're getting ready to launch the new site in the next 7–10 days.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

They deliver value by keeping their costs on the lower end and working very hard. Other companies are quick to send a bill and deliver a piece of work that isn't done or isn't very good. It's been just the opposite with Vardot: the product is very high quality and a great value.

Working with Vardot has made a big difference in expanding our market through the products we offer. Many people feel they don't have anything to say or are intimidated by writing a memoir, but everyone has a box of old photos that they want to share and document somehow. After eight years of trying, it's finally about to happen and that’s because of Vardot.

How did Vardot perform from a project management standpoint?

They’re super responsive. Throughout the entire project, they responded the same day or the next day. Other companies we worked with wouldn't respond for days or weeks even on really important or time-sensitive questions. It's incredible how quickly Vardot responds; they’re seriously amazing.

We primarily used Basecamp to communicate as well as some video conferencing and email. One of our initial concerns about working with them was communication because they’re based in Jordan. In fact, communicating with them is easier than with many other companies we’ve worked with even if they were located down the street.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They try harder than other companies. We had so many requests for them to change things once they delivered the site and the book building app. They've been so good about listening to us and actually doing the things we ask. They're just so dedicated and I can't say enough about them.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They pretty much nailed it. I don't think we've seen anything they could do better. We've been extremely impressed.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

One thing that worked for us was taking a screenshot of anything that needed to be changed or fixed. We communicated back and forth via screenshots, which made it easy to understand exactly what we were talking about and really saved time.

Feedback summary: 

The website has received positive feedback and consistently attracts new visitors and leads. Vardot’s team is professional, flexible, and responsive but their true strength lies in their deep knowledge of Drupal. Their emphasis on customer support and fluency in English are also remarkable.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

We offer an enterprise SaaS [Software as a Service] product where customers can log in and search for data on the companies that they currently or potentially will partner with.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire Vardot?

We hired them to create a simple yet powerful website to be able to attract potential customers as well as help with recruiting efforts in the quickest time possible.

What were your goals for this project?

Our main goal was to have a nicely designed website that can attract customers and explain our product in a straightforward and clear manner.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

I’ve known about this vendor based on other major projects they have worked on in the past. When it was time to select a vendor, they were one of the front-runners based on their experience.

Describe the project in detail.

They designed and developed the website and created content for it. They also provided maintenance and were able to implement everything from A to Z, which was a relief for us.

What was the team composition?

I interfaced with the CEO and a project manager. I know that there were two developers and a quality assurance resource dedicated to the project, which was more than enough based on its size.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What outcomes or results can you share that demonstrate progress and/or success?

We’ve received great feedback on the website from people outside of the company. We continue to obtain many leads and are able to track visitors thanks to the analytic solutions that Vardot implemented.

How effective was the project management?

They are a very responsive team and deadlines were always met. We used Basecamp for communication, which was very easy. They’re also fluent in English, making it even easier to talk with them.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

It’s probably the best company I've worked with when it comes down to their knowledge of Drupal. Their flexibility, professionalism, and support are second to none—they really want to make sure you’re happy. Lastly, it was a great price for the amount of work involved.

What tips or recommendations do you have?

My advice to any potential client would be to be prepared with the content for your site. The more proactive we were as a client, the faster things progressed.

Feedback summary: 

Since the launch of the redesigned website, there was a 50 percent to 60 percent increase in the traffic statics. Vardot delivered the product according to the set requirements and was responsive to technical concerns. They have excellent project management capabilities and can deliver work on time.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

We're an intergovernmental organization based in Vienna, Austria. We work with the governments of Saudi Arabia, Austria, Spain, and The Holy See. We were founded in 2012 with a specific mandate to foster and promote inter-religious dialogue between representatives and followers of different religions and cultures. We do this through a number of different programs. We provide training and mediation services in conflict resolution. We develop resources and publications on the subject, and we work with partners in education and media.

What is your position?

My title is media officer, but I work more with the communications department. I oversee all forms of communication.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Could you describe the challenge that you were trying to address when you first approached Vardot?

We were looking to redesign and relaunch our website. We had a basic and very static website, which was created in something of a hurry. So, we'd been working with that for a couple of years and were facing a number of problems. For example, it was built on a proprietary CMS [content management system], which meant that we couldn't edit the site ourselves. Also, the website had not kept pace with the organization. We have changed considerably since 2012, and the website no longer reflected the current reality of the organization.

SOLUTION

Could you describe the actual scope of work assigned to them during this engagement?

We were looking for development and design. They provided us with training on how to use our new Drupal CMS, which they carried out after the site was completed. They were also involved in the discovery phase. Vardot worked very closely with us from the beginning. When we hired them, we only knew that we wanted a new site. We had decided what we'd like to see, from a very non-technical point of view, and they worked with us very closely in the process of translating that into an actual website.

We had decided to use Drupal before Vardot was involved, though, and we contacted Vardot initially because they had really excellent credentials with Drupal. We were very clear that we wanted something that was intuitive, open source, and easy to use and manage. My supervisor and I have both worked with Drupal in the past and have been very happy with its overall performance.

How did you come to choose Vardot as your partner?

We had a transparent bidding process. As an inter-governmental organization, we had some pretty strict procurement rules, so we did a bidding process. I believe the initial bid went out to about 16 companies. After the bidding process, we had technical and commercial assessments, and Vardot was the clear winner in both categories. Also, we liked that they had a lot of experience with mobile development and Arabic fonts.

What were the results of the project?

The site was launched on January 21 [2015]. But now we are working on a second multilingual site.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

In terms of results, could you share any statistics, metrics or user feedback that would demonstrate the over quality of their performance and/or the success of the engagement?

In the two months since the launch, we've seen between a 50 percent to 60 percent increase in the total number of visitors to the site. We were very satisfied with their project management capabilities, too. They were very responsive to our needs throughout the planning and development phases. It was very clear at all times who my contact was at Vardot. They were very quick to respond when we had questions or concerns. We have a fairly involved internal process of approvals, and they were very understanding of that. I liked the way we decided on timelines for delivery, and they stuck to those timelines. The product was launched on time, which is a first for us.

When working with Vardot, is there anything that you would consider unique about their practice that distinguishes them from other vendors?

What I really liked about the team from Vardot is the fact that they actually took the time to understand our organization. One specific thing was that there were certain parts of the content we had developed, but hadn't realized its full potential. They were able to point out that potential and encourage us to highlight the information. That showed that they were able to go above and beyond their role as Web development experts and advise us on branding and marketing. We really appreciated that well-rounded approach.

In retrospect, are there areas in which you think they could improve as a service provider?

At the moment, we're going through the process of launching the multilingual site. We're launching in four different languages at the same time. Looking back, I think that maybe we should have been a little bit more realistic about the amount of work that was involved and the number of people we would need outside the core team. So, maybe a little more planning in that phase would have been beneficial. We both assumed that the process we'd used for the English version would work across all the languages, but we found out the hard way that was not the case.

What advice, if any, would you give a future client of theirs?

If there's a multilingual aspect to the project, especially something outside of English and Arabic, both of which Vardot is very comfortable with, I would perhaps look at detailing what is involved a little more. I can't emphasize how important that planning phase really is before you begin to build.

Feedback summary: 

The revamped website received positive feedback from its end users. There was an increase in traffic statistics and in donations. Vardot was a very technical team, responsive, cooperative and outstandingly professional.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your organization.

I work for [a nonprofit refugee organization], which was created in 1949.

What is your position?

I work in the communications department. I am the Web editor, so I’m responsible for all the communications that go through our website.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

Could you describe the business challenge that you were trying to address when you first approached Vardot?

We wanted to reinvent our website because it was very clunky. We were looking for a company that was up to date on the most recent developments in Web design. We also wanted to work with an open source Web platform and content management system.

SOLUTION

Could you describe the actual scope of their involvement in detail?

The project was already underway when I joined the organization. Vardot was working on the design and providing us with wireframes and prototypes. They worked on development and, at a later stage, helped with content migration from our previous website. They built the site in Drupal, which was new for us, so they provided training as well. They’ve kept us up to speed with how things were going with the project.

Can you provide a ballpark dollar figure for the size of the work that they’ve done for you?

We have spent $50,000 working with Vardot.

What is the status of your relationship?

The relationship is ongoing. We were happy with the results of the website development, so we asked them to provide ongoing support.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

In terms of results, could you share any statistics, metrics, or user feedback that would demonstrate the overall success of your engagement?

The comments we got from users were positive, and people were happy with the website. We saw improvements in numbers because traffic was up for the new website. Also, our numbers have improved in terms of donations. I think this project played a role in all of these things.

When working with Vardot, is there anything that you would consider unique about their practice that distinguishes them from other vendors?

The team we had was very technical and had a lot of experience in programming. We found them easy to talk with, and they were always ready to help us with any questions we had or any issues that we needed to address urgently. Overall, I think they’ve been very cooperative and have always maintained a professional attitude. They have a very good team in terms of technical know-how and expertise.

In retrospect, are there areas in which you think they could improve as a service provider?

Looking back, we might have done a few things differently, but that’s primarily because we come from a large organization. We have a lot of stakeholders who were interested in this project, which made the process a bit messy on our end. We could have organized ourselves better internally and had a better understanding of what we were trying to achieve.
