The Review
Feedback summary: 

The development know-how that they brought to the table was exactly what was needed for the project. While it’s been a rich learning experience, there was some miscommunication regarding expectations at the start, but they more than made up for it with their expertise and impressive design skills.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the co-founder and head of product of a financial technology (fintech) platform that provides financial wellness for the masses. Our service introduces everyone to savings and we give away cash weekly to incentivize clients to save.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very, LLC?

This was our first time building a native app for our business and we were using React and React Native. We had a bunch of engineers on our team who could do a good portion of the work, but we wanted to apply best practices from an engineering and development standpoint, as well as leverage their expertise so that we could avoid some of the common pitfalls of this kind of work. We also needed help with some design-oriented challenges that we had.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Prior to starting with them, we already had a desktop app that was both live and in production. We relied on Very for designing and developing our iOS app. We only worked with the developer for one week. He took on some very specific tasks and gave us some advice on ways to handle the situation.

They’ve been particularly good at thinking through some of the nuances that happen when you’re interacting with a mobile app, and we’re now at the tail end of debugging and deploying it.

What is the team composition?

We’ve worked with one developer, one designer, and one project manager.

How did you come to work with Very, LLC?

We knew one of their founders.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working with them in March 2017 and the collaboration is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Our application had a big codebase to begin with, so it was hard to get the developer really involved in a short period of time, but he did help us fix a couple of challenging issues. The insight they provided is a by-product of their previous experience, which is exactly what we were looking for.

We haven’t implemented or tested their designs for the first cut of the app yet, but we’re very pleased with what they produced and are really looking forward to getting them into the application once we’re ready for deployment.

How did Very, LLC perform from a project management standpoint?

Communication was generally fine. We could always get in touch with them when needed.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Their designer is great and we really liked their work. It was a positive experience and we learned several lessons from the first week of working with the developer, which we carried into our engagement with the rest of the team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Our expectations weren’t aligned at the beginning, but we corrected that over time. It seemed like a challenge one would have when there is a salesperson or project management person selling the engagement, and then the people who are actually doing the work are second to know. Other than that, everything was fine.

Both the client and their users are satisfied with Very’s end product. An easygoing atmosphere and exemplary communication skills built the confidence to seek them out again for another engagement .

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the director of product and innovation of a real estate association.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

We needed to develop an informational website.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They did the planning, design, and development of our website. They used Webflow CMS. It was completed in November 2017.

They now do some maintenance work and are engaged with us on a totally different project.

What is the team composition?

We had a product manager and a designer who did frontend development.

How did you come to work with Very?

I met them through a friend several years ago. I didn’t consider partnering with any other companies. I had confidence based on Very’s portfolio and discussions I had with them in the past.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent $30,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2017, and the relationship is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

I’m very satisfied. Our users are pleased to have the website as their resource. There was one bug that was identified and fixed.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

They are excellent and extremely easy to work with, which is why I was propelled to hire them again.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They’re good at communicating with us through multiple channels like chat, phone, and video conferencing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

My only complaint is that they get booked up a few weeks out. We have to have the lead time to know that they’ll be available if we need a quick turnaround on new projects.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Besides from ensuring that they have the right technical skill sets, I would go for ease of collaboration.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The team from Very was fully dedicated to the project, which enabled them to deliver a fully functional website in six weeks while explaining their process in detail. However, an informal planning approach and lack of follow-up led to unexpected costs and confusion about the platform.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m vice president of corporate sales at Infinity Woven Products, a floor covering company that has been a mainstay in the recreational boating and RV industries. We are perpetually expanding into other industries.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

Our current website focuses on the industries we serve and features our different collections and products. We were having a problem with our brand identity and website workflow. We needed to make it easier for consumers to understand our corporate identity while identifying the industries we serve. We wanted them to be able to access the product, gain knowledge and resources, and process orders.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We did a brainstorming session, then hired them to do all the backend coding and development of the website, the workflow, and the UI/UX. It’s a totally new website.

We also got their input on what we needed: what kinds of information, the correct number of clicks and drilldowns, and the appropriate amount of menus, tabs, and pages. We just needed to develop a workflow.

UI/UX was a big deal for us, so they helped us understand how we could redevelop our product, understand the platform, and grow our business by utilizing the site.

What is the team composition?

A small team of one project manager and two developers was dedicated to us for several weeks. Our current active website took about 18 months, but there were still kinks after it was launched. We didn’t have good support, and everything was coded in such a way that we couldn’t fix it ourselves. Very gave us a limited team, but they were dedicated to our project.

How did you come to work with Very?

In the Chattanooga area, their founding member, Sheldon [Co-Founder, Very], is legendary for his humility, accessibility, and great value. If his name is attached to a project, it’s going to be high-quality. Since his name is attached to Very, we expected and assumed that would receive good value. We did some research on 2-3 other companies, but we only walked this far down the path with Very.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in December 2017 and the work is ongoing.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The actual work took about six weeks, and the site has the ease of use that we wanted. During the process, I appreciated the dedication of people who were directly attached to the project. We had access to them almost around the clock. As we were wrapping up the project, they walked us through the site. Our satisfaction is 9 out of 10.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

Throughout those six weeks, they held an hour-long meeting every Monday and 10-15 minute standups on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our team is now composing all the site content. Internally, we’re putting in the copy and photos. They built a site we could fully utilize it six weeks. There was confusion about schedules because it was over Christmas, but that’s normal.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Having the full attention of two developers makes a huge difference. I’ve built multiple sites with multiple agencies. Having full-service experts who not only know the backend, but also incorporate customer service into their approach, is incredibly helpful. I’m truly grateful for that opportunity.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Since this project was completed at such a fast pace, it would have been great to have more follow-up. Two to three weeks after everything is done, it’d be great to have a day where we can share the issues we’re having with those developers.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

You can never be thorough enough. It’s important to have some idea of your expectations, and understanding your timeframe is crucial. Make sure that you’re committed to being very transparent with the company that you choose. If you’re not getting feedback, if you don’t feel that same level of transparency, then get out. Our process was so nice because of that dedication. It’s very rare for a web development company not to add surprise costs and let something drag out. It was nice to know we had that dedication.

Feedback summary: 

The bank’s social media presence grew significantly, growing from 400 Facebook likes to almost 17,000. Their work ensured that the company grew naturally into its new market. The team was extremely communicative, taking feedback on board, and meeting all deadlines.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I have since left Amalgamated Bank but while there I was chief marketing officer, and later also managed branch, ATM, online, mobile, and bank operations, as well as the marketing.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

Amalgamated is nearly 100 years old. The company had not rebranded in a long time and needed to create a modern look and a message that appealed to a broader audience while still catering to its niche base. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Firstly, they were our social media agency. There was really no strategy whatsoever in terms of social media. Facebook was the main social media channel, but the page had only about 400 likes. We brought Very on to help us with our social media strategy, to implement our social media, and to expand our presence.

The other project that they helped us with was our website, particularly the backend infrastructure. Our technology team was pretty small and stressed, so we outsourced website development. We had someone who did the UX and then Very did the backend for us so two projects.

What is the team dynamic? 

There were one or two people on the team.

How did you come to work with Very?

They were referred to us by our CEO who had a connection through the union. They’re right in our price point and were flexible and easy to work with. What we liked is that we work with them directly.

How much have you invested with them?

I couldn’t tell you since I’m not there anymore. 

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with them in 2013, and the project ended in 2015/2016.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The branding work was a big success. The goal was to expand very naturally from where the company was. The work was implemented within the timeframe that we had set out. 

On the social side, within a very short timeframe, they were able to expand our likes through organic growth by thinking about the content and when to post. We also ran some contests and boosted some posts, but not many — just in the $25 range when we had really good content. We probably had close to 17,000 followers when I left. We did switch and bring it in-house over time, but they definitely put us on the right track. It was really them that got us up and running and built out the social presence.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

Jesse [Partner, Very] is always available and checks in regularly. He has an amazing capacity and is always just a phone call away. I’ve worked with many vendors in my career, and I can tell you the ones that I like to work with are those who go beyond their contract and are communicative. You know what they're doing and you know they will pick up the phone or stop by when you need to talk to them. Very always asked and processed our feedback. That's good.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I keep in touch with Jesse, and I think that’s a good sign. I think he’s a good connector. For example, they are happy to recommend a company for work they can’t complete. They are willing to work with you. Every company is different, and I found them very easy to work with.

They constantly change their model and update. They don’t just stick with something because it’s worked before. They’re constantly thinking about the next thing.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No.

Feedback summary: 

Over a three year period, the platform performed exceptionally well and presented no technical issues. Very distinguished themselves with their straightforward communication, collaborative methodologies, and valuable advice. They continually showed their investment in the platform's success.

 

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the head of programs and funds at a professional society for engineering professionals around the world.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

We were looking to build a platform for a startup competition that we have for hardware businesses. We were starting from scratch, so we were looking for a software provider to help us think through, scope, and execute platform development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Very helped us from start to finish on the competition platform, which included the visual identity and the CMS [Content Management System]. They helped us understand the kind of information we needed, how it needed to flow, and what the interaction between the applicants, judges, and different user profiles would look like.

They gave us advice and options in terms of cost and complexity. They tailored the platform to our needs as we worked through the process. In the end, we got an online platform that is fully customizable from our side. We like the look-and-feel of it, and it’s a comprehensive solution that’s tailored exactly for our needs.

They have a very rigorous process in how we engage with them, which is very helpful in terms of getting the results we need. The domain expertise and methodology has been very useful for us, and their experts understand our subject matter.

They used Ruby for the platform framework, and we’ve been through a number of phases with them. Working in sprints worked well because we were able to complete what was needed for the first year’s competition. We’ve also been able to improve the platform over time, so we’re happy with their process and flexibility.

What is the team dynamic?

In the beginning, we had some very strategic guidance from Very's senior management team, which included their CEO, COO, as well as some of their chief strategists and design resources. There were three people who were overseeing the project from start to finish.

We worked in sprints with a team of five on the actual project, including one project manager, two designers, and two developers.

How did you come to work with Very?

I found them through our network of friends based on the context of what we were trying to do. I didn’t know any of the team beforehand. A shared contact had used them and was very happy with their work.

How much have you invested with them?

We spent between $50,000-$200,000 on the first stage of the project, and more than $200,000 overall.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Very in September 2014. The project has gone through four major iterations, and we’re still working with them on different applications.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The platform has been very robust for us. We’ve had zero issues over the last 3 years, including through every stage of what it’s looked like from a both judge or user perspective. Some of the other projects we’ve worked on didn’t have such a sophisticated approach, so this has been very impressive.

The competition is an open call, so we do get usability questions from the applicants, but they’re always very simple and easy to handle. We’ve had very good feedback regarding usability, because it’s easy to interact with, as well as intuitive. The look-and-feel is appropriate to our constituency.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

Very has been excellent, and we’ve never had an issue with deadlines. There’s always constant communication, and they’re fully transparent about the work they’re doing. We’re currently working on another platform that will be up in a couple months. We’ve always been happy with the delivery of their work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

The process and methodology they use have been very helpful for us. They offer full transparency, and the technology they use to enable that makes us feel like we’re a part of the team.

They’ve also given us helpful advice and assistance which goes beyond development. They’ve curated the right people for our environment, which was very helpful for activities outside the actual product. They helped us with ideas about who to reach out to for particular competitions, and also contacted some of their network they thought would be interested in our work.

They went above and beyond at every step to deliver and be a good development partner working to make the competition successful. They were very helpful from both a business development and awareness perspective.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Any issues that came up were dealt with quickly because of the process they had. I can’t think of anything they could improve upon.

Feedback summary: 

Very's commitment to collaboration, consistent communication, and effective project management created an engaging partnership. The refreshed sites hit their targeted page view counts and won positive feedback from customers.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

Barstool Sports is a media company geared toward millennial men. I’m the head of product, responsible for all our technology products.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

We are a relatively small but expanding company. Our web and mobile sites required a refresh. We were recreating and filling out our internal team, but we needed extra manpower to take that project and get it off the ground. We wanted a modern site built on a new infrastructure that would be more scalable as the site grew, getting us to a place where we could expand incrementally and test things going forward.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The website is built on React. We worked with Very to do some unconventional things around social sharing, including optimization of our ad products in making sure those worked well and kept with latest best practices and modernized methods. We also worked at getting users to view more page views per session. Integrating our recommendation engine and putting recommendations in the right spot was the main metric we were looking to drive with the refresh.

What is the team dynamic?

We had one frontend focused developer, one backend focused developer, and a project manager. Very’s team worked alongside our in-house development team.

How did you come to work with Very?

They were originally referred to us via a contact through one of our investors. We looked at two other companies. Very stood out by how they worked with teams, having a light, fast-moving, weekly sprint framework with a clear acceptance for the client to approve each story at the end of a sprint. We were comfortable that their process would line up with ours, with good communication face-to-face on a daily basis. It would be clear that when we accepted something, it’d be done and everybody would agree that it met the definition we all set forth.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in March 2017 until June 2017.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

Everything they delivered met our expectation. Our main metric for the release was increasing page views per session. We boosted that on both the web and mobile separately by about 10%, which was our target. Our users are super engaged, so we’ve had tons of feedback, mostly positive. Negative feedback has been around ads being too intrusive, but that’s something we just expect. We actually made them a little more intrusive for strategic reasons. In terms of overall experience, it’s been very positive.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

They were fantastic. It was always very clear where they were at. They had great communication and good transparency into their process. They used Pivotal, and it was very effective project management, with no surprises.

What did you find most impressive about them?

It was the way they became an extension of the team. It wasn’t like we handed things off to them. They were engaged developers who talked to our designer on an hourly basis. They became good thought partners in thinking about what the best ways were, the right long-term things to do, and being user centric in the way we are.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, we were very happy with them.

The Review
Feedback summary: 

The final, complex product is in beta but required only limited fixes. Very, LLC employed an agile methodology that included daily stand ups, weekly meetings, and a pivotal tracker. They appropriately prioritized tasks and increased efficiency by combining the frontend developer with a designer.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We are a  business development and relationship management product. It's an online service platform. We enable our clients to leverage their relationships in order to get in touch with the people that they’re trying to do business with, or people who can help move their careers forward. We have a database of about six and a half million people. I am the chief product officer.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Very?

We have a fairly small development team and were looking for a way to accelerate some of our initiatives. 

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

We recently  launched a consumer product offering, and are working on communicating the value of our platform via a freemium site. Very helped us to create newsletter reports that were specific to particular client verticals, where a client who was interacting with the free version of the site could sign up for one and it would deliver them valuable insights that were specific to an industry. They used PHP and React.

What is the team dynamic?

We worked with a team of four people. One project advisor, a combination designer/frontend developer, and  two developers who were working on the backend coding. They worked with us fulltime during the length of the project  

How did you come to work with Very?

A company advisor worked very closely with them in the past and made the introduction to us. 

How much have you invested with them?

Between $200,000 - $1,000,000 USD.

What is the status of this engagement?

We still have a good relationship with them. We plan to engage with them in the future at any point when we have a project that's a good fit for them

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

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

The launch is still in beta for us. But, we’ve been very happy with what they’ve built and it’s been working. We only had to do a limited set of fixes on our side afterwards, despite the complexity of the finished product. We were happy with the outcome, but because we’re still in beta, we don’t have immediate feedback.

How did Very perform from a project management standpoint?

They did very well with that. They have a very agile methodology. We had daily stands ups and weekly planning meetings with them. We used pivotal tracker. It was always clear exactly where they were on a particular initiative. They would always reach out to us if they had any questions. They were very communicative in the sense that we never had any difficulty getting in touch with them. We’ve worked with a number of consultants and they’re definitely at the top in terms of communication and knowing exctly what is being done.

What did you find most impressive about them?

They made sure that the project was well prioritized and we were working on the right things at the right time. Their strategy of combining the front end developer with a designer was unique and pretty cool in terms of process efficiency.

Are there any areas they could improve?

The full team's understanding of the project's business goals could have bee nslightly better. To a certain extent this a challenge all consulting firms face, and Very was better than average here. But there was room for improvement.
