Introduce your business and what you do there.
I’m the director of people and culture at a real estate company.
OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE
What challenges were you trying to address WebMob Technologies?
We wanted to build our own real estate search site from scratch. There are a lot of out-of-the-box solutions, but we wanted something more robust.
What was the scope of their involvement?
They built a sophisticated search and map search feature. The solution also updates as you scroll through. Users can filter for certain criteria. It was also important to us that the service was quick and responsive. Additionally, they integrated lead capture functionalities throughout the site.
What is the team composition?
We worked with a team of 18 people. Our direct points of contact were the CEO and a project manager.
How did you come to work with WebMob Technologies?
I think we put an ad up on a freelancer website. We interviewed several candidates. At first we were hesitant to hire a company, rather than an individual. However, after talking to multiple options, their capabilities stood out.
How much have you invested in them?
We spent about $250,000 for this project.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in April 2019. The site launched at the beginning of March 2020. They’re still working with us to provide updates and make modifications as needed.
RESULTS & FEEDBACK
What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?
We’re benchmarking ourselves against one of our major competitors. Their site converts about 1 in 8,000-9,000 leads. In contrast, our site converts about 1 in 4,000 leads. So far, we’ve had about 12 in-person client appointments and made 3 sales as a result of the site.
How did WebMob Technologies perform from a project management standpoint?
They were very communicative. They gave us lots of opportunities for input and feedback. One of the things I appreciated about them was that they shared a lot of insight and were willing to push back on things. They didn’t just take our orders.
I think they used Trello to manage the project.
What did you find most impressive about them?
The quality of their work is really good. The site they built allows us to be competitive with larger companies whose budgets were probably far larger.
Are there any areas they could improve?
No, nothing comes to mind.
Do you have any advice for potential customers?
Communication is really important because of the time difference, as they’re based in India. As a result, It’s important to be flexible when you schedule meetings.
