What was the scope of their involvement?
I needed assistance with every aspect of the platform, including design, development, setting up my AWS server, and integrating my SSL certificate. I put together a very detailed requirements document which evolved over time, and they essentially built the platform from scratch.
The site includes a tiered membership functionality. While it’s free to join, paying members have access to exclusive content, particularly industry reports I provide regularly. Paying users may download the report, as well as an accompanying video and audio file.
The magic is really in the backend, as the system they built allows me to organize complex information and make updates as needed. But the user experience is also seamless, guiding members toward making a purchase or accessing the information they seek.
What is the team composition?
I was assigned a project manager and also communicated regularly with a designer and two developers.
How did you come to work with Xtreem Solution?
They responded to a solicitation I posted on Upwork. I received bids from several companies, but one of Xtreem Solution’s representatives took the proactive step of reaching out to me personally. I explained my project to him and he reiterated the key points of our conversation. The fact that he’d actually listened to my needs gave me a sense of confidence.
Even though I hadn’t finished considering other bids, I hired them on the spot and haven’t looked back since.
How much have you invested with them?
Over $20,000, which is an extremely good value. They could honestly charge a lot more because they're very good at their job and committed to client satisfaction. They definitely earned every dime.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together in September 2017 and completed the project in January 2018. We're working on some minor bug issues right now, but the site is live and I'm currently uploading content.
