BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

We provide an online drum lessons platform. I am a co-owner of the business.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with Arty Geek?

I had been searching for a company which could help my partner and I make our dream come true. We needed a system which could work for our audience and needed assistance on the development side, which is where we got together with Arty Geek.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided designs to Arty Geek for our responsive WordPress website, and they developed it. The site has 10–15 pages, some of which are constantly changing.

How did you come to work with Arty Geek?

In the beginning, we were working with some freelancers, who typically have their own boundaries and issues; they can become unavailable without notice and so on. We asked a few friends if they knew of a company that could provide a good service. My partner's friend told him about Arty Geek, and we contacted them. It was the fourth company we'd used, but we stuck with Arty Geek. They are amazing.

How much have you invested with Arty Geek?

The cost of Arty Geek's work has been around $2,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working with Arty Geek one year ago. The relationship is ongoing on a maintenance basis. We give Arty Geek's team batches of work regularly, and we talk on a daily basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

Arty Geek strictly developed our website, so they haven't been involved in any analytics for it. Since I am the designer and I'm also responsible for user testing, its success will depend on me. Arty Geek completed the job on an amazing level, but we've just started marketing the site.

How did Arty Geek perform from a project management standpoint?

Arty Geek is the best company we've found in terms of project management. I worked directly with their manager, who was available most of the time and was always responsive and communicative. Arty Geek's approach gave me peace of mind.

What did you find most impressive about Arty Geek?

We have no boundaries in terms of communication with Arty Geek's team. This is an extremely important aspect for me, given my past with freelancers.

We don't have the most complex platform on the market, but I still appreciated never being hindered by Arty Geek's team in terms of design. I have no limits in this respect: I can design whatever I want, and Arty Geek will make it happen.

Are there any areas Arty Geek could improve?

No. Arty Geek is very good at what it does. The team delivered things on time and has been professional and nice to communicate with.

RATINGS

  • 5.0 Scheduling
    ON TIME / DEADLINES
    Anytime we needed our project manager, she answered within the hour, most of the time within minutes.
  • 5.0 Cost
    Value / within estimates
    The cost is perfect for us as a self-financing startup company. I would pay Arty Geek more if I had more, but our situation prevents it. I could also find a developer for $5 per hour, but the package provided by Arty Geek makes it worth it.
  • 5.0 Quality
    Service & deliverables
    Arty Geek thinks out of the box and considers things that don’t occur to me. This in itself is amazing, given that most other developers, especially freelancers, will only do what they're told to do without asking questions or expanding on an idea.
