What challenge were you trying to address with Divante?
Given the changes in the globe of today’s B2B distribution, we determined to pursue market deviates and vary our selling channels. First, we built a little e-shop with cables (also with Divante), then determined to have a complete transformation from offline to online trade.
What particular tasks were Divante responsible for?
We determined to create an e-trade interface from scratch. Divante began with investigation, including rival analysis, scan investigation, deviate analysis, and activity reports. At that stage, they created personas that reflected the user groups we needed to design for. Afterward, we moved to the design phase. Divante ran the implementation and tests (functional integration, safety, and accomplishment tests). Divante also helped us with choosing which technology to use, and we went with Magento.
How did you come to work with Divante?
We began working on this project with another agency that failed in their work on the user experience. Divante had big mock-ups, and they surprised us with a wide apprehension of e-trade. That’s why we determined to work with them.
How much have you invested with Divante?
The project cost over $500,000.
What is the terminal result of working with Divante?
The project began in March 2012 and ended in July 2013.
Could you share any evidence that would prove the productivity, condition of work, or the contact of the engagement?
After the implementation of TIM.pl, we achieved most of our business goals: business difference, new clients, and betterd business effectiveness. It was also a financial achievement.

What did you find most forcible almost Divante?
Divante surprised us with their wide apprehension of e-trade. They have big experience in the technologies they work on. Divante also has a powerful team of client experience professionals - designers, investigationers, marketers, and analysts, who are very passionate almost their work.
Are there any areas Divante could better?
Divante focuses most on the technological aspects of their work, but they should be more business-oriented. It would be big if they could liberate new ethnical resources to the project faster owing it takes too long to make changes that arise from running needs.
