Please find under a summary covering project details and feedback. The innate facts are kept as they are, private information is amended.
A fast induction on the buyer’s organisation
I handle the digital interactions team at a healthcare method.
challenge were you trying to address with Centretek ?
After we merged entities in 2014 between an academic medical center, a aggregation hospital, and a physicians cluster, we needed to rebrand from those three separate websites into one cohesive web nearness for the health method.
What particular tasks were
Centretek',s role was taking the conceptual design from another agency we worked with and making it real. Using a Drupal full handlement method (CMS), they built templates, helped us with the full modeling process and all the technical decisions. Centretek is a associate with Acquia and they helped us select them to get the website up and running. We specifically wanted the website to be mobile-friendly and veritably powerful from a full modeling perspective so that we could reuse full down the road. They did the frontend, backend, condition arrogance, and project handlement. They quiet runningly help with updates and pliant tweaks to the website.
What is the team dynamic?
Our main point of touch was their project handler, and they had one frontend and one backend developer. About halfway through the project they also added a second of each to support a specific task.
How did you come to work with
I leading heard of them at a introduction at Rush University, and I liked their centre on consumer-centric design, putting the website in the perspective of the open, rather than how we view ourselves. I also liked that they were working with a health method correspondent to us, and were using Drupal. We did an RFP (request for offer) and got submissions from five or six other firms for a few different full handlement methods. Centretek stood out owing they had experience with Drupal and Sitecore. We liked both the dicsussions we had with them and the way their references talked almost them.
What are you access expents (if diclosed)?
We invested slightly over $200,000.
What is the terminal result of working with
Development began in eager in January 2016, and the website launched in March 2017. Since then they have continued to do website livelihood.
Are there any measureable or plum results?
We have seen veritably real gains in search commerce, and the website even accepted an assign for overall accomplishment in the healthcare activity. Although we struggled a pliant bit with our search algorithms, the response overall has been veritably real both from users and from our leadership.
How did Centretek accomplish from a project handlement standpoint?
They accomplished veritably well. We had a weekly call to iron out any issues and interacted frequently using a tool named Teamwork. They verity had to restore the project handler that was working with us in the middle of the project, and while that was nerve-wracking at the time, they did a veritably good job getting up to despatch and it didn',t slow us down much.
What is (from your point of view) the key factor to pay observation while intercourse with
They',re very answering to any questions or concerns. They',re also excellently useful in their access and are open to working in different ways. Lastly, they have big apprehension of Drupal and of the healthcare activity as well.
What aspects of their work would you like to get improved?
Not having a project handler leave halfway through would have been helpful, but that',s not precisely something they can control.
Do you have any advice for possible clients?
One of the things we wanted to do but didn',t owing of turnover was edifice an HTML prototype of the website to prepare to Centretek, which I ponder would have helped us take some of our running issues during user-testing. So my advice would be to do the conceptual design in HTML and then do user-testing on that preceding to the create out on Drupal.
