Case Study

Overview                                                                             

Problem: One of the largest charitable giving and donor-advised funds in the United States, their website was outdated and Schwab wanted to revamp their website to give their users a modern Web experience, increase online leads, and make new services and features available to potential donors.

Solution: We worked with Reflectur, a leading San Francisco Agency. The site was designed by James Sakamoto, then at Reflectur, and implemented by Blisstering. Blisstering worked with Reflectur to understand the client's needs, and then implemented the redesigned site in Drupal. We added several dynamic features such as calculators, questionnaires, and wizards, which generated PDF reports with specific advice based on the answers. We integrated with SalesForce, and provisioned for single sign-on with their main Schwab trading accounts. Blisstering delivered a quality solution on time and within budget.

You are the Agency's CEO / Managing Partner

You want to grow your business, increase profits and reduce costs. You want to do it in a way that enhances your Agency's reputation (certainly not reduce it in any way at all), because you’ve worked hard to build your agency and its reputation. Picking a bad offshore development partner might add several points to your margins but could be disastrous if it does not work.

The most expensive parts of growth for your company are the investments in software engineers, plus a new manager or two, all of which need to be committed to before you capture any new revenue. To make the situation riskier, although business has been good these past two years, you know things can turn rapidly, you have been through both feast and famine. The last position you want to put yourself in is to commit to more overhead and salaries, and then along comes the famine – could it put you under this time? Last time you said you would never make that mistake again!

So what can you do? You don’t want to miss the upside of this hot market, but you don’t want to be over-leveraged when tough times arrive.

The solution is to engage with a high quality, stable development partner such as Blisstering. You add no overhead and do not commit to no new salaries, yet benefit from additional capacity, new technical skills and the cost differential. We have dozens of happy customers that would love to talk to you about their experience with us. Call us at 510-596-1711, or write to us at info@blisstering.com, or simply press the contact us button below and we'll get back to you pronto.

You are the Director of Digital Strategy / Resources

You are a technical manager, you take pride in delivering simple yet elegant solutions. However, that’s getting more difficult to do, the boss is always on you to cut costs, but you’re to the bone already. The simple fact is that good mobile and web engineers in this market are in demand and expensive. You would like to get your people trained in the hotter new technologies such Drupal or Mobile, but there is no time or money. The sales team is on a hot streak right now, you really need more engineering capacity, but history tells you this two-year hot streak will come to an end someday. 

Using an Offshore development shop is an option, some of your friends have used them with mixed results. You feel the answer to that problem is to choose carefully, do your research, talk to as many of their clients as you can, not just the 2 or 3 happy ones they give you. And besides, you don’t want to be on conference calls at 2 AM talking to people that barely speak English.

One such great company is Blisstering. We work when you work, our Principals are located in the United States and our project managers all speak excellent English.

You are the Agency's Creative Director

Have you ever created a great design, the perfect creative concept, but your digital group did not have the ability, or the time to “make it happen”? Or, did you ever have one of those situations where some programmer decided they knew more about what the UI should look like than you did and they fought you every step of the way? Or, your UI programmer’s skills were so old their first version looked like something from 1995?  

At Blisstering we don’t fight you for control of the creative process, we know what we are good at and like to say “If you can visualize it, we can build it”. We have the latest technical skills, so your UI won’t look like a PacMan screen from 1983, we facilitate the melding of the left and the right brain, we call that Blisstering. We want rapid prototyping of the UI and functionality so you can see if we “got it”, and if it “looks like you thought it would”. We welcome changes, we expect the creative process to be iterative, we don’t lock you into one opportunity to be creative, because better ideas can come at any time. We use a sports metaphor to describe this phenomenon: “the game is starting to slow down for him”.  --- “The technology may be a blur to you, but it’s slow motion to us”. 

Your solution is to engage with a high quality, stable outsource partner such as Blisstering. You gain access to expert technologists that love doing what we do well, which is bringing your perfect creative concept to life. We have literally dozens of happy customers that would love to talk with you about their experience with us.
