Opportunity and challenge

What challenge were you trying to address?

Our existing website was built over a decade ago. It wasn’t responsive or attractive to our target audience, so we looked for a service provider that could help us revamp it.

Result and feedback

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The product delivered by CitySite isn’t just a website; it is an incredibly modular, responsive, intuitive, and easy-to-use software platform. Moreover, it loads very fast; it takes less than a quarter of a second to load.

CitySite was able to develop advanced features within days, and their designs followed our brand guidelines very closely. Our site selection portal aids us in our core mission and helps us attract new residents and businesses.

Moreover, the website’s CMS makes it incredibly easy for our team to build a new page or blog post. Thanks to this, we now have a dedicated blog, which is easy to populate. This allows us to directly engage with our community by quickly publishing professional-looking blog posts and pushing them through our social media channels.

Before this project, we were unable to interact with our community because we didn’t have the technology to do so. Now, we’re using our site and blog to increase our community engagement.

How did CitySite perform from a project management standpoint?

CitySite’s performance exceeded our expectations. Whenever we discussed a new feature and its release date, it surprised us how quickly they were able to turn it around. Custom development projects often face many bugs and issues and take a long time. However, CitySite’s development process was incredibly agile.

One of our main concerns was getting our site launched very quickly because we were finishing our branding process. We wanted our site and branding launch to coincide with the Economic Development Week in Maryland. 64 Robots was able to deliver, and we did a formal launch during a large tech event in our county that coincided with said week.

What did you find most impressive about them?

CitySite’s creativity and development skills were noteworthy. They provided us with a custom-made site that is so polished that it seems like an out-of-the-box solution. It looks so fantastic and performs so well that it’s hard to believe it was built from scratch. Instead, it feels like a site that has been developed by a large development team over a long period of time.
