Envative Testimonials: Butler Till, Custom Web Application Development


hi my name is Pat Willome I worked at butler till we’re an advertising agency media communications agency in rochester new york and i’m a data management supervisor here so we work on we work with insurance to client national insurance clients that has about 18,000 individual licensees there was a lot of opportunity for error you know and also i was kind of the main person that was organizing a lot of that data and so the phrase you know i got hit by a bus what was going to happen when you work with seven or eight thousand agents if one agents piece of information is wrong it’s that agents money that’s going to that media so it’s super important to make sure all that accurate we realize we have our limitations you know sure we can build an Access database but we need to take this to the next level and so that’s where Envative came in Envatives bread and butter is developing software developing databases and doing a lot of that complex stuff we worked with Envative previously so that played definite large role in our decision making um you know we were with this new project that we knew we had to develop software of some sort to solve this problem and it was a very large investment on our part so we had to reach out to a few different vendors so we reached up to three software developers locally Envative included in that and you know we gave a summary of the problem what we were dealing with and asked them to come with a solution and obviously cost and all the other things that come along with that it was the thought that went into the response the RFP that they could have looked and said well we have a working relationship with them let’s just tell them we can do it but they didn’t do that they really took it seriously they put a lot of time and do coming up with timelines and challenges and um just all the things that you really need to think about what you’re about to spend a very large amount of money to build a piece of software and you know they also had experience with this specific type of data which the data as you can understand incredibly complex and there’s a lot of great relationships to think about so again and with the obvious choice and they also the solution that they offer which was you know web-based application with a sequel database background and it just just made sense the final product um is awesome and it’s really cool that you know they’ve taken something that I you know I had an idea of what I wanted to be able to translate all of those excel documents into a working piece of software is no easy feat and they’ve done an awesome job with it so to give you some perspective I was managing let’s say 20 documents probably on a monthly basis some would change all the time some wouldn’t change as frequently but to consolidate all of that down to one piece of software has saved me and my team a drastic amount of time previously I was organizing all of that information and I would have one excel document and I would create five different versions of it i would give it to individual people internally and take it back and have to recompile that information and that step is completely gone it’s a true relationship I’m a steward of butler till’s money so i have a very specific budget to work with in to make sure i get software that i need and so they were or they’ve been really good about making sure to keep me in line because with software development you can go crazy you know you can add all kinds of different things and it’ll be nice if we can do this itd be nice if we could do that and you can eat up that budget suddenly your half way through the project there’s no budget left and that would be a big problem would I recommend a native absolutely yes totally I was not paid any money for this endorsement but I was given a coffee mug
