"Working with Can Factory has been a rewarding and educational experience that has ultimately resulted in positioning VOX as the number 1 exhibitor in the region from a digital e-commerce perspective. The team have worked extremely hard to ensure that the timezone differences and communication issues that often hamper multi-regional IT projects are always kept to a minimum. The Can Factory project management tool meant that we always knew where the project was and what was required of us and the other third parties involved in the project. All technical projects have an element of risk and complexity particularly as VOX operates across multiple territories and has significant complex requirements of our digital assets. I am happy to say that we worked together as a team to overcome each challenge as we faced them. I look forward to working with the Can Factory team for many years to come."
We often work with tight budgets and even tighter timescales. We also normally develop in-house. However we brought Can Factory in to build us a new iPad app and get it into the store before Apple's Christmas cut-off. And they did it. With only 10 weeks to go, not only did they build us an app with all of the agreed functionality, but they also managed to complete the task with a week to spare, giving us time to release a second version with even more features. Testament to their can-do attitude and depth of experience.
ITV had an ambitious project to bring its website back in-house, rebuild its website and launch a brand new ITV player all to very tight deadlines. We looked for competent partners to help accelerate this project. Can Factory were chosen for their experience in high traffic web application development. All the work Can Factory contributed was of an outstanding standard, delivered on time and professionally.
The Benjamin Franklin House project was a complex project with a tight time scale. The task: take a mostly derelict, Grade I listed 1730s building and in less than a year make it a showpiece for 21st technology – opening on Benjamin Franklin’s 300th birthday in January 2006. Your team provided the help we needed to scope, select and manage the installation of the right equipment that would deliver on our aims to create a dynamic museum and educational facility in Franklin’s only remaining home. The challenges included choosing the right technology to make the Historical Experience possible. The Historical Experience, run from a sophisticated show control system, is a heritage first, employing a ‘museum as theatre’ approach which integrates live performance with cutting-edge sound and visual projection. The Student Science Centre, Scholarship Centre, and offices likewise needed the technology to drive them forward. In a building where we weren’t allowed to place a nail into any of the original panelling, they helped us work through innovative solutions including voice over IP.
Can Factory have helped Cineworld to define and implement our digital strategy across multiple channels for more than eight years. The long-term partnership built with Can Factory has never ceased to impress, and they have helped ensure that we have consistently maximised the potential of all of our digital channels to drive sales, and improve customer acquisition and retention.
The whole project was only a few months long and we were highly impressed with the code quality but more importantly for us, the attention to detail and depth of business understanding. Their genuine ability and aptitude to chip in ideas, from the most junior coder up to senior management, with their keenness to impress, was hugely refreshing. If you are looking for a team of people that have a culture of actually wanting to help – with the technical & organisational ability to deliver that help – I’d highly recommend these guys.
Following the success of the 15th Conference of Commonwealth Education Ministers, I would like to say thank you for your invaluable help during the event. Both yours and Stuart’s priceless advice, input and expertise made the conference one to remember for all who took part. We have had excellent feedback from the Commonwealth Secretary-General, Commonwealth Ministers and other delegates about the hard work and effort all the staff put into the event. Once again, thank you for all of your efforts and I look forward to working with you again in the near future.
The Bulletpoint website which you and your team designed is a significant improvement on its predecessor. We have built in website access as part of our core value proposition and have seen an upturn in Bulletpoint renewal rates since doing so. We have also had good feedback from customers, and most importantly, the site is operationally very efficient i.e. straightforward to update, and easy to navigate. Thanks for your help in constructing a site we can be proud of and that supports the Bulletpoint proposition.
