“Ocean 5 Has a Better Custom-Tailored Approach”

“Ocean 5’s proposal for the development of a new website was the only one that stood out as specifically for us. Other proposals looked to be a standard approach with the customer name swapped out and didn’t make us feel the vendors had a genuine interest in enhancing our most public presence. Much of the presentation was actually an interactive discussion where we posed our ideas and concerns, and Simon and Kris presented possible solutions. We moved forward with Ocean 5 for the user discovery in preparation for a full website rebuild and are pleased with the information captured from our 4 key target audiences. Ocean 5 took over content management of our current site which presented the ability to become more familiar with its users and uses.”
