Design Strategy & Universal Design Workshops
Reviewed 4 months ago by Ryan Easterly
Role: Executive Director at WITH Foundation
Sidebench joined our digital health initiative for our Universal Design workshop, which allowed adults with developmental disabilities to give feedback to designers and developers. The workshop was a success, so we expanded it to a symposium and a project we’re calling Beta Day. The hope is to reach a broad array of representatives from tech companies and support them in beta testing their products with adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

Our needs are unique among Sidebench’s clients, as they’re not developing technology for us. They provide insight into the way designers and developers think and are ultimately responsible for creating the educational components of the workshop. We want to make sure we speak to the tech community in the best way possible, so Sidebench delivers more content and better outreach. Their insight is strong, and they’re great to work with.

Custom Global Enterprise Platform + iOS Application
Reviewed 6 months ago by David de Jesus
Role: Founder & Principal Engineer at AUGx
Sidebench was key in our business roadmap, and helped build and scale our suite of iOS & Web Platform Apps. Sidebench’s focus on product management and tech leadership has led to a seamless collaboration with Red Bull’s in-house IT and development teams. The Sidebench team was been able to help guide the vision as well as a back it up with a solid technical team. It's been a seamless process since the beginning. One of the big wins is that the app is being used across all business units. The system and application is now currently being heavily used globally for all Red Bull events and continues to be completely supported by Sidebench.

Sidebench Studios delivered exactly what we wanted
Reviewed on 24/3/17 by Jordan Burnier
Role: Marketing Manager at Stampington & Company

With the launch of a brand new title, we wanted to design and build a mobile responsive website that captures our unique brand and mimics the sensory experience of its readers. Some of the challenges were that we also needed to leave room for extensive growth, e-commerce, and a few more capabilities that we just weren't quite ready to utilize at the launch of the new site. Sidebench Studios delivered exactly what we wanted: a beautiful, fluid, and functional website that is mobile responsive and gives us the ability to manage changes/growth in-house while keeping the door open for future e-commerce capabilities. I cannot speak highly enough of the skill and professionalism of their team, open communication throughout, including handling new requests seamlessly, and completing this project on time and within budget. This hasn't always been my experience when outsourcing similar projects. I would highly recommend Sidebench Studios for any interactive web design and developmental projects, e-commerce fixes and additions, mobile optimization, and other related needs.

- Excellent communication and understanding of client's needs. - Fulfillment of expectations on-time and within budget.

The entire experience working with Sidebench was a dream come true. They were attentive to our needs, and took our ideas and transformed them into the website that we always wanted and needed! We definitely recommend them to anyone considering outsourcing their web development/design projects.

We share the same attention to detail - which is hard to come by. They were thourough and made sure to take the time to get everything right the first time.
