Hey There! We Build:
But mostly just really cool websites…
College Labor approached BambooDev with a simple yet powerful idea: let’s connect hard working college students with people who need help with chores and odd jobs. This idea became a succesful web app in which everybody wins: students can earn some much needed money in between classes, and customers can access qualified and dependable help right in their neighborhood. Need help moving furniture, or painting the house? College Labor takes care of everything, and ensures that dependable, hard working help shows up on time.
BambooDev worked with College Labor on all aspects of design and development, and the end result is a flexible web app which works on desktops, tablets, and smart phones. Geolocation shows available jobs in any given region, and secure credit card processing allows customers to safely pay for jobs online. Twitter and SMS integration notifies students of job openings, which keeps customers happy and informed within seconds of posting their job.
College Labor was started in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is now expanding to other cities nation wide.
In the spring of 2007, TalkFree was in need of help. Although their business was rapidly growing, the look and feel of their website was holding them back. Lengthy pages of text, combined with cumbersome navigation menus and a poorly designed user interface were not representing the company in the best possible light. TalkFree is a leading edge technology company, and their website needed to reflect this. Existing customers were confused, and potential customers weren’t signing up.
BambooDev was hired to work with the TalkFree marketing department in an effort to redesign the TalkFree corporate identity and online presence. Within just a few short weeks, an entirely new site was designed – one with a foundation in usability and compelling aesthetics. Clear, concise navigation and brand management helped TalkFree stand out in the increasingly competitive VoIP industry. Search Engine Optimization best practices were applied, and visitor traffic increased 25% within 3 months. More importantly, the customer conversion rate increased by a staggering 40%.
TalkFree continues to be a leader in the VoIP business, and BambooDev is excited to have helped TalkFree design, develop and launch 12 additional brand sites since 2008, in over 7 different languages. As of fall 2013, BambooDev is working with TalkFree in both mobile and web application development. The future is bright for TalkFree, and BambooDev is thrilled to be a part of it!
