On the BC Platform

What do your clients like about using BC?

A big part of our process is to recognize that a website is not just a website: it’s one of the most visible extensions of a company’s brand. Because of that, our clients love that BC functions as a portal for their entire online business, instead of just a place to update content. It’s also clear to them that the system is designed from the perspective of a client instead of a developer. Too many other systems are built the other way around.

How is developing on BC different from your previous development process?

BC is an accelerator. As a digital agency in a fast-paced market, we pride ourselves on moving at the speed of our clients (or faster). BC allows us to do that. There are so many aspects of the platform that would require much more lead time on other systems: eCommerce, reporting, CRM capabilities, form development, just to name a few. 

What are the strengths of BC compared to other systems?

Again: it’s all-in-one, and it’s faster to deploy. Our clients don’t have to worry about getting five separate bills and having five different logins. It’s all there.

On Being a BC Partner

What are your favorite aspects of the Partner Program, and why?

It’s been an important part of our transformation from startup to full-service digital agency. Simply put, it allows us to do big things for small- and mid-sized businesses. 

Looking back, how do you feel about your decision to become a BC Partner?

We feel great about it, and so do the dozens of clients that are using it.

How has BC helped you grow your design business?

It’s allowed us to do things not otherwise possible given time and budget constraints. It’s an amazingly powerful tool.

Show us some of your work on BC

Park Grill Chicago

Park Grill is a quintessential Chicago restaurant, right next to the “Bean” in Millennium Park.

We paired this award-winning restaurant with an award-winning site, pairing the CMS with integrations with openTable, Twitter, and a host of custom modules. BC was a perfect platform.

Youcopia

YouCopia is known as “Ah-ha! for the home,” a company focused on creating products that make a home feel more calm and in control.

We reimagined their online presence as a clean, simple, engaging site, using BC as a launching pad.

Greenside Design Build

Greenside is a custom home builder and remodeling company in the city of Chicago and surrounding suburbs, and needed a brand new site to show off their beautiful homes. We utilized BC modules, forms, and reporting to make this site happen.
