Hands down, Charlie and his team were one of the best vendors I have ever worked with in my career. The Powerful team has the process of redesigning a website down to a science, which makes the process smooth and highly efficient. Their expertise in the electric cooperative industry makes the investment so worthwhile. My team found the ADA compliance and accessibility training especially valuable.
In my research for design firms, Powerful was not the least expensive option, but by far the most experienced for our industry and they completed our redesign on schedule. In one year’s time, we have already experienced excellent return on investment based on how efficient our website is to update on the back-end and how user-friendly our site is for members to navigate. We utilize their support services and they are always very responsive and our requests are generally resolved within an hour or two. Needless to say, I would highly recommend working with Charlie and the Powerful team!
We went through a website re-design in 2020 to ensure ADA compliancy, (and many other updated design features). I definitely recommend Powerful. The Powerful team is really talented and I enjoy working with them every chance I get!
We broke out content with headings, organized sections with accordions, and created visually appealing layouts for top pages. All this made for more engaging content. Additional online forms were created along with converting PDF's into web content that greatly increased accessibility. The client was great to work with and really cared about their site's content!
