We work with you to create a strategy that drives your future growth.

You know you’ve started a great business. You’ve worked hard, you have a great product, and you’re ready for the next step. But what should that be? Where do you start? At Gauge, we feel it is our responsibility to do everything within our power to ensure that your project is successful. We know from our experience that the best way to ensure success is to analyze the business goals and technical needs prior to beginning an implementation through a formalized, discovery process.

Each discovery project is customized to fit your specific business needs and goals. These projects start at $5,000 and typically take 4-8 weeks to finish (depending on the scope). Contact us today to catapult your project forward. We can start your project within days.

Strategic Business Discovery

Strategic Business Discovery

Technology projects, like website builds, are investments that carry significant risk and opportunity for a business. The opportunity afforded by an implementation that successfully addresses your business goals can increase revenue, reduce costs, and save time. Our goal is to take a deep dive into your business and truly understand what your needs are, not just from a technical standpoint, but from a business process standpoint. We want to understand your company’s past and present to help you realize the future. Our strategic business discovery includes:

  1. Writing your project’s business goals
  2. Documenting your project objectives
  3. Creating a total cost of ownership (TCO) analysis
  4. Creating customer personas
  5. User Testing your current store (premium option)
  6. Competitor analysis (premium option)
  7. A collaborative two-day workshop at your location (premium option)

Comprehensive Project Plans

Comprehensive Project Plans

After we have completed our technical and business discovery, we provide our written recommendations as a fixed-price proposal for a well-defined Statement of Work (SOW). This written proposal includes a project plan with an accurately estimated timeline.

Our SOWs include:

  1. Information Architecture and Sitemap
  2. Complete project plan with suggested platform selection

Do Business Personally

Building your eCommerce business is not something to take lightly, with so many details required to scale a business, we have specifically designed our Project and Account Management Team to have one of the lowest industry client to Account Manager ratios. This results in a deeper understanding of your business which leads to implementing more effective solutions. At Gauge you don’t get an Account Manager or Project Manager, you get an ally.
