The gift of time in your digital agency
Your guide to comparing A]: Drupal or Wordpress project set up with B]: Blutui®
Take a reasonably basic site, a landing page with forms and a product listing requiring a simple database:
A] Steps and time requirement to set up for development on open source web platforms locally:
1. Get a copy of XAMPP or MAMP, a tool that does the setup of Database, Web Server, Server file managers, etc. (This is a one time setup).
30 minutes - 1 hour
2. Download a copy of your web platform of choice (eg. Drupal, Wordpress, etc).
3. Create a new database for each project.
4. Copy downloaded web platform code onto web server.
5. Run web platform installation.
10 - 20 minutes
6. Setup a starter project based on the platform. This is dependent on what the developer thinks their project needs to get started.
7. Begin building project, time required will vary based on scope.
Total project set up time is minimum 95 to 135 minutes on initial setup on first project and thereafter between 65 to 75 minutes on subsequent projects.
B] Steps and time requirement to set up a Blutui® project:
1. Activate project, typically executed by a studio project manager
2. Invite Front-end Dev, typically executed by a studio project manager
1 minute unless external to agency then 2 minutes
3. Set up Courier, front-end dev
3-5 minutes on first project, a one time set up
4. Pull down project, front-end dev
5. Begin building project, time required will vary based on scope. Front-end dev
Steps 2 and 3 are one time set up so not relevant to subsequent projects.
Total project set up time is minimum 6 to 9 minutes on initial project setup project and thereafter between 2 minutes on subsequent projects.
Essentially using traditional technologies such as Wordpress or Drupal, even on a simple site build, there can be as much time spent setting up as building.
This means for every project you can expect to save at least one hour of studio time to direct elsewhere. Every conceivable Blutui project is produced by utilizing a single front-end developer, not only saving time but redirecting valuable resource to more meaningful tasks. Now your studio can create incredible projects in a universal digital delivery platform at a pace that delivers meaningful margins and reduces friction in your agency.
This article covers digital studio project set up and demonstrates a 15x to 36x time advantage when utilizing the Blutui Platform.
This is only the start, with Blutui offering between 2.5x to 2.7x total improved productivity across a broad range of projects delivered in agency studio eco-systems.
