We’re proud of the work we’ve completed and the digital goals we’ve achieved, but don’t just take it from us! Sometimes you need an outside opinion, so take a look at what some of our clients have said.
“Revamping our Chamber website was a huge undertaking, I think that is why we waited so long to take the plunge. We knew it was going to be costly in time and money. When we met with Chris Edmonds and Element 74 we really weren’t sure what to expect. Those thoughts quickly went away when we started talking about our needs verses our wants. Everybody wants an amazing product, and I know we certainly did, but we really had to access our needs first. I came prepared with several questions, and never missing a beat, Chris provided an answer.
When our board of directors decided to move forward, we met with Chris again and that is when he introduced the “agile process” to us. I will admit, I was scared, I thought there is absolutely no way we would ever be able to accomplish a complete overhaul and redesign in such a short amount of time. We met with Team Alloy and honestly, we all hit it off the very first meet and greet. They were full of life and energy and they pumped us up. That’s when I knew WE could DO this!
I brought in some key Chamber members for our very first official meeting, and the energy in the room was amazing. We literally hit the ground running, and we didn’t stop until launch day. Toni, Carrie, Caleb and Thusith were absolutely amazing. They took our vision and made it become reality. They never once dismissed one of our ideas, our many questions or our input. They truly are some of the most talented individuals that I’ve ever met. They can take a project and think outside the box to make that project truly one of a kind.
The partnership with Element 74 has been a blessing and I can’t wait to see where they take us next when we kick off phase 2, but the friendships that we have gained with Chris and Team Alloy will forever be a part of the Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce family. We will sing their praises to whomever, whenever we can, because their company is top notch, and their staff is amazing!!”Dena Kreitler Executive Director, Ste. Genevieve Chamber of Commerce
Our company has been working with Element 74 for years. I recently took over a project we had been working on and the team has been so helpful with the transition as I learned the ins and outs of the new system. They are always over the top helpful. Always doing what they can to teach me more. Chris B and the entire Delta team are amazing to work with and really listen to our concerns and feedback. They are a top notch crew. Chris E is a lucky guy to have such hard working guys to run this team.
Thanks guys for doing such a great job!Vesper Hawkins Technology Coordinator , Tri-State Water, Power & Air
“Element 74 helped us create a professional, inviting website that communicates our vision perfectly. They were patient with us as we asked many questions throughout the process and expanded our knowledge in how to represent ourselves on the web. When issues came up, they were quick to collaborate, listen well, and find solutions. Austin, Erin and the team worked tirelessly to help meet our launch deadline. I am grateful for their passion, expertise, and ability to take an idea and make it a reality.”Jo Pincosy Internship Director, Sacred Space Ministries
“Website builds can be painful, but this wasn’t the case with Element 74. They were easy to work with, open to our ideas and always moving us in the right direction. We couldn’t be happier with our new digital space. Element 74 has grown into an outstanding company with a dedicated, talented team right here in Cape Girardeau!”Shad Burner Vice President of Business Development, Cape Girardeau Area Chamber of Commerce
“As a non profit organization we needed help with all aspects of web design and media messaging. With limited resources we purposefully align ourselves with companies that offer the best value. Element 74 is one of those companies. Toni and Austin walked us through the process from website design concept to helping us clearly and confidently articulate the mission of our Foundation in our videos. They captured the heart of our school – our students, our educators and the mission we all work so hard to promote: Catholic Education. Thank you Element 74!”Cindy Loida President, Valle Catholic Foundation
“Element 74 helped us design a website for the 21st century. Austin, our project manager, patiently worked with us to get the layout and design to our specifications. Austin and Element 74 proved worthy of our trust and their professional experience was evident during the entire project time period.”Karen Green Chief Executive Officer, SEMO Food Bank
“I had never been through web site development process before and was actually pretty anxious about it. Austin, John, and the Element 74 team lead me through the process with such ease, I quickly learned I didn’t need to be worry. They understood our company vision, the graphics that were needed, and the message to convey. The design was perfect, the process was easy, and the outcome was EXACTLY what we hoped for. The professionalism and the quality of work is impeccable. So grateful to have had Element 74 on this project!”Chelley Odle Director of Marketing, SerenityHospiceCare
“The team at Element 74 was so in tune with what the Safe House for Women needed in our redesigned website. Our online presence is a crucial component of our outreach to victims of domestic violence, and Element 74 got it just right. Since we’ve updated to Easypost 3.3 , we’re able to keep our site content fresh and have even added a blog. Thank you, Element 74!”Jessica Hill Executive Director, SEMO Safe House
“I’m extremely particular and feel like the majority of political websites have the same feel to them. It was very important to me that the website reflect me as a person, as well as my dedication and service to the people of Missouri. Darren and the Element 74 team were very open to any and all of my ideas and made me feel very certain that they had the same vision for my website. They have “can do” attitudes, which I love, and extremely creative to boot! I could not be more pleased with the final product. Quick to return calls and emails….these folks are the best in the business.”Holly Rehder State Representative, 148th District
“When I took on the responsibility of overhauling the website for Atkins Inc. Commercial Cleaning, Turf, Tree and Pest Management I knew I had my work cut out for me, as [our] current site was antiquated. I was not an expert in this particular field, and had to do some research and due diligence to get it right. Chris Edmonds, his team, and Project Manager Austin Bollinger not only demonstrated the experience and track record of designing attractive websites, they had what many of the other web developers didn’t: An understanding of the functionality, and how to capture data while creating a great experience for our customers and prospects.”Rich Blattner Former VP of Business Development, Atkins Inc
“Working with Element 74 has been a very pleasant experience. Austin took the time to listen and truly understand what we were trying to accomplish and responded quickly to changes. I will always appreciate his positive attitude and his willingness to go above and beyond. Austin and Element 74 took a lot of the stress out of the entire process and I am thankful to have this team behind us. “Kim Wilson Director of Marketing, Chateau Girardeau
“My experience working with Element 74 has been beyond satisfactory. Fox Family Dental wanted a way to become mobile friendly and give easier access to patients. Working with Austin is a breeze. He is so helpful. He responded very quickly with any questions or modifications. He has been so knowledgeable and his suggestions were very helpful. It has been a great pleasure working with Element 74 and Austin Bollinger. Happy to have a great team behind the future of FoxFamilyDental.com.”Amber L. Newcomb RDH, BS Practice Manager, Fox Family Dental
“Thanks to Element 74, we now have a stunning new website re-design for our dental practice. Just as importantly, they have improved our search engine ranking which has not only driven measurable traffic to our site, but also significantly increased our inbound call volume.”Bob Fox Owner, Fox Family Dental
“The team at Element 74 was excellent to work with, the knowledge and expertise through all stages of development was outstanding. We are delighted to have Element 74 as a partner in the field of downtown revitalization across the state. We have been thrilled with all of the awesome responses we’ve received from our communities about our new and user friendly website.”Gayla Roten State Director at Missouri Main Street Connection
“Upgrading to Easypost 3.3, powered by Element 74, made uploading new information to the website “pleasurable”. Without Rebekah and Element 74’s staff, the Center’s website would not look as appealing or easier to navigate. Thank you Element 74 for being here for CCC and for other agencies needing your help!”Dr. Sharon Braun Director of Public Relations, Community Counseling Center
“Element 74 helped us design, from scratch, a software that allows all of our weight loss clients to log in and input their weight and food and for us to view that from one screen. They have been so easy to work with and their response times are excellent. The design is so slick and we love it. It is allowing us to take our program to the next level. Thanks team Element 74.”Dr. Eric Becking Owner, Becking Clinic
“The team at Element 74 listened closely, adapted readily, changed frequently, and ultimately came up with exactly what we were looking for. Had we known it could go this well, we would have signed on long ago. Their merging of local, regional, and national content coming from several different content management systems was a key to making this project fly. We now have a seamless look that provides our audience with the best of our public media content and enables WSIU to stay focused on our mission.”Greg Petrowich Executive Director at WSIU
“Simply Outstanding, would be the words to describe the overall service that I received from Austin Bollinger and his team as they transformed Horizon Outreach’s old website into something new and cutting edge for the future. Austin has been extremely helpful and patient. I loved working with Austin, we made a great team. He has a great personality. Austin provided innovative ideas throughout the process. His overall thoughtfulness and ability to help me see the “big picture” in regards to the message we wanted to portray to the public about Horizon Outreach was timely. Personally, I love the arches and 3D look of the new site as well as the overall warmth it portrays. The previous site lacked depth and true content to really tell our story.
Thanks to Element 74, Horizon Outreach now has a website that will garner global recognition and one that will allow us to gain support for our mission!!!
Thanks to Austin, Caleb, Shehan and Zach for their hard work and to Chris for founding such a great company!!”Katrina Johnson President/CEO, Horizon Outreach
“We knew that we needed to update our website and that we needed to showcase our people and our story. After meeting with a few firms we chose Element 74 due to their detailed and from-scratch approach. It didn’t take them long to know exactly what we needed even if we didn’t quite know it yet ourselves. We knew early on that we had made the right decision by their attention to detail and our project manager’s genuine concern to relay our message in a clear and concise manner that fit hand in hand with our bank philosophy and logo. To say we have a great partnership with Element 74 is an understatement.”Robbie Guard Assistant Vice President, MRV Banks
“Element 74 helped us with a total redesign and reorganization of our website, VisitCape.com. Our project manager, Austin Bollinger, did an incredible amount of research on how to maximize our website and brought some amazing ideas to the table. I don’t think the new VisitCape.com would have ended up nearly as innovative without his input. Our new site is both visually appealing as well as easily navigable and very functional. As the new site went live, Element 74’s support team was readily available to handle anything that came up. The transition from the old site to the new site was entirely seamless and has been exceptionally well received. We couldn’t be happier with the service we received from the team at Element 74.”Stacy Dohogne Lane Director of Public Relations, Visit Cape
“Our project manager, Toni, did a great job in keeping our project on schedule, making suggestions and improvements along the way and ensuring our site was a fit for us. After our site launched we have had great support whenever needed from numerous Element 74 team members. We had high expectations when we decided to work with Element 74 for our new Bug Zero website and those expectations have been met or exceeded throughout the process.”Chris Horrell Owner/Manager, Bug Zero
“As someone who helped create Coalition Manager, I can honestly say that it has significantly transformed the efficiency of our organization. Gone are the days of manual counts, hash-marks, paper records and narrative documents. With Coalition Manager, we moved our record-keeping and reportable grant activities from multiple paper and electronic sources to one centralized solution that is both quick and easy to use. Now with a few simple clicks, we have grant required data in a matter of seconds, freeing up the days of work we previously undertook for each progress report.
Unlike generic database management systems, Coalition Manager was designed specifically with our work in mind. So rather than being forced to change our internal processes to fit a canned solution, Coalition Manager functions exactly as we need it to. And because it was built on a fully scalable platform, it can be modified at any time to accommodate our future needs as well.
Our partnership with Element 74 has also been a tremendous benefit. Working with their team has been a joy because of their technical knowledge and extreme responsiveness. Because they understand and appreciate the work of coalitions, they are also able to coach and guide us into best practices. Element 74’s ongoing technical support is also top-notch and friendly. At the Missouri Coalition Against Domestic and Sexual Violence wouldn’t dream of using any other method of documentation.
You deserve at least one easy activity in your day, Coalition Manager is it.”Cheryl Robb-Welch COO MO CADSV
“Coalition Manager puts everything I need in one place. The system saves me time so that I can focus more on revenue development rather than reporting. Coalition Manager has been developed from a state coalition perspective, which makes preparing annual federal grant reports a breeze. The database has tremendous flexibility, an easy user interface, and meets the evolving demands of our growing organization. Our coalition continues to grow and we are mobilizing more individuals, business partners, and service providers. There is no way that we could support this growth with our the membership management capacity that Coalition Manager provides us. It is simply the best system that I have ever used and I would highly recommend it to any state coalition or member association.”Zachary Wilson Development Director MO CADSV
“As a wide-reaching media organization, it was essential for WSIU to design a website with the capacity to respond to our ever-changing needs. Element 74 responded to our needs by developing a custom solution that met our core requirements: e-commerce functions, quick and easy updating, and most importantly – power. We required a site powerful enough to support a multitude of streaming video and audio content – but via an easy-to-use interface for the public. Another key consideration was designing a website that could be integrated with our existing PBS and NPR digital platforms to provide our visitors with a seamless online experience. We are so proud of the new site and have developed a wonderful partnership with Element 74. We couldn’t be happier with the outcome.”Katrina Stackhouse Digital Services Manager at WSIU
“ ‘WOW’ was the unanimous feedback from all 30 owners of Christopher Columbus Condos when the new website was launched! The website far exceeded our wildest dreams. It is simply stunning – the place, people and key features/forthcoming events are conveyed through fabulous pictures, a blog and multiple social media channels – Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, YouTube, Google+ and Trip Advisor. Bookings can be made at the simple click of a button.
We chose Element 74 to do the job based on the unique set of skills its team brings to the table – designers, website developers and project managers who worked in a friendly, interactive, responsive and professional manner with our website development committee under the leadership of Toni Eftink our project manager and Chris Edmonds, the CEO. A great note of thanks to all.
Element 74 is definitely where you want to go to build your website!”Catherine Michaud Condo Owner & Web-Committee Lead
“We are beyond happy with the website Element 74 created for us. From the logo to the overall feel, they helped us create exactly what we were looking for in a website. Our business is a country rustic barn wedding venue, and the website conveys the essence of the venue perfectly! Our project manager, Toni, was helpful, easy to communicate with, and understood what we wanted. Element 74 has designed websites for two of our other family businesses, and we’ve been really pleased with the overall look and ease of use with each of them! Thank you!”Ashley Wenger Venue Manager, Lodge and Loma Linda
“It’s an exciting time at Schaefer’s Electrical Enclosures, and we wanted to help share that excitement with our current customer base while reaching out to a broader base as well. We teamed up with Element 74 to help design website content and a look that helped communicate the work that we are doing. Their team was very responsive to our needs and helped bring forward a result that has made us very proud. Our own team participated in the video adding credibility to what is said as well as employee pride. The Element 74 team is great to work with and we are delighted with our results.”Paul Brauss Former CEO, Schaefer’s Electrical Enclosures
“I understand what my company is selling and I know how to sell it, but I am not a web designer. That isn’t my business. It is, however, Element 74’s business. After shopping with 15 companies or so, I made the decision to go with them. It was one of my better decisions. I felt included but comfortable knowing that they were in control of the project. The result has yielded many positive comments. I now have a website that has the eye-appeal I wanted, the focus I needed, and the flexibility I hoped for. Austin guided me from start to finish with a master’s touch. I couldn’t be happier with their product.”Bob Dale CEO/Therapist, The Dale and Hancock Center
“Element 74 has the instinctive ability to empathize with our mission and the capacity to magically transform our concept into prose and interactive graphics which engage the reader.
Element 74’s technologies allows the reader to ask questions, volunteer, register for events, make donations and I receive notice in real time! The real time notice feature is a valuable tool. The technology notifies me by email, gives me the ability to acknowledge the person quickly, Another significant feature is that the program collects the contact information of the individuals who volunteer and register for events.
Levi’s Adventure Trail is one of the projects of Levi’s Children’s Charity, a non-for-profit charitable organization with supports projects and efforts which restore hope, happiness and health to children and families. We must continue to evolve, refine and stay up on the latest technology in order to reach our target audience. We know that Element 74 is on our team, they understand our mission and match us to the technology to we need to support our mission.
Element 74 takes the question ‘is this possible?’ and they make it happen!”Viney Mosley President Levi's Children's Charity
“Being a small state coalition with four full time staff and 32 member programs, it was increasingly difficult for us to manually key in all of the information being reported by our members. Our previous method of using Excel spreadsheets for data collection was very time consuming and not a good use of our staff time or resources. Coalition Manager has given our member programs the ability to securely input the required information directly to us. This feature alone saves our staff significant time, and allows us to focus on providing technical assistance and collaboration on special projects that greatly benefit our members.
Coalition Manager also allows us to create training events, track registrations, and keep a historical record of staff attendance for all of our 32 programs. In addition, the platform allows us to internally measure the activities of our team members, which helps us provide a more accurate account of our efforts around the state to both our board and funders. It should also be noted that our experience with Element 74 and their staff has been wonderful and we appreciate their assistance whenever we have any questions or customization needs.
Overall, we are very happy using Coalition Manager as our data collection and reporting software and would recommend it to any state domestic or sexual violence coalition.”Terri Eden Program Coordinator ACADV
“I recently had the privilege of working with Element 74 on two projects. Both projects turned out better than expected. They were great to work with , very professional and always available for questions and never made me feel like a bother. I would highly recommend using Element 74 for your project.”Julie Walker Pharmacy Consultant
