Keeping workflows simple for a design agency

logo for render-that

RenderThat is a fast growing design agency that offers creative services for brands - they provide a breadth of design, animation and rendering expertise through a global network of experts. Due to high rates of growth, they were looking for ways to scale their business more effectively. A key goal was to improve workflows from receiving a client brief through to the resourcing and delivery of a project.

CHALLENGES

  • Difficult to track skills and knowledge across more than 100 permanent and contract staff

  • Resource planning managed in Google sheets which were not able to show where their was capacity

  • Unable to see when projects were running overbudget

  • Founders of the company wanted better data to inform key investment and hiring decisions

We are always looking for solutions to make things more efficient. We produce 1 million renderings per month - you need to organise things well, otherwise you can’t handle this volume. In the past we couldn’t find a tool to improve workflows - we were excited to find Precursive which is great for our needs.

— David Wischniewski, CEO
