I’ve known Jon professionally for over a decade and knew that when it came time for our company to finally update its web presence, Wood Street would be tops on my list. When I first showed up at the design studio with handwritten notes and sketches, I’m sure the team was rolling their eyes and wondering what they got themselves into! However, in a very professional way, we steadily progressed from concept to requirements to a “wireframe” prototype of the site. Chaos was quickly replaced with order and the project moved along at a good clip from that point forward. It was particularly impressive how Jamie designed a single set of web pages that could interact with the users of a PC, tablet or smart phone device. Also, Derek’s technical skills were particularly welcome as he was able to design custom forms and reports that were generated in real time using information from our legacy database. In the end, the site met all of our business requirements and now serves as the marketing centerpiece of our company. Our investment in the website – and choice of Wood Street as our vendor – were two of the best decisions we made last year.

When I told a colleague about a website development project I was going to be leading, he recommended I check-out Wood Street, Inc located in Frederick, Maryland. So, I sent them an RFP, along with three other firms. The proposal package Wood Street put together was impressive, comprehensive, and very competitive. My team and I chose them, and we have never looked back. Working with Jamie and Jason has been a great experience; actually a true partnership. They always listened to understand what we were hoping to create, followed-up with questions to clarify, and provided great ideas both in terms of design and functionality. We are incredibly proud of the final product and our clients are finding great value when using it.

I can not thank Wood Street enough. From the beginning of our project to the end, this group was the most professional, patient and creative group we worked with! I would not recommend anyone else if you need a start up or refresh design to a web site this is where you need to be hands down. A giant thank from all of us to all you at Wood Street, Inc.

From the start of our rebranding initiative, Wood Street made it hard to NOT want to work with them. When we published our RFP, we’d received several referrals to competing firms and, in full transparency, we included Wood Street more because they were a reputable local firm. Wood Street’s response was well organized and easy to follow. It was pointed and thoughtful. It set the bar very high and made it easy to tell people with whom I have close business relationships that I was ignoring their referral without hesitation. Their work actually crafting and building our refreshed brand was as solid as their proposal. We were not an easy client, but Wood Street did a remarkable job balancing my demands for a well-managed project with solid timelines against my Leadership Team’s desire to continually tinker with deliverables. Wood Street delivered a polished and fresh design for our website and collateral that gave us a more professional look while still maintaining strong alignment with our core values (which, as you might imagine, is always a critical success factor for a company named Integrity). Even now that we’re on the happy side of going live, I’d have to say that Wood Street’s continued support has been even more impressive than their sales and delivery efforts; not only are the folks at Wood Street always readily available to discuss branding questions and make any adjustments we request to our marketing elements, but the conversation is always focused on Integrity’s objectives rather than on fees for services. Wood Street is a highly creative and capable shop, and a true partner in Integrity’s continued success.

Wood Street helped us automate the order entry process for our line of niche air conditioning products which include some complex options and dependencies. The web based system they wrote specifically for us is very user friendly. Our internal processes are more streamlined and our sales channel of independent representatives can select and enter orders with confidence that the order is technically correct and easy to track. Wood Street took the time to learn about our products and how they are sold in order to make the system not only functional today but flexible enough to build with our business.
Stulz Air Technology Systems, Frederick, MD
During more than 18 years as an Internet developer, site manager, and industry exec, I’ve worked for and with some of the best known names in the business. Wood Street is a rare group of web developers, offering a small company’s focus on its customers with best-of-breed skills in design and programming. When I need a strong, trustworthy partner to take on a complex web project, whether independently or as part of our team, Wood Street is always my first choice.

I have had the opportunity to work with Wood Street on two major web design projects including a WordPress Blog over the last 5 years, and have found Jon and the other members of the team to be extremely creative and knowledgeable in the design and implementation of both projects. After only two weeks, we were seeing very good results in our business. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Wood Street and highly recommend them.

To say that I’m picky when it comes to working with technology companies would be a serious understatement. I make a living picking apart technology companies’ ability to deliver what the customer wants, when they want it at a price they’re willing to pay. In other words, I help technology companies get their act together. Naturally, you wouldn’t expect me to be a client of a technology company that ought to first be a client before they can be trusted to deliver. That’s why I work with Wood Street. Not only do they know how to deliver, but it’s not by accident that they do so. It’s also no accident that they create gorgeous stuff at the same level of professionalism as everything else they do. They know what it takes to deliver and do it consistently. And, because of this, it’s always a pleasure doing business with them.

A few years ago we decided to change our logo, collateral, web site, etc. We worked with the Wood Street team to develop an updated look and feel to all of our marketing materials, business cards, trade show banners and web site. Wood Street was great to work with; they listened to our ideas and brought some of their own to the table. They challenged me to think of some new ideas that I had not considered before and were very patient with me when it came to providing content for our web site. I have had numerous complements on the quality or our marketing materials, and I am always glad to give the credit and referral to Wood Street, Inc. Thank you Jamie, Jon and team for your hard work and excellent service.

I would like to take some time to give a huge thank you to you and your team for your great work on the website redesign. Everyone we’ve talked to loves the new look, and we greatly appreciate the upgrade to WordPress from our old CMS. Everyone here at PBM wants to express our sincere thanks!

I want to let you know what a pleasure it was to work with you and Wood Street, Inc. in the designing and building or our new website. From the beginning to end, Wood Street was professional, creative and responsive to all of our requests. We couldn’t be happier with the design and functionality of the website. It has been a huge hit with both customers and employees. The product search feature is the most invaluable feature as it greatly assists our customers as well as our own sales team in researching the many products Conestoga Tile carries. Most importantly, the website does what it was meant to do which is generating revenue. Due to the increased SEO, the site has risen in its search engine ranking which has translated to us receiving calls we generally would not have. And these calls have led to sales that instantly paid for (and then some) the entire website project. Keep up the great work and we look forward to working with Wood Street, Inc. on future projects.

For almost 60 years our company has been manufacturing reliable construction equipment. The trust in the EDCO brand comes from decades of superior face-to-face customer service and training. To grow, we needed to expose more people to our high-quality service. Obviously, an upgraded Internet presence was the best way to reach new audiences. We had lots of online training ideas, but our outdated website prevented us from realizing them. We brought big ideas to Wood St who created an entirely new website based on EDCO’s goals. EDCOINC.com quickly became the face of our company and the foundation of original online training tools. Our Internet presence is now trusted by customers, and is the envy of competitors. Wood Street helped EDCO become better.

The Woodstreet team caters to our deadlines, without the usual hoops to jump through as is the case with most agencies. For these reasons and more, we are very appreciative of our partnership, and will continue to be brand advocates for years to come!
Beerju Patel, Director of Marketing
AUI Fine Foods, Gaithersburg, MD
I’ve personally known Jon and his company Wood Street for more than 13 years, and have recommended that others speak to Wood Street when they were asking me for a good marketing and web design team. When VIKA talked about revamping our age-old website, I first went to Jon. It took the company principals here a while to realize that designing AND managing content on a website was too large a task. However, when we finally decided to go out of the office and seek assistance, Jon and his team provided a streamlined process at a fair price. Having Wood Street understand how to manage the line between what we desired & envisioned, and what we truly needed was welcomed. Jon and his team used a realistic approach to build our new site in quick order, with the features we wanted, and it happened smoothly. In addition, Jon and his team have continued to provide support and a secure management portal on the back end for us to add content safely, and using preset templates for maintaining website branding & consistency. Friendly, sage advice, great designs, and quick work are why we’ve been very happy with Wood Street.

Wood Street is always there for us when we need to develop a new website from the ground up or just tweak the current version. They are great to work with and have insights and ideas we might not otherwise have had that deliver above what our expectations are. Everyone at Wood Street has always been responsive and quick to respond all of our inquires and requests. The work is done efficiently with results that are directly in line with our brand and concepts. I can’t recommend working with Wood Street enough. Especially if you want a web presence that reflects who your company is and what is special about it.

As we prepared to open our dream business for both dogs and their people, we found Wood Street to be of the same philosophy in providing superior customer service. It was highly important to us to make our website educational and interactive, as well as translate who we are. The entire staff at Wood Street was creative, fun and easy to work with, and highly understanding of our needs to achieve this goal. They were also very patient with educating us to the possibilities of our website, and working with our busy schedules. They continue to provide us with insights and excellent ongoing customer care for updates, logo needs, print ads, etc… Frederick is fortunate to have this local talent, as are we.

Not only has Wood Street been a great developer, but they have been a dream partner. Remaining on the forefront of technology and integration is extremely important to our company philosophy and goals. Wood Street has enabled our success in the digital landscape by providing top notch programming and sound development advice. We seem to send over an endless supply of new projects and all are met with professional and timely service. I believe that a key contributor to our success is positively tied to how much our site has evolved. None of that would have been possible without Wood Street’s guidance, expertise, and execution.

The development, the interface design, and the format that we were looking for; were all professional handled and produced.
