What was the scope of their involvement?
We started with a couple of brainstorming sessions where we discussed my organizational goals for the updates to the website. Cascade Web Development gave me a lot of great feedback in terms of industry standards, options, and available approaches. From there, we created a timeline, scope of work that matched my budget.
The site itself was built on Cascade’s own proprietary platform. We had a Drupal site originally, but they built this site using their backend from the ground up, with my design specifications and site map. I now manage the site content.
The biggest change in the current development is making the website mobile responsive. Cascade added a capacity for video, the ability to upload CSV files, and easier navigation functions in the training section.
What is the team dynamic?
I started off working with their project manager and lead developer. Throughout the process, the project manager is my point of contact with us sharing a project management platform where we can exchange ideas, updates, and bug fixes.
How did you come to work with Cascade Web Development?
I met Ben McKinley at a function and we chatted. Afterward, I spoke with some past clients and other businesses that highly recommended Cascade. In the end, I felt comfortable with the team at Cascade and their interest in our non-profit mission.
How much have you invested with them?
To date, it's somewhere in the neighborhood of $50,000 for the two iterations.
What is the status of this engagement?
We started working together around September or October of 2013 and the relationship is ongoing.
