I worked with Tony (President, Digital Strategy Works) and several of their developers.

We started the planning process in December 2016, and the site was done about seven months later.

Everything they were responsible for is done. We haven't launched the site yet because our primary products haven't been completed yet. Digital Strategy Works provided very high-quality and speedy work. 

How did Digital Strategy Works perform from a project management standpoint? 

Deadlines were hit. If there were scenarios where deadlines couldn’t be hit, they set the proper expectations. Digital Strategy Works was able to be flexible and lead my team in the development process.
