My Web Programmer exceeded expectations by delivering a website that features more automated processes for staff and a more user-friendly frontend. The team is communicative and provides thorough updates. My Web Programmer has a wealth of valuable experience.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I am the owner of an online video game community that allows users to rate or report players they have interacted with while gaming.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire My Web Programmer?

After several failed projects with other vendors, I hired My Web Programmer to develop my website.

What were your goals for this project?

We hoped to introduce a platform that would make player information more readily available so that online gaming can be safer.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We went through many outlets trying to find the best company to create what we envisioned. Most other vendors were either inexperienced or too expensive. My Web Programmer, however, had the necessary qualifications and was able to stay within our budget.  

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They designed and developed our website to integrate with one of the most popular video game platform APIs, which allows users to search for other players and display online profiles. My Web Programmer also created a backend panel so that our staff could input data and monitor our users more effectively.

What was the team composition?

We interacted only with a project manager.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

Before this project, everything had to be entered manually, and we lacked a user-friendly experience. As we have made progress, our staff can work faster thanks to new automation methods, and the frontend is less cumbersome for our users. My Web Programmer exceeded our expectations with this website.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

My Web Programmer utilizes a structured approach to project management. We communicated well through email. Their team was always available to answer questions or provide progress updates.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated their dedication to providing us with a quality website.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, I consider this to be a successful engagement.

The client submitted this review online.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

Galilee Life is a multi-vendor fashion sales website, and I'm the founder. 

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

For what projects/services did your company hire My Web Programmer?

I was looking for a tech-savvy partner to help build the Galilee Life website from scratch, willing to go the extra mile to help me achieve my goals. 

What were your goals for this project?

My main goal was to have a website that was completely prepared to go live with no technical impediments. I wanted to show Galilee Life to the world.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

Another company referred us to them. We considered four other companies, but chose My Web Programmer because they had our best interests at heart. They weren't just trying to make more money; they were willing to build a relationship.

Describe the project in detail.

My Web Programmer started by designing a mockup for the homepage and inner pages of the website. Then, they developed the website from scratch. It's a mobile-responsive paltform with multiple functions. Users can register an showcase their products, and shoppers can buy new, used, or handmade items. The My Web Programmer team also built a forum feature using a WordPress CMS that allows our staff to manage users and add, update, and delete content. 

What was the team composition?

My role is simply to observe and make small changes. My programmer does all the work, and we communicate almost daily. The full team includes several members, but its size has changed over time. 

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any outcomes from the project that demonstrate progress or success?

We only launched a few months ago, but our vendors are happy with the results. It's an easy-to-use platform. We couldn't have asked for anything better.

How effective was the workflow between your team and theirs?

Their effective workflow and communication are amazing. If we encounter a question we can't answer, we go directly to their team for help. It's truly a wonderful relationship

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I'm impressed by their ability to complete tasks in such a timely manner. Their incredible communication distinguishes them from other providers. They care about the work and truly bring my vision to life.

Are there any areas for improvement?

I can't think of anything because they're amazing. They definitely haven't fallen short of my expectations. I still use their services and seek their knowledge in any areas I don't understand.

BACKGROUND

Please describe your company and your position there.

I’m the website manager for an international group of retired flight attendants. We have chapters across the country.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

We engaged My Web Programmer to designed a complicated WordPress site, complete with pictures, video, and a directory for 1,200 people.

What were your goals for this project?

The site had to be reliable and functional, and the directory needed to be set up as a form page for each individual. We also wanted to have active and inactive switches.

SOLUTION

How did you select this vendor?

We found them online and discussed our project with them along with a couple of other web designers. Ultimately, we chose My Web Programmer because they had a better idea of what we needed and how to accomplish the task to stay within budget.

Describe the project and the services they provided in detail.

They created an interactive WordPress site with a directory that supported 1,200 people and 40 individual chapters. Key functions included the capacity to upload hundreds of photos, set up forms for pages, and download information at our discretion. The site also featured a sign-in portal and PayPal integration.

What was the team composition?

There were approximately 10 people on the team to set the project up.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Can you share any information that demonstrates the impact that this project has had on your business?

The site functions well, and we’ve only seen positive results.

How was project management arranged and how effective was it?

The project manager was very impressive. He helped to make sure that every step of the website was done to our specification. If we had to make changes, they did them right away.

What did you find most impressive about this company?

I appreciated that we had direct access to our project manager anytime we need support. If he couldn’t answer our question, he would send it to the team.

Are there any areas for improvement?

No, none that I can think of.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m the CEO of inquireaboutme, Inc., a social media platform that allows people and organizations to highlight their achievements through video references.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

We needed a partner willing to do computer programming for a new startup. We needed help with web and mobile app development.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

I provided My Web Programmer with blueprints on how the social media should operate, including user accounts and how everything should be interconnected. They used Laravel to build the platform and made it functional according to my specs. It includes email notifications, live video recording, and a complex infrastructure that’s easy for users to interact with. They work with our third-party partners, including RunAsCloud and AWS. We’re currently in beta testing and plan to go live within the next few months.

What is the team composition?

I mainly interact with the project manager, but there are at least three developers working on our project.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

I did research and looked into numerous companies. I’m personally financing the whole operation, so I needed a financially feasible option. I found My Web Programmer and liked their site, so I read all the reviews I could find. There wasn’t any negative feedback, and they have done phenomenal projects with various companies, so we hired them.

How much have you invested with them?

I’ve spent about $11,000 so far. Computer programming is normally quite expensive, but they break down the payments to make it possible.

What is the status of this engagement?

We’ve been working together since February 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The platform functions as it should and is relatively flawless. I couldn’t be happier with their work. User feedback has been overwhelmingly positive; we haven’t received any negative comments.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

We talk almost every day, tracking progress and updating me on any changes. They’re extremely professional and require minimal oversight. We use Trello and email to communicate. They follow directions and make sure the product functions correctly. They seamlessly work with our other partners, doing honest and good work.

What did you find most impressive about them?

Working with them is effective and comfortable; I completely trust their team. We have a great relationship, and we plan on working together long after our product has launched. Their customer service is outstanding, and they want me to be successful. If it wasn’t for them, I wouldn’t have been able to financially support this project.

Are there any areas they could improve?

No, I have nothing negative to say about them. They’re professional, cordial, and foster a friendly relationship.

Do you have any advice for future clients of theirs?

If you have a complex website infrastructure platform, use My Web Programmer; they’ll be the best value. I don’t know of any other companies in the US that are as good as them.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I have a mailbox franchise.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

With e-commerce and how business is being done in the region, I saw great potential to do a web platform, but I didn’t have the expertise.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

Previously, we did everything manually. I wanted the ability to be a super admin so that I could assign operators to work on the system and for them to sell products to customers. Mohsin (Product Manager, My Web Programmer) gave us a virtual online system that we can operate from anywhere. Mohsin helped me create the backend of the system.

I will be working with him in the future on developing the website as well as developing the system a little more and then we will take it to market. Currently, it is all web-based, but we have discussed working together to move it to an application once the business starts to pick up within the region.

What is the team composition?

Mohsin was my primary contact. He has a team behind him as well.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

The budget was a consideration and he was not the first firm that I spoke to. I needed someone who could grasp what I was trying to say without me saying too much. I needed someone who could give me feedback. I gave a few people the same brief, and Mohsin clarified what I needed; it was almost like he was in my head. He immediately grasped exactly what I needed, and I didn’t have to explain too much. I clicked with him from the beginning. He was extremely polite and responsive and that made the decision to work with him easy.

How much have you invested in them?

We spent around $7,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We worked together on this project from February–August 2018.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The features are spot-on with what we discussed including his input, which was extremely helpful. He delivered more than what I expected. I see a huge potential for the system in the future.

Mohsin spoke about features, and he took things a few steps further. That is one of the reasons I enjoyed working with him. Mohsin put detail and thought into it, which was cool. We haven’t had any issues, and feedback has been great.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

I missed a few things initially, but Mohsin clarified them with me and advised me on some of the features in the system that I didn’t see, which was wonderful. It was exceptionally fast. Because of the time zone difference, I expected to wait a week to have meetings and discuss things. With Mohsin and his team, I received all the feedback within the same week, and most of the time it was a surprise. Mohsin was exceedingly efficient. Our main form of communication was email.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I was most impressed with their professionalism and work ethic. For me personally, I appreciated the human factor; they were willing to put themselves in our shoes. I may be just a client halfway across the world, but it felt like they were sitting next to me. They were willing to take a risk. I’m sure it takes a lot of hours to create something like this. They had the human element to sit with me and get the work done as if it was their own project and I loved that.

Are there any areas they could improve?

They are too nice. It isn’t a bad thing. They are young people, and they need to say no more.

They are spot-on and I can’t wait to go back to them.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Trust them. Be 100% transparent with whomever you work with.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I’m a supervisor with a real estate company.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

We needed to build a software program and lacked the in-house knowledge. We’d worked with a number of firms and freelancers previously, but with unsatisfactory results.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They provided a demo that proved they were capable of accomplishing our goals. From here, they created our data-mining program that collects and stores website data, then sends us a daily report via email.

What is the team composition?

I coordinated with a primary point of contact and he communicated my needs to his team.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

We found My Web Programmer online and reached out to them and a few other companies based on their positive reviews. Because we’re not well-versed in coding, we were a little hesitant about a potential language barrier in working with a company based in Pakistan, but we haven’t encountered any issues.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in October 2017 and our relationship is ongoing. The program is complete, but we recently reached out to them to repair a minor glitch.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

They’ve exceeded our expectations and have had a very positive impact on our company.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

We haven’t had any issues. They hit every deadline and communicated regularly. We spoke through email, though they offered to use telephone and Skype if we preferred, and they always responded in a timely manner.

What did you find most impressive about them?

We were a difficult client because of our lack of coding knowledge. We couldn’t always articulate our needs. Still, they were patient and able to translate our vague instructions into results.

Are there any areas they could improve?

Everything went as expected or better, so we have no complaints.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

It helps to list your requests step by step, to the best of your ability. Failing to accurately describe your needs could result in delays and cost overruns.

Feedback has been generally positive to the software thus far. Communication occurred mostly through email, and was often through a single point of contact making the job really simple. The team is leaps and bounds ahead of other developers in terms of their responsiveness and flexibility.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I created a software for tax preparation offices, it is a check-in system designed to replace the sign-in sheets that most offices use.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer.

I had drawn up the plans for the software I wanted to create, but had no programming experience. I reached out to multiple development companies to find one to build it.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The software they created replaces the sign-in sheet for tax offices. It’s essentially a questionnaire, and is based on Amazon Web Services. It’s designed specifically to work on tablets. It starts with the client completing the questionnaire.

It also works well on mobile, which is important without having to create a downloadable app or anything of that sort. It remains as a link that can be set to a home page on a kiosk in a lobby or emailed to a client to do on their phone or home computer. There's a lot of flexibility there.

They also designed a signature portion that takes place through a touch screen or the dragging of a mouse, to create paperless documentation going. Another feature, is when tax preparers select their client to and view their information, there is another link that can be displayed continuously in Alibi. When the tax preparer selects that client, it forms a call number system and calls them back.

What is the team dynamic?

I had a single point of contact, and that made things very easy for me. It was just one email. He would distribute tasks to the appropriate people.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

I found them through a Google search. It was that simple. Their responsiveness was the primary factor in hiring them. I was surprised at how lax the other companies were at getting back to me, whereas these guys were the opposite. It was quick. They answered with minutes, and we had several phone calls to talk on a more personal level.

How much have you invested with them?

About $16,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We started working together in June 2017, and the engagement finished last month in October.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

Feedback has been tremendously positive from people who’ve seen the software. It’s been really great. Overall, the response so far has been incredible.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

We communicated mostly through email because I had written up most of the product already, so it was basically Q&A, but they were very good at responding to those. Having one point of contact and one email made things very simple, not having to go through multiple persons. I would give them an “A” overall, instead of an “A+.” There was a little bit of delay towards the end of the project. But overall, it was very satisfactory.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I would again have to say, their responsiveness. It was leaps and bounds ahead of the other developers as far as time. They were also very flexible. I had written up some wireframes and we changed a couple of things along the way and they adapted well.

Are there any areas they could improve?

We spent quite a large amount of time on the wireframe. However, I don’t know if I would say we need to change that aspect; that may be why things moved faster later on.

Do you have any advice for potential customers?

Have the program at least written up, even if it's just in PowerPoint or somewhere you can design the layout of the page. Once I provided them this, we got a huge head start. There were no weeks or months of back and forth. They were really able to hit the ground running.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am an executive of a social media platform that bridges the gap between professional media and personal social media like Facebook.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

We had engaged another development company for our social media site, but they were not able to handle all its issues and features. We needed a new partner who could finish all the features, perform testing, and figure out bugs, so we approached My Web Programmer.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

My Web Programmer started from the previous developer’s work. There were a number of incomplete and unimplemented features. The site was buggy and nonfunctional—and an overall mess.

The features they had to implement related to the places where people could add assets, whether whose were documents, videos, or pictures. There were many other components, such as making connections between companies.

The site was originally developed in PHP, and they continued working within this framework.

What is the team dynamic?

I interfaced directly with the project manager, who was my single point of contact. If I had any issues, I could ask for his advice.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

I believe I saw one of their ads on a developer portal when I was looking for partners.

How much have you invested with them?

The cost of their work was $6,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

I started working with My Web Programmer in February or March 2017. The project was completed in September 2017, but we might continue to work with them for maintenance and new features on an ongoing basis.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

My Web Programmer's work gave me a lot more confidence in the website. Before engaging them, I had no confidence in the workings of the site or its features. There were dozens and dozens of issues which hadn’t been implemented or were nonfunctional.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

The project manager was extremely responsive and patient, and the team was thorough in terms of development and testing. Response time was within 24-48 hours when I had any bugs or issues. I was also kept on track and reminded of email replies I needed to give.

What did you find most impressive about them?

My previous developer did not know how to test, and this is an issue I’ve seen frequently—people know how to develop a product, but they don’t know how to test it and find issues. My Web Programmer was quite thorough in this regard. Their professionalism and responsiveness are the most important qualities of the team.

Are there any areas they could improve?

I am not sure what they could have done better. I’m satisfied with the work.

My Web Programmer has excellent communication skills and their team is very professional. They provided one point of contact who was very responsive, helpful, and friendly. Additionally, they provided a fair quote and value for the money.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am a dietician and I own a nutrition consulting practice. I have been in practice for about 18 years.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

I wanted a fresh website and I wanted something that would garner more traffic because I'm trying to develop the digital and virtual aspect of my business now.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

They asked me a lot of questions about exactly what I was interested in and they took a lot of time to understand my goals. My expectations were to relay that information and then to have them put together a mock-up that reflected what my vision was, and then to execute it. My expectation was also to make sure the website was structurally and visually up to my standards. The content of the site was my responsibility. SEO was going to be something that they would do at a later date; SEO wasn’t in the scope of the initial platform.

It had been a number of years since I had done a fresh site. I was looking to improve the overall functionality, look, and design of my website. I wanted to be advised on what would make me stand out and what would really garner the interest of potential clients when coming to my website. I wanted a website that was not too busy, but informative enough.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

I went through the different companies on your site, Clutch.co, which was a really great resource, and I would look at their website, and I would go by how they presented themselves on their website. The reviews were helpful too, but I was more interested in what was my impression of their website was. Was the website too busy? Was it too sales-oriented? That is one of the reasons why I picked My Web Programmer.

One of the real testaments to My Web Programmer is the owner; he's extremely attentive, very communicative, and very professional. He was great to work with. He is the main reason that I chose them because he was more professional than anyone else I had spoken to. And I can't remember all the other people I had emailed, but he wasn't pushy and he was understanding and patient.

How much have you invested with them?

Less than $10,000.

What is the status of this engagement?

We began working together in March 2017. We have almost finished everything.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

What evidence can you share that demonstrates the impact of the engagement?

The site isn’t live yet, so I don’t have metrics. We haven’t made it live because I’m not ready yet; I want to add more to the site.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

I give them top ratings on their communication skills and professionalism. Meeting deadlines have all been fine. For me, the only thing that would have been more helpful is having milestones explicitly broken down. There was some miscommunication because there was a lack of explanation on the front end on the project.

I had one point of contact, and he was very responsive. Some people can drag their heels about getting back to you, but he was always very responsive.

What did you find most impressive about them?

I liked having comfort in the person that I was working with. I've never spoken to him directly and our communication was all online via email. I had other people that I had spoken to and I just wasn't impressed with them. I ended up taking a gamble and working with someone that I've never even talked to. He was extremely kind, extremely helpful, communicative, and responsive.

Feedback summary: 

My Web Programmer shares updates consistently and hasn't charged extra for changes or added features. They need to improve in asking questions and giving better time estimates. As a client, being specific at the beginning with requirements and providing direction will ensure success with them.

A Clutch analyst personally interviewed this client over the phone. Below is an edited transcript.

BACKGROUND

Introduce your business and what you do there.

I am the founder of a small business venture that has created a program to help farmers do better financial planning. The program mainly does crop accounting right now. It has a full-blown chart of accounts, a balance sheet, an income statement — your typical financial info — and then it does some farm specific things as well.

OPPORTUNITY / CHALLENGE

What challenge were you trying to address with My Web Programmer?

I hired them to do programming; I basically needed to convert an Excel farm accounting program into a web application.

I wanted a farmer to come into the program, be able to set up their own customized accounting records, and then keep those records from year-to-year with the ability to look back as well as project future cash flows based on their business or what they do with the farm.

I think of it as a one-stop shop for everything. When farmers go and try to get an operating loan for the next year's crops, they would be able to take their balance sheet to show the company's net worth. In conjunction with that, they would have an income statement that would be used for their tax preparation. Then, there is a crop year financial statement so that they can see, in previous years, the crop that is profitable based on expenses for that crop year versus the income generated.

There's also field-level analysis component that determines which crop yielded the best and which one performed the best from a financial perspective.

SOLUTION

What was the scope of their involvement?

The majority of the work they’ve been doing is development — converting what I had in Excel over to a web app. They’ve also proposed and added a couple of new features here and there. The most recent one was an account management feature where you can customize your chart of accounts. You can add new categories for capital assets; if farmers want to group all of their tractors together in one account, they can do that now. The same with crops: if farmers decide they want to grow a new crop that they haven't done before, they have the ability now to add it.

We had originally priced out doing a mobile app, but that was outside of my budget at the time we started and still probably is, so we haven't moved forward with that yet. Potentially, if I have the funds for it, we could go mobile it in the future.

The web app is really what I'm planning on marketing. I'm trying to connect with a farm lending service to see if they would be interested in selling my product. I haven’t put a lot of branding into it yet; I’m with the hopes that I sell the functionality of the product.

How did you come to work with My Web Programmer?

I had done Google searches and then reached out to them from a profile website. It looked like they had a substantial number of clients and reviews, and most of it was positive, so we went through an introduction of what they do.

They shared some examples of different apps they had built for other customers, including an invoicing one. It looked like the work was pretty sharp and I was pleased with it; their rates were affordable as well. Ultimately, I decided to go with them.

How much have you invested with My Web Programmer?

So far, I’ve paid them a little bit over $8,000 to do the conversion. They had proposed a higher price but given my financial circumstances, they came down a little bit. I'm hoping not to have to spend too much more for the second phase of development, but there are a couple of imperative features that I need to put in. When it's all said and done, it should be around $14,000 or less.

What is the status of this engagement?

I've been working with My Web Programmer for 16 months on the development. We were in discussions at the end of 2015, but they didn't start programming anything until February 2016.

Right now, my dad's farm operation is the only customer that I have, and he's using the Excel version of the program since the web app isn't quite ready to go yet. He’s been using it for 3 years.

RESULTS & FEEDBACK

Could you share any evidence that would demonstrate the productivity, quality of work, or the impact of the engagement?

The framework is definitely there. There's still a little bit of fine tuning and functionality that needs to be built, but they’ve been very good to work with in terms of answering questions and making little tweaks here and there based on my input after I review things. From my standpoint, I know I probably haven't been the best at testing since I've never had live data in there. However, I am overall satisfied with them.

How did My Web Programmer perform from a project management standpoint?

They share updates regularly, whether it's a screenshot or migrating the live data to the website so that I can go in and play with it.

What did you find most impressive about My Web Programmer?

I don’t think there's anything that’s overwhelmingly special or unique.

Are there any areas My Web Programmer could improve?

They need to improve on asking more clarifying questions. There are a lot of times I’ll submit a feature in my Excel program, which I share with them, and they’ll develop it based on what they see. If they have questions, they don't really share those with me all the time. Then, they'll develop something and it's not right when it comes to the testing phase, so we have to rewrite everything. This has been a little frustrating as it has prolonged the project.

Another aspect I would appreciate more clarity on would be with the whole testing phase. I will get an email from them telling me that the changes have been updated or fixed, but it doesn't specify what the programming team had done; I have to go into the program, play around, and guess what they did. I have to retest everything that I had sent them that needed adjustment.

What tips or recommendations could you share that might increase the likelihood of success with My Web Programmer?

Be explicit in what you want, either with a live demonstration or have more organization and clarity upfront in the initial request. That's one area I fell short in because they had some issues with the Excel program, specifically, opening it — there are macros, and they needed some outdated information to be installed before they could really use it.

That part caused some issues, and I had to share screenshots of my Excel program via PowerPoint. Then, we lost some of the features based on what they saw on the PowerPoint versus what was in the Excel program because I failed to connect the dots between the two. There were also a few things in the Excel program that I forgot to include in the PowerPoint or call out specifically, so that caused a little bit of tension at some point as well. If they’re given the direction, they do a great job; without that direction, it's not as high quality.

4.5
Overall Score The work is done well and it's affordable. The initial time estimate has been drawn out, but it's a big project and I don't think they realized that. Ultimately, the communication is good and the team seems to have pretty prompt feedback.

    They initially said that the whole application would be done in 6 months; we are at 16 months already and still going. The first phase is complete but the initial time estimate was way off. I think the misinterpreted the scope of the project.

    They haven't really requested more money. We agreed to a set price for the work and they've added a few different features and a couple of dropdown menus or buttons which I didn't have in the Excel program. They haven't really charged more for it.
