Challenges

  • Boost customer loyalty.

  • Keep it up with the industry trends.

Yes, they used to send us estimates and deadlines, regularly reporting how things are going on. We used Basecamp to track project progress. Each end of the sprint they used to send me the builds so I could see the progress and test it on my own.
