"I have only great things to say about We started on another platform and switched mid-project, which can be complicated. I was impressed with’s initial presentation, where several team members did a step-by-step presentation of the platform, helping me to understand it quickly. Throughout the process, the team was right there and made adjustments efficiently. It’s that willingness to work with the client that makes a difference because every one of these projects has quirks. That’s been fantastic. It was a very positive experience right on through. We couldn’t be happier with how our catalogue raisonné turned out."
