I recently had an interesting interaction with a former client. We haven’t done work together in a while, but we reconnected shortly after he had visited our company’s website, which had recently been redesigned.

They also needed some help and support regarding the system design and functionality.
After many conversations over the course of a few weeks to gather information about the upcoming project, the customer shared the amount they had budgeted to cover the programming portion of the project.
