Whether your internal development team needs a little extra guidance, or a current project with an outside developer needs "rescuing," turn to Adage to finish the job right.
Some common complaints include the following:
- "My developer is not calling me back."
- "The company and team I was working with was great but they went out of business."
- "My developer responds to me but it takes a long time to get anything done ... they seem to have gotten busy with another client."
- "When I request a change, changes are made and other problems appear in the application."
- "When making enhancements, it seems like we take one step forward and two steps back."
- "The developer we were working with left the company and no one else at the company understands that technology/product/tool."
Why is Adage different?
- We always respond to customer requests ... big or small. We have support offerings that provide you and your web project with support options that fit within your budget.
- We are stable, profitable,and growing. We have been delivering web sites and web applications to a wide variety of companies for over 10 years.
- While we cannot solve everything in minutes, every client is important and we will always respond to a customer request.
- We write unit tests from day one of development that negates what we call the "domino effect" of changes in one part of the web application affecting another.
- Again, proper programming and testing procedures allow you to keep moving forward with your project, not backwards.
- We have carefully chosen our technology platform and applications we support. Every Adage developer can step into a project where needed.
How we do business
Adage developers must be able to talk to clients
Every developer at Adage is required to deal directly with clients ensuring the developer is getting first-hand accounts of the business issues involved, the problems the work is looking to solve, and the budgets and timelines for the work.
Adage invests in its developers
Adage has ongoing training and discussion sessions with their development team to improve their understanding of their work, including reviewing new technologies, improving communication skills, sharing best practices among peers and studying errors for future improvement.
A belief in “distributed responsibility”—Adage runs a flat organization
The lack of hierarchy means that each employee is responsible for his or her work, knowledge of customer needs and requirements, and for helping coworkers when the need arises.
Adage does not use outside contractors
Adage’s team of developers work from a single office. No outside contractors are used. Collaboration among the development team is key to Adage’s success through working together, discussing optimal solutions, and, perhaps most importantly, designing only what is needed based on requirements.
