What Tom has to say about Teal Umbrella:
Have you ever bitten off a little more than you could chew?
Maybe spread yourself out just a little too thin?
Thought you could handle wearing all of the hats required for a specific project?
Well I sure did – and it wasn’t much fun.
I tried to set up an online Membership site on a fairly tight deadline, using a popular new platform; you know the ones – promising everything and insuring you that anyone can use it.
So there I was, with only a few days left before the big launch, and I was up to my eyeballs with problems, feeling stuck and sinking fast.
I scoured through the inter-webs and as fate would have it, I found Teal Umbrella.
Knowing full well that whatever price they gave me, I’d have no choice but to pay. With a deadline looming and no where else to turn, I was on the hook for whatever came my way.
Low and behold, after I told my story to Melody the lead Project Manager at Teal Umbrella, things instantly started to change for the better.
I finally had someone who spoke my language – I had someone who understood my problems.
I found someone who could not only solve these last minute issues,
but do so with care, purpose and complete transparency. (The price was much less than I was expecting !)
They told me upfront what it would cost, and then they fixed it.
Just like that.
In all honesty, fix really isn’t the right word to use – why?
Because they came in, with fresh new ideas and suggestions, and designed a better website that not only works great, but looks great doing it.
Hindsight being 20/20, I should never have tackled a project of that magnitude alone –
but now that I’ve found Teal Umbrella, I’ll never have to again.
What more can I say?
Professional, punctual and inspiring.
