🎉 Client quotes
I just wanted to let you know that so far we have received wonderful feedback from our other sites who recently began using the database application. The users have shared with me how much time it has saved them, how user friendly it is, and overall how much they love it! It really has been great, it makes our job so much easier...We also really appreciate how responsive Shane is whenever we experience an issue or have a question. Another user told to her project director (who shared this at our Regional Project Director meeting today) – that she gives the application a 10/10 and commented how responsive your group is (I agree!).
I just wanted to applaud your work on Dreamly so far. I looked at the codebase today for the first time in a long while, and was delighted to see how much you've improved its foundation even as you've added complex features. I think TFP is lucky this project landed in your hands, and I'm looking forward to seeing where you take it.
I am sad not to be working with you all anymore too; your quality of work is amazing.
