Determining a scope of hours for a large project that will be completed by a team of developers is difficult and leaves too high of a margin of error - and mistakes can be costly!

We learned the importance of staying up to date with technical updates to software that we integrate with so we immediately subscribed to their announcements.
Designing and developing JuntoScope was a great learning experience for our team as we used this as a time for us to perfect our internal processes that make all of our subsequent products seamless. This has had a lasting impact on the quality of apps that we produce for our clients and ultimately has made us a better team.
