The following are very important in making a final decision and in the selection of a web development firm for this project:
•Technical Proficiency –Ability to understand all the components involved and make recommendations.

Being kept in the loop as the project moves through phases and understanding what will happen-when –so that we can coordinate with our larger marketing pieces will be important.

The final proposal should address the above, and specifically have several references we can call or email.
