    11. 11. Praise“We have never had a technical contractor relationship as smooth and positive as we did with 601am, who delivered our content management system on-time and on-budget. The deadline never wavered a day through months of highly customized development work. They communicated effectively and completely at every stage and were full partners in the long hours and unexpected roadblocks that accompany any big development project. That smoothness came partly because 601am took the time to understand our project up front andensure they knew precisely what they (and we) were getting into. From that point forward, they took full ownership of our project and we felt that we were working alongside them as a team rather than as a client. Were excited to continue working alongside them as our website continues to grow and we add additional functionality.”- Garrett M. Graff, Editor in Chief, Washingtonian Magazine, Inc.
