4us

After going through 3 web developers in 4 years, the Tacoma based non-profit needed a solution with some staying power. 4US wanted to lay a foundation in their web-based application that would allow them to grow into a national organization over the next five years.  We built the application from scratch using Ruby on Rails, possibly the best web framework out there.  We were able to build incremental features, each step of the way getting feedback from the client.  On a complex project like this one, it is imperative that the client is able to try out the application as early on in the process as possible.  Ruby on Rails gives us the ability to do this because we can setup modules quickly, getting immediate feedback as users try things out.
