What kinds of technical challenges do you and your team face?

Customers often ask us for additional functionality in the context of what they’re trying to achieve, but often, we can not only achieve the initial request, but surpass it. We keep usability to a high standard and make the platform viable for the long run. This creates a lot of opportunities to come up with innovative approaches.
