ActiveCollab: Peace of mind from Nightmare to Peace

Andrew Folts, Sherpa Design Co., wrote this customer story.
Hello there. Andrew Folts is a freelance web designer and developer. I also own Sherpa Design Co.
ActiveCollab is my tool for organizing everything, from complex WordPress themes to simple website builders projects to professional development. Many clients have a specific platform or technology in mind when they contact ActiveCollab. However, I have learned that it is always better to start with a clean slate. This allows us to identify the main problem and agree on a solution. Once we have agreed on the main challenge, we will create a project template and make any adjustments if necessary. If I’m in hurry, I’ll use ActiveCollab to take notes. I’ll then ask my client for feedback on the process. After the project is over, I will ask my client if there was anything they would improve on the process.
ActiveCollab was actually introduced to me during a major website project that was spiraling out of control due to the number of revisions required by my client. I was using Word documents, emails and my brain to keep track. ActiveCollab is the true measure of success
I have reduced the number of double-checks and emails searches I normally use to track a particular task group by 75% in my first month. Tweet this. What’s more important to me is the peace-of-mind ActiveCollab offers. Because I can see that they have been completed, I feel less stressed and more confident in telling my clients that certain tasks are “done”. Tweet this Unending Inspiration
It can be intimidating to navigate the internet, and many small businesses are lost in the shuffle. I am constantly inspired by the unique products, stories, and services these businesses offer. I love sharing them through smart code, user-friendly design, and it is so rewarding to be able to divide my time into different skill sets. ActiveCollab allows me to constantly learn new skills and improve my existing ones without feeling overwhelmed.
