    I've worked with Table XI for the last 9 years on a University-wide system to manage transactions at over 70 centralized service facilities. It has been an outstanding experience. The system performs well and is rock solid. We've extended the feature set far beyond our initial scope and they've handled our needs without pause. My favorite part is the responsiveness. I've never been left waiting for a reply, and I have never seen an issue go unresolved in a short span of time. Great partners.

    Table XI did a really good job kicking off the project by helping us with requirements gathering and project planning. They had some great exercises to facilitate this process and I particularly enjoyed how they teased out how flexible we were in terms of scope, budget, quality, and timeline. Doing so helped us ensure our expectations were all aligned prior to starting work. Table XI also maintains a great engineering culture, which was exhibited by their engineers.

    "Tech Done Right" sums it up well! With TXI we not only get quality code but also a strategic partner to help us prioritize stories for development. Their discipline has helped us avoid implementing features that we later clearly saw weren't really needed. The bill can add up quickly, i.e. Table XI is not the cheapest kid on the block... but we know it's been spent wisely. TXI's engineers have a natural empathy for the end user, and that's really important for us. Highly recommend them!

    Table XI designed and created our mobile app. We are a retail company focused on baby products and needed to help people register for their baby showers. There were some complicated aspects to this that other developers had not seemed to understand. Table XI not only understood the business case, they also added their own creative ideas that made the app much better. They set expectations, communicated clearly, and delivered on everything we were expecting exactly when they promised they would.

    Table XI helped us build an accessible mobile app providing users with personalized information on their voting rights and logistics for the 2018 midterms. They assembled an incredible team of passionate designers and developers and their product strategists kept us on target and on budget.

    TXI helped us get two ecommerce product lines launched and in market, as well as supplemented our design team for a mobile app relaunch. The TXI team not only did great work on each of the projects, but they also were really great to work with along the way. They were very responsive and the project teams operated as if they were a part of our company. They brought thought leadership to our projects, and helped think through better, more ideal approach to our architecture.

    Table XI transitioned us from a printed publication to a custom online database over 5 years ago. They continue to innovate with us through “project inceptions,” a great approach to brainstorming ideas, and optimize our database, so that we provide content that is dynamic and meaningful to our customers. Table XI is a "think outside the box" organization of creative people. The team there is always thoughtful in their recommendations and will properly vet all ideas before implementation.
