We are primarily a software development, web services, and managed
hosting company. As such, project management is certainly something we
are capable of and would be interested in, but as mentioned, that
wasn't something we had discussed. My initial discussion with Jacob
was in regards to the website (management of and/or
replacement/improvement), hosting, infrastructure management, and
DevOps software and management. We were discussing all of that
primarily because of our interest in technology, but in doing so
realized that RedShift might be a good fit, and would likely be able
to improve things significantly. We would definitely be interested in
having a discussion with you to assess requirements and opportunities
in more detail!
