How is developing on BC different from your previous development process?

We previously worked with a number of Open Source systems. In the end we had to concede that Open Source is only free if your time has no value.

We chose BC because there is no server setup required and no technical issues. You just click on a button to start the design phase, leaving you free to concentrate on the creative side.

All modules are built-in, so we didn't have to gather components from all over the place and worry about whether they were compatible with the website we had created.

What are the strengths of BC compared to other systems?

The fundamental strength of BC is that you don't just get a system, you get a business strategy, which opens up a world of opportunities for developing your business.

We have created over 50 BC sites, but BC gives you the opportunity to develop your customer's business. As a result, we have sold websites to our customers two or three times, and helped them to think in new ways about how to use their websites. This has given our customers more business and hence us as well.

On Being a BC Partner

What are your favorite aspects of the Partner Program, and why?

One of our favourite aspects of the Adobe Partner Program is that you become an integrated part of BC. Being always kept up to date with the latest technologies and development trends by BC gives you a huge advantage as an agency.

Looking back, how do you feel about your decision to become a BC Partner?

Becoming a BC partner was one of the best business decisions the agency has ever made. We used to make websites, now we have the tool to create strategic online businesses. Your sales focus shifts from selling creative graphical solutions to thinking about completely new business areas in cooperation with your customer. You also become part of a network with many other strong BC partners, whom you can discuss ideas with and draw inspiration from.

How has BC helped you grow your design business?

BC has helped us not only to make our creative websites more easily and faster, but also to establish a uniform work flow which everyone in the company understands.

This has meant that everyone can be involved in developing our sites, and everyone at the agency can support and service our customers at a much higher level than in the past.
