Clients Are Talking

THANK YOU for your expertise in building us a system that the staff loves to use... Just today I noticed the clever way the system solves a very obscure problem we've had for years... It just made me giddy!

So Much To Say

So Little Time.

As you read this, around the world, tens of thousands of versions of The Great Novel are being written — rapidly and with great dedication. November is National Novel Writing Month. And while the authors compose their 50,000-word masterpieces, they support one another through the web-based social network provided by the sponsoring organization, The Office of Letters and Light. This year is the most verbose ever... the most participants, the most demands on the infrastructure — and everything is going quite smoothly.

This would not have been possible without Beezwax.

–Chris Baty

Executive Director, Office of Letters and Light

At Beezwax, we create efficiency at work. For this client, we needed to redesign their websites with a more robust infrastructure — to support the writing work of the authors. This relied on our skills as programmers. But the other part of the job was to work in collaboration with our client's in-house technical team — rapidly and seamlessly. This relied on our skills as communicators.

The Developers knew what to implement, and when to make suggestions. They worked brilliantly with both technical and non-technical stakeholders, supporting us in thinking creatively and making sites we are thrilled with.

–Dan Duvall

Technical Director, Office of Letters and Light
