How do you schedule the development phases of the websites to promise the timeline to your clients?
Our technology is quite simple and clear. When we get a request from our clients, it is usually sent for estimation.

We use an hourly pricing model. The average price of our work is $30 per hour.
If we have an exact task or mockup on what to do, we can estimate the project immediately and send the price/amount of hours, and the deadline to a client.
What according to you are the best practices to attain client satisfaction?
Understanding the client's needs and aims from the very beginning - that's the best practice.
How do you update your business system to be in pace with the technological advancements?
Drupal is going with the times. There are periodically Drupal system updates, so Drupal websites are always high-secure and up-to-date (provided if you update them timely).
What do you think will be the future of Drupal technology?
Since Drupal is currently one of the most popular CMSs in the market, it will be widely used and demanded due to it’s an open-source system, developer-friendly, and supports different types of content. Drupal is gaining focus, and, as for me, it is becoming more widespread among commercial websites. Nevertheless, Drupal is about “do one thing and do it well”.
