Here are some personalized experiences working with Ninth Degree's developer, Michael Cranford.

  • Michael was originally engaged quite a few years back to develop an extranet for our launch team, to manage mission data and documents internal to Sea Launch. Years later, when it became necessary that we deploy a new web site, I contacted Michael to explain our business objectives for the site. A great deal of data and file content needed to be brought over and converted from our old platform and migrated into the new .NET framework. Michael executed the conversion and developed a custom content management system that was tailored to the needs specific to our business, including a turnkey interface for offering the site in Russian that allowed us to progressively add translated copy over time. Michael was available to us throughout the process, and we are thrilled with the final result and the enhancement it has made to our brand.

    - Peter Stier, Vice President of Marketing, Sea Launch -

  • As we have worked to launch two of my company's websites, Michael has guided me through every step of the way with his knowledge, creativeness, and unlimited patience. This was the first time I have been solely responsible for a website redesign, and Michael has made sure that they will be absolutely perfect on launch date. My interaction with Michael has been primarily via email and over the phone and he has always made me confident in his expertise and comfortable expressing any concerns, which is extremely important when working on such a big project. He is very reliable and trustworthy. Michael has gone above and beyond what I feel most web developers would do to really teach me about the software and make sure I am comfortable, for which I will always be grateful. I am impressed with his work, diligence, and overall attitude. I look forward to continuing to work with him.

    - Gretchen Bahadur, Marketing Director, DUX Dental -

  • We worked with Michael on a detailed launch of a new company Website and CMS. We tasked Michael and his team with some very specific and challenging needs. Michael took the challenge head on and delivered exactly what we wanted on time and within budget. He is a pleasure to work with and communicates well. I highly recommend Michael.

    - Mike Smith, Vice President of Preconstruction, Johnstone Moyer -

  • A solid & reliable developer, Michael was hired in 2005 to produce a custom file sharing and project management platform for Westfield's Tenant Coordination Division. This platform has been used over the last nine years to provide robust file exchange, storage, approval, notation, and notification services for tenant projects at mall properties across the United States. Michael has provided enhanced features and ASP.NET version upgrades over the years, most recently adding archival capabilities and file storage in the Microsoft cloud, using the Azure platform. Working with Michael on enhancement projects, I am always impressed with how thorough he is with the complex coding involved and his ability to add valuable suggestions for new features. Westfield has been very reliant on his consistent development expertise and I highly recommend him.
