William was brought on board in June 2011 to develop our website to help cater towards mobile and tablet users. He had continued to provide support in one capacity or another over the years. His commitment to the smooth functionality of our website had gone well outside of what we required of him. Often he would take care of issues free of charge, which is the sort of person you would want to have on your team. We never had to ask him about our e-mail issues because he was always very pro-active. He would catch technical concerns before we even knew about them.
