The BackChecked Difference
BackChecked is a software company and we act like one. Why is this so important? It's all about focus. At BackChecked, we wake up every day thinking about how to make our software better. All this focus on improving the system over the past decade has paid off. In fact, BackChecked just might do more than you need, today. But, do you know what you're going to need tomorrow? We're always thinking about it.
By the way, we do something else that is unusual today. We answer the phone when you call. Most importantly, you don't have to take our word on all this. We have excellent references.
