Understanding Needs

The first step in any successful relationship is understanding your needs. They could be to save time, or money, or resources. They could be to give one’s team members better answers far faster than they could with existing options. Nothing starts without clear goals.


There are “good” and “bad” ways to customize a system. We feel that the “good” way is to improve our product line with extensions that all clients can benefit from should they choose, rather than creating one-off, hard-to-support custom systems.


Castine delivers solutions that work. They collect the proper data from data feeds or users, process them correctly, and generate value-added answers to you and your team. This is the cornerstone of our 100% acceptance guarantee.


Relationships are built on long term support. Castine doesn’t deliver software to you and then walk away; we are there from the very first meeting through implementation and right on into your day-to-day support needs. Our support covers upgrades, warranty, and ongoing usage help.
