Project Stories: HealthInSite

Atomic Object engages with customers of all types and sizes. Each project is a little or a lot different from projects we’ve completed in the past.

Different personalities. Each customer needs to be engaged in a unique way and while we work to solve technical challenges, design great user interfaces, and uphold standards of quality we also adapt our engagement style and responsibilities to the specific needs of each customer.
