There’s a lot cooking in the Tenon.io kitchen these days!

New Feature in Winter 2018: Projects API and Spider

Ashley has been using Tenon to provide quick feedback on 150 or so home pages for microsites owned by one of The Paciello Group’s Clients. In the process, she’s provided us with valuable feedback on bugs or inconsistencies in […]
