“Clients should be wowed when they receive design mockups, but a lot of that is lost in mundane collaboration processes,” CAGE co-founder Sandip Patel said. “Emails get messy. Feedback is out of context. Meetings run long. These things put strain on client relationships.
“CAGE eliminates the need for email threads, marathon client meetings and folders full of mockups and revisions. It’s as simple as uploading your work and sharing a unique URL. From there, you can add notes and comments directly onto the work so that the conversation stays focused on project.”
Stefan Hartwig, Partner at Electric Pulp said: “We needed a simple way of presenting mockups and tracking feedback in relation to the interface. Cage scratches that itch and more.”

- Centralized location to present and receive client feedback
- Team functionality
