Hi Product Hunt 👋! We’re excited to be here and share our adventure. Our mission is to help aspiring entrepreneurs to start a website-based business with no hassle. We’ve started as a site-builder, but realised that could provide much more value by focusing it on developers and helping other people. Some key points where we try to be really different: - Workflow, based on tasks, and each task is broken down to several sprints. 1 sprint = 2 hours of development. - Daily Report, get detailed description to ensure the right direction of the development. - Monte CMS, the development speed is 4x faster. We’ve validated that for the past 2 months already. True story! Either you’re looking for a fixed website, made in up to 2 weeks or an ongoing development support, Monte could be the right fit for you. I hope you find it useful. Don’t hesitate to ask us anything!

@sefinciuc great idea, might be helpful to 1/ showcase some work you've done across different levels of complexity to illustrate cost and deliverables, and 2/ showcase a few of the core team members, let us see where they've been and what they've done

@sefinciuc Awesome product! I think it will help many entrepreneurs to realise their vision with a product. However, I have one question. What if the product is build and I would like to expand my team outside of Monte. Can the Monte workflow be integrated with outside workflows as well? For example, using Slack or so?
Grigore DodonMaker@grigdodon · Co-Founder at Monte
@nicholas_smeele That's great you asked that. Slack is what we are strongly considering at the moment to integrate in Monte. We think that we'll create a smoother workflow, including what we have atm, and as you said, a wider possibility for teams that want to continue their development outside of Monte.

@passingnotes Thanks David! You're right! We're working on it and we'll deliver this information asap. Thanks for valuable feedback! Highly appreciated!
Nicholas Smeele@nicholas_smeele · CEO, Rizzley
@grigdodon Perfect! Look forward to the update then :)

So you are basically a web design agency... Exactly how is this a product? Please explain.
Sergiu FinciucMaker@sefinciuc · Founder of Mavio
@khaliphj There are truly unique advantages like (Monte CMS, Daily Process, Developers as a service) and we don't want to confuse with our messaging. We use Monte CMS - one the most differentiating factors. A product that is fast for developers and easy for clients. More here: https://onmonte.com/product Do you think we should focus more on the product?

@sefinciuc why not focus on the product and sell the platform to agency ?
Sergiu FinciucMaker@sefinciuc · Founder of Mavio
@imknight That's exactly what we want to do in the next couple of months. It's just a bit harder for us to manage such a big system for ourselves at this stage.
Erick Barron@erickbarron86 · Webmaster
@khaliphj my thoughts exactly. Product hunt is getting corrupt or something
Khalif@khaliphj · Founder www.hiresquid.com
@erickbarron86 Ive also noticed this mostly happens early Saturday/Sunday mornings

Great idea! (And prices too), wishing you the best of lucks. My question is, what if I need a website made on Wordpress, or, a Mobile app, do you guys offer this as well?
Sergiu FinciucMaker@sefinciuc · Founder of Mavio
@_davisnz Perfect question! for now we use only Monte CMS (in-house built) to fit into the 2h sprints. But we certainly have that in our 3-6 months plan. Any individual/agency will be able to register, select their preferred technology and put their own price per sprint. It's a very crucial point for scalability 😎 Thank you

Hey Guys! At the moment, we have integrated a built-in chat system that allows everyone of us, including support team, developers, designers, members to plan, kick-start and develop the great ideas of Monte Members. However, we have thought about replacing Slack with the actual chat system we have, keeping the Sprints and main workflow. What do you guys think?

Monte has started as a site-builder / CMS, and now we've gotten ourselves providing web development help for idea stage startups. Many of you could've heard about us because of our product, and we'd like to let you know that those plans have not changed. Monte will get going into 2 roads further: 1. Web Infrastructure for individuals & agencies, where they can adapt under our process and make projects for their clients. A stable and a reliable platform, with a daily report to make the process truly transparent for the clients, and Monte will stand as a guarantor, no matter what - we'll back you up! 2. Monte Visual Edition, a site-builder to manage everything by yourself. We learned through our mistakes, with time..and realised, we could try again, and make it much better. Thank you, and let us know if we'll hit the wall again :)
