"We care about your business"
and above all, our integrity.

MAGENTO

We truly understand Magento, multichannel and ecommerce. We develop robust systems for delivering elegant, scalable solutions to complex customer requirements.

Our development method is based on transparency, communication and defined milestones. Because of this, our customers trust in our ability to deliver extensible, scalable solutions. We do all the things you'd expect of an enterprise-focused development house; we use Subversion to store incremental versions of development changes and an automated deployment process for development, staging and production environments. We create defined, measurable projects that are divided into distinct work packages. These are broken down into appropriate cases in our bug tracking system, giving our Project Managers a clear basis on which to deliver updates to customers.

The marketplace for Magento Solution partners is a hard-fought one – we've seen the Magento eCommerce platform gather pace rapidly since it came to fruition in 2007 and the amount of third-party developers multiply alongside it to match that growth. On our own journey to becoming a Gold Solution Partner, we've had to compete with companies of different shapes and sizes offering varying levels of support, but our core principles of business have always remained consistent at the forefront of our approach:

  • Quality Service
  • Expert Advice
  • Strong Client Relationships
  • Unwavering Support and...
  • A Flexible Approach

Today's Magento marketplace requires a developer that can handle any job, from the 20,000 SKUs of a global brand to the Magento integration of a local company's website. We have plentiful experience of both and everything in-between, and we'll continue to cater to all sizes of client. Our business may carry on growing but the high quality of service that drives it will always remain the same...
