The era of monolithic all-in-one applications is over. Custom development allows you to connect specialized software to keep you ahead of the competition.
There is something unique about the way we roll. When it comes to technology, we are like architects. We are on your team and on your side. If you have an in-house CTO (or an entire tech department) we can work with them on the best strategy for your technology investments. If not, we can provide this as a service. As architects, we’ll sprint the plan and help you select the right contractor for the job. We’ll make sure they stick to the plan. No more fairytales.
Nowadays it’s hard to imagine digital products that are not connected to third party specialized software. Examples of these are payment providers, warehouse management software, marketing automation tools, ERP & accounting software, transactional email services, helpdesk systems and so on. The advent of artificial intelligence will only increase the need for third party integrations in the coming years.
For every integration there is fine a balance to strike between data & technology ownership on the one hand and efficiency gains on the other. We will guide you through the countless options and make sure you make the most of your valuable resources.
In order to advise you on the technology stack for your future digital product we need to get a deep understanding of your current infrastructure and your future needs. Functional & technical analysis combined with strong technical expertise form the basis of our strategic advice. We don’t dictate the technology, the project does!
We use a software development methodology that fits our “Less talk. More Action” mentality and our focus on transparency. The main takeaways of this methodology are:
The web is our platform of choice. Twenty years ago it started out as a collection of hyperlinked documents; today it is capable of delivering entire applications via the browser.
We strongly believe in the added value of open source software. The cross-company expertise it brings to the table helps everyone to achieve better results, faster. It is also an important part of the equation when it comes to technology ownership and avoiding vendor lock-in.
Our primary technology is PHP - the most popular programming language of the Web and Symfony - the best framework for it. For e-commerce our main weapon of choice is the Sylius framework (which is built on Symfony). We are also an official Sylius partner.
Besides Symfony and Sylius we also use many other technologies but listing them all on this page would be overkill as the spectrum of technologies required for modern web applications is growing more complex by the day. To get an impression of what the technology spectrum for a 2018 web developer looks like you can have a look at eg. this roadmap.
