Process

The idea factory
We bring an expert perspective to client engagements through:
  • an understanding of the unique architectures of Shopify and Magento
  • a mastery of scalable application development
  • a commitment to security best practices
  • an insight into emerging e-commerce trends
We adhere to “agile-light” development processes and tools, in the spirit of adapting to our clients’ cultures and environments. Following this pattern, ideas and tasks tend to go through predictable cycles.
