From our Berkeley office, we serve clients ranging from small businesses to Fortune 500 companies.
With our commitment to excellence, we offer unsurpassed attention to detail and level of service. We find ways to optimize your budget and maximize your results.
We often get asked what web technologies we use. The short answer is, whatever serves our clients best.
That means we'll take the time in the project definition stage to make sure all good options are being considered. We tend to like the open source CMS, Drupal, for sites that require a fair amount of customization. If your needs are simple, Wordpress might be the best solution, or for very simple sites, just straight html. For eCommerce, we've implemented Magento for complex sites, and services such as Shopify for simpler stores. In other words, We have the breadth of experience to find the most appropriate and cost effective solution for your particular needs.
