Development makes it work.
Why choose EE?
ExpressionEngine (EE) is a commercial CMS product built on an Open Source foundation, thereby offering the best of both worlds. ExpressionEngine’s codebase is 100% open, transparent, and extensible. As a commercial product, EE is supported by a team of committed developers and technical support specialists. Sure, we’re biased, but when it comes to CMS, EE is among the best. And we’re among the best at it.
If you’re looking for a small, committed team for your website project, look no further. We work with organizations, small and large, to help build successful CMS solutions to achieve their goals. Our experience with ExpressionEngine makes the setup and execution of projects fast and efficient. Our agile approach to developing websites aids in producing a well-rounded product that leads to the conversions you’re seeking.
Perhaps you don’t need the extensive research, design development, and ground-up deployment offered in our full-service project package. If you’re simply looking for a team of developers to build out the site you’ve already designed, we can do that. We love to team up with other organizations to help complete their puzzle and bring their project to fruition. We gladly work alongside other teams to build great products.
We’re experienced and ready to help.
The longer you spend with a product, the better you know it, and we know EE inside and out. We’ve built sites with it and add-ons for it, and trained others how to use it for years. We have soup-to-nuts experience with planning site architecture, multi-environment setup and support, deployment strategies, and performance evaluation. If you need guidance for your EE project, we can help. Even if you just need us to lend an ear to an idea.
We build custom Add-ons
If you need it, we can build it.
How it works
One of our favorite aspects of ExpressionEngine is its extendability. The software, as a whole, is a wonderful content management platform that we’ve build on, creating some pretty unique features. We believe that successful website project grow from a powerful foundation. We start with EE and then develop custom add-ons for our projects and our clients. If you need of custom add-on for an EE project, we would love to discuss the details.
