Sometimes you just cannot get what you need out of the box. We are no strangers to custom app development. We have been building robust web applications since 1995. From 1995-2000 we launched thousands of websites with hand-crafted HTML, static files and custom Microsoft Foxpro solution. In late 2000 we moved our increasingly popular PRWeb service, to the open-source platforms of PHP & MySQL.
Since those days, we have moved to Python as our preferred platform for applications. Utilizing the Django and Flask frameworks we have been able to develop and launch some amazing platforms including Cranberry and PriorThings. Our sites use CraftCMS to manage the content of the site with Django, Flask, Node.js and Ethereum Blockchain doing the heavy lifting on the backend.
Most modern platforms have API interfaces that make it possible to automate processes and reduce the number of interactions with each transaction. We have successfully connected legacy client/server applications to web interfaces to feed into services like HubSpot, InfusionSoft, and affiliate tracking programs.
The ugly cousin to a CMS platform is an eCommerce platform. We have worked through enough of these platforms to know which ones to avoid (Magento) and which ones we prefer. In addition to custom eCommerce application development, we have successfully deployed eCommerce sites on BigCommerce, Shopify and Craft Commerce. We also have experience working with a vast number of merchant account options and navigating PCI compliance.
The Blockchain is the newest frontier for Internet technologies. The Blockchain is still the wild, wild west of web development. However, it is a mistake to underestimate its impact on the future of the internet. We are excited about the future of Blockchain tech. We are actively working on a blockchain project that could change online content syndication and license. The implications for content marketers are huge.
