Our Platforms and Expertise

Everyone Claims to Be a Technology Expert

People tend to ask us questions like: What programming language do you use? Or do you host on Apache servers? Do you do integrate with Netsuite? These are important questions, but technology is only half the battle. The real question that should be asked is this, how do you go about making sure you build software that will meet my needs?

That's why this page exists.
