We’re always focused on finishing projects on time and within budget, while also making sure the end products we deliver to our clients are fresh, exciting and impressive and meet only top quality standards.

And that is why Clutch views us as one of the leading e-commerce developers in Canada.

Based in Washington D.C. Clutch is a leading B2B ratings and reviews website which aims to put clients in touch with service providers who will be the ideal fit for their project needs and requirements. Clutch analysts segment the vendors listed on their site according to location and industry and then rank them based on their focus and ability to deliver in order to help clients make a competitive decision.

What makes Clutch an objective platform is that their focus score reflects the services that each provider offers, but at the same time the score for ability to deliver is dependent on their client reviews, market presence, and awards.
Clutch analysts also verify each review by interviewing past clients about previous projects. The analysis helps them capture the full scope of each project and the extent of the client’s relationship with the provider.

Based on these criteria, Clutch analysts have rated us with a perfect 5 out of 5 star rating.

Here are just a few testimonials from our clients:

Drupal 8 packs more than 200 new features and upgrades, guaranteed to boost web development and user experience to new levels. It is an all-round and flexible solution for s successful web presence in the modern internet environment.
Let’s take a look at a few features that make Drupal 8 extremely appealing for developers and users, laying cool and exciting technologies at their fingertips and easing up their work.

Drupal 8 comes equipped with the CKEditor, one of the most versatile text editors available today. No separate modules or libraries need to be installed, no additional coding is required. The CKEditor is also intuitive and easy to use, so it’s perfect for seasoned, as well as les experienced authors and publishers. Complementary, you can edit content right on the front-end if you are logged in.

Responsiveness is built into the core and Drupal 8 is mobile ready. This means significantly less development time for styling images, blocks, menus and other items. The site pages, including media, input fields, interactive items and other features are automatically scaled and adapted to match any screen resolution and display size.

Drupal 8’s multilingual capabilities are vastly extended. More than 200 languages are available and that’s not all. It has 4 key modules built into the core, which allow you translate virtually any piece of content and feature once activated. This feature is perfect for multinational enterprise and corporate websites with multiple admins speaking various languages. The admin interface is also multi-lingual.

A new theme engine, Twig, provides exquisite styling. Twig is based on PHP and highly flexible. Part of the Symfony2 framework, Twig replaces PHPTemplate as the default templating engine, to ensure optimal performance is terms of style and visual appearance through several handy functions. Compared to other engines of this kind, Twig is less complex, but more powerful and ensures better style and functionality for websites and web apps.

A very important aspect is that Drupal 8 complies with the latest web industry standards. It uses top notch PHP 7 standards like PSR-4, namespaces, and traits plus widely used external libraries like Guzzle, Zend Feed Component, Composer, PHPUnit and others. It is also aligned with HTML5, the fifth and current version of the HTML standard for websites.

We could talk time about the numerous features that make Drupal 8 a secure, reliable and viable CMS for all industry sectors and all purposes for a long time but we encourage you to try it. You will love it for sure.
