Our Services

Build web-app from scratch

We can build out full web-apps that go live within the month.

Maintenance package for existing web-apps

If we built it or someone else did, we can take care of your web-app by offering you guaranteed hours per month to ensure it stays running.

Responsive Design

We can modernize your web-app to work across all devices. We've tackled all the fancy new techinques: vertical rhythm, grid layouts, media queries, font icons, css frameworks. It doesn't scare us at all.

Database Integrity

Your data is more important than your web-app. You can't make informed descision without accurate and consistent data. We can make sure that your web-app would mangle your data so its duplicate free, dead data doesn't hang out and your data is accurately entered.

Previous Work

3poch

We built our own internal project management tool. Its like Trello+Hipchat+Asana+Jira+Duckboard. It has real time chat, complex todo list, full text search, kanban boards, workflow management, custom forms and reporting! If you submit to our contact form it goes right into 3poch. Built on Rails4, AngularJS, Postgres and Unicorn. Its truly our masterpiece.
