Through the years we've worked with a number of companies and tools for implementing projects. Here are a few that we use on a regular basis to help our clients succeed. We think they're all quite good and are happy to recommend them.
Finance and Payments
A comprehensive and cost efficient payment gateway system. Enables you to easily utilise a host of global and localised payment methods with built in fraud checking mechanisms.
A quick, ubiquitous, and straightforward payment system.
Part of Magento out-of-the-box – why wouldn’t you use it?
Enterprise-grade accounting suite, at a decidedly un-enterprise price.
Code management tool built by developers for developers so we love it, but our clients do too as it makes it easy for us to be transparent 'under the hood'.
Code review system that helps us quickly manage code merging and code best practises with confidence, so we can spend more time on the complicated stuff.
Great tool for keeping an eye on live logs. Know about problems before they become problems.
Code deployment system which takes the headaches out of getting your code live, fast!
Communication and Marketing
We use Slack to communicate internally, across multiple locations and multiple timezones. If you suffer from internal company email-itis, you should take a look at using it.
Integrates nicely with Magento, a great way to manage your online customer service.
Email marketing tool around since nearly the dawn of the internet as we know it. Don’t charge as much as some of the other big guys, but still fairly loaded features and great integration with Magento.
Another email marketing tool that’s been around even longer – fully loaded and well-integrated features for Magento retailers.
Hosting and Security
Our preferred Magento hosting provider. Don’t trust your Magento hosting to just anyone. We’ve used them for years after having been on a number of trips down dark hosting alleys. And now couldn’t be happier for having found them.
If you’re still hosting your own dedicated servers in a back room somewhere in your office, then you need to look into AWS – if you need to host any service on the cloud, look no further.
Nowadays it’s not a question of if you’re website will be attacked, but when. Get website security peace of mind without having to reduce your company's pension contributions.
Allows you to easily complete your PCI Compliance scanning and documentation requirements.
