We’ve been always proud about the fact we can help our customers in all matters related to web and mobile services. Most people know us by our skilled design and implementation work, and support is a natural part to any web project. We want to be known as a leading Drupal and WordPress company in the Nordics, Baltics, and the UK.
However, we’ve always provided also consulting services for customers needing help with web strategy, planning, or technology. I joined Exove about two years back to strengthen our skills in product management, and to develop our consulting services. Since that we’ve started to offer also marketing automation and agile consulting. I recently updated our consulting services on our web site. Have look and let me know what you think via the contact form, email, or by commenting to this post.
I think the real difference in Exove’s consulting stems from the fact we’ve learned our skills in real-life web projects. Our guys know what works and what doesn’t, because they’ve faced the issue, solved it, and seen how the solution actually performed. Theory is not enough, and sometimes it takes multiple iterations to get it right. Not everybody in consulting business has this privilege.
A special area we’ve worked lately with multiple clients is integration of (mostly slow) legacy backend systems with fast, responsive online services. It’s not trivial to serve thousands of users data from a backend designed for 10 concurrent users. Based on our experience Node.js and MongoDB are excellent tools to attack this kind of problem.
I’d like to conclude this post with a comment we got from one of our customers recently, and of which I’m quite proud: “your guys were very nice yet brutally honest”. Yep, this is the way we want it to be.
