We “do WordPress,” of course, but also WooCommerce, training and consulting. For us, consulting mostly means the time we spend with customers before starting a project, time that often allows for better defined aims and reduced costs. We believe that our preference for transparency, inclusion, collaboration and satisfaction of work well done sets us apart. We choose customers and associates with the aim of working together to complete projects that will satisfy everyone involved.
