We are SwiftOtter. Between the four of us, we represent over twenty years of software development experience. We make beautiful, effective websites built on the Magento platform. We provide website development and second-level support for Magento. We have developed a large suite of solid and lightweight Magento modules that provide significant additional functionality.
Our Mission: we strive to make our clients successful in their businesses. We primarily do this through modernizing/making and supporting websites based on the Magento platform. We believe that a quality, tested and thus user-friendly website will make a substantial difference in customer perception of the website and thus sales. We endeavor to customize the admin panel to be tuned to our clients needs and make their business processes more efficient. This begins with a strategy that encapsulates who our client wants to target and how the site is to function, continues through a design, and results in a quality build of the site. After the site is released, we continue to work with the client to further optimize the website. Finally, we strive to have excellent and open communication and support with our clients.
Most other Magento development companies bill on a per-project basis. While we can work on a per-project basis, it means we have to overestimate the project so that I make sure we come out ahead – and that costs you money. It's hard for you to be successful if you are over-paying for solutions. That is why we generally work on an hourly basis. We are upfront about our rates
High volume is defined as any number of hours over 50 in a three-month period.
We have an awesome team: we are family (really). Joseph is the lead developer and designer (you can see his StackOverflow profile here). Steve (also known as Dad) is a project manager and business strategist, Christopher is a project manager (and has quite the knack for tracking down bugs), and Jesse is our amazing all-around Magento developer.
At SwiftOtter Studios, we take our own unique process to giving your customers the very best experience on your website that is possible. Although we do not hold ridgidly to these steps, we use these as general guidelines. The reason for this is that we want to be 100% flexible for you. We believe in fast iterations of bite-sized pieces of functionality. This allows quick development, narrow-focused testing and rapid deployment. Let’s look at each one now.
We transformed Pleasant Hill Grain's site from pre-2000' style to a modern, powerful and beautiful website built on Magento. In order to maximize the efficiency of their team, we have extended the platform dramatically in both the frontend and the admin panel. Customers have loved the improvements and have said that the website is more usable, more accessible, and more aesthetically pleasing.
River Valley Woodworks is masters of wood, as the name implies. They work in Southern Idaho and have impressive experience in reconstruction of large barns. Anthony approached us to improve the aesthetics of site. We put together and design and then built the website to reflect the agreed upon design. It's goal is to bring a presence of their services and products to the Treasure Valley.
Joplin Door is a rapidly growing contracting company that was seeking to onboard new contractors efficiently. The current process was cumbersome and inconsistent with documents being emailed or faxed and information being keystroked in - a process prone to errors. Joplin Door came to us seeking a streamlined solution and we worked with them on a complete system to handle the process of bringing these contractors onboard. We built the website ground-up to suit their needs and integrated with another website that provides excellent security for handling sensitive documents. We built a full admin panel, and contractor area to allow them to view their profile and complete documents.
We had the privilege of completely overhauling Marlow White’s website. Their previous platform was well on it’s way to being a decade old and was limiting their growth potential. We recommended that they implement Magento Enterprise as the new platform. A complete overhaul was performed and every single page on the old website was evaluated for accuracy and transitioned to the new website. In addition, many improvements were made to business processes to reduce mistakes or problems in the order process.
This was a very enjoyable project! Gracious May was previously hosted on Adobe Catalyst. While that system served their needs, they felt it was time to move to a new, more customizable setup - and they chose SwiftOtter Studios. We had the pleasure of working through the creative process, developing a new look and feel that promoted their brand identity, and make an attractive ecommerce solution for their customers.
Titus2.com is a ministry for encouraging families in Jesus Christ. I had the blessing of being able to migrate them from their own in-house shopping cart to Magento. Their existing cart was not built for maintainability, and they were pushing the boundaries. Magento is rock-solid, easy to use and very maintainable.
