|theFactory brand was created in 2006 by SKEPSIS Consult Company, a well-established and successful business in the IT field as a software development house, who started it's activity in 1993.
Being firstly involved in Mambo Extensions Development, the Company thought to create a new brand, representing the Web Development area and more particular, the Content Management System Solutions. One of the first steps in creating theFactory brand was made in 2006, by acquiring some key and promising solutions and developers from Softmarket Company, in order to expand our range.
For the following years, we boosted the CMS World, especially the Joomla CMS
community with very complex and professional extensions, saving users and web masters a lot of money for complex custom work by providing them stable and powerful applications, for the best price/quality report. In time, we decided not to limit the users to a certain CMS, but to enrich their possibilities in order to really help the CMS Community, not only a certain CMS.
As a key player in the Joomla Development Solutions, we started the expansion towards other CMS Solutions and stand-alone Products in order to provide CMS Users around the world, the possibility to really make and have a choice. When choosing a CMS, most of the users base their decision also taking under consideration how many components and extensions are available around a certain CMS.
Fortunately our large team is very versatile and due to our strong infrastructure built for the last decade, we have the power to develop further, while not many other software houses can keep the pace or can afford doing it. Since CMS is the future of every man on the web, we can really do something about it and reach a helping hand from our position as already one of the biggest CMS Solutions developer out there.
Most of the existing solutions, especially extensions around a free CMS like Joomla, are just developed over night or created as copies of a initial project where the life expectancy does not exceed six months. After that, most of the products are discontinued, not being further developed or supported. This happens out of several reasons... One of them is actually that part of the extensions providers are one-man company and after a period of time, some are loosing either the interest or they are finding a better way of an income. Of course there is always an exception like the VirtueMart developer, but this is just a well known exception confirming the rule. Another disadvantage of other 3rd parties is that when creating and maintaining a single extension, there is a huge drawback regarding the generalization and compatibility to multiple platforms and configurations, due to picayune experience and limited staff cooperation.
Why us? Why choose our products?
We as a development company, we plan, develop and support our products through the complete life circle of the CMS. This can be seen, on products like the Auction Factory, which was for around one year under development and beta stages, then after its release three years ago, we continued to develop it, offering now not only the best extension for Joomla, but the best PHP auction script on the market at an affordable price for everyone. By doing this we saved our clients from making significant investments of 5 digit sums to develop their needed platform.
An important strength beside the high quality and flexibility of our products, is also the support we are providing. This amazed many of our clients who thought our support is just a plain statement. But when they needed us, they were happily surprised to see a high quality standard and professionalism which is rarely encountered in business over the Internet.
Last, but not least, as a software house, we create job positions for our staff, contributing not only on a professional level, but also on the economical and social one. When we started this, we were advised not to invest in any Romanian business. But we thought that bringing here the German mentality, together with the local creativity could end up with nice results for our customers... and the last couple of years are certifying it.
We would like to thank all our customers for their intimated trust and business support!
