This year Create Hosting celebrated 14 years in business, besides the long hours and sleepless nights we wouldn’t have achieved this milestone without the support of our clients and suppliers. This year we are putting our own spin on the 12 Days of Christmas tradition and are going to give a shout out to all those to whom we owe our gratitude. We have many people to thank but have selected just 12 (some selected randomly).
#1 SODA Inc.
SODA Inc. has provided us with a professional and vibrant shared office space in the heart of Hamilton’s CBD. Not only do we have the benefits of a corporate office space – meeting rooms, reception services, coffee machines, high speed internet, etc – but SODA Inc. also facilitates networking with complimentary businesses and offers a range of growth programmes. This co-working space gets a big thumbs up from us. http://www.sodainc.com/coworking
#2 Moustache Republic
Tony and his team at Moustache Republic are our go-to Magento developers. We can’t rate them highly enough – they are efficient, reliable, very responsive to feedback – and a joy to work with. On their about us page they call themselves an “extraordinary team”; we can confirm that this is not an exaggeration. www.moustacherepublic.com
#3 Loyal Clients
We have been very fortunate to be supported by loyal clients who have been with us from the start. To those of you who are always polite, who submit clear support requests, who understand the value of our services, who always pay your bills on time we are hugely grateful. We can’t do it without your ongoing support.
Graphic design made easy and accessible, thanks to canva.com‘s online software. An invaluable resource for clients who want professional graphics but are on a tight budget.
#5 Seletti Concept Store
Sometimes it’s difficult to anticipate the full scope of a project at the beginning, often unexpected issues crop up so we’re grateful when clients show patience and understanding during a difficult project. This was the case with a recent Vend integration we worked on for Seletti Concept Store.
Our clients rely on us to recommend solutions and reliable vendors; we are grateful to Fooman who is a Magento extension vendor that has never let us down. Excellent extensions, written with best practice code and complimented with top class support. If Fooman offers a solution to your problem, we suggest that you look no further. http://store.fooman.co.nz/
Lero9 really embraces the community spirit of Magento by regularly organising and hosting Magento meetups in Auckland. We’re grateful to Lero9 for giving us the opportunity to connect with the NZ Magento community. If you want to join the meetup visit http://www.meetup.com/Auckland-Magento-User-Group/ for the details.
#8 Last Season
Thanks to Last Season for always keeping us on our toes. We regularly make tweaks to their custom hosting to ensure optimised performance, especially important when the site is hit with huge visitor numbers after an advertising campaign.
#9 Meta Digital
Here at Create Hosting we don’t do a whole lot of advertising (we should but…) so we rely on word of mouth and referrals. Our gratitude goes out to Meta Digital for regularly sending clients our way. They know that we will provide a premium hosting service for their customers.
Inchoo are the Magento gurus based in Croatia and this year they organised the 2016 Developers Paradise in their own backyard, beautiful Opatija. The conference was a great balance of work and fun so a big thank you to Inchoo for being great hosts and contributing to the Magento community. See http://inchoo.net/.
