Open Source Application Development

CYOP's significant experience in project management and open source programming expertise provide a great foundation for our open source application development services.

CYOP specializes in the developmeent of open source Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP), Customer Relationship Management (CRM), Electronic Data Interchange (EDI), Ecommerce, and custom payment applications.

CYOP follows an agile development methodology and can work in either of two approaches:

  • Full Lifecycle Development - CYOP takes full control and accountability for the entire project including planning and analysis, design and architecture, implementation, integration, data migration, and system testing.
  • Cooperative Development - CYOP works in conjunction with our client's internal development team to provide supplemental services and perform the planning and analysis, design and architecture, implementation, integration, data migration, and system testing as a cooperative effort.

In addition to the development of custom applications, CYOP has experience in custom development, programming, customization, data migration, and software integration on the following open source platforms:

CYOP bridges the gap between open source and SaaS by leveraging enterprise-class open source software to build for our customers an application that they will OWN. Because the application is owned by the customer with full access to the souce code, there is no vendor lock-in and the application can never be obsoleted since there is a large community of open source programmers that can ensure ongoing development and support.

Once we build the application, CYOP offers numerous options as to how the application is supported. For clients with adequate IT staff & facilities, CYOP can implement the application as an on-premises solution. For customers that lack adequate facilites or IT staff, CYOP can implement and support the solution from one of its state-of-the-art data centers, or from the data center of the customer's choice.

And, because the application is owned by the customer, it can later easily be either internalized or moved to another data center without concerns of having to pay exhorbitant fees to move.

Our Approach

CYOP employs a proven project management methodology that includes a detailed requirements analysis to effectively discern feature/function requirements before any development efforts begin which minimizes deployment time and necessary re-work.

The CYOP planning process includes development of a basic Functional Design, a Gap Analyis to determine custom development efforts, a Data Migration Strategy to ensure data from current systems can be effectively migrated to the new system, and a Systems Interface Design to describe any external systems that need to be integrated and how that will be accomplished.

CYOP follows an effective Project Implementation Roadmap that combines a coordinated technical programming and development effort with sound project management to effectively bridge the gap between the client and the programmers to ensure business objectives, and not just a programming exercise, are achieved.

CYOP leverages free open source software to build for our clients an application that is highly customized for thier business and that they OWN. Because the finished application is owned by the customer who has full access to the souce code, there is no vendor lock-in and the application can never be obsoleted since with a large community of open source programmers able to ensure ongoing development and support.

How To Design & Build A Successful Ecommerce Website

If you're looking to build a successful ecommerce website, it's wise to invest significant time in planning to minimize the money spent on unnecessary programming and re-work since a little bit of planning up-front can avoid a whole lot of problems later!

Here are ten tips to create a successful ecommerce website:

  1. Try to minimize the number of products and focus on a niche market. Don't try to be like Amazon and attempt to sell everything. You can always add more products, or additional stores once you become successful with the products you start with.
  2. Develop a clear goal for every page and design the page with that goal in mind.
  3. Clearly display your contact information and make it easy with several ways to contact you.
  4. Put a strong call to action on each page.
  5. Make the checkout process easy.
  6. Keep the cart contents and current total in the cart visible.
  7. Highligh featured promotions to drive traffic to certain pages of the website.
  8. Provide layered navigation to make it easy for users to search, sort and filter for things they're looking to purchase.
  9. Provide ways for customers to save their cart for later use and share shopping cart pages with friends and family.
  10. Provide multiple shipping options and allow customers to calculate shipping costs right from your web store.
