Who We Are


We specialize in the Miva Merchant eCommerce platform. Miva Merchant is an eCommerce Content Management System (ECMS) that can be used to create any kind of eCommerce app or storefront. Let us know what you have in mind.

Miva Merchant and Web Troubleshooting

Fast web repairs for your Miva Merchant store. TrickyHTML5, CSS3, jQuery, or other web tech problems holding you up? We'll figure out the issue and fix it. We always do.

Bootstrap and Other Responsive Framework Upgrades

Your site needs to be responsive to all screen sizes, especially for eCommerce and blogging. We are responsive CSS framework experts and can help you decide what's best for your site and business.

AMP Pages

AMP is a project to speed up web pages and it's gaining traction. Notice that AMP pages are nearly always at the top of the search results? If you are a blogger or have an eCommerce site, the time to add AMP capability is now before everyone does it.

Web APPS & Custom Development

Miva Script is a powerful web app development language. We use Miva Script to create interfaces to online services such as analytics systems, banking, and SMTP providers, as well as creating web apps such as a domain registrar, singles matchmaking sites, online ticket selling, a blog and forum CMS for LearnJazzPiano.com, social media sites, modules for Miva Merchant, jQuery interfaces/hookups, and more. If we can't do it for you in MivaScript, it probably can't be done.

Digital Publishing

We write technical documentation for software and hardware in the form of online documentation such as FAQs and other document management systems, as well as paper documentation in the form of books and other published material such as flyers and cards.

We also convert doc files, pdfs, and other formats to ePub and Mobi so you can sell them on Amazon, Lulu, and other online book sellers or make them available for download on your site.


Are you trying to figure out where to start your web project? You need to talk to someone who's been in the business for a while. Scot started developing for the web before the web as we know it existed. We'll help you get the right start.

Sell, Teach, Blog, get Email Signups

There are web solutions for almost anything. Have your course material online, sell products and services, fill up an email or registration list, manage a forum, and write blog posts. Anything you see happening on the web can happen on your website, you just have to decide what you want.

Perfect! Thanks for all of the expert support you have provided. Scot's Blogger module has evolved into a very useful tool for me now and I would recommend it to others wanting a built in blog for Miva stores.
