4mation has been in business since 2001… That’s several generations in online terms!
Foundation! Based in a home office, 4mation Technologies started life as a small dedicated team of developers with a commitment to quality. Word of mouth soon started attracting clients and the fledgling business spread its wings…
Just over a year later, 4mation outgrew its semi-domestic setting. Keyboards were packed up and moved to 64-76 Kippax Street in Surry Hills. With even better proximity to our Sydney based clients, and located in the office adjacent to a friendly ISP, it’s proved an ideal location for us to operate from. Our PHP development skills were put to the test, and passed with flying colours working on a number of custom software development projects.
4mation launched the new year by publicly releasing a new suite of integrated web and software tools including Content Management System, Customer Relationship Management (CRM) System, Ticketing, Membership and Email Marketing. Growth continued, fuelled by the efforts of core team members Dane Eldridge, Scott Morris and Matthew Nurk.
Having developed a powerful e-commerce solution, 4mation was able to expand into new markets. Now working for well known brands including Reebok, Lacoste and Sydney FC, new staff were brought on board to handle demand, particularly for custom PHP development.
Growing pains! Six years in, 4mation responded to some friendly client feedback that our service was good, but could be better. Growth plans for the year were deliberately shelved, and our test procedures overhauled. With our commitment to quality uncompromised, we were ready for the next phase in our growth. Moving into a second larger office gave us room to spread out, and a more comfortable environment for our staff.
From strength to strength. While many companies were hit by the GFC in 2009 and forced to make redundancies, 4mation retained its team. Services were expanded to include Facebook Development, and our network of referral partners continued to grow.
Now with a team of 60+ specialist web designers, developers and producers/project managers, 4mation is still going strong. Our awesome new offices give us room to grow, our refined internal processes give our clients the certainty they need and with high demand for our mobile website and application development services, the future looks bright as we continue to bring online success to our clients.
