Who Are We?
Shopsys is the biggest provider of technical online shop development services in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, and currently covers more than 450 ecommerce sites. Among its clients are some of the biggest international companies and brands, such as OfficeDepot, Zippo, B2B Partner and Demos.
The company was founded in 2003 by 16-year old Petr Svoboda who created the first version of the Shopsys software. By 2005, 100 of onlines stores were it, and in 2010 the 4th version Shopsys was created and the 500th online store license was sold. From 2012 onward we have been offering our services as a dedicated development team for big electronic retail companies.
In 2016 we started work on an international ecommerce platform that would better meet the needs of medium and large scale customers with a high volume of orders. We quickly noticed that there was a lack of this kind of software on the market. We decided to build Shopsys Framework on top of Symfony and release it in an open source version. Between 2016 and 2018 two investment funds: Reflex Capital (owned by Ondrej Fryc, founder of Mall.cz) and Incomming Ventures invested into our company.
Besides providing Shopsys Framework for in-house and dedicated dev teams, we currently use Shopsys Framework (SSFW) in-house to create custom-made online stores with up to tens of millions of Euros of turnover per year.
Shopsys = Caregiver
While our clients always take priority in terms of ensuring their needs are met, we are also always looking for ways to improve and support the environment we work in. That’s why we continue to put ourselves behind organizing ShopCamp, Barcamp Ostrava, PHP live, and Symfony meetings. We also issue the EXEC magazine for ecommerce managers from CEE region.
