Strategic eCommerce + Cost Efficient Web Development = Vi Commerce

A Better eCommerce Approach

Vi Commerce is a premier web / mobile development firm specializing in scalable eCommerce, engaging user experiences, and conversion-focused site strategy. We pride ourselves in being a full-service and cost-efficient partner that enables brands and organizations to exceed their online business objectives and stand out amongst the crowd.

Not your typical development firm…

Our mission from the beginning was to create a business that could help organizations innovate and grow despite the escalating costs of hiring and training technology professionals in the U.S.. We believe that we have accomplished this by working with our team in the Philippines to save our clients upwards of 70% in development costs without sacrificing quality and reliability. Unlike other outsourcing firms, we eliminate the negative stigmas of “outsourcing” by utilizing a hybrid delivery approach . Vi Commerce’s Hybrid Delivery Approach offers the best of two worlds: U.S.-based consultants & support, in conjunction with cost-efficient offshore eCommerce project management and development. We have a face-to-face relationship with all of our clients and our U.S. team is intimately involved with all project work until our client’s goals are met.

We know our success is contingent upon our clients’ successes so we work hard to achieve the best results possible for our clients.
