Quadshot- Software, LLC (“Quadshot”) was founded in 2009 in Nevada.
We are exclusively a custom WordPress development company. WordPress is the most popular publishing platform for websites, powering over 1/5 of websites through out the world. By focusing on ONE platform and doing it successfully for years, Quadshot has developed expert methods of providing our customers with stable, scalable and easy-to-manage websites.
Since inception, Quadshot has deployed many successful customer projects. Our customer’s combined sites deliver over 500 million page-views a month in diverse areas including e-commerce, publishing, news, celebrity and video/image intensive sites. While each customer project has their own unique look and feel, they are all delivered on the WordPress publishing platform.
Our founder, Michael Cremean is a former CTO and Director of Technology of several internet startups. Michael has led teams of over 70 people and managed several multi-million dollar projects over the last 20 years. The core staff of Quadshot are the ‘cream of the crop’ that Mike has worked with over the last 2 decades. This ‘elite squad’ develops some of the most downloaded plugins for WordPress and regularly contribute core changes to the WordPress open-source project.
Our company philosophy:
KISS (Keep It Simple Stupid) - We believe in simplicity so much our motto is 'Software - Made Simple'
Transparency with our customers on all project activities is good
Quality > Quantity
Open Source Software > Closed Source
We love LAMP
Focus on solutions, not problems
Working smart > working hard
When you make a mistake: admit it, learn from it and move on
Customers are awesome (they enable us to have jobs!)
P.S. Why is it named Quadshot? Well, when thinking of a company name at a local coffee shop, an order was called out. 'Mike - Quadshot'. A quick domain search and the rest is now history. Yes, a Quadshot of espresso is a bit much, but after developing for 12 straight hours, sometimes you just need more.
The four dots in our logo don't stand for the four shots of Espresso though. It represents our favorite development environment - LAMP. (Linux Apache MySQL PHP) That is what we deploy WordPress, WooCommerce and OpenTickets sites on. That 'Quadshot' powers all our customer projects.
