We Power Digital Commerce

For Manufacturers & Distributors

DCKAP is a full-service digital commerce agency.

But it wasn’t always that way. Our journey began back in 2005 with two computers and an office space in Chicago. Back then, we were simply a bootstrapped technology company with a dream. Two years later, we moved the headquarters from Chicago to Fremont, California. In order to maximize efficiency and value for clients, in 2008, our founder Karthik Chidambaram established a state of the art development center in Chennai, India.

The Shift to Open Source Platforms

While delivering custom solutions for clients, it became apparent that open source technologies and platforms were the way of the future. We shifted our focus to becoming experts on platforms such as Magento, WordPress, Drupal, and Joomla, as well as began developing applications for iOS. After establishing ourselves as Magento experts, in 2014 we turned our focus to e-commerce and made it our sole mission to drive online revenue for our clients.

To E-Commerce & Beyond

Today, DCKAP has emerged uniquely positioned to help manufacturers and distributors thrive online. While we are platform agnostic, we know Magento as well as anybody, and have the certifications to show for it. We have offices and team members across North America and India which allows us to pursue a “geo-neutral” approach and source the best talent for the job, regardless of location. In many cases, we’re here to answer your questions during the day, and our hard at work executing on the task at hand while you sleep.

Beyond

While at our core, we are a full-service solution who designs, develops, integrates, implements, and market solutions, at the end of the day, we’re best summed up in three words:

Powering Digital Commerce.
