What does DCKAP mean?

When we started in 2005, our hope was to have a very short name, specifically a short dot-com domain name. Unfortunately, all the company names we thought of were already taken. So, we decided to take a different approach and came up with DCKAP (pronounced D-C-KAP) which represents the family initials of founder Karthik Chidambaram. We also used the opportunity to form an acronym:
Dexterous, Creative, Knowledgeable, and Aspiring People

Why are we different?

We take pride in our work culture. We have an amazing team and we understand how to leverage each other’s strengths. We have an open work culture and the majority of our business is generated through word of mouth and referrals. We also have a lean sales team, allowing us to focus on our clients and partners.

Our Story

We started our journey back in 2005 as a bootstrapped technology company with two people, two computers, and two desks out of a small apartment in Chicago, Illinois. In 2007, DCKAP moved its headquarters to Fremont, California and then expanded operations in 2008 with a new facility in Chennai, India to curate a “geo-neutral” approach. This has given us the ability to source the best talent for the job, regardless of location.

Early on, our work experience encompassed many different avenues and numerous ventures, from web design and curating email ads, to entering the mobile apps market and developing iOS applications. ‘HomeFly’ and ‘Learn Alphabets & Numbers’ are some of the early developments in iOS applications created by our team.

What began as a combination of work in web design, mobile app development, and game development, eventually grew into something more focused, particularly after the unveiling of Magento in 2007-2008. We became early adopters and also experimented with AdWords and Search Engine Optimization. Eventually, we built a team of specialists on the Magento platform, as well as teams working with Drupal, Joomla, WordPress, iOS, Android, and Gaming.

As the years passed and we continued to strategize for the future, we realized that we needed to focus our efforts for success in the industry. We decided to specialize in the area of digital commerce and dominate the field. In 2012, we began to focus solely on the Magento platform and scale back our work with other platforms.

By 2015, we had become an official Magento Partner, with dozens of certified developers and experts on hand, and many more being added to the team each year. We worked closely with the Magento team, understanding the value of a partner ecosystem, partner marketing, and the tight knit community. Soon after, we began to expand our efforts to other key players in the industry such as Shopify, BigCommerce, and integrative ERP systems.

In 2017, DCKAP rebranded and embraced the Rhino as our new and improved company logo to represent our new perspective. At the same time, we released our flagship product for customization, Productimize (Product Customization Platform). The following year, we released two more premium products, Cloras (ERP Integration Platform) and QA Touch (Test Management Tool). Then, we launched flexiPIM (Product Information Management) in 2019, creating a full suite of digital products for a complete solution.

We’ve made it our sole mission to enhance the customer experience and drive online revenue for our clients. Today, DCKAP is uniquely positioned to help brands, manufacturers, and distributors everywhere thrive online. While we are platform agnostic, as experts in leading platforms, we are dedicated to creating the best experience for each and every client, and we have the certifications and skills to show for it.
