WASHINGTON, Jan. 26, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DC-based Taoti Creative, a full-service digital strategy and website design agency, announced that it has acquired web and app development shop Socha Dev, Inc. The purchase will greatly expand Taoti Creative's in-house development capabilities and better serve the needs of its clients in the Washington, DC metro region and beyond.
While both teams have focused on large-scale Drupal content management system (CMS) development, Taoti's strengths have, to this point, been in the strategic and creative development of complex website projects. To date, Socha Dev has been a white-label web and app development shop specializing in overflow, triage and problem solving services. They have worked in the development phase of projects taking strategy, designs, requirements, API docs and any other pertinents and turning it all into functional applications. After several years of collaboration, Taoti Creative and Socha Dev combine forces to tightly integrate the two teams' abilities. By purchasing Socha Dev, Taoti will respond to greater, more complex client needs in less time and with more strategic communication with the technical experts from Socha Dev.
"2017 is a big year for Taoti, made bigger by the huge impact of 2016," said Taoti Creative CEO Brent Lightner. "Taoti has grown in every aspect. Revenue and head count are important growth metrics, but the real story is in how we've grown our team's culture around creativity, innovation, and 'moving the needle' for our clients. The Socha team has developed top-notch work with us in the past; in the future, our team will bring as much firepower to theirs as they will assuredly bring to ours."
At the beginning of Q3, 2016, Inc. magazine ranked Taoti Creative No. 2199 on its 35th annual Inc. 5000, the most prestigious ranking of the nation's fastest-growing private companies. This honor came at the same time Taoti completed construction on its new office space in the historic Eastern Market area of Capitol Hill and celebrated its 20-year anniversary. Taoti capped 2016 with the receipt of its first GSA Schedule.
Socha Dev was born in early 2011 when principal Jason Socha realized that the development community needed a reliable, expert team to turn to in times of need. They have worked with development teams across the U.S. to help plan and execute successful websites, web applications, and APIs. Many of these systems are built upon Drupal by its staff who have attained high levels of Drupal expertise.
