  • WordPress Development

    WordPress is the world's most used Content Management System (CMS). Used by novice bloggers and major corporations, WordPress is a flexible platform suitable for publishers of all kinds.

    Our team has extensive experience customizing WordPress to meet your individual needs, including:

    • Custom Plug-in Development
    • Custom Theme Development
    • Site Hosting, Backup and Maintenance
    • Training

  • API Integrations

    On the web, there is no need to build everything from scratch. At Fivesense, we've worked with some of the top web-based services to integrate their features into our client's projects. Whether you're looking to offer your customers a shipping quote, accept credit card payments, or interact with your social networks, there is probably an Application Programming Interface (API) to help you do it - and we can help.

    We have experience with many APIs, including:

    • Scancode, Canada Post Shipping Services
    • PayPal, Stripe, BeanStream, Hosted Checkout, Moneris
    • Google Analytics, Pipedrive, MailChimp
    • Twitter, Facebook, Twilio, Crocodoc

  • Chris Taylor
    "Having worked with a wide range of developers over the course of my career, I can safely say that the Fivesense team is one of the most professional, responsive and generally positive groups I've had the pleasure of knowing. Two of the biggest things I look for from developers is communication and accountability, and these guys have both in spades. Highly Recommend."

    "I have been very pleased with Fivesense Technologies service over the years. Shawn Hooper and his partners offer responsive technology in more ways than one. It's a pleasure to get 'extra-mile' service in these days of slipshod and off-shored customer care."
