History of Clodify SaaS way

Clodify was born in May 2015 as a small internal project for a startup in Ukraine. They were looking for a cheap and useful way to manage their customers. Most of the existing services of that time were either offline, quite complex, oriented on middle and big business sizes, or very expensive. A decision was made to develop CRM system. During 5 years the system was fully transformed from a very little CRM system to a fully-featured online SaaS CRM system. The right tech stack was chosen and since the system grows very fast, it has become modern, and secure in a short period. Nowadays, thousands of customers are using the basic version of Clodify for free. And many of them are considering Clodify as the core system of their business and keep on using many useful paid modules.
Clodify History

LAMPStack solution based on the Yii2 Framework was initially chosen. It was easy to start, however, that approach has its complexities to separate UI from Business Logic.

And not only from this point of view. Since the first release of the Clodify system, web standards have dramatically transformed.

The existing system could not meet today’s clients’ needs, such as practicality and simplicity, neither complex management requirements.

At the same time, JAMStack was announced.

Skynix took that risk and decided to migrate to JAMStack at the very beginning.

Having passed a difficult way through the new JAMStack architecture, the Skynix team managed to get all the necessary components working like a breeze.

Clodify became a full-featured system and their team’s reliable companion, remarkably transforming their operations, skyrocketing their ROI, and allowing them to keep growing for years to come.

Even having significant expenses the Clodify team keeps a basic version of CRM free of charge. Any small startup requires to be cost-effective, otherwise, it dies. When a business spends tons of money on paperwork, all the processes go very slow, customers are not happy and the business loses money. And instead of gaining profit, the business should balance expenses and income. Clodify software gives the solution.
