I.T. Boutique Artisan Crew, Los Angeles.
Custom Software, Custom Marketing Solutions.

Artisan Crew is the
that specializes in

A little about us: Since 2001, we have partnered with companies from the U.S., Japan, and around the world to bring new brands, custom software solutions, and businesses to life. When we team up with different brands and manufacturers to create comprehensive brand identities, we do so much more than just "design" or "advertising buying", we help clients internationalize, not "localize", their services, we help clients develop business plans & strategies for successful online properties, and then help those clients find the best way to affordably market online and off, create buzz and brand advocates, train staff and then share the success. We believe that a website or web campaign is only as good and honest as the company behind it and strive to form partnerships where everyone involved, from the president of our client company to their end consumer, is happy and satisfied.

New Client Memo: Apologies in advance, but we can't take on clients that run sites / sell services or sell products that we believe to be illicit or harmful to consumers. On a similar note, we never take more than one company per sector if we're doing their SEO / SEM / Online Marketing Strategies to prevent conflicts of interest. We don't show all client work because of various NDA restriction, but will tell you up-front if we can't take on a new client in your sector.

Website Design & Web Development by Artisan Crew

What makes our web design special?
(Our online shop, marketing website & website design principles do.)

All of our clients find us through our own web marketing and choose us based on our web development successes. Think about this. If you're considering hiring us to develop or design your website, we've shown you we can do one of our most important jobs; get visitors looking for specific services / products to a website. How we make money for you is how we make money for ourselves.

If your web design / internet marketing firm found you, RUN. They've already shown you that they can't successfully do for themselves what they're trying to get you to pay them to do for you.

I.T. & Custom Software Development by Artisan Crew: Part #1

CMS (Contents Management Systems) &
Database Driven Catalog Publishing Software

Custom Contents Management Systems (C.M.S.)

Even companies with their own internal developers and internet divisions can benefit from a robust C.M.S. (Contents Management System) driving their website. Yet sadly, because most "web design firms" and "online ad agencies" don't have real software developers internally and have to have an ad or web account rep oversee farming out programming and development (often over-seas) with varying degrees of success and often failure since they can't back up the work of those third-party developers, they don't have the option of offering custom C.M.S. solutions to their clients and instead have to "customize" (set specific fields and parameters in) popular and readily available C.M.S. like Wordpress, Joomla or Drupal. If one of those solutions is satisfactory and specialized contents and formats aren't needed, they might be a solution for some. Artisan Crew chooses not to focus on the pre-packaged solutions and instead offers a fully custom CMS for those of you who just need more, and who need the originality of not starting at the same place as every other business in your sector.

In fewer words, why a company might need a custom Contents Management System (CMS) with so many boxed solutions available.


Custom CMS Merit 1:

Technically and from a software development standpoint, there's the flexibility to do almost anything. Sure, your budget may be limited and that will limit the extent of where the custom CMS software goes, but you're going to get something unique to your needs, NOT fit your need to the available system which is what a boxed applications requires.


Custom CMS Merit 2:

In the marathon race that is S.E.O., is you're all using the same CMS, even one that claims that they are "Search Engine Optimized", none of you start out ahead because you're all running the exact same thing. Custom CMS, when well designed, can help make your SEO starting point a mile ahead of the boxed guys.


Custom CMS Merit 3:

With a commonly used CMS you might not look shoddy, but you're going to look like everyone else. If you're the only company selling your particular service or goods, that may work out fine. But if you're competing with anybody else, how are you going to win using exactly the same ammunition? A boxed CMS can get you to the same starting line as everybody else, but it just doesn't get you ahead of the pack.

Automated Database Driven Catalog Production: Web, PDF, InDesign and more

Cut your catalog production costs in half

The Web

Keep your online catalogs up-to-date and have them accurately represent your product lineup, pricing, and description changes. Web catalogs even have built-in S.E.O., allowing more visitors to find your site, view and buy your products.


Create pre-press ready or web uploadable .pdf files with the click of a button. Print catalogs can be exported as InDesign, PDF or Excel files.

Printed Catalog

Simply design the template and set the layout once to create and update your catalog as many times as your company needs. If you publish web or print catalogs more than 4 times a year and don't want to hire a printing company several times annually, print directly from your system database to save time and money. A lot of money.

Custom software development & mobile system software design

ACE Inc. Custom Software Development: Enterprise Software Solutions

What makes Artisan Crew Engineering Inc's custom system software so different from packaged solutions is that we allow your system data to not only be protected and accessed, but help you make it into a powerful offense tool as well. If you're using packaged ERP solutions for your business, chances are you've spent hundreds of thousands to "customize" a boxed software and you've modified some of your business practices to work with the software specs instead of the other way around. If you absolutely need to use YOUR unique business capabilities; YOUR special business logic, YOUR streamlined routines, and everything that makes your business out-of-the-box thinkers, it can can be lost with a from-the-box software solution. When you can use all your unique processes and flows you've gotten an edge over your competitors who are matching their processes up to work with their input requirements.

Use multiple currencies in your transaction? We've got you covered. Have unique inventory management systems? We can help you keep managers responsible for the inventory they ordered. We've helped both American and Japanese companies come up with system software that works for the unique multi-cultural multi-business regulation and laws, and taxation that they have to deal with to stay competitive and grow in a global environment. **

**While some app development can start around $10,000, custom enterprise system software development generally starts from at least $30,000~. We are happy to provide clients with system development quotes based on system specs you provide us. If you have zero idea of what the actual project scope is and "are just looking for some general costs" it generally won't be possible to make even a reasonably accurate project quote without fairly detailed system specs and is usually irresponsible to even try. If you need to have those system specifications developed for you so you can get accurate quotes from software developers, we can provide systems software consulting for between $200 and $350 an hour depending on consultation scope. WARNING: Custom software development is calculated based on total project hours and scope. Without a detailed project scope, the type of quote you can get from generalized sales staff can easily be inaccurate to the tune of tens to hundreds of thousands of dollars. Think of it this way; You can't get a reliable construction estimate for a house without providing the construction company with a blueprint, and you're not going to get a reliable quote for system software development without detailed system specs. And just as an architect doesn't provide you with a working blueprint to build a house for free, neither do System Engineers who can actually develop.

Data processing that took 3 hours in the old system now takes 5 minutes.

About our custom software development

Custom Mobile System / Mobile App Development

Increase sales with a mobile system application (Sales force automation)

SFA allows the sales force to check inventory levels, customer account information, cross-sell opportunities, promotional opportunities, and just about any other vital information from anywhere. With custom software you and ACE, Inc. design together, you define just how much -or how little- information is available to whom.

Streamline work processes with custom mobile system applications

Reduce Human Error. Old-fashioned handwritten order forms are subject to a variety of human errors. Everything from penmanship, fax quality, and interpretation can affect the accuracy of an order. That opportunity for error is multiplied daily as the orders "play telephone" down the data entry and fulfillment chain. With all these factors, it's no wonder companies lose millions of dollars on simple human error. Luckily, SFA can virtually eliminate most of the causes of such errors. What once took a small army can now be accomplished with one salesperson, and most of it can be accomplished remotely in the field at the touch of a finger.
