If you are not looking to do a large web project, but simply need to add a few new features to your website, modify existing functionality of your web app, fix a bug in your software, EBI is here to help.
Since 1997 EBI has been building custom software systems for small businesses and nonprofits. Our early successes included developing a mini-ERP system based on Microsoft Windows 95 and client-server technologies for a manufacturer of bricks and tiles, and a specialized sales management software for a nascent food processing market. In 2001 the company shifted its strategic focus from traditional software to creating web applications and websites after delivering Academic Operation System 2.0 for the Washington Center for Internships and Academic Seminars.
As Content Management Systems (CMS) gained popularity EBI has embraced this trend by leveraging many open source products, such as Joomla, WordPress, Drupal, Typo3, and MediaWiki to deliver many websites and portals powered by these platforms. The company also created its own CMS offering, SmartBee(r) SMS to manage websites that fit a certain profile. One of the largest websites built on SmartBee(r) SMS was an intranet portal for the United States Department of Labor.
In 2009 and 2010 EBI has developed and successfully launched two professional social networks: BMEplanet for the University of Virginia and GBSN Connect for The Global Business School Network. In addition to social networking functionality these portals were built with a rich set of idea sharing and crowdsourcing features. For BMEplanet the company has also developed a web-based mobile app optimized for iPhones, iPads and Google Android phones.
Despite many different software projects, EBI continues to focus on and refine its core expertise which include custom web software development, web design and consulting, and implementing content management solutions.
He is also a skilled technical analyst boasting years of experience in system analysis and design, software requirements gathering, business process re-engineering and storyboard development. Alex’s usability experience sets him apart from most developers. He has a keen eye for what makes a web-based application or content heavy website intuitive.
Alex graduated from Syracuse University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Computer Science and a Master Degree in System Engineering from the University of Vladimir, Russia.
Besides writing code Alex manages the overall software development process for all major projects at EBI by coordinating acitivies of developers and testers. He is very persistent and precise when it comes to quality assurance and complex what-if testing scenarios.Alex graduated with honors from Vladimir State University, Russia with a Master Degree in System Engineering.
In 2007 eBusiness Innovations team greeted a young, passionate and very talented software developer Alexey Parfenov. Starting with smaller projects he very soon advanced to writing code for one of the largest software systems that EBI ever built. His capability to absorb a lot of new material, quickly process it and then convert it into a neatly structured code made EBI more agile and stronger.
Alexey is a software engineer to his core. He spends his free time constantly learning new technologies, programming new systems and devices. Periodically EBI team acquires new knowledge and solutions from this vibrant team member. His solutions span from software developed for Symbian platform to mobile web applications that run very fast on iPhone and Android smartphones. His talent and passion is a great asset to the company.
Alexey graduated from the Vladimir State University, Russia with a system engineer degree in Communication Technologies for Intelligent Moving Systems.
Tatyana Avdeyeva joined eBusiness Innovations in 2005 to improve all key business processes at the company from accounting and human resources to quality assurance and customer service. In just several months after taking the helm, she achieved significant cost savings in many business processes, improved employees' morale and responsibility, created a more transparent work accountability and tracking system. In 2006 she helped the company to transition to open source software systems on workstations, servers and routers. As the result of this transition, EBI was one of the first companies in the city to completely run its operations on non-Windows computers which proved to be a great progress towards minimizing system downtime and IT troubleshoting and ultimately increasing work productivity.
Despite her 30+ year long carreer Tatyana quickly adopts to new changes in the business. She has amazing people skills that help her to recruit the best professionals for the company. She is a strong advocate of open source software, such as Ubuntu Linux, LibreOffice, which serves as a strong motivator for EBI's team. Her tenure at EBI proved to be a truly indispensible investment.
Tatyana has graduated with a Master Degree from Tula State Pedagogical University, Russia.
The firm exceeded expectations on Cogent Communications' website redesign project. Alex and his team were incredibly responsive throughout the entire process, providing suggestions and insights along the way. Their focused approach was particularly appreciated; we would recommend them to any business, large or small!
Have used EBI on several projects, including a major online registration system, highly specified, with multiple unusual requirement and reports and could not be happier. The developers I worked with took the time to understand the requirements and understood them correctly, thought them through and offered multiple solutions for complex problems considering the specifications and the budget. Throughout the process I was really impressed how the additional changes were handled as I would always receive intelligent feedback on what can and cannot be added and what would conflict with the logic of the existing system. Very efficient and to the point, everything works well and whatever fixes were needed were done in a timely and effective manner. Very happy with the results and the professionalism of eBusiness Innovations. Would defiitely work with them again and recommend!
I want to offer my highest recommendation of Alex Avdeyev and his development team. Our vision for BMEplanet – a global consortium of over 270 universities, corporations, governments, and non-profits–was a Web 2.0 portal offering a unique set of tools that would accelerate education, research, and innovation in biomedical engineering. Alex and his team impressed in how quickly and fully they grasped our problem and objectives, the domain of biomedical engineering, and the interests of the varied stakeholders for our website. They made excellent suggestions that greatly enhanced the eventual product, demonstrated a firm grasp of Web 2.0 technologies and capabilities, and worked tirelessly to deliver core functionality on time and on budget. I view Alex and his team as professionals in the best sense of the word: they are always pleasant and positive, take pride in their work, and consistently go above and beyond the call of duty. It has been an absolute pleasure to work with the team
