The big boxes keep raising the bar. Small businesses need to keep up.
The government imposed shutdowns are impacting those that can't do business seamlessly online.

On your own platform, you never have to replatform. And you can sell to your customers the way they want to be sold to. Flex is basically a SaaS platform in a box, that can be customized, not just modified!
And you own it so there is no more waiting to add new features to out pace the competition.
Flex creates opportunities to sell smarter, like the big box marketplaces do, so you can get the right products in front of the right people.
What will change the game for you? How do we get all of your data in one place? This is the plan to sell more.
What this looks like: A free consultation, then a bespoke planning sequence
Next is the build out, using Flex & customizing only where necessary. A basic, functional store can be deployed in a day.
What this looks like: The dev teams builds, while you work with the design time to build the perfect site.
Typical Timeframe: 2-12 weeks depending on what you want
Once you are live, get comfortable with the advantages. Then take it to the limits with one of our Pro Plans.
What this looks like: Enjoy your new found freedom and change it when it makes your customer’s experience better.
Flex is a way to gain control of your store and give your customers the best experience possible without sacrifice.
Flex allows you to quickly put up a bespoke, custom e-commerce site and support the unique aspects of your business, without the custom price tag.
At the end of the day you can own your own store, run it anywhere, and receive lifetime updates.
We believe that flexibility is money in e-commerce to get a leg up over the competion, and you should only pay for what you need and use. Lifetime updates, while free, require a developer or a Pro Plan to apply the updates.
Flex is owned and maintained by Near Apogee, an e-commerce agency with a pedigree in startups, marketplaces, and enterprise applications.
You don't need custom, unless you are in 0.1% of our customers. (Trust us... We have been building custom, one-offs for the past decade.)
We think that is the right solution for some, but not all businesses. However we can open the Flex API and deploy your headless application without restrictions.
Infrastructure and maintenance.
Both combined are less than SaaS platform costs, in most cases.
At numbers that make sense to leave platforms.
Fixed base package. Fixed add-on features. Project based design, customizations, and imports.
To modify and grow as you please.
We find platforms restrictive for customers desiring this tier of store. If you are coming to us you don't want artificial rules holding you back.
But it is more cost effective. We offer pay over time options. You do have to pay for all custom design and development up front. You can get the source code after your payment plan is complete.
We make resilient stores that can be live anywhere. We can set you up with a site that fails over to another instance or even another cloud (infrastucture).
Yes, for non-profits.
And for our development cohorts.
We do these cohorts on occasion to improve sections of our codebase. You get a store with a discount and we get to improve our code! Contact us to find out more.
