Portuguese David Simões, the future founder of Sound Good Agency, moved to Brno and started working at Ents development agency. Already a year later, he started leading the e-commerce department, focusing on Shopify solutions.
We were the first (and still the only) developers in the Czech Republic and Slovakia to receive the Shopify Experts certification. Most businesses are only Shopify partners. Anyone who signs up for the Shopify Partner Program can become one. Shopify Experts certification is only awarded to agencies that have been individually vetted directly by Shopify.
From a small e-commerce department, it became the biggest source of revenue for the entire Ents company. By mutual agreement, David Simões bought out this department and created Sound Good Agency as an independent development company specializing purely in Shopify.
Furthermore, we managed to get 80+ ratings with an average of 5/5 and create an integration with Fakturoid after the announcement of the EET Act. In addition, we also became one of the few Shopify Experts worldwide with access to the Shopify Hosted Payment SDK, which in turn allowed us to create integrations with GoPay and ComGate .
Over the past years, we managed to work not only for more than a hundred e-commerce companies from all over the world, but also for well-known local brands such as Mana, Okay.cz, Ledvance, ETA or GoPay.
This year also saw a moment when David had to decide between family and business. Due to illness in the family, he decided to withdraw from the business and sell the agency to two colleagues, Robin Navrátil and Joao Antunes.
David decided to exercise the buyback option and again acquired a 30% stake in the agency.
