Help support a company from its inception, and position them techcnially to handle enormous customer growth


A fast, quality and reliable solution custom built by Ephibian, and an ongoing strong technology partnership



Decimal is an online 401(k) provider that needed a bullet-proof, highly scalable database-backed Web site to accommodate rapid growth. Decimal’s market niche is providing small businesses and individual-owned businesses with simple and convenient 401(k) benefit services.  The solution had to be easy to use, yet powerful and scalable to millions of potential businesses.

Not only that, but they needed to have their initial offering built under an extremely tight deadline. With its track record of delivering quality under tight deadlines, Ephibian was deemed as Decimal’s best choice.
