Zanbow is a custom software development company

Based in Southern Maine, we service clients throughout the US, including Maine, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, and California

Zanbow specializes in database backed web applications. Our preference is python using the Django framework, but we also do a lot of work with Java and Google app engine. If you are looking for something web based, we can most likely do it for you. We have been developing web applications for over 10 years.

Zanbow also develops iPhone and iPad applications, and soon we will be doing Android apps as well.

We also have experience building and maintaining e-commerce sites. We are very fluent with the PCI requirements and Fraud mitigation needed when accepting credit card orders online.

We have also worked on applications that have sent millions of emails a month, and what it takes to make sure that those emails get delivered correctly and not blocked by SPAM filters. SPF records, Sender Id, Domain Keys/ DKIM, white lists, suppression lists, email bounces, if you don't know what any of that means, don't worry, we do.
