As an open-source project, Catalyst is not owned by any single company, but instead follows an open, community-driven development process. Support, development, and consultancy services available from multiple vendors in the UK and overseas. At OpusVL we have a great deal of experience with Catalyst, especially in the areas of eCommerce and ERP integration. Our developers are contributors to the Catalyst open-source project, and regularly give talks about this technology at conferences and user groups.
