The Codesyne Story
2001 - Present Day

The evolution of Codesyne Inc. began January 1, 2001, as Aholattafun, and was to produce original animation programming and act as a third party production house for larger animation companies on a contract basis. Located in Cambridge, Ontario, in 2003, Aholattafun expanded it's service offerings to include commercial design, print and website development and added 'Creative Solutions' to the company name.


As the internet grew and diversified, so too did commercial demand as Aholattafun Creative Solutions shifted it's focus to online services only of Web Development, Web Design, Hosting, Search Engine Optimization and Social Networking. By 2010 the Internet was a business requirement to not only market and advertise your product or service but to also propel the sales process. Businesses were also looking to integrate internal tasks and work flow into there online process as well. It was this market shift and ten years of listening to consumer's needs that ModuleBlocks was born


In October of 2012, Aholattafun Creative Solutions expanded from a service company to include product offering, and spent 2013 researching and developing the Content Management System - Integration Platform (CRM-IP) of 'ModuleBlocks: Business Applications'. A fresh perspective and new product needed a new company name Codesyne Inc.


Codesyne continues to evolve in 2016 by focusing the service offerings to custom development and content creation and leveraging the success and learnings of ModuleBlocks with such companies as Rockwell Automation and Maple Leaf Foods in to the next step of development and production of ModuleBlocks 2.0.
