The existing Matchpint website was developed in PHP, so using Symfony allowed our developers to reuse important parts of the code and giving us a firm basis tos build on. There was a huge selection of components we were able to reuse while adding extra security measure and improving the performance.
We also developed a custom CRM based on the open-source OroCRM Symfony project which allowed them to automate their largely manual invoicing and customer management system to an automated one.
Symfony is used by internet giants such as Spotify, Yahoo, BBC - and us. It's also the basis of well known web projects such as Drupal and Laravel. Symfony allows you to develop with as many, or as few, components as you want, so there's space for it in pretty much any PHP project.
Symfony 3 answers the needs of the largest web projects by offering three core development features: service-oriented architecture for greater scalability and easier continuous testing; optimal performances with a Varnish-compatible HTTP caching system; and high-level security, automatically protecting against standard attacks.
Symfony is backed by an active and passionate development community of over 300,000 developers from more than 120 countries. This support allows it to constantly improve, giving your web application all the technical guidance it needs.
