We focus on a long-term benefit
We change a website visitor into its loyal customer, which isn’t possible without fully understanding the nature of the business. For every project, we constantly monitor its success and check if it fulfils its business goals. And when we can see some space for improvement, we don’t hesitate to start work again.
During the 20 years on the market we have learned a lot
While the fashion trends in the area of website design and e-business come and go, we still stick to 2 things – our own intuition and the needs of the client and its customers. Maybe just the experience with long-term successful websites is the thing which makes us different form the competitors.
All projects are created in house
We do not rely only on external suppliers. That enables us to solve each project comprehensively, from the business viewpoint and the marketing viewpoint as well as from the IT viewpoint. In house development also has another advantage – we can guarantee 100% quality and keeping all client deadlines.
We will give you Edee - CMS and an e-commerce platform used by successful companies
Today, nobody asks whether or not one has a website with a CMS or an e-shop with an e-commerce system. The question is whether or not one should have an open source tool for managing their website or e-shop. We can see an unambiguous advantage in an internally developed, stable and reliable tool. We have built hundreds of websites on it and you can easily administer your website with it, too.
We can make websites made-to-measure
Do you need us to create an e-shop with thousands of items? Do you have an idea how to use NFC cards for your business? Do you want to unite a crowd of employees using a friendly intranet? We would love to listen to your ideas and suggest a solution which would fit your business like a glove.
We have a lot of experience with connecting websites with different accounting, information and loyalty systems and data sources
We have built our solutions on Java technology which enables us to manage the high demands connected with the realization of extensive and demanding projects, especially in the area of performance, stability, scalability and safety.
We specialize in the united administration of more websites, their clones or mutations
Among our clients, there are many companies, which operate multiple websites at the same time. Thanks to our solution their editors can update several websites at the same time or administer many language versions using one tool.
Our internal administrators for server and web administration reply within 30 minutes
The well-configured processes in company and sophisticated project management enable us to react to every request simply immediately. Whatever happens to your website, we will never let you down.
We have more than 40 awards from prestigious competitions IEA or WEBTOP100 on the shelf
Every such award warms our hearts and motivates the whole team for further work. We accept the praise, but also expert criticism. We are thankful for it, because it’s this criticism that moves us forward. That’s why we cooperate with organizations like e.g. Association.BIZ, which gathers leading web agencies from the whole Czech Republic.
We have much more ready for you
A part of the FG Forrest group is the well-known company eMerite, focused on web analysis. Other companies with FG holdings include the post-production studio, Flamesite, and More is More, who specialize in virtual reality (VR) and extended reality (XR). And they are also ready to help you.
We prefer quality and look for lifetime partners
Which type of clients do we have long-term cooperation with? They are especially the people we understand, not only professionally, but also on the human level. That might be the reason why most clients stay with us for such a long time. The cooperation with inspirational people is simply fun for us and that must be visible in the final solution.

How we work
Would you like to know how we work or whether our style would match your own? Let’s use a simple the relatively simple example of a conversion button to illustrate. Before your customer clicks on the button, we…
1. Map the Terrain
We start every project with a proper analysis of the market, the client and the client’s customer base. We will want to know everything about your business: customer needs, habits, behavior, interests, conventions, etc. Based on that knowledge, we select an appropriate text for the button, e.g., “Order”, “Register” or “Send an Inquiry”.
2. Design the Look
Afterwards, we continue by designing all the components of the web, including the conversion button. By the way, this example has special significance. If there is something the user shouldn’t miss on the website, it is this button. That’s why we deal with the color, size, shape and location of the button to ensure as many users as possible click on it.
3. Program the Web
When we approve the design, the most demanding phase of the whole process arrives. The website must be programmed, thoroughly tested, and usually other changes as the idea continues to develop. In order to accomplish these tasks, we employ the latest technologies and tap the experience of the best developers. Programming a conversion button isn’t really the challenge; it is just one small example of a much larger and more complicated process.
4. Test Functionality
When everything is ready, a final test is done. We verify that the new element or website will work on all browsers and devices. We select and test sample users and conditions that simulate how real users will react to the web. When the testing shows that the conversion button is displayed incorrectly in some browser, we are able to make corrections before the launch.
5. Supervise the Operation
When the website goes live, our work is not done. It is just the beginning. We constantly work to ensure your website is safe and functioning perfectly. If necessary, we can take action within several minutes to correct any issue, and our service team works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Even a conversion button with a CTR of 20 % would serve no purpose if the payment gateway stops working. Therefore, we are always available to help keep things running smoothly.
6. Measures and Improve
Once the website is on-line, we constantly monitor and research its performance. In this case, we would observe how users use the button, whether they click on it or next to it, what percentage of users click on it, etc. Based on that information, we plan other changes, partial functions and components. Our primary tools for this research include: Monkey Tracker, Google Analytics and others.
We rely on
The foundation of our success comes from our strong development team who created our flagship proprietary content management system, Edee CMS. This platform provides us the freedom, stability and space to develop new ideas and concepts that stem from our employees or clients. Our internal team also uses automated penetration and stress tests to help ensure that websites created by our company are safe and secure.
We are used to administering extensive projects with multiple websites connected to other systems (CRM, ERP, DMS). We are able to easily create and reliably administer whole families of interconnected websites. You can be sure that very few companies have that ability.
High Quality Content
A website without content is like a song without a melody or a detective story without a plot. It doesn’t work. When creating websites, we don’t think like IT specialists. We think more holistically, connecting the whole process to activities like copywriting, SEO, content strategy, e-mail marketing, etc. Our goal is to find the balance where form and the content come together in harmony.
Round-the-clock technical support and administration of our servers with a common guarantee of 99.9% availability is a matter of course for us. We have built such a reputation in this area that our customers ask us to consultant and coordinate their own extensive projects.
It wouldn’t be possible without them. Each Forrest is original and is a source of specific experience that is poured into one great reservoir of Forrest know-how. Behind every project, you find a lot of life stories, lessons, victories and, of course, failures. We continue to learn, grow, and improve everyday. That experience, motivation, and drive is poured into every new project.
20 Years of Experience
From a company started in the town of Hronov in a garage where we produced multimedia CDs, to a well-established internet agency with over 70 employees in Prague, Náchod and Hradec Králové. That is our true success.
