It's not a secret that clients prefer to work with Magento Certified Developers, it provides them a feeling of sustainability and high quality. During these years, we hadn't this crucial argument, so only our good name worked for us ;) Also, this certification will simplify our hiring process and we can rely on the certification results now too.
