Smile wins the Extending eZ Award !


At the eZ Conference 2017 held from 6 to 8 June, Smile won the Extending eZ Award.

Smile was rewarded for its work on the following three bundles (on the website ):

  • smile/ezee-sectionformfield-bundle
  • smile/ezee-phoneformfield-bundle
  • smile/ezee-countryformfield-bundle

In 2016, eZ Systems brought out its new solution called eZ Platform following on from eZ Publish, this time with full techno Symfony. 

Emmanuel Drouet, Technical Project Manager at Smile, talked about this new solution: "I was looking forward to examining this new version and putting forward new features. Today, Smile is working daily on this solution, a must-have in technical and sales terms."

Emmanuel was also nominated in 2016 at the eZ conference in Paris for his "Website factory" feature.

This year, he was nominated for:                                 

  • his double authentication eZTFABundle
  • all his eZ work (generation bundles for fieldtype, Cron management, CDN, etc.)
  • his bundles to extend a feature from the eZ Platform-EE solution (corporate version)


Last but not least, Smile was also nominated best partner of the year.


Smile is also working on eZ Platform Entreprise Edition, creating content via an interface where contributors can drag and drop their blocks of content to various zones on the page. These blocks of content help to create forms with all sorts of fields such as text zones, boxes to be ticked and radio buttons on a web page. Emmanuel has expanded this special feature with three new field types to:

  • delineate fields in the form
  • enter a telephone number
  • select a country

"I am proud of producing these bundles for the eZ Platform solution, being nominated for the second year running and seeing Smile rewarded because of my work."
