Our Passion for Software Engineering
We, too, started small. We started by aiding friends and family with just one issue. The answer was a whole system. We grew addicted to fixing additional issues and making people’s lives easier and simpler.
Customers still engage us after 20 years. We’ve progressed through simpler Y2K and internet dial-up to assist our customers stay relevant in business.
Being small is never an excuse for us
Yes, we’re small – a witty customer once remarked that his company’s pantry team is larger than we are.
Though small, we have a big-system outlook. We take on projects of any size and complexity, utilizing best-fit software development methodologies, best suited to the needs of our clients. Our documentations meets our customers stringent internal approval procedures.
To be clear, we know that building software isn’t about delivering swanky paperwork. The software solutions we deliver are for such mission-critical functions like enterprise integration, retail & institutional payments, on-boarding, credit & risk assessment, and the digitalisation of business processes.
Why we should matter to you?
The bleeding edge of technology. Businesses must utilize technology to be competitive. But keeping abreast to remain relevant is expensive – both for the businesses we serve and for us. For the past 20 years, we’ve had to retool our processes and technology stack twice, with significant loss of productivity in the interim.
The year 2020 has been one such event, where we paid the dues so that we remain relevant for the longer term. We are sure, for your business, it has also been a watershed year. Maybe not knowing us may be of some concern to you. We want to dispel that.
