Our Story

We worked for many years trying to help customers build solutions for their data collection and management needs. We could always see the vision, but that usually meant trying to fit a square peg into a round hole… we would have to patch together custom code on top of existing solutions, and to us that was never right.

So we decided in 2014 that enough was enough, and set out on a journey to build a platform that would work like we had wanted all those other solutions to work. We wanted elegance and simplicity, nothing overengineered or full of bells and whistles that no one would ever use. We wanted ease of use and a quick ramp up for all levels of technologists.

Out of this vision was born our data management platform, and the highly praised solutions that live within it. Our customers are thrilled and asking for more, and we can’t wait to see what’s around the corner.

Focus on Business

While we are technologists with many years building software solutions, we know that no technology will be successful unless we have first understood how the business works.

Simplicity in Design

It’s not enough to just make something that works. We want to make things that work well, solve problems and are simple and elegant.

Solution Seekers

Our solutions are always inspired by real-world problems that we observe and investigate with our customers by our side. We want to fix things that are critical to our customers’ success.

Unparalleled Support

We are beside you 100% of the way, from on-boarding through to sustainment. We provide simple, quick support tools so you can easily track and manage your requests.
