25+ Years of Existence in the Industry

We have been in web development since 1999. We started our operation mainly with web development using PHP/HTML/Javascript.

We are now into web-based solutions, Blockchain Development & Digital Transformation solutions, especially for small to medium-sized companies. We have never been big, but we were always stable; because of the solid technical & ethical base.

Proper Quality Engg and Quality Assurance

Your software or any product will fail if it fails to provide VALUE to its customers. And VALUE STREAM is the process required to convert a business hypothesis into a technology-enabled service that delivers value to the customer. To maximise the value, we always define a particular set of Quality Engg & QA processes for every project covering the complete SDLC process.

'Built-In Quality' - Your Key to Success

You can not make an iPhone in a factory that manufactures MI phones. iPhone requires separate manufacturing and quality engineering processes. In the same way, any software application with higher built-in quality is without proper Quality Engineering & QA processes. We deliver value, not just a bundle of code files. It has been possible by practising LEAN Software Development Principles, Toyota 5S, Agile Methodology, Scrum, DevOps, OpenAI, and more.

QA Team Takes the Accountiblity for Quality

Almost all developers write lousy code if there is a no definite QA Engineering & QA support processes. And eventually, you have to throw away all those bad codes in future. As a solution, you need a QA team. But setting up your own QA Team is too costly and cumbersome and our dedicated QA team will take this responsibility at a very reasonable cost.
