How it all Started

Since 2009 Iversoft had been a mobile-first technology leader. From building the first Solitaire game available on iOS to mobile apps for superstars like Michael Bublé and Billy Talent to some of the first digital tradeshow kiosks for Audi to now – we have always been a mobile-first technology leader.

Today, Iversoft focuses on partnering with organizations to solve the most daunting business and customer engagement challenges with data-driven strategy and cutting-edge technology. Modern businesses can reach clients, excite customers, offer services and grow their business faster than ever, from anywhere – but only if their technology and infrastructure are built to support it. Iversoft is the partner of choice for companies that want to streamline, mobilize and grow their business.

What Defines Us

  1. 1.

    Transparency

    Many companies claim to be transparent — it’s easy to say. But you can just keep reading our website to see that we live it. Between our Services page and FAQ, we’ve tried to anticipate your questions and provide straightforward answers.

    We do this because we want to help you find the right solution, whether or not it’s us. If you get in touch, we’ll  even let you know if we think your problem can be solved without going custom. But if you do work with us, you can be sure you’ll always get our honest answers, not what we think you want to hear.

  2. 2.

    Integrity

    In competitive industries like development, your reputation is everything. We’ve stayed in business for so many years because we deliver on our promises.

    But, we don’t pretend to be perfect. Even with a brilliant team like ours, no one can predict every possible outcome. If surprises happen, we don’t hide it. We immediately let you know exactly what’s happening so we can work together to respond quickly. We believe in doing the right thing, especially when it isn’t the easy thing.

  3. 3.

    Passion

    The best products are created by people who get excited about innovation and care about what they do. We bring this passion to your projects in a few different ways.

    First, we hire smart, creative people and give them the space to contribute their ideas. We firmly believe that a good idea can come from anywhere.

    Second, we take on complex projects that push the boundaries of what’s possible. We don’t repackage old solutions — we build cutting-edge digital products.

    Finally, we partner with other passionate people we trust to deliver unique, more comprehensive services.

  4. 4.

    Excellence

    “Good enough” isn’t in our vocabulary. We’ve meticulously designed our processes around research and strategy, enabling us to make informed, data-driven decisions.

    Spending time on research upfront also saves us time in the long-run. Instead of wasting precious time on trial and error, we simply execute on a well thought out plan. By the time we start coding, we completely understand your problem, your company, your design preferences, and most importantly, the opportunities we can take advantage of to make your project stand out.

We are always growing our team
