SwiftCloud started as a small agency, and so we built stuff real clients needed.
That’s it. That’s our superhero origin story.
From 2012 to 2015 we developed various apps for various clients with tens of thousands of lines of code doing things like a custom pharmaceutical search engine and ordering system for pharmacies (and used in part by the U.S. DEA to track CII drugs like methedone), movie industry specific payroll with complex rules for even child actors and overnight shifts, and over 200 other projects, often involving WordPress.
Starting in 2014 we combined many projects into one suite called SwiftCloud.IO – it was a great concept, but created a frankenstein of code.
In December 2017 we started a ground-up rewrite of everything, carefully building a system that could support a billion contacts spanning hundreds of servers with mission-critical enterprise-grade system engineering. This is SwiftCloud.AI, and while we’ve made substantial progress, we are just getting started.
Everything we’ve created wasn’t hashed over by committee, hoping there’s a real world need – we needed something, and for whatever reason didn’t want the off-the-shelf solutions. As we grow, we are finding we have a different – better – view of how the web should be.
We believe in you, and that we are not important. Business software should be like running water or electricity (in the US*, where this is something we “take for granted”). Like movie special effects, the better we do our job, the less you notice it.
We don’t sell software.
We sell improvement
to your business.
Humans are harder to change than software, and so the software should be easy to use, conform to your needs, and get the job done in as few clicks and with as little training as possible.
As of 2019, we still do semi-custom business software as long as it’s B2B, and we can create a license that makes sense for both parties. We focus on real-world solutions.
* We at SwiftCloud believe everyone on the planet should have reliable, consistent electricity and running water. As I (Roger, the CEO) write this (from the U.S.) definitely appreciate the hard work our infrastructure professionals devote, so “take it for granted” is in quotes because we’re blessed to not really think about it 99.999% of the time.
