Who We Are

Founded in 2008, Software Ops is a team of experienced professionals. Our team includes skilled architects, engineers, and designers. We specialize in creating mobile platforms that support native Android and iOS applications, as well as the back end cloud systems necessary to make them fully functional. We maintain our cutting edge knowledge of the fast changing Android and iOS platforms as well as cloud services that support Ruby on Rails cloud app deployment.

Our specialty skills include data encryption, along with secure photo and video systems. Our proprietary apps have been in the Apple App Store since its inception, accumulating over millions of downloads. They have been recognized as Apple Staff Picks, listed in the New and Noteworthy section, and have consistently ranked in the top 50 in their categories.

Our Approach

Our agile approach to development gives us the flexibility necessary to create truly unique solutions. During development, you will see scheduled progress and have the opportunity to provide input. Our practices emphasize collaboration and continued evaluation, because we believe that developing a great app begins with building a great relationship. 

Our Offer

We bring mobile app systems to market for our clients. Your business might require an app as part of your growth strategy. That current app requires additional features and functionality, or perhaps you have an idea for the next greatest app. Whatever the case, we work with you and your team to determine exactly what is needed and where in the product lifecycle we should step in. One of the keys to creating a successful mobile app is understanding your business objectives and identifying the appropriate strategy up-front to achieve those objectives. With Software Ops’ services, we make this easier than ever to define your goals and objectives.

Uncommon Knowledge

Because of our knowledge and experience we offer much more than development services, we offer uncommon knowledge of how to blend the functionality of mobile systems with our technical capability and market knowledge to bring to life useful, functioning systems that exceed the demands of “mobile first” or “mobile expansion” strategies.  
Our thorough understanding of the mobile marketplace allows us to provide leadership where its needed. In the end you’ll have a product that is both functional and elegant.
