About Us


A purely Czech IT consultancy company was founded with a clear focus on management information systems and decision support systems. Our experience with different technologies allows us to compare different tools with each other, to get to know their strengths and weaknesses, and to help our customers to choose the technology that is most suitable for them and their requirements. 
After more than twenty years on our own, in the autumn of 2023 we became part of the SUDOP CIT technology group, one of the largest groups of consulting and IT companies in Central Europe. This partnership is a great opportunity for us to move forward in what we do best. It is also a significant milestone in the history of our company.

MISSION

Our Company's mission is to assist our customers in the development of their companies through the effective use of IT technologies aimed at management and decision support and to provide our employees with sufficient space for their self-realization.

VISION

For our customers we want to be a stable, long-term and reliable partner who guarantees professionalism and top quality of work and who always fulfils its obligations.  We want to be the first choice for our customers, partners and employees.

VALUES

We are aware that the existence of our company and its further development is highly dependent on our ability to cooperate with each other. Although each of us is different, each of us has different abilities, different skills and each of us has slightly different ideas about our self-realization, the basis of our cooperation, on which we all build, is common and based on three basic values:

POLITENESS

RESPECT

RESPONSIBILITY

Our behaviour towards our customers is based on the same values. We believe that they also do not measure our relationship with each other by the degree of unanimity of opinion and agreement on any given issue, because it is clear that we do not (and will not) always agree on everything. Each of us has the right to our own opinion, and we also have the right to make it known, and the ability to resolve situations in accordance with the above values will come into play precisely at those moments when different opinions are pitted against each other. It is in these situations that it becomes clear whether the values of politeness, respect and responsibility are not just empty concepts, but whether they are indeed actively and consciously applied corporate values. That is why we have been working successfully with the vast majority of our customers for many years.
