Cross Platform Development

Writing portable, reusable and maintainable Software

Development of software is often a rather big investment for a company. The cost of software maintenance however, is often forgotten or neglected. Designing software that is portable and reusable is crucial for a project to be future-proof and it gives you the maximum flexibility to adapt quickly to new requirements and needs.

Having worked with Qt and developed Qt for many years, we do have a lot of experience in building portable, modular, reusable and maintainable software. We are specialists in API-design and development of platform abstraction layers.

Whether you want to run your application on cellphones, desktop systems, embedded systems, tablets or industrial devices. We can help you to deploy your applications to more platforms and thereby to reach more users on more devices. We can design and develop solutions in a maximally portable way. This will significantly reduce your development and maintenance cost and allow your team to focus on the business logic.
