Who we are
We are software engineering professionals. With a proven track record going back over the last 20+ years, we take pride at developing durable and reliable software systems for our clients to help them achieve their goals.
In addition to a background in information technology, engineering or consultancy, our experts have accumulated strong competencies in project management and software development methodologies. These skills are the keys with which we build and deliver advanced software systems that are intuitive, flexible, and reliable.
Quality and openness being at the core of our values and design principles, our solutions are naturally based on Open Standards and Open Source technologies.
Sustainability in software engineering
At Acsone we know software systems always live longer than originally expected. We therefore believe our software must be sustainable in itself: open, interoperable, easy to maintain and extend, and overall a good citizen of your IT portfolio.
We also believe software must sustain your business, not the other way around.
When you invest in a software development or implementation project, you want to make sure the result will bring the expected benefits. You also want to have a future proof solution that preserves your freedom.
We share these objectives with you, and to achieve them we work along a few key values and design principles:
- Open source
- Open Architectures and Open Standards
- Commitment and trust
We take a highly collaborative approach to projects because a sound understanding of our customers’ business and their challenges leads to a shared vision for the best results. We strongly believe that a mutual feedback loop between IT and business stakeholders during the whole project lifecycle is key to success.
To this end, the initiation phase will allow us to understand the business context and objectives of the project, challenge assumptions, and select and recommend the adequate technical solutions. During project execution, we favour agile methods which integrate business stakeholder into the project team and encourage frequent feedback.
At Acsone we believe that working with open source technologies brings direct benefits to our customers in a variety of domains. Cost savings often come to mind as a reason to select open source. While it is true that modern open source solutions are extremely cost effective compared to proprietary alternatives, we think freedom and quality benefits are even more important.
Open source software often features superior technical architectures, which derive from the very need for successful open source components to be highly modular. Providing excellent implementation of industry standards, open source libraries and tools provide robust foundations for our projects.
Freedom is at the heart of open source. With access to the source code, you have full control, should you desire to work in another way. Source code is therefore an integral part of our deliverables.
We want you to continue working with us after the first project because we deliver quality, not because you are locked-in with our solution.
Open Architectures and Open Standards
Source code is the ultimate freedom. To leverage it however, you need adequate skills that you may not want to acquire or source. So we also enable your freedom through open architectures and open standards.
Data you produce are extremely valuable and must therefore be readily available for direct use, transformation or reuse in other systems. To enable this, we strive to create architectures that are interoperable and easy to integrate in your information systems landscape. Featuring standard-based interfaces and data formats, the systems we build for you will be good citizens and cooperate nicely with your other applications.
In accordance with our strong belief in delivering consistently high quality results in every engagement, Acsone is certified ISO 9001-2008. This important certification is the internationally recognized and respected standard for the quality management system of organizations in accordance with the International Standards Organization (ISO). It is the basis of our continuous improvement practices. Our team applies certified processes and industry best practices to every project to ensure our customers benefit from the long-term value and return on investment that high quality work delivers.
Commitment and trust
We are proud to commit on results. After the project initiation phase, when the objectives and constraints are clear, we are more than happy to commit on results. So the quality you expect comes without budgetary and planning surprises.
We wish you a pleasant visit of our website
