Read about how Original Software applied our technological knowledge to meet our clients' Software requirements.

More than 400 organisations operating in over 30 countries use Original Software solutions. Current users range from major multi-nationals to small software development shops, encompassing a wide range of industries, sectors and sizes. We are proud of our partnerships with the likes of Unilever, Euronet, Intuit, Pfizer Pharmaceutical (Ireland), HMV, DHL, Coca-Cola, Skandia, HSBC and many others.

In terms of the perfect vendor, I'd much rather have a small contact group. It makes me feel really comfortable working with Original Software that they can answer both the business and technical questions that I might throw at them without having to go through ten people.
