Roots Software


Roots Software was founded in December 1994 by a couple of enthusiastic Smalltalk experts, including Erik Dehaen, currently Managing Director of the company. At the start, Roots positioned itself in the market with the tagline Robust Object Oriented Technology Solutions, an acronym with a wink to the company’s name. As the company name suggests, the founding fathers evangelised the advantages and benefits of Object-Oriented technology. Since then, Roots Software has surfed on the waves of emerging technologies, with an eye on customers’ business needs. Our mission is plain simple: as a trusted technology partner (for best-of-breed open standards / open source offerings) we make sure that today’s and tomorrow’s technology (no matter how fast it moves) becomes an opportunity for your business, not a challenge. Our agile style will show you in no time that we do what we say and say what we do: we will enlighten you through conversations and a proof-of-concept. We listen and respond: straight talk, candid, direct. Our co-creative approach will be mutually beneficial and based on honest and professional commitment to integrity, excellence, and fair compensation: when your business grows, ours will grow with you. Our focus is on developing and maintaining relationships rather than just executing transactions. And we are committed to doing what’s right, without exception. Recent successes: • 2012: Supply Chain Award • 2013: Sapa maintenance contract • 2014: delivery of the new Car-Pass platform Spin-offs: • Provideor (Business Intelligence) • Selas (System & Process Optimization)
