Below is our recent interview with Brian Dainis, CEO at Curotec:
Q: Brian, tell us something more about Curotec and its history?
A: Curotec was founded in 2010 on the idea of success. Not so much Curotec’s success, although that has been the case, but on the success of the client’s that we work with. You see, we understand that technology is really about the people who need and use it. It’s about solving problems for the users in an organization or on a website. People are the central, most important component of business. That philosophy permeates everything we do, from how we respect our team to how we work with and listen to our clients.
Q: Tell us more about your services?
A: Curotec offers a wide range of services including software, web, and mobile development, security and support services, graphic design, and a full suite of digital marketing support and offerings. Certainly, there are lots of other companies that do these same things, but what is unique about Curotec is the way we approach an engagement. Any solution we build is about two entities – the business needing the solution, and the user who must interface with it. Sometimes, like with a mobile or web-based application, the interface is with another person looking to accomplish a task. Other times, that interface is something another developer might use to leverage data from a business, like in the case of an API. It’s true that nearly anyone can build these solutions, but only Curotec builds high quality solutions that are customer- and user-centric, from our processes to our finished product.

Q: What is a progressive web application?
A: We strive to stay at the forefront of technology that is relevant to our customers, and progressive web application are one of those things. A progressive web application is like the best of all worlds – it’s a mobile experience that doesn’t require a heavy application to be installed, taking up space on your phone or tablet. Yet at the same time, it’s more feature rich than a mobile-optimized website. It loads quickly. And to top it all off it works whether you are online or off – so even if you have a spotty connection, like at a conference or while visiting a client, you’ll still be able to use the application.
Because of these features, it really improves the customer experience, which is a very good things since mobile users have very little patience with slow mobile apps. In fact, 53% of users will abandon a site that doesn’t load in 3 seconds or less. So, it’s important to have a rich user experience that is also fast and reliable. There aren’t a lot of companies with experience in progressive web applications at the moment, so Curotec is really leading the way in this area.
Q: Could you share some success stories with us?
A: We’ve had a number of them, including some pretty big awards. However, our biggest successes, as I said above, are in what we do for our clients. For instance, we built out a multi-lingual website for Joie International. They make infant and toddler products and have customers all over the world. It was important for them to be able to communicate the value they provide in an easy, accessible way for their customers, no matter what language they speak. So, we built for them a custom content management system that allowed the different regions to control their own content, making them relevant to their audience no matter where they are.

Q: What can we expect from Curotec in the future?
A: The future for Curotec looks a lot like the past, in that we’ll continue to learn and grow so that we can provide our customers with the tech solutions they need to solve business problems. We’ll continue to evaluate new technologies as they become available and assess them for their viability and relevance. And we’ll continue to hire the best to fulfill Curotec’s promise to build solutions that answer key business problems while remaining user-centric.Activate Social Media:
