Founded in Vancouver in 1999, Make Technologies is now a global provider of transformational legacy modernization software and services. And despite steady growth since inception, Make Tech was still able to earn a post on this year's Deloitte & Touche’s Technology Fast 50.
I talked Sarah Hartse of Make Tech following the award. Sarah, who says Make Tech is one of few profitable companies in its industry, is uniquely positioned for growth. "We intend to grow and continually innovate, and work with our clients to ensure that their needs are met," Sarah states. "Market share, partners, and employee base are our focuses. "
A trusted brand in enterprise legacy modernization, Make Tech's clients include numerous Fortune 500 companies, and Sarah believes this is because of Make Tech's strength: "Make Technologies [has a] unique ability to ensure that the technology supporting the business is aligned to the undocumented user experiences, business processes, and work flow requirements." This, on top of innovative and agile solutions that reduce costs and increase productivity.
"Modernizing critical legacy applications is hard," Sarah explains. "To realize lasting benefits, you simply cannot afford to take the easy route. Make Technologies understands that companies have invested a lot of money where applications have to align with business needs to gain a competitive edge. Additionally," she adds, "companies need to focus on their core competency and not be in the business of maintaining custom code. Make Technologies provides these companies the needed assurance of project success, especially when it affects their critical applications and to ensure that their application modernizations strategy to provide short term gain and long term value."
