What a journey Quarphix has been.
It all started in 2001 when 4 IT students at Midrand University (now Pearson Institute) got together to establish a Web Development company. Google had started 3 years prior and gained much traction and so we wanted to jump on the internet bandwagon as quickly as possible.
Nonetheless, that web development dream was short lived. The company struggled to secure enough business to stay afloat. Thus in 2002, all the partners pursued other interests, which included completing their degrees and later as employees of big corporations.
7 years later (2009), Lehlohonolo and Trevor decided to revive the company on a fulltime basis, while the other 2 partners preferred to remain in their jobs. At this point the company assumed Software Development as the core service. This quickly gained traction as both partners brought with them a deep understanding of what the market was after. Between 2009 and 2014, we secured large accounts with Telecommunications, Financial Services companies and government, amongst others.
During this period, due to the exceptional delivery of the team, many of our clients prompted an expansion into other areas of Software Development Lifecycle in order to receive an end-to-end offering from Quarphix. We duly obliged and expanded our offering into Software Testing, Training, Change Management and Enterprise Architecture. With our pulse on the ground, we quickly sourced the right level of capacity from all over South Africa in a quest to support our clients’ needs.
This expansion continued and has seen us accessing international markets and attracting world-class resources alike. Today we boast a wide, yet specialized, array of services that also include Mixed Reality, Cyber Security and Robotics Process Automation capabilities.
In the next 5 – 10 years, Quarphix is looking into delving deeper into the Cyber Security and Data Analytics clusters to cater for a more digital world we believe we are only at the infancy of.
Reach far beyond the ordinary…
