Swift Software Inc
Swift Software is an innovative developer of Task-Centric Team Management and Workflow software for the enterprise.
The first version of JobTraQ®, Swift Software’s flagship task management software product, was developed in 2001 to fulfill an internal efficiency need identified by our parent company, a regional IT services and consulting firm. The resulting technology empowered half a decade of 50% annual growth in top line sales and productivity without a parallel growth in staff size or administrative overhead. The ability to track every task through to effective delivery differentiated the company, and soon clients were asking for access to this increasingly powerful task-centric solution. The firm was able to quickly implement agile work management solutions using this growing set of metadata driven capabilities and a strong understanding of the problems experienced by operational teams across numerous industries, and those abilities soon coalesced into what is today JobTraQ and the team around it.
Swift Software, Inc was organically spun off in late hours of 2003 by a core team who both invested in and focused on JobTraQ with a vision to evolve it from an internal tool into a world-class product meant to empower business and process analysts to develop complete task management and workflow solutions without writing a single line of code. Swift invested two years of additional R&D into the product, and added a new web services API, a highly intuitive interface, and numerous other enhancements targeted at enterprise needs. Significant bootstrap financing came through early implementations and related services, with early sales funding the acceleration of R&D. In January of 2006, Swift Software secured a first round of private funding to further accelerate the development of JobTraQ and to fuel marketing and sales. In 2007, the firm’s license sales doubled as JobTraQ began to establish itself as a credible alternative for the enterprise, especially when compared to the long implementation cycles of existing task management and workflow solutions. JobTraQ and the Swift Software team continue to deliver lighter, faster, more agile, and more cost effective solutions than competitors, leading to an increasing number of migrations from other systems since 2008. With our growing track record of successful on-time implementations, rapid delivery of measurable results and ROI, and a long list of satisfied enterprise customers, our success, our team, and our sales have continued their impressive growth year after year.
Clients who have successfully and rapidly deployed our agile solution include NASA, Fifth Third Bank, NIST, TOTAL Oil and Gas, MiSWACO, Constellation Energy, Alterra, the University of Florida, AutoZone, ITT, and many others in the energy, financial services, government, and service sectors. We have managed implementations and trained clients to do their own in countries around the world, from oil refineries in Indonesia to infrastructure project offices in Scotland, and in the U.S. from small accounting firms in California to publicly traded pharmaceutical operations on the Delaware River.
