About Us

The CodeNOW story

We love completing difficult tasks, so you don’t have to.

Companies are looking for a solution to deliver business value through software innovation.

We made CodeNOW to avoid casual pitfalls in cloud-native development and operations. It stands on a solid foundation of well established open-source technologies.

You can invest hundreds of workdays to build your technology stack, or you can use CodeNOW off the shelf, with no risks – as a Service.
We have a ready-made solution for you so to focus your team and yourself on core business improvements.

Our roots

We laid the first foundations of our software factory following many large projects for European clients and the Czech branch of Société Genéralé – Komerční banka. Its ambition was to fundamentally change the delivery of systems for its clients and employees. Stratox has built the first successful development platform, which our team still develops and manages to this day.

We realized that many global companies would want to take the same digital opportunities. Most companies don’t consider software development as their primary business. They want to produce successful products for their clients. We can offer them the software factory they need.

Société Générale in the Czech republic comes most significant transformation activity in its history. Roots of the CodeNOW were made.

Partnership with the global distributor of parts and services in the automotive industry Intercars S.A. has brought us the experience to scale the product at a world-class level. Using CodeNOW, Intercars has built an open ecosystem of software vendors who create a new business line – selling products and services directly to the end customers.

We won the tender at Teléfonica O2. They selected CodeNOW to be the development and operational platform for services in the IoT segment and Mobile Virtual Network Operators.

2019

2020

We started the partnership with the technological and logistics provider Packeta. They are using CodeNOW as a part of their global expansion for the development and management of cloud-native applications. Packeta currently operates in 33 countries with 100,000 distribution places, and it is still rapidly growing.

CodeNOW is developed only in CodeNOW. That’s how much we are confident about our product. Thanks to that, our whole team knows CodeNOW to the last bit, and it also brings better quality control.

We are preparing an expansion to the global market.
