2000-2012: Before Computools became Computools

The brand was founded in 2000 by Roger Marion, a network technologies and software specialist. At that time, the company collaborated with outstanding brands such as BMC Software and Lavalys as a product development partner.

Initially, the Computools focused on developing products, encompassing both hardware and software aspects.However, with changing trends in technology and market dynamics, the Computools brand was reoriented. We decided to become a service company with a deep understanding of the hardware, which remains a unique competitive advantage till now. We continuously nurture deep programming knowledge and a profound understanding of what happens “under the hood” of technical solutions.

Our early partnership with BMC Software and Lavalys exposed us early on to international markets and global innovation, setting the foundation of professionalism and customer care that define the company today and influence future strategy.

2013: Inception and Beginnings

In the search of its own path, Computools started as a product company, but the ideas the founders tried to implement were perhaps ahead of their time. We shifted our strategic positioning to services. From that point on, rapid growth began. By choosing the right direction and being inspired by learning, Computools flourished. In 2013, a new goal was set for the company which involved building a service for client development and collaboration.

Founded in 2013 by Sergii Tymchuk, Grigoriy Shadara, Oleg Svet and Viktoria Stepanova in Kyiv (Ukraine), Computools embarked on its journey as a product company with six brave employees: four founders, a designer, and a programmer. Their determination and enthusiasm led them to dream from the onset of a company that would have a global impact and would deliver innovative solutions.
