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
