Get To Know Us

Maria’s blog and the DriveWorks Facebook page, faithfully record our various go karting challenges, rounders tournaments, pancake day fun, volunteering events, and visits to maker faires.

We’re a very friendly team and really enjoy meeting people. We like to listen. We love to find out from the people we meet what they want to be able to do and we like to discuss with them how automation can improve their own jobs/company’s competitive position.

Above all we love what we do and we are here to create great software that provides real value to our customers.

We’ve tried to share as much information as we can about our software so that you can decide for yourself if it is something that you would benefit from. If there’s anything you still want to know, just ask!
