It has been a long journey! And there has been a lot of fun and excitement along the way! Here are some of the highlights form our history….
1999 - The Plan
ITAZ was founded in 1999 to build software products for information management
2000 - Custom projects to pay the bills!
While working on building our own products, we also built custom software solutions for customers around the world.
2001 - doQuments is released!
After testing the waters with a few small products, we launched our flagship document management software product-‘doQuments’ in 2001. doQuments proved to be a great success for us quickly garnering clients such as the US Food and Drug Administration and the Westpac Bank in New Zealand.
2002 - More product focus
After the success of doQuments, the company decided to focus full time on the document management software business and slowly stopped the custom software development business.
The fruits of focus
Our gamble paid off. Focusing full time on our own document management products meant better products, better customer support and more customers!
Risking it all!
We decided to completely rewrite the application based on all the feedback we had received from customers around the world. Such a rewrite of a stable product is normally considered a very big risk but we decided to take the plunge and go ahead.
2008 July - Here comes GLOBODOX!
After two nerve wrecking years we produced the new completely redesigned version 5 of the product. With the launch of version 5, we decided to discontinue the doQuments brand and started selling the software under the GLOBODOX brand.
2008 - Another market
Sensing the need for a simpler and more economical product we had simultaneously started work on another product aimed at small businesses and independent professionals.
2008 November - SOHODOX
Shortly after the launch of GLOBODOX, we released SOHODOX.
SOHODOX was aimed at the Small Office Home Office (SOHO) user while GLOBODOX was aimed at the medium to large enterprises.
Both SOHODOX and GLOBODOX turned out to be a huge successes for us. ITAZ started growing like never before! We grew to thousands of customers all over the world! Apart from our traditional markets of US and Europe, we also won large customers in Far East Asia and Africa.
2013 - Preparing for the future
We wanted to upgrade engines behind our products to better them for future technologies. So we began a complex rewrite of the engine.
Version 10 released!
After more than two years of hard work, we released version 10 of GLOBODOX and SOHODOX. Both products were now ready of the future and form a solid foundation for the massive improvements and functionalities to come in the future!
2016 - More hard work to do
Work begins on the next generation of GLOBODOX and SOHODOX built on top of our rewritten engine. There is a LOT to come!
