We are a creative agency specialised in software production. Ours is a dynamic and fast growing enterprise.

The secret of our success lies in using a software development process that is “agile”: this approach is also sustained by our ability to fully embrace innovation and by the creativity that stems from our acknowledged track record in the field.

We offer a digital service. We are well aware that not everyone is a programmer. We don’t expect our clients to be IT experts. Our own business is not about dealing with IT problems, but rather it offers commercial solutions to maximize profits.

Virgo Systems is a limited company that is managed as a holding. The development of software, the running of projects and other IT activities are carried out at our headquarters.

Ever since its foundation, the main challenge Virgo Systems has had to face has been its tremendous growth. The company, which started off in a garage with three friends, now employs 75 people.

 

 Mission statement

Our business is not about dealing with IT problems, but rather offering commercial solutions to maximize profits.

 

 Teamwork

We believe that even the best intuitions can be turned into value only through teamwork. The ideas our clients put forward are developed cooperating with them at every stage of the project, from development to end-user result evaluation. In this process every single team member adds value to product creation. Our strength lies in how the team works, from conducting a thorough examination of the issues to evaluating the situation and finally to coming up with a solution that garners everyone’s approval. All this is achieved through an excellence methodology that makes the whole process agile, efficient, and effective.

 

 We are agile

Our goal is to come up with the best possible product at the lowest possible cost in the minimum time.

This process to create value leverages on our methodology, an agile procedure at the core of our software development practice.

 

 Management

Virgo Systems skilfully combines into perfect harmony its own innovation-oriented mind-set with the experience gained over 15 years of activity.
