Pragtech, a Pioneering Technology

These small time projects that Noel took helped build Pragtech’s portfolio.
“I realized I had to take another step and change the direction of my company to software development,” said Noel as he thrives to get more clients who were willing to partner with the company and pay for the services to develop software.
A little over a year, clients kept coming due to the quality of work and the capacity of Pragtech to deliver results on time. This gave Noel more confidence to level up his tech game.
Pragtech has been consistently boasting its potential to develop robust web and mobile applications for its clients using the latest technologies such as Elixir, React, AI, .Net, Kubernetes, Docker, and Arduino as it journeys for expansion and making its presence known in the global market.

Getting Ahead and Transforming Businesses in the APAC
