We provide outstanding high value and high-quality solutions

How we create outstanding value and quality solutions

Gislen Software is a Microsoft Gold Partner and is certified under ISO 9001:2008. We employ a skilled team of developers in Chennai, India and we have a subsidiary company in Sweden. Our multi-national team is totally focused on delivering effective software solutions which enable our customers to achieve their critical IT objectives.

We work with technology partners in the Nordic markets, in the UK and in the USA.  Our management team is multinational and many of our people have worked with us for ten years or more.  This accumulated international experience gives us a better understanding of our clients’ business requirements.

Many of our initial assignments have developed into long-term relationships which reflect our commitment to open communication and on-time, on-budget delivery.  We maintain a skilled and exceptionally stable team which provides dependable continuity.

Our history is one of controlled and steady growth, our approach is based on professional, technical, human and environmental standards which have evolved over time on a foundation of strong and clear business principles.  All this is combined in an unswerving commitment to our clients, our people and our shared objectives.

We are uniquely positioned to provide complex software solutions, delivered reliably, on time and with excellent value for money.  To complement our own teams, we have access to a pool of software developers from tried and tested partners here in India to add qualified resources when necessary.

We have completed development projects for international clients in many market sectors, including e-commerce, public services, transport, market research, medicine, power supply, test and measurement, education, financial services and manufacturing.

India, with its elite educational establishments, high standards of spoken and written English and natural affinity for IT, has become the destination of choice for many global software companies.  If your goal is to be an efficient, agile business, outsourcing to India is a reliable and cost-effective way to gain the best software skills available.

Approach

Our approach is, first and foremost, based on understanding the business requirements of our clients. This demands a combination of skills and experience and the avoidance of assumptions.

Everything we do at an early stage is discussed and analysed internally and reviewed in detail with the client.

We then ask ourselves an important question – “How best can we add value?” because we have learned the crucial importance of value in a business relationship.

Value ensures client satisfaction and earns repeat business – bringing the benefits of continuity to both parties.  We develop the vast majority of our projects using agile methodologies, keeping our clients fully updated on progress throughout the duration.

We are a multi-cultural company and an equal opportunities employer, proud that 40% of our team are women. But competence, honesty and the determination to improve are the most important factors in our approach.  We recognise and reward productivity, achievement and loyalty and seek to be a company which is, simply, good to be part of. Being a good company brings with it social and environmental responsibilities. We are actively involved in the community in many ways and have developed ‘green’ policies to minimise our footprint.

Finally, and importantly, we have a geographical focus. We concentrate on markets we know and understand – the Nordic countries, the UK and, of course, India. This is not to say we will not accept an assignment from elsewhere but, if we do, it will be on the basis of careful consideration. Until then, we are content in the knowledge that the work we do for our clients reaches out to every corner of the world.

History

Gislen Software was founded by Mikael Gislen in 1994.  Mikael, a Swedish computer scientist and businessman saw the potential in India and committed to life and work in this country.  Based on his initiative our company history is defined by our clients and their successes, our commitment to industry standards and our investment in skills and infrastructure.

1996 Programma Electric (later acquired by General Electric). We were awarded a project to develop software for testing high voltage equipment including relays and circuit breakers by what became a long-term client.

1998 Telia (later TeliaSonera). We completed a critical first project for this Swedish national telecommunications operator and we expanded our Indian office.

We started working with Air Business, a logistics company owned by An Post.
