Sustainable software development of the future

Always on time and at the agreed price

Software development in itself is challenging enough – it no longer needs to be hampered by a software development partner. With this simple insight, we have been providing senior-level software development for our clients’ projects since 2002. We look at the software industry through the sustainable lenses of the future. We anticipate changes affecting the customer's business, always implement solutions with the most appropriate technology, and ensure our customer's success through the Future Proof Development™ process we’ve developed.


“We offer the kind of service one would buy oneself.”

‘We offer the kind of service we’d buy ourselves.’

Devolon's story began in 2002, when Jaakko Rytsölä noticed a niche for an agile, scalable software house in the Finnish market. Jaakko has many years behind him working in various Finnish technology and telecommunications companies. From the very beginning, Devolon has built its competitive advantage on reasonably priced, scalable software that meets the demands of international know-how. ‘Developing customer satisfaction and experience isn’t rocket science. The most important skill is to be able to put yourself in the position of the customer, and critically evaluate your own performance through those lenses. This way we’ve developed services that we ourselves would be willing to buy.’
