Why Rietta, Inc.? Not your Same Old, Same Old
All companies tout their "experience", listing all of the technologies they employ (See ours.) or the number of years in business (that's 18 for us!). But we don't just have that experience, we embody that experience. Our business processes are designed from the ground up to incorporate the principles we've practised in developing business applications for others.
Perhaps that's why our clients keep coming back for more.
What if you could know, almost in real time, how your project's going– what has been done and how your expenses are running? At Rietta, you can. We are virtually transparent! We've integrated the coding, the reporting and the billing so you always know where you stand. Its that "experience" thing. Can anyone else make that claim?
We didn't think so.
We're a boutique technology company – in other words, we're small by choice. The advantage to you is that you can always talk directly with the developer on your project. No one stands in-between. You know what is being done, and why, because you're talking to the person actually doing it. Our size lets us be nimble and responsive to every client. Who can beat that?
Security Based Development
The headlines say it every day: "Data breach at Company X". Big or small, no company is immune to attack. But some are prepared.
We build security into every layer of every system we make. From technology controls to infrastructure, from the most basic system to the most complex, security is at the heart of everything we do. Crazy bank-level security. So you know your, and your customers', information is safe. And someday... you'll thank us for it.
A Company is only as Good as its People And Our People Are Good
