Brand Promise

We will enable your organization to grow and compete, using technology when and where it makes the most sense.

What we value

LaunchIT listens. Our first priority is to understand your needs, before we suggest a solution. When we know your objectives, timeline and vision, together we map out how your vision will become a reality. Once a solution is delivered, we mentor and monitor the new technology, to ensure that the results meet your objectives.
The world can be a better place directly through our work. Beyond our work and the business domain, we also seek to make a positive and lasting impact. We donate a portion of our time and resources to community and global issues and institutions.
LaunchIT exhibits excellence through employees’ continuously updated knowledge of emerging technologies, their positive and engaging attitude towards customers and their willingness to try new ideas. We set our standard for value creation extremely high.
We represent our capabilities honestly, and we observe appropriate confidentiality of client information. We do not misrepresent our purposes in seeking information. We only make promises we can keep. We take the time to consider our actions, and we do not compromise our intellectual integrity for special interests. We share our objective findings with clients—even those that may be unpopular—in a manner that is both candid and respectful.
Our workplace is diverse and global. It is fundamental to our success that we accept, value and incorporate the contributions of people from a wide variety of backgrounds. Diversity of thought, expertise and experience is crucial to creating an environment in which creative tensions exist and new ideas emerge.
