                          what our members say

                          We want to change people’s lives by creating solutions that transform the way they work. Solutions that free up time for people to focus on the creative aspects of their job instead of menial, repetitive tasks. Together with our partners in the cluster we will develop innovative solutions that will allow us to achieve our ultimate goal: to create software that changes the world.
                          Mihai MATEIEssensys Software
                          Tremend has joined the Smart Alliance cluster with the aim of creating better IT solutions and larger projects using our common synergy. We believe this can only happen when people collaborate, only together we can build great ideas. We hope to develop strong partnerships through this cluster considering the diversity in the members’ backgrounds. One of the main advantages of Smart Alliance is its composition of members with a wide range of expertise.
                          Ioan COCANTremend
                          We decided to join Smart Alliance so that we can combine our skills, experience and abilities with those of the other members, in order to generate synergies that will enable us to sustainably develop in the future and to better satisfy the needs of our customers and business partners.
