For many years Macrix has been a competent and reliable partner in creating the SAMABUESA system. Our specialists are responsible for designing and programming IT solutions, their integration into the existing infrastructure, defining system requirements as well as implementation of solutions and technical support for the system.
To this aim Macrix utilizes modern Agile methods, current frameworks and our own platform ProconTEL which allows for software updates and integration of new modules without any production downtime.
