Our History

2000

Scand Ltd. was founded in September 2000 by a group of enthusiasts. From the very beginning, the company specialized in custom software development, mostly in Java and C++.

2001

Yet a small team started the development of its own version of JSP and an Open Source implementation of applets for creating Web-based applications with a rich user interface – AWT eXtensions.

2002

The quality of our services resulted into a fast growth of the company — in 2002, the personnel consisted of about 20 employees. We started to invest into the development of our own products, mostly related to the Java components for RIA.

2003-2004

During these years, this helped us establish a long-term relationship with a number of clients from the USA and EU, most of whom are still working with us. We created a Japanese version of our website and started an active marketing campaign in Japan.

2005

This strategy turned out a success and in 2005, it helped us win a project for a major Japanese corporation, which later brought about new contracts with several other customers in Japan. In 2005, we also started cooperation with a major US-based manufacturer of hand-held devices and formed a department of mobile software development. In April 2005, our team grew up to 120 engineers.

2006

In 2006, we started several projects for new Swedish and Swiss customers and opened a PHP department. Since the beginning, this department was actively using JavaScript and developed a couple of own frameworks for RAD.

2007

We were intensively using .NET and developing several system drivers for a large US-based company. In September 2007, we established a joint hi-tech laboratory with the major Belarusian IT university (BSUIR).

2008

During 2008, SCAND was further working out its major .NET and Java development concepts. The company introduced Agile and Scrum methodologies into most projects and launched several projects for which 2008 top-notch technologies such as WPF, Silverlight, Groovy, Grails for Java and Python were applied.

2009

The year 2009 brought about the formation of a new group of developers for the iPhone mobile platform. This year, SCAND also developed a Web 2.0 application resembling webOS using Ajax and dynamic html. We attracted new customers from the publishing sphere and grew up enough to establish another Minsk-based office.

2010

We became engaged in several Web mashups and cloud-computing projects for the US-based start-ups. We also developed a facility management system for a European corporation. We are proud to have released a range of our own software products: Phoebius (a PHP framework), SkyRemote, SVG Kit for Adobe Creative Suite, and some more which we are happy to offer.

2011

SCAND becomes a member of the Belarus Hi-Tech park (HTP). The residents of this association receive significant benefits from the government that help the IT industry in the country to develop.

2012

SCAND receives the ISO 9001:2008 quality management standard certificate, which allows the company to better organize its internal structure and processes, improve the quality of its services, and as a result, increase customer satisfaction.

2013

The number of company’s employees reaches over 200 specialists.

2014

We finish our first project in the field of Big Data, involving both Apache Spark and Hadoop.

2015

The company achieves its all-time highest number of employees. Now, there are more than 250 staff members on board.

2016

SCAND starts cooperation with a large Scandinavian government organization in a field of supply chain management.

2017

The company passes the ISO 9001 and ISO 27001 certifications and reconfirms the quality of its services. Today, we are the company with over 300 employees that are actively working with over 50 clients worldwide and looking forward to starting new projects.
