ICS specializes in helping companies develop and deliver business critical applications. Our customer´s applications tend to encapsulate proprietary business knowledge that provides a competitive edge in the marketplace. This knowledge cannot be purchased in shrink-wrapped form and requires the development of custom applications by professional developers. These applications tend to be very sophisticated, requiring the best developers and tools.
With a customer base of over 8,000 companies, ICS products have been used by most of the Fortune 500 and the Global 1000. Here is just a sampling:
