We’ve worked with businesses of all sizes to streamline their processes and software systems, embrace the benefits of new technology and prepare for rapid growth through design, implementation, and delivery of custom software solutions.Work with us
We're extremely proud of our track record. Here's just a small sample of our past and current projects, and the words of appreciation from our clients.
Responsive is a fast-growing Canadian fintech company whose unified software platform empowers financial advisors be more productive and engaging, and provide clients with ongoing guidance to generate long-term wealth growth. We helped Responsive shorten the time to value for a solid, secure AWS cloud foundation. Responsive's operations team now benefits from centralized identity and access management, better logging and monitoring, and improved infrastructure automation. In addition, our architects and engineers contributed to the design and implementation of Responsive's microservices-based application architecture, as well as the optimization of the continuous integration and delivery processes and procedures.
As Responsive begins expanding into new regions, it is imperative that we work with partners who are experts in security, cloud architecture, and best practices for SOC 2 audits.
Our partnership with Aligned was essential for us to meet these technical objectives. We are excited to continue to partner with Aligned and would highly recommend Aligned to any business that wants to solve challenging architectural problems with a focus on security, scalability, and business growth.

Chris was a fantastic engineering and architecture partner. He spearheaded the architecture and solution design for a key component of our technology platform, and worked with our teams to build it from the ground up.
As a product manager, I admired Chris’ ability to understand and effectively communicate the vision and strategy of what we were building to the rest of the engineering team.
In addition, I greatly appreciated his ability to effectively and independently manage our development team. With Chris in charge, I always had confidence that we were making progress and working on the right thing.

Working with Aligned has been an excellent experience. They are a trusted and critical partner in the development of our business. We were able to set out an aggressive plan for getting our systems built, and they executed that plan very well.
We've continued to be able to rely on their timely support and expertise as we've engaged in projects and system iterations over the past few years. Not only are they excellent at their craft, but the Aligned team is always a pleasure to work with.

We helped Experior make work fun and engaging. We built an application that extracts and processes data trapped in their legacy logistics systems and translates it into real-time feedback for employees, in the form of rewards and intelligence to support smart decision-making.
Aligned are consummate professionals and a great addition to any team. They seem to truly care about the challenge at hand and channel their passion and extensive experience into great communication and code.
Norbert Loszewski, Vice President
A growing Canadian company and Aligned client since 2013, My Move Realty initially needed a custom software solution with explosive growth potential. Working within the typical constraints of a young startup, we made calculated choices in the planning and development phase with a goal of creating a versatile tool they could grow with. We developed and released a customer-facing portal that allowed self-serve upgrades for My Move Realty customers, which resulted in a 20% increase in upgrades purchased compared to the previous quarter. The company’s most measurable gain was revealed when they compared the amount of staff/HR input per dollar of revenue. After a series of software development initiatives, they were able to lower their HR input per dollar by 23%.
Working with Aligned since Spring 2013 has been a very positive experience for our company. We find them very responsive to our needs and the quality of their work has been high. We continue to see Aligned as one of our strategic IT development partners and would not hesitate to recommend others to use their services.

Upgrading legacy software applications can improve efficiency, productivity, and security, integrate with other systems, enhance scalability, save costs, future-proof your business, provide end-to-end data governance, and attract new talent. Investing in application modernization helps companies to stay competitive and succeed in the long run.
Data modernization should be at the center of any digital transformation initiative, allowing organizations to achieve faster speed to market, competitive advantage, and cost savings. Democratize access to data and empower your workforce to make data-driven decisions.
Before embarking on any application modernization project, it is important to establish baseline performance metrics and KPIs. This will give you a clear understanding of how the applications are currently performing and what improvements need to be made. It will also allow you to track the progress of your modernization efforts and ensure that they are delivering the desired results.
