how we click
Blue Dolphin Software was formed as the result of a passion shared by the founders, Fred Scefi and Tim Tuohy, for creating a better way to deliver business value through software while enjoying what we do.
We set out to be recognised experts in understanding exactly what our clients are looking for and delivering a quality product with a speed and efficiency that will exceed your expectations.
One of the key development projects we are currently working on leverages blockchain technology. We are exploring how smart contracts could disrupt insurance, gambling, mortgages and other business sectors by developing our own smart contracts using Ethereum.
We strongly believe that we are in an era that needs broadminded specialists rather than know-it-all generalists and the value of team formation and cohesion should never be underestimated. Our strength lies in our collective skillset and the synergy within our team.
We do not send individual consultants to different client sites to work on disparate projects, we go in as one team whose members have worked together, respect each other’s qualities and have a clear understanding of each other's roles and responsibilities.
Which means that when you engage Blue Dolphin Software you engage a team that has done the forming, storming and norming and comes to you already performing.
