In the late 1990’s – early 2000’s the pioneers from Western Europe and the United States started to look for software development partners in Eastern Europe. Belarus was attractive as an outsourcing destination thanks to high IT potential built up during the Soviet times and a significant price advantage.
In 1997 a team of seven enthusiasts established Applied Systems company. They concentrated their efforts on electronics design, embedded systems, high-pressure liquid chromatography and interfacing software and hardware. In 1998 the company chose emission testing as the main direction of its development. This decision is regarded as one of most crucial in the company’s history and resulted in extensive cooperation with the automotive industry leaders. Applied Systems has created its own SCADA system and successfully develops high-level and middle-level software components for measuring the toxicity of vehicle exhaust and checking the conformity to international ecological standards (Euro, EPA, Japan), for automating diagnostic and calibration of testing equipment and for other applications.
From a small group of professionals Applied Systems evolved into an employer of sixty people. During the fifteen years the company has accumulated a substantial know-how in design and development of data acquisition and visualization software, hardware checking and calibration systems, alarm systems and mobile solutions. Applied Systems’ key advantage is the ability to create complex multi-components solutions and to successfully integrate hardware and software.
Applied Systems is able to meet stringent requirements for system reliability thanks to unprecedented expertise in the field of automated software testing. The company has even created Octopus, its own solution for automated testing control, which increases the efficiency of testing and improves test tool infrastructure.
“If you look at the complexity of the tasks we have been solving, you will be confident to entrust your project to us”, says Sergei Usovich, founder and CEO at Applied Systems. “Belarusians score top results in international math and programming contests. Thanks to our close cooperation with universities we have access to the pool of talent. The symbiosis of experience and enthusiasm– that's what helped us to deliver outstanding results to our customers”.
