Profile

IST constitutes one of the most respected Independent Software Vendors in the Greek market.

Being in the forefront of the Greek ICT market since 1991, IST has established itself as a technology and client-driven company, bringing tangible value to its client-base through a sophisticated portfolio of software services and products.

Think Big, Act Small

 

International Software Techniques S.A. (doing business as IST) is a private company of Greek interests, established in 1991.

IST currently functions both as an Independent Software Vendor (ISV) and as a Value-Added Reseller (VAR) for third-party software products and services, constituting what has been lately coined as "boutique software development company".

The company is headquartered in Marousi, Athens, Greece. The management team owns 100% of the share capital, allowing the company to pursue a coherent growth strategy.

IST dedicates itself to delivering highly sophisticated services to a number of high growth and demanding industries, such as telecommunications, banking and pharma. The company is primarily addressing the needs of large-sized and Enterprise-level organizations (either private, publicly-traded or multinational).

The company is also actively pursuing grants through Greek and European funded research projects.

At IST, we are a strong advocate of the "Think Big, Act Small" management approach: think big, authentic ideas about solving customers’ problems, making better products, and creating value. But, at the same time never stop acting like a start-up; staying humble, treating every employee like the owner, and having everyone in the frontline.

We make a conscious and continuous effort to combine the strengths of a big organization with the hunger of a start-up. We build excellent relationships with our customers, suppliers, and employees. We groom future leaders at all levels, and we balance their short-term goals with their long-term visions.
