Akiani is a word taken from Inuit, the language of a population living in a tough environment and having to adapt to it.
It translates as « on the other side », for us it’s the users’ side.
Before creating Akiani, we (the founders) met at engineering school, where we became friends. Next came the business world, consulting firms, scientific research and finally, Akiani! Which looks like us: a bit of rigor from research, pragmatism from industry, and a bit of imagination to keep our friendship story in the project. In short, today we are here to offer you the best we can do, whilst considering your requirements in terms of time and budget and allowing some space for originality.
Since 2013, we have carefully been building our team. We’ve made some mistakes and we have grown. Today, we have surrounded ourselves with experts who share our values and work ethics of a job well done for the right reasons. But we don’t plan on stopping there. We are working every day to improve our methods, the quality of our service and our deliverables. So your users are constantly more delighted, and so are you.
