Anyone can write code. But not just anyone can assemble multiple teams of highly motivated IT professionals to create software that drives a client’s business. We believe that if a client’s investment in Helmes isn’t either producing revenue or creating savings, the investment is hardly an investment – it’s money wasted.
When a client and an IT company come together, both make massive commitments of time and money. Helmes’ 25-year history is full of client- and employee partnerships that span decades. This is a testament to getting things right.
We currently employ 200 with an annual turnover exceeding 20 million euros. The majority of our clients are located in Western Europe.
Helmes builds business critical solutions for our clients, and we are specialists in integration.
We create custom software, as well as licensing solutions for ready-made software, and pride ourselves in knowing how to make the correct choice between the two.
We offer hosting and maintenance support, as well as aftercare for business critical solutions.
"A healthy partnership means we say what we think and the client says what they think. Our project tracking systems allow the client to see in real time what we're doing, but the relationships are generally so good I'd be surprised if they're actually checking up on us."
The Helmes organization is structured on the basis of professional partnerships.
Our employee reward system takes a page from law firms and consultancies, with every employee financially tied to the success of his/her client relationship.
Every client has a dedicated team of five to seven members. Teams enjoy great independence but take full ownership of the partnership.
A single team, the administration team, serves the development teams, ensuring access to world-class tools and enabling a constant flow of ideas and best practices.
