Major information technology companies focus on what we call “speculative technology”, such as Big Data, Analytics, or BIM.
These systems help increase; or maintain your sales revenue well after they have been fully implemented and paid for.
Noravand focuses on engineering operational and cost control information technologies that produce immediate and measurable returns on your investments. Ultimately, our solutions help pay for “speculative technology” and make them efficient and cost effective.
