Designing and developing applications and software solutions has been a core and continuous activity of Centrino Technologies since its very existence. We have developed for a wide range of national organizations some of their most popular and successful applications. A typical example is the enterprise MIS platform for the microfinance sector (Vanguard Financials). We have accumulated extensive experience in addressing the needs and requirements of the banking and microfinance sectors.

Our offerings rely on a wide range of Commercial Off-The-Shelf tools, as well as Open Source frameworks. We offer the best price/performance ratio and optimal Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the client.

Software Coverage

Centrino Technologies covers the full lifecycle of application and software development. We maintain in-house competence and training centers and apply new technologies and innovations. Our processes are constantly revised to embrace world class, state-of-the-art techniques. Our solutions are delivered as stand-alone or constituent parts of integrated, turn-key projects.

Centrino Technologies relies on modern and efficient IT and telecoms technology infrastructure comprising a wide spectrum of tools and platforms as well as laboratory and testing environments. Almost all the developed solutions are complex, critical, sensitive and high availability systems, operating under strict SLAs (Service Level Agreements). We follow well-proven and professional working methodologies. They rely on accumulated experience and know- how, software libraries, best practices and constant improvement methods. Moreover, project specific metrics are defined and applied to ensure consistent results of a high standard.


Centrino Technologies relies on the use of a wide range of methodologies which include PRINCE2 for project management, UML/RUP and CMM (Capability Maturity Model) for software engineering, ITIL (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) for IT services management and others.
