About Us

 

Who

UPDIVISION was started in 2010 by two friends in Bucharest, Romania. Now we have over 50 permanent employees and collaborators, plus a sales force in the United States, Australia, Belgium and Germany. To date, we delivered over 87 custom software products that serve more than 10 industries.

 

We work with entrepreneurs and corporations from all over the world – 12 countries on 4 continents and counting. We always develop long lasting partnerships with our clients to solve a diverse range of complex challenges. From launching a new web or mobile service to bringing business processes to the cloud or disrupting traditional industries. UPDIVISION is constantly at the forefront of technology, because innovation is our business.

 

What sets us apart from other software outsourcing companies is not only the fact that we deliver highly skilled, well managed and cost-efficient services. But also the commitment to understanding the marketing and business needs of our clients and never blindly executing tasks. Expect from us to act more as an adviser and partner in a constantly evolving digital landscape.

 

What

UPDIVISION mainly specialises in complex web and mobile software development for clients based all over the world. We offer Minimum Viable Product (MVP) development at a fixed fee and developers or entire development teams at a monthly flat fee or on an hourly basis. We work with early-stage start-ups who want to develop new apps, but also with established companies who want to build on their existing products or bring processes to the cloud.

 

Where

UPDIVISION has its main headquarters in Bucharest, Romania, but we collaborate with clients from all over the world. We also have sales forces in the United States, Australia, Belgium and Germany.

 

When

UPDIVISION was founded in Romania, in 2010, by two friends: a copywriter (Andrei Iordache) and a software developer (Eugen Tudorache). The company started out as a digital advertising agency. From 2012, UPDIVISION started doing both digital advertising and custom software development. Eugen Tudorache was in charge of the custom software department, while Andrei Iordache led the digital advertising division. We created two different brands to differentiate between these two types of services: “UPDIVISION Create”, for our advertising services, and “UPDIVISION Code” for our custom web development services. We expanded even more internationally, having clients from multiple continents and industries.

 

In June 2012, UPDIVISION entered the SaaS market by releasing an original web app called “UpYourTime”. The app was created based on our need for a better way to track employees’ billable hours. It’s targeted towards freelancers, entrepreneurs and small businesses and it’s meant to help manage projects. It’s available on desktop, mobile and tablets. UpYourTime allows users to create timesheets, do custom reporting, Excel exports, time tasks, check in or out, and others. Employers can monitor reports and count billable hours.

 

In 2013, UPDIVISION released a 2nd SaaS product, “oDent”, a dental office management system. The app allows dental offices to manage their scheduled appointments, keep patient files, manage finances, notify patients or doctors when needed, and see which patients have remaining payments to make.

 

In late 2017, we announced a rebranding and that we would be focusing solely on software development. From that point on, our main service has been making complex custom development for start-ups and corporations. We worked on car fleet management systems, payment solutions, drone piloting software, social platforms and e-commerce platforms. UPDIVISION also heavily specialized in two frameworks for PHP and JavaScript: Laravel and Vue.js.

 

In January 2019, UPDIVISION announced a partnership with Creative Tim. Together, we released multiple admin themes, free and/or paid. UPDIVISION built the backend and Creative Tim the frontend. Some of the themes use Laravel, Vue.js and Nuxt with API-powered backends.

 

How

Our team is small enough to be ultra-flexible, and smart enough to solve big problems. Demanding project managers, guru web developers, hip mobile developers, visionary software architects, AI engineers, encyclopedic sysadmins, detail obsessed testers. All our people have two things in common: they are brilliant thinkers and makers and outstanding human beings.

 

This is our main dev stack:

 

icon For frontend web development: Nuxt.js, Vue.js, JavaScript, jQuery, Bootstrap 4, HTML 5, CSS 3 and ECMAScript.

icon For backend web development: Laravel (PHP), CodeIgniter

icon For e-commerce platforms: Laravel (PHP), Magento, Shopware, PrestaShop.

icon For native mobile apps: Objective-C and Swift for iOS, and Java and Kotlin for Android.

icon For progressive web apps: Vue, React Native.

icon For cross-platform apps: Titanium, Appcelerator.

icon As development tools: Visual Studio Code, GIT, CI/CD Pipelines and Postman.

icon As database management systems: MySQL and PostgreSQL.

 

 

Co-founders

Andrei Iordache

Andrei Iordache started as an awarded copywriter and now is the CEO and co-founder of UPDIVISION. Together with his co-founder, Eugen Tudorache, built the company to what it is today – over 50 employees and collaborators, clients in 12 countries across 10 industries – from scratch. In the process, he learned how to hire, manage and promote the best people. How to develop excellent mobile and web software with distributed teams. And how to do business development and strategy. His background in creative advertising and marketing proved to be an advantage in an industry that typically puts the technical solution before the business and consumer needs.

As an entrepreneur, he is always looking for new growth opportunities and partnerships. And lately, he started giving more back to the community, mainly through educational programs.

 

Eugen Tudorache

Eugen Tudorache started to work for a major software company as he was studying for his bachelor in Computer Science. In 2010 he joined forces with Andrei Iordache, his high school friend, to start UPDIVISION by combining their web development and digital marketing skills. Currently, Eugen Tudorache is the company’s CTO and works on challenging software engineering projects.
