Founded in 2002, softWORKZ Innovation Inc. is proudly a Canadian company based in Montreal, QC with offices in Victoria, BC, Canada.
For the past 20 plus years our platform has been known as software_DNA and remains at the heart of our technology.
We, the original founders, are active in the company and are proud of our achievements over the past decades.
Our priority from day one has been to provide a solid and responsive level of support to our clients.
We developed software_DNA to be highly automated for ourselves, running and supporting it, as well as for our clients and their end-users.
The 'DNA' in software_DNA was meant to reflect 'dynamic network activation' and at the same time to reflect the fact that our solution was thoroughly integrated into the licensed software, thus an integral part of its DNA.
Our first working prototype was successfully tested in 2002 on Windows XP. Originally, we named the license file 'CDM' which was an abbreviation for 'Client Data Module'.
When we launched software_DNA the early internet was flooded with software passwords and code generators. Generally, speaking, software was licensed by simply entering a code. Without an Internet connection, the software was stranded on its own to try to defend itself from software pirates.
These we the early days of the cloud, as the technology was emerging, software_DNA was initially hosted on individual machines, set up in 3 geographical locations, from Canada's East Coast to its West Coast. The servers would sync and back-up in real time to provide a reliable back end.
