Happy New Year from Deversus!

by Mike Walsh on January 3, 2013

We’d like to wish all of our clients, associates and friends a very healthy, happy, and prosperous New Year!

2012 was a great year for us and our clients. We celebrated our one year launch anniversary of Socket, our online quoting software. We also partnered with several new clients and successfully launched a record number of custom software development projects.

We are very thankful for all of our customers who helped make 2012 a great year and we look forward to continued success in the coming year.
