Our Story

In 2008 the web was still seen by most in South Africa as a playground rather than a serious platform for commercial success. But we thought differently. And so we set out to build a software development company that would significantly impact on millions of peoples' lives.

At Platform45 we develop mobile and web software that not only functions flawlessly, but looks beautiful too. We do this by working in small trusted teams, learning and teaching as we go. We place huge emphasis on transparency — with each other, our partners and our clients.

We believe success is not only measured in monetary terms but on the impact a business has socially too. For this reason Platform45 practices social responsibility by only applying our expertise to ethical business practices that will positively impact on the world.

Ultimately we tell our employees that their days should be spent building software that helps people improve. Bigger dreams, better business and richer lives are being brought about, all because of the work we do.

If you need some help developing software for your business, please get in touch.
