Our vision is to be the most trusted IT solutions company in the Philippines by delivering excellent services and positive business value to our customers, partners, and stakeholders — a team driven by the boldest, most brilliant minds in IT.
In 2007, Novare started as the software development arm of the systems integrator veteran Micro-D International. With our mantra "Think Build Run", we designed, developed, and operated enterprise applications for large companies in the country and abroad.
Today, we have grown from a lean team of Java developers into a powerhouse of 200 software engineers, data scientists, cloud strategists, and IT innovators. Our web and mobile applications service millions of our customers’ subscribers. Our big data deployments process petabytes of data for trending and analysis. We have transformed omnichannel customer experiences through chatbot, artificial intelligence, and augmented and virtual realities.
Technology has changed the world in the span of our 12 years in the industry. Novare has always evolved with it. Let us take your organization to the future. We dare you to innovate.
Bold. Brave. Brilliant.
That’s our Novare team. From our grassroots team to our senior executives, we are a bunch of go-getters, problem-solvers, and certified technology geeks. Check out our leadership.
