Why We’re Here

What it’s like to work with Geneca

We're Naturally Curious.

At Geneca, we learn about your problem and your needs so we can deliver the right outcome. We work with you to determine how to best engage your users, so we can recognize opportunities and create growth.

We’re Not an Answer in Search of a Problem.

Genecians are technology agnostic. We’re interested in solving your problem, not the problem we solved for someone else the day before. We connect with your unique needs to improve customer interactions and generate uncommon solutions.

We're Big Picture Thinkers.

A great piece of software isn’t necessarily a great business solution. We identify the right approach and implement the right software, in a way that will impact the bigger picture and bottom line of your business.

We're Committed to Delivering Value.

Flagship products that we create deliver double digit growth. Simply put, we make a big impact on your business. We deliver value right from the start with our agile approach, and we don’t stop until the solution is complete.

We’ve got history

19 years ago, Geneca was born as a technology consulting firm, fueled by the conviction that technology investments are judged by the business benefit they deliver.

That means that even if we did exactly what we were asked to do, we failed if our work did not meet our client’s ROI expectations. If it saved our client some money, that was good. However, if it made them money, well that was both valuable AND rewarding!

We partner with our clients to design products that engage their employees and customers, increasing accessability and efficiency–products that are loved.

Geneca uses a unique, four pillar approach to bring business software that gives them the power to delight their customers and outpace the competition.

Geneca implements crowd sourcing models and wall Gantt analytics to forecast project movements.

Geneca opens with a focus on business results oriented technology.

Our Mission

To help our clients stay ahead of their competition by pushing the boundaries of what is possible with advanced strategy and
cutting-edge technology.

Our Vision

Use software to create something extraordinary from something ordinary. To do that, we have to be more than a technology company. We have to be the place to go to turn a big idea into big business impact.

What Makes Us Genecians

Be Courageous

Genecians are confident in the face of any challenge and unafraid of ambiguity or uncharted territory. We continually drive toward the right solution with internal compasses that point the way.

Celebrate the Spark

Genecians prize the innate creativity and inspiration in each other. We’re inventive people who love to dream with our clients and champion new ideas.

Be Delightful

We strive to not just serve, but to understand. Genecians are problem solvers and the client’s problem is our priority. We work hard to provide products that reflect our clients’ visions and exceed expectations.

Be Unstoppable

We have a culture of doers. Resilient and resourceful, we create an atmosphere where great things can happen. If something gets in the way, Genecians figure out how to get rid of or around it in a hurry.

Build Tomorrow

Inspiration is nothing without the drive to innovate, create and deliver new technologies. Genecians know how to use software to bring an idea to life – not just dreaming it, but building it

Set the Course

We take personal ownership in all that we do, always looking for a path forward while consciously seeking ways to empower others.
