Any day I open my email and see an email from Peter Searle (the BIG boss at BBD, where I work) in there, I wonder if a trip to HR is in my near future , today though is something far more awesome and rather that tell you myself I thought I would share Peter’s words because it is just fantastic:
More than 25 years ago Barone, Budge and Dominick, also known as BB&D, was begun by a group of people dedicated to delivering software solutions to clients. Initially, the work was done in an attic, and those people were Sandra Barone, Tom Budge and Ralf Dominick.
The current corporate identity was created in the eighties with the founding of the company.
BB&D now employs more than 400 software professionals. We are South Africa’s largest independent custom software development company, and we serve customers in both South Africa and internationally.
In moving forward, we will never forget where we’ve come from. On the contrary, we will even further imprint the attitudes and values that have made BB&D what it is today.
We are taking the core values, achievements and expectations that have become so entrenched into the company’s make-up and are transitioning them into a fresh new identity that resonates with the next generation of the new BBD.
We are now BBD. And our brand line is – combined intelligence.
BBD work together with our clients, sharing knowledge and ensuring we can deliver solutions that improve their business. This meeting of minds, connecting and building on each other’s brilliance enables us to design solutions for them that mark the way forward.
In essence, we are more than the simple sum of our parts. Our combined intelligence is the greater whole.
Very proud to be a BBDer
