Westcom was founded in 1998 by Vit Vrba, it was typical student startup, that focused on custom web development. Westcom started its business with development of Content Management Systems, E-commerce solutions and Intranet portals. The company specialized in analysis, design and implementation of web systems for mid/large companies and Westcom prides itself on always creating custom systems that exactly fit specific customer's needs.
As Westcom started to become successful, professionalizing the team was the priority. It aquired many certifications, including. the Quality management (ISO 9001:2000) or International Project Management (IPMA). These demanding tasks helped us later to realize very complicated and complex customer wishes quickly and professionally. Westcom has very stable team full of experienced people who love developing and creating innovations in web technologies.
Throughout the time we were creating these intricate systems for demanding customers we suddenly realized 2 things. Firstly, we had to admit that after years and years of business development we were a little tired of these monotonous web development projects. We felt that we would like to try something new where we could use our knowledge to try out new ideas. We found out that our best ideas and solutions were achieved during our recreation and research time.
Secondly, we realized that we have always developed solutions for only mid/large companies. Yes, their projects were interesting, large and with very nice budgets, but there are also millions of people in the world who would like to express themselves on the Internet and don't have the technical skills to create their own website.
So, this was the basis of our original idea of Webnode...
