In recent years, New Orleans’ reputation as a tech hub has steadily grown. And among local companies of all kinds—insurance, hospitality, financial, retail, manufacturing and more—one business has garnered its own reputation for providing quality custom software solutions. Since 2008, local software engineering company CotingaSoft has developed a variety of web and mobile applications for both well-established local companies and startups.
“Great technology doesn’t have to come from other places,” says Barrett Conrad, Owner/Manager of CotingaSoft. “The capacity to build anything exists throughout our region.”
Alongside software development, CotingaSoft also offers consulting and digital product development. They can review an organization’s people, processes, and tools to find improvements and new opportunities. From there they can provide analysis or development of a new digital product idea to quickly match market needs and beyond.
At CotingaSoft, software development is driven by people first—each project begins with a personal relationship between its team and the client. Instead of sticking to a prescriptive process or solution, the team works to see each project individually and give clients the confidence that CotingaSoft understands their goals and will apply the right technology solutions.
Conrad sees continued growth for CotingaSoft in its future.
“This year, digital tools became even more critical,” he says. “All of our current clients continued to invest in the tools and products we build for them while a number of other companies and individuals are finally taking the leap to build products for their futures.”
