Webstep is tailored towards digital transformation (digitization), customer satisfaction, and proud consultants, who feel at home.
The startup phase 2000-2003
During the beginning our focus was to build and shape an innovative, seamless and efficient IT consultant firm made up of competent people. The idea was that a company consisting of senior consultants would easily succeed in both hiring the best and ensuring that our clients work with the best. A company built on an excellent working environment combined with returning customers was a recipe for success. And it worked.
By 2003 the work model was in place and the company was growing accordingly with excellent results. Our focus was sales and customers, marketing, and customer consulting and customer follow-up. It was now time to broaden our horizon.
Blooming as of 2004
Between 2004 and 2006 Webstep was established in several cities with Oslo being first, quickly followed by Stavanger and Trondheim. The same work model was utilized. Between 2007 and 2010 the Oslo office was divided into four different divisions based on our various technology- and market areas. A division for Java- and .Net technology was created first followed by divisions for Business Intelligence and project- and testing management.
The acquisition of Diversify in 2012 in Sweden resulted in offices in Stockholm and Malmo and in 2015 Diversify changed its name to Webstep. In 2013 a division for Business Intelligence was created in Bergen and the following year a development department was in place in Kristiansand.
Digitized times – 2015 and forward
We live in a perfect era surrounded by anything digital and digitized. The tools, the experiences, and our ability to capture and restart everything is well established within Webstep and our strength is our ability to turn a customer’s technical opportunity into a business reality. We live in and with the development of all technical opportunities.
In 2015 we added Internet of Things to our key focus areas which centers around the cloud, mobility, machine learning, robotics, analytics, and more. Our hands-on competence in technology, across platforms, and our close relationships with our clients, create opportunities. We live in the age of digitalization and Webstep is at the forefront.
