There is an ongoing dialogue on whether the internet is a medium or a network. Whatever it is, it relies heavily on technology (programming languages, data bases, web servers, cloud computing), to deliver the goods to the end user. And we make sure that state of the art technology tools are used to do this, ensuring functionality, interactivity, performance, security, on line transactions, interoperability and connectivity with legacy systems in use, such as ERP, CRM, billing systems, SMS servers etc. All these are incorporated in Steficon’s flagship product, CORETM.
