Advanced Research Team

Our Advanced Research Team is responsible for applied research that continuously delivers our next generation of products. At SageTea Software, we know that our clients don’t always have time to look ahead at what is coming. Our mission is to serve our partners and their clients by always being ahead of the curve when it comes to technology and the competition. We achieve this by leveraging past successful technologies, or new technologies and finding innovative ways to employ them.

We have a strong track record on innovation and this is something our customers value.

We achieve improved efficiencies in business by employing all kinds of technology in ways that no one has thought of before. We invent our own advanced solutions starting with the state of the art – and going beyond it. We observe the markets and continuously work to anticipate the future needs of our customer base. Our innovation strategy includes performing pre-commercial innovation work to produce and test solution prototypes and initial product versions. The Advanced Research Team supports funding through the Build In Canada Innovation Program.
