As global enterprises with complex systems of record struggled to find the right resources for projects and initiatives, our founders set out to build an application development company that focused on building application solutions specifically for ERPs; offering patented technology to help bring innovative solutions to the Edge. ERP systems used within field services, plants, factories, and other supply chain job functions and roles struggled to meet Edge availability and prevented companies from operating efficiently - leaving little room for innovation.
As a result, Pillir (formerly appsFreedom) was turned into a reality - an effective, Edge-ready, rapid application development platform for ERP customers was born. Since its inception, Pillir’s mission has been to disrupt the status quo of ERP customers having to live with inefficient, legacy business systems and provide a modernization solution that supports multi-generational workers and ever-changing economic demand.
Originating as a simple code-generation tool, EdgeReady Cloud is developed into a cloud-native, system-agnostic, rapid application development platform that supports the discovery and conversion of legacy code via Pillir's patented EdgeReady plug-in.
Pillir helps companies discover technical debt as well as convert legacy workflows and applications into modernized solutions. Pillir's EdgeReady Cloud provides ERP users with native integration into existing complex enterprise applications and the ability to test them on any device, on any network, and in any connectivity landscape.
Applications built or modernized using the EdgeReady Cloud can also be deployed as fully hosted SaaS applications, allowing customers to service application development and deployment needs - while only utilizing one solution.
Pillir’s culture is unique. We support a creative and transparent work environment, expecting honesty, integrity and accountability from the top, down.
Pillir supports the idea that we shouldn't try to be right, but to instead discover what is right. We believe that finding answers that empower our team and customers, allowing them to be successful, also allows us to create smoother channels of communication and smart solutions for all.
We love and appreciate our employees, vendors, and partners and believe that they're family.
We thrive on diversity and culture in our work community and beyond. Pillir supports a transparent, honest, and integrity-filled workplace that embraces change and supports growth.
We love our global communities and support efforts to make the world within them a better place. Our teams reside in communities around the globe and we strive to serve each in ways that drive innovation and development.
We love cutting-edge technology. Supported by knowledge experts with decades of experience from around the globe, our team wouldn’t think of working in any other industry.
We are a customer centric organization focused on driving positive outcomes for clients.We discuss problems and create solutions - taking ownership of our customer’s use case and providing tangible solutions and value - only charging for fully optimized and built solutions (MAU pricing model).
If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together. Pillir believes in establishing a network of trust and commitment to success. Pillir expects partners to be as obsessive as they are about providing customers with real, tangible and valuable modernization solutions.
