About US

Company History

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.
