Differentiating Factors

The company’s major differentiator is their focus on User Experience. The company has a very strong design team that allows it to take up pure design projects (for mobile or web applications) independent of who actually develops the application. While their development team can build great mobile or web applications based on specifications, their strength in UX design allows them to work with the customer from concept stage and take the application through its full lifecycle. The company is also able to collaborate with customer development teams whose core competency is server-side - e.g., BI, databases, search, etc. (essentially, not UI) with their UX skills to bring out complete mobile or web applications that have a fantastic UI/ UX to them.

Revenue Model

The company works with both Fixed Bid and T&M (Time & Materials) models for their services. For  mobile application development and any design projects, the company is happy to work under Fixed Bid model where as for long term product development projects, the company would prefer a T&M model.

Founded: 2008


Since the company’s incorporation, it has had over 20 clients ranging from large Software Product companies like SAP, Sybase, Greenplum (now EMC) to small and medium startups & post-startups like Compass Labs, MarketShare, Novatium, Finja5 etc.

Employee Count: 35-40

Investors: Divami is a boot-strapped company, so the primary investors are the co-founders mentioned above.

Road Map: The company’s vision is to build Divami into a global player in the User Experience segment focusing on software for mobile and web platforms.
