Bloatware is a very specific type of software, and as you can imagine not a very flattering term.

There are a number of ways we avoid becoming tenured as bloatware-wallahs – primarily by our support and update based business model, combined with our cloud based software-as-a-service offering.

In order to charge for software updates, some software development companies often add features willy nilly in order to justify charging clients for the upgraded product. Our philosophy is entirely the opposite and using our cloud based digital asset management platform to host your digital files, you’ll see we can push updates all day long without ever trying to charge a single penny extra.
