In the 2000s, the future founders of the company created information products for text-related activities in formal languages in international companies like Sun Microsystems, Intel or Oracle.

Meanwhile a demand had evolved in Russia, for a tool allowing to work with card-type global records — one-piece text blocks or other data used simultaneously in an unlimited number of processes. Foreign software using global records is renowned in specific niche markets and is operated mainly by the military industry and expert communities. Our task was to develop a similar product for Russia retaining its best properties.
