16 years ago when Karl Rodriguez decided to leave the established job, friends and family members stood against it. Everyone thought that his head was just screwed. It was added to the problems of livelihood. Karl was slightly upset in all.

When contacted by the supermarket company, Karl was still in the basement. He said, "They could not believe that I am alone in the basement office. They wanted to talk to the marketing officer. Later, I changed my voice and started talking to another person.
SOITI never wanted to sell the whole software system. Instead, they themselves wanted to provide full service. The company believes it is possible to improve the software. 


Many people do not know about this company. Because, as a client, he chose companies more than individuals. Now the company gives eight million dollars in revenue every year. And the entire company's owner Karl and his wife. Money was not taken from any outside investor. In 2006, Microsoft wanted to acquire it. Carl gave back the offer of alluring

Karl completed his studies in computer science and engineering from the University of Toronto. After several years he worked as a consultant in a company. After this, the pressure on the head itself is something to do. Now his company has more than $ 100 million worth. Under him, 700 workers were working in 22 countries.
The story of the basement but not yet finished. Yet it is the center of all the work of Karl's company. However, the official head office was kept in two separate buildings.
