Axian Background


Axian's Origins

Axian, Inc. was founded in 1991 as a software consulting firm by a group of software engineers and computational scientists.  After operating for five years as CETech, Inc., the company merged with A:>SOFTWARE.HLP, a premier software training company, and became Axian, Inc.  The combined backgrounds and expertise in computing technologies span many generations of languages and architectures.  Axian has developed software and provided on-site staffing for companies in the U.S., Europe and Asia.

Axian's Services and Business Model

Axian's staff of software developers are available on a contract or project basis to provide the specific skills and expertise required by our clients.   Project teams can be formed or individual software developers assigned to staff our clients' engineering projects, either at Axian's office or at a client's site.

Axian's consulting and contract engineering services are complemented by a series of technical training courses.  The training group is focused on helping software developers and computer users learn to program in a variety of languages and operating environments, and to use and administer various systems.  Classes can be held at Axian's Training Center in Beaverton, at PCC's Computer Education Centers, or at any customer's location worldwide.
