SoftwareOne milestones

SoftwareOne (originally Softwarepipeline) was started in 2000 by two Swiss entrepreneurs helping organisations buy and manage their software licenses. Since those humble beginnings, the company has grown to over 9,250 employees in 90 countries offering end-to-end software and cloud solutions.

While the company and its portfolio of services has grown, the same entrepreneurial spirit lives on. The seven core values that our late founder Patrick Winter created are brought to life daily by SoftwareOne employees.
