Our story

How the hummingbird took off

Extra was founded in 2006 and specializes in system integration, software development, and implementation of business software solutions. After carrying out various national and international projects, we acquired the necessary skills required to serve big clients, and compete with bigger players in the market. Our logo, the hummingbird, represents our agility and flexibility in this competitive market

At Extra, beside serving our customers we are continuously involved in hiring young talents from universities and helping them grow in their career. 



This is evident in some of our key members of the staff who started out on a thesis project and leveled up to be responsibles for a team of experts.  

Tons of collaborations to offer a complete and reliable proposal

To expand our reach and expertise we partnered with the world’s leading technological brands such as Red HatNetSuitePentahoHubSpot e Openbravo, and together with them we have helped numerous businesses across the world to solve their IT problems and prosper. In 2017 Extra’s business units spinned off as subsidiary companies to help them specialize and ease up their individual growth.
