About us

No mission statement, just mission: a foolproof product.

Hexis is an IT agency with a flexible team dedicated to digital excellence. Now, let’s expand on this tweet-size biography a bit.

Our expertise arsenal consists of various software design and development services that work seamlessly across all platforms, be it mobile or desktop. We are experienced in e-commerce projects, IT consulting, mobile apps development, booking systems, etc. - but those are just means to an end. Our approach is to begin with an end and create whatever* it takes to reach it.

We do business in person. Being enviably situated in Croatia, within a day or two we can sit in your European conference room and go through the project details in English, German or Italian. Our biggest reference is the fact that we acquire new clients by the word of mouth - or to be more specific - the word of our work. Check it out.

Hexis is startup-friendly. We are not impressed by the size of the client, but the quality of each project, regardless of its magnitude. We take all work seriously and give it our full attention. No project is too small or too big, and we are sure yours is just right.

Flexibility is our middle name (some of our clients even nicknamed us “Flexis”). Our relatively small team and numerous associates can adapt to practically any situation and most of the deadlines. The skills we possess are at your disposal and you can outsource them short-term or long-term. Meet the team...

* within the IT industry, no immoral proposals please
