A slightly different about us page
Very often, when reading About Us pages, you will be surprised at the amount of fluff that is added to them. This About Us page starts with our Founder, Antonie Geerts, introducing himself and his signature honest and direct run-through of the journey in creating what Seditio is today.
I’m Antonie Geerts and I founded Seditio Limited in Ireland in 2014. After working in the IT industry for over 10 years and seeing how other agencies do it, I was confident we could create a much better agency that offers a lot more transparency and real value to our clients.
About the Seditio
Starting an agency at the age of 30 with a 1-year-old to feed, living in an expensive city such as Dublin, and having virtually no savings on hand was a challenge. On top of that, some ex-colleagues probably wanted me to fail. This struggle and initial hardship helped shape our agency. With the support of our first clients, Trevor, Deirdre, Una (you know who you are), I managed to get some small projects that kept the lights on.
Because they trusted in me, in delivering a solution that is best for them, and by always being honest and transparent on our approach, the “I” turned into a “We”. Hiring freelance consultants for certain aspects of any project kept us growing and allowed us to accept bigger and larger contracts. So much so, that in 2017, I opened up a second office in Cebu, the Philippines. Here, we could afford to take on bigger projects while remaining competitive in pricing. On top of that, we could develop our own solutions, tinker, and play around with the latest technologies and eventually implement everything we learned into our client projects.
To date, we have developed 4 Commercial Cloud-based solutions for our various clients. These range from Reputation Management Platforms, Property Management, and Airport Management Systems. We use cutting-edge technologies at all times from machine learning, AI, and prediction modeling systems to worldwide cloud solutions and integrations.
Now, many years later, there is a true About “US” in Seditio with an amazing team of skilled developers, designers, project managers, and more. Writing this, I’m looking forward to our coming years and adding to the next set of timelines in the About Us section.
