About us

A brief history...

The original OMNIX Company was created in 2006 by Ash, John and Peter, who had previously worked together and found that their views of how a software development company should be run were very similar.

Taking the plunge and jumping ship is never an easy decision but the 3 Directors of the new OMNIX Ltd business soon found that their approach was working well and attracting new business from a variety of sources.

As time went by and the business grew, it was decided to create a new part of the business that was wholly and specifically dedicated to the requirements of the software development side of the Company. As a result, OMNIX Software Solutions was launched to concentrate its efforts on the growing number of clients who were demanding our skills, products and services.
