What sets us apart? We go beyond coding!

What makes us unique from conventional software companies is our hands-on experience. Throughout our history at OpenXcell, we have not only worked with a number of startups to achieve their vision but also nurtured our own ideas successfully. We have developed our own 4 products from scratch and have made them a huge success.

One such success is Orderhive, an eCommerce product that stood out in the market and caught the attention of CIN7, resulting in a significant acquisition in February, 2021. Adding another feather to our cap, we developed Speed, a leading Bitcoin payment processor. Through Speed’s massive success, we have become an expert startup software development company.

Over this journey, we have weathered the highs and lows of startup product development – from ideation to development to fundraising and everything in between. Hence, we do not just develop software products but guide you throughout the entire process as well. Post-development, we advise you on launch strategy as well as help you raise funds through our large network.
