Our Story

Late in 2009 Matt Stevanus, owner of RDS, found himself in a bit of a quandary. He began wondering, How might I create a software development company from a group of geographically disparate developers and then have it perform as a well-oiled machine? The answer was easier than it might seem. Matt began the process of gathering together talented and professional ColdFusion developers to try a grand experiment: to build a company without an office; to build a company of only the finest developers in the ColdFusion community; and to build a company that would be creative, responsive, experienced, forward thinking and performance oriented. Well, several years later… mission accomplished.

What Is It That RDS Does So Well?

Simple. RDS is known industry-wide for its ability to provide creative, cost-effective and timely solutions to the most complex of business software needs. Through the vast experience of our leadership team, we are able to design applications that leverage virtually any technology known to the web landscape. While we are primarily a ColdFusion house, our expertise does not end there. We have developers on staff who are experts in many software languages such as Java, Flash/Flex, HTML5, Ruby and many others. As such, we provide full-service web application development from UI design and graphic artistry to final implementation. If you have a need, we have your solution.

Communicate. Interact. Deliver.

We are able to interact with our clients at a level rarely seen in the business community because we are built to communicate. When your entire company is dispersed geographically, you learn how to get the most out of your time spent communicating. We translate this ability we have learned internally to how we interact with our clients. Our clients have repeatedly asked us how we get so much done without being on site. Our answer? Because we know how to. We love that answer.
