ComTrade’s journey began 20 years ago with a simple idea: to build reliable software solutions for the world’s most sophisticated technology vendors. We began working with Hewlett Packard (HP), helping their in-house development teams to bring products to market faster.

We worked with Research and Development groups, supporting the development process at every step. And with each new product release the team was increased with top engineers until we became a true partner of one of the world’s largest technology companies – HP.

This year we have upgraded our cooperation with HP and took opportunity to develop a services business. New area of cooperation is HP Consulting Services to support HP partners in direct sales and help them to grow.

We offer consulting services only through existing HP partner network and provide skilled resources as an extension of partners’ competence teams. Our self contained and fully managed teams are capable to provide end-to-end solutions.
