Company

At Flow Pilots, we believe that the smart use of smart digital technologies will be a keydriver in the success of modern companies. That is why we don’t just develop apps. We carefully design, build, deploy and manage the digital tools that help our customers increase revenues, decrease costs or bring freedom and flexibility to their employees.

Therefore, our methodology is not limited to software development only, but covers the whole track from business case over concept, design, development, deployment and management of the applications. From an agile project perspective, we monitor the balance between flexibility and permanent commitment on a finished result.

Flow Pilots is a Belgian company, founded in 2011 and specialized in the development of user-centric and mobile applications. In our team we bring together creative, technical and business people. The combination of flexible and creative thinking with a professional approach created the perfect recipe why companies and organizations like Assuralia, Soudal, Belfius, Westtoer, Axa, Agfa, Janssen Cilag and BNP Paribas choose Flow Pilots as their mobile partner.
