Interview

Q : Describe your company in 5 words.
A : Professional, responsive, collaborative, friendly, innovative

Q : Where do you see your company in 10 years time?
A : I would hope to expand to be a reasonable size without being an enormous monolithic software house. I would hope that we would still be working with customers we have now and I would hope that we had managed to help expand their businesses. I would hope that the company would still retain it's friendliness and customer-centred ethos.

Q : How was your company name chosen?
A : Nothing that clever here, we took the word designs and decided to spell it differently. This gave the name Dazines. We thought it was a nice name and pretty easy to remember. It was also not ridiculously long, plus the domain name was available. This made it a good choice for us.
