The Waverley Story

In 1989, Matt Brown’s four year old startup created in the basement of Brown University was acquired by Claris, Apple Computer’s software spin-off run by Bill Campbell. Campbell’s team moved the Clearview Software group to Silicon Valley from Providence Rhode Island. Matt’s application, SmartForms, was published by Claris after MacWrite, MacPaint and MacDraw and was a prototype for the successful FileMaker database product that has existed for many years.  Matt’s dedication to developing great software still continues to this day with some of the original Clearview team who depend on Waverley for their new startups, products and ideas.

By 1992, Matt founded Waverley Software to help his friends in the Valley build startups and advance existing businesses with innovative software. Waverley started to build early generation mobile software for well-known tech giants in Silicon Valley, and became one of the pioneers of mobile development. Matt worked on the Newton OS at Apple with some of the original Macintosh development team, and built apps for PenPoint, Palm OS, Windows CE and other first generation platforms. Matt named the company after his first address in Palo Alto. As a one-man operation, Matt delivered the attention each client needed to be successful. Waverley’s products were built with pride and care that those who worked for and recommended Matt could always count on.

In 1998, Waverley had more projects than one person could manage. Matt began to assemble his US team of the best tech people and managers and continued to build software and client relationships on his core values of reliability, trust, and commitment to excellence. Over 25 years later, Matt and his original team are still the heart of the company. Today – just like 25 years ago-  Matt continues to engage the best talent for his company.

In 2004 Waverley decided to take advantage of offshore development economics and harnessed its US operation to offshore companies that offered talent and lower costs. The resulting team, bigger and more diverse, began to work on larger projects. But over time it became clear that some values were being compromised. Working with external companies made it difficult to consistently guarantee delivery of the experience Matt wanted for his customers.

In 2012 and 2013, Waverley opens its own development centers in Ukraine and Vietnam to be able to run a customer-focused business with offshore engineering value. Waverley builds an integrated, no-compromise process and team allowing clients to experience what software development should be like. Today, a global integrated team of over 100 people in Ukraine and 20 in Vietnam along with the management team in the US deliver mission-critical assignments to high-tech companies and businesses that rely on technology in the US and beyond.
