Headquartered in NYC, Rova Software was founded in 1995 with the focus of building world-class custom enterprise software, and rapidly acquired a strong list of elite customers, particularly in the banking, finance and legal sectors. In 1999 we began building the first version of ROVA Enterprise and worked toward a launch with our pilot customer in fall of 2001 when our servers were destroyed in the Septermber 11th attacks and our launch delayed indefinitely.
Those were tough times for all of us in in NYC, and many lost far more than we did as all our team remained safe and sound. We embraced the swell of New York City pride to rebuild and did exactly that, moving uptown to a SOHO sublet loft and starting again. We did endure, and launched with that same pilot customer in 2002. Since our product was mobility management we were able help that giant company as so many thousands of their employees were displaced and had to work from remote locations, and did so easily using ROVA. This was a great source of pride for us and a validation that mobility services were the exclusive space for us for the future. We’ve been there ever since.
The product has changed a lot since then — but the core mission remains the same: provide a platform that enables carriers and their enterprise customers to ensure their mobile employees connect easily, efficiently, securely, and the most cost-effective way possible.
We're fully self funded and have been profitable since our founding. Despite our relatively small size and organically funded growth, we've always been able to secure and satisfy large clients, including some of the biggest companies and carriers in the world.
