Our Story So Far

From having an idea to enjoying a pork pie we have come a long way in a short time...

  • September 2015

    A discussion amongst engineers raises the idea that a lot of engineering calculations that are undertaken as part of our job could easily be turned into an app as opposed to a spreadsheet...

  • October 2015

    So it begins... Early October whilst eating a porkpie at lunch, and deciding it was more important to start writing apps than over thinking a company name..., we register our company as 'Pork Pie Software'.

  • October 2015

    After finding that the .com domain was already owned we hastily purchased the .kiwi and .co.nz web domains together with creating a basic website on our .kiwi domain. Although we checked if the domain was in use, well typed 'porkpiesoftware.com' into a browser, we did not check if it was already registered.... It was... Enough money had been spent so we ran with the local .kiwi and .co.nz domains...

  • February 2016

    We finally launch our first app Transformer Pie. We are now an app development company!

  • April 2017

    We strike a deal and purchase the porkpie software.com domain.
