Founded in the year 2007 by Yasser Bashir, Arbisoft was the successor to Yasser’s first company named DeepPixels which handled only post-processing of 3D medical images. DeepPixels still continues to do work on a smaller scale. Arbisoft came to life after the team started experimenting with software development services which bore more profitable results. Consequently, Arbisoft grew into a prominent company that it is today.
The first fully-owned product they’ve released is Intellistats, an app that analyses your phone usage, locates patterns and uses that information to tell you what carrier and plan is adequate for your daily usage. This venture was made possible because Arbisoft aims to establish themselves as an enabling platform for their own people, readily encouraging independent projects so that their employees may have the opportunity to grow by taking advantage of Arbisoft’s extensive resources.
