At WITmind we believe that there is a better way to do IT. A more beneficial, straight-forward way where customers are earned, not paid for. We have been doing it for years and our development as a company have stayed steadily since 2010. A lot has been going on through all those years but one thing lasted – our constant progress. We started as a team of professionals who love to do web solutions, broadcast services and various kinds of managed services till one day when our extensive experience in video and broadcast and passion in immersive technologies have lead us to do software and hardware solutions and services for IP, video streaming and broadcast. Nowadays our focus range varies between cloud services, high quality video content encoding, delivery and streaming to integrated web solutions.
We are extremely passionate in everything “IT” such as web and software services, specialized hardware platforms, integrated solutions and consultancy. Our mission is to help the end user achieve all his needs without any concern! The spotlight of WITmind is the state-of-the-art video content encoding and streaming directly into our high-end cloud solution. Based on our solid expertise, running software in the cloud is the future, so we centered most of our services into it. And the customers are loving it!
To be honest after everything we achieved throughout the years we’ve wanted to strengthen our organizational knowledge base more and more! So that have led to the application for several ISO certificates. After firm audit, validations and verifications we are happy to tell you that we have got them! Yes, we are ISO certified for quality, IT service management and information security! Certification is coming from DNV GL – international accredited registrar and classification society headquartered in Høvik, Norway. And as our slogan says: “Attracting Success with Mind Power!” – we attracted one of the biggest certification companies and got those certificates by using our mind power!
WITmind was founded by Georgi Plamenov in 2010 after 7 years of being an IT manager and CTO in several tech companies. The main idea was to deliver to customers software services such as web and IT solutions. Since then the company has been operating in Sofia, Bulgaria. And now WITmind has extensive experience and expertise in the following areas: Web and integrated solutions, video encoding and streaming, interactive TV solutions and broadcast consultancy; and our core cloud services.
Early growth & improvement
Our founder Georgi Plamenov has robust experience in the field of broadcasting, software development and IT management since his graduation from Technical University in Sofia, Bulgaria. This naturally has led to the fact that today he has more than 17 years of expertise in the rapidly growing IT field in Sofia, Bulgaria. Back in the days as a student he started professionally with live air programs, basic networks and WAN, workstations and servers support and management. Georgi and his team had ensured major TV shows and leading TV channels with accessible technology aligned to their existing software and hardware as well as monitoring and maintaining the process to ensure the streamline of the workflow. Alongside his team he learned how to plan and control IT budgets and expenditures. In other words, he started building and maintaining vendor relationships and managed the purchases of hardware and all sorts of software products. And as one Nescafe ad once said “one thing leads to another” he turned himself into a successful manager of the interactive, web, VoD and live streaming solutions for FIFA 2010 World Cup project for the Bulgarian National Television.
Later on he managed the project for live interactive data visualization for the 2011 election nights results for the one of the leading national TV channels. Supervising the process of creating online platform for integrating sociological agencies data, creating the interactive graphics templates, programming the interactivity and on air display which was huge success as for him as well as for all his team! After all those years of experience Georgi has one huge passion – the transformation of video technologies from traditional broadcast approach to the Internet and IP – a field in which our team operates for more than 11 years. That was the reason WITmind have developed its own cloud which has the ability to deliver high quality video encoding/transcoding and streaming solutions like no other! A pinpoint in the world of video related tech solutions!
In conclusion and from all of the above Georgi’s mindset is telling us one thing – in order to succeed do what you are best in, this is the right way. In his case, his passion – video in general is the area where he and his team prove every customer that they are flawless!
What is now and what’s next
As a true professional Georgi understands the significance of the international standards and validation. In order to be competitive on a multinational level it is of utmost importance to be ISO verified. That’s the reason why WITmind has applied for ISO international standards verification and successfully acquired them.
But let’s talk a little bit more about the ISOs. If you don’t know now you will learn that ISO creates documents that provide requirements, specifications, guidelines or characteristics that can be used consistently to ensure that materials, products, processes and services are fit for their purpose.
“ISO is an independent, non-governmental international organization with a membership of 162 national standards bodies. Through its members, it brings together experts to share knowledge and develop voluntary, consensus-based, market relevant International Standards that support innovation and provide solutions to global challenges. You’ll find the Central Secretariat in Geneva, Switzerland.”
ISO is bringing real and measurable benefits to almost every sector imaginable, standards underpin the technology that ISO rely on and ensure the quality that they expect.
“International Standards make things work. They give world-class specifications for products, services and systems, to ensure quality, safety and efficiency. They are instrumental in facilitating international trade. ISO has published 22383 International Standards and related documents, covering almost every industry, from technology, to food safety, to agriculture and healthcare. ISO International Standards impact everyone, everywhere.”
