About Us

CodeSmart has been locally owned and incorporated in Washington since June 2002. In 2014 we entered into co-ownership with People Tech Group (a Washington based corporation located in Redmond. WA). This relationship has allowed us to expand our capabilities using a combination of CodeSmart and People Tech resources, skills and partnerships.

Both companies provide excellence in developing custom IT solutions tailored to meet the needs of our clients. We employ highly qualified professionals with excellent technical skills and a commitment to total customer satisfaction.

Our staff have established themselves as a top resource for delivering custom IT solutions. They are highly skilled in managing, analyzing, designing, developing, and delivering full end-to-end IT solutions to enable our clients to better manage and run their organizations. We apply leading edge technologies with industry recognized standards to produce successful information systems and projects. Our IT solutions include complete and accurate documentation to expedite knowledge transfer to our clients as well as making it easier to maintain and enhance the system.

With consistent success delivering quality solutions that meet or exceed client expectations, our staff has earned an excellent reputation. They have worked hard to build great information systems and along the way have established long term relationships with our clients that have lasted long after the project has been successfully completed.
