It all started 30 years ago, in 1991...
In 2021 SoftNet celebrates the 30th anniversary of its presence on the Polish market. The past years are the history of systematic and consistent development as well as maintenance of the company's continuity. It is hard to believe that 30 years have already passed since the first invoice was issued.
In its founding documents, the company was established on 18 January 1991. During three decades the market has been changing dynamically, a lot has happened in the company, in the country, and in the world - for SoftNet this time has been a constant challenge.
The mother of invention
The SoftNet company was established on the initiative of four designers and programmers who previously had experience in creating computer systems for banks and other institutions. The basic assumption that guided the establishment of the company was to organize a software house producing software for the banking and financial sector.
The founders developed their own software package designed for bank operations, known on the market as BankNet. This is how a comprehensive system for automating all banking operations was created. Soon, the commercial offer was enriched with the delivery of computer hardware. In 1997, the BankNet system was the first to be recommended by the Accountants Association in Poland as regards its compliance with the Accountancy Act and other regulations issued by the President of the NBP.
Along with the development of the company, the growth of the number of employees, and the number of banks served, the scope of services offered increased. Very quickly the BankNet system was transformed into today's multi-currency EuroBankNet system and then into the modern EuroBankNet Plus NT.
