Arcanys is a Swiss software development outsourcing firm in the Philippines.
Founded in Cebu City in 2010 by a team of serial entrepreneurs, and benefiting from the extraordinary skills of Filipino tech professionals, our company focuses on bringing businesses closer to users.
Arcanys helps technology teams start, experiment, evolve, and scale by hiring and training the best software developers in the Philippines. We specialize in developing high-quality software for startups and established businesses, with a keen focus on innovation.
We have a passion for enabling business creation for people with fresh ideas. Over the years, Arcanys has grown from a classic software outsourcing company into an engine for launching new ventures and business ideas, propelling many startups off the ground and accelerating SMEs’ development process.
Through our investment initiative Arcanys Labs, we help startups grab a strong competitive advantage and be on the market as soon as possible, attracting bigger investments and generating revenue earlier.
Born and raised in Switzerland, both Alan and Fred fell in love with technology long before the Internet became mainstream and had spent their entire careers in mostly e-commerce and software projects.
Leaving the comforts of Switzerland for Spain in 2001, Alan co-founded and ran an online video game startup, which later expanded to Hong Kong in 2003. It grew to have 350 customer service and software development staff, one million customers in a year, $90 million in revenue, and received over $80 million of VC investments.
In 2009, Fred joined Alan on his second venture in Hong Kong, after spending many years working in mergers as well as acquisition and reorganization projects for a top financial organization in Switzerland. Before then, he also monitored outsourcing suppliers as a corporate buyer and became the youngest IT board member of a listed company at age 25.
A year later, Alan and Fred moved their second venture to the Philippines, and the perfect marriage of entrepreneurial experience and passion for tech led to the creation of Arcanys.
