Ion Wave Technologies, Inc. (IWT) is a Web and Internet software development company providing web-based software applications for education, government, and the private sector. IWT’s uniqueness is found in our common sense approach to our software products, development approach, business model, and method of delivery. IWT applications are a balance between the need to solve problems in the short term while providing for future growth, an equilibrium between proven systems and new technologies.

Software As A Service (SaaS)
IWT’s Software as a Service model provides a complete solution for a fixed annual fee. IWT assumes the responsibility for providing the application, database software, server equipment, internet connectivity, security, and backup of the system. The SaaS model includes installation of upgrades and patches. Clients administer and operate the application using a standard web browser.
IWT has chosen Microsoft’s .Net development platform to be the foundation on which we build our software solutions. We have been developing on the .Net platform since the early beta releases in 2001. For more information about the advantages of the .Net platform, access Microsoft’s website at: www.microsoft.com/NET/.Using the software simply requires a current web browser.
Ion Wave Technology’s software applications annually transact billions of dollars in procurement spend. Ion Wave Technologies, Inc. (IWT) was formed in May 2002 after purchasing the key assets of Way2Bid, another electronic procurement company. As part of Way2Bid, IWT’s founders were responsible for technology that facilitated the first Internet-based, interactive electronic bid events in August of 1997. Since that time, we have successfully transitioned from PC-based software to what is now our seventh generation web-based enterprise application. In the decades we have been developing electronic procurement solutions, we have assembled a first class team of software developers and support staff, enabling us to deliver high quality software and support to the market.
