About Unifyo

Unifyo is building clever technology that helps people focus on being productive. Our flagship product Unifyo is helping successful businesses to stay on top of their ever growing number of customer and contact relationships. Instead of them having all data scattered across multiple applications and having to trawl through all these apps, Unifyo provides a revolutionary way of bringing complete customer profiles into any application, without any extra integration work. Less time spent on searching, more time spent on business.


Our technology

Unifyo’s flagship product is written mostly in Javascript, running on a Ruby on Rails backend. Because our data is largely relational, we use a MySQL database. We also talk to a large variety of APIs, including Google, Twitter, Salesforce and Highrise, and use ETL and data mining techniques to gain insights and unify data. We aren’t afraid of legacy technologies either, including IMAP and Microsoft Exchange. We run our software in the cloud and use a variety of continuous testing and deployment tools.
