2022 highligths and here's to a fruitful 2023

First of all, a big thank you to all for your loyalty and to our new clients for doing business with us over the past 12 months. We would not be able to achieve so much without you.

2022 was a challenging year for businesses, but we remained strong and agile to provide you with pragmatic solutions.

So, how did we perform? Here are a few highlights…


  • In May, we established OVACtech, a start-up UK software development company that uses blockchain technology to solve system communication challenges, especially where organisations with disparate IT systems need to interact with one another to improve customer outcomes. We also offer a website design and developments service and provide internship and opportunities.

  • One of our first product development is Sermegon® - a cloud-based software solution that uses blockchain technology to enable disparate IT systems to exchange and make use of information in one single place without the need for complex and/or expensive integration programmes. Sermegon® centralises datasets from relevant multiple sources in one place, bringing together the necessary information required to facilitate efficient communication. Sermegon® can be of interest for the Health, Care, Security, Central Government and Aviation sectors.

  • In 2023, we will aim to increase its functionalities and focus on user needs and feedback, operations development and improved features.
