About

Skunkwerks Software Inc. is a Vancouver, British Columbia-based software company that creates highly customized interactive database driven enterprise level rich internet applications.

The company’s first application, Laboratory Management Systems, was created for the academic biotechnology and life sciences sector. Skunkwerks has since authored numerous other software systems ranging from cable television scheduling to workflow intensive business process systems. Our expertise lies in software development consulting and our focus is on building lasting and evolving relationships with our customers. We are proud of the innovative and comprehensive data management solutions we create for our customers.

Over the last nine years, Skunkwerks has earned the confidence and loyalty of its clientele through its customer-focused approach to application scoping, design, development, implementation and training. The result of the company’s emphasis on careful planning and exceptional communications is software solutions that are designed to capture workplace efficiencies and improve productivity because they are dynamic and easy to use.

In 2012, Skunkwerks spun off Skunkwerks Kinetic, a video-game development company, which released an iPad game in 2014 and is developing a 3D sequel game in collaboration with science fiction author William Gibson.

In March 2015, Skunkwerks sold its controlling interest in its second spin-off, iClinic Inc. Originally developed for Vancouver General Hospital, iClinic continues to use the Health IT product developed at Skunkwerks.

We pride ourselves in our ability to provide customized, innovative and comprehensive data management solutions.
