We have been closely aligned with Microsoft Corporation for the past 17 years. We are a Microsoft Gold
Partner in data platform, data analytics, and application development. In addition, MAQ Software is a
Consulting Partner for Amazon Web Services. Our customers include Microsoft Corporation, Starbucks,
and Amazon. The company employs over 500 people in three engineering centers located in Redmond,

Engineering Culture:
We foster an intense work culture with a can-do attitude. Our key managers come from excellent
educational backgrounds and have considerable experience growing the company and mentoring
software engineers. We strive to adopt the latest technologies and computing trends ahead of the larger
industry players. As a part of the company’s globally distributed engineering team, our engineers gain
exposure to the latest engineering practices. Our engineers routinely work on challenging technical
problems that utilize the latest technologies for fast-paced software delivery.
Examples of some of our projects:
 A client wanted to improve the return on investment (ROI) of marketing spend by identifying
target customers more effectively. We created an unsupervised machine learning model to
analyze customer behavior. The model combined diverse data points such as customer
demographics, browsing history, purchase patterns, and marketing channels. Using the model,
we identified a customer’s next logical purchase and the affinity to buy a particular product.
Based on this information, our client honed its target marketing campaigns and advertisements
to improve sales.
 One of our clients conducts multiple promotional events with product overview sessions. We
worked with the client to analyze the effectiveness of these events. We measured the attendee
perception by comparing pre-event and post-event surveys. We then combined survey data
with sentiment data from attendees’ Facebook posts and tweets. We created a supervised
learning model from the data along with attendee demographics, session attendance, and

increase in product sales after the event. The model helped the client measure the marketing
event’s impact on sales, the effectiveness of the sessions, and the overall change in perception
caused by the event. We later applied text analytics techniques to attendee feedback and
helped identify the core problem areas faced by attendees.
 Another client had a SQL Server, an HTML5 based Business Intelligence system with 150+
reports, 50,000 users, and more than 100 TB of data hosted on-premise. The client wanted to
transition the entire solution to the cloud to manage it better. We created the cloud transition
strategy for the client and moved the infrastructure to Microsoft Azure cloud services. As part of
the effort, we also migrated 150+ reports from HTML5 to Microsoft Power BI. As a result, we
helped the client improve management and operations. The cloud migration also improved the
agility of the entire sales and marketing organization by providing faster insights into their
customers and marketing campaigns.
