Our mission is to support and enhance TACTIC deployments of any complexity throughout the world!
Southpaw offers this global support through various support packages, commercial licenses, proprietary solutions, onsite and offsite professional services.
Southpaw was founded in 2005 by Gary Mundell and Remko Noteboom, two veterans of the computer graphics (CG) industry. Their business sprung from the founders’ extensive experience developing software solutions and production pipelines for the Media and Entertainment (M&E) market.
It was through this work that they recognized the need for a system that was powerful enough to manage thousands of digital assets as they moved through their digital lifecycle, intuitive enough to keep teams organized and focused on their tasks, and flexible enough to support most digital workflows. And so TACTIC was born.
In 2012, Southpaw made TACTIC open source in order to easily get it into the hands of the global Enterprise community so that they could start using it to develop their own internal workflow solutions without upfront licensing and sales barriers. Southpaw maintained the role of support and services to guide and assist in TACTIC deployments.
Southpaw also started its Southpaw Solutions group to ensure that anyone using TACTIC could leverage the software to its fullest extent. TACTIC is now being used as a true Smart Process Application across thousands of companies and organizations to create everything from digital asset management (DAM) systems, to order fulfillment systems, to production and project management (PM) systems. Customers include Nissan, Procter and Gamble, Lockheed Martin, Philips, Legend3D, Blohm and Voss, Saatchi and Saatchi, Viacom, Astral Media, Bell Helicopter and many others.
