Our Passion

Finally A Team As Dedicated As You!

At Lateral, we are more than just a custom software development company. We are a team of passionate problem solvers who have been working together for over a decade. Our culture is built around collaboration and dedication to enhancing our clients' projects beyond what any other agency might be able to deliver.

Our team is made up of innovators, thinkers, and solution finders who thrive on challenge. We are driven by solving problems. It's not just a job—it's our addiction. We are problem solvers and innovators who are passionate about bringing your vision to fruition.


Focused on Latest Technology
We believe that to truly deliver high-performance systems, we need to keep up with the latest technology. That's why we have embarked on a mission to become experts in new technologies and enhance how we think about custom software development. Our staff is encouraged to focus on their areas of interest, building funnels of speciality that enable us to offer our clients the best solutions possible.

Unfortunately, in our industry, most companies outsource to jurisdictions with cheaper labor. This approach is fraught with danger, as remote workers often don't fully appreciate the complexities that deliver high-performance systems, leading to short cuts or short-sighted missteps. That's why we are an in-house, Australian team of experts who are passionate about their work and have been working together for over a decade because of this passion.

Creative Solutions for Complex Challenges

At Lateral, we recognise that our clients often come to us with either an idea for a custom system or an existing system that they want to upgrade and maintain. We are specifically focused on working with clients who have big visions and real problems they want to solve, and who see us as a reliable partner who can invent solutions to what others may consider impossible challenges. Our team thrives on tackling complex challenges and coming up with creative solutions that help our clients achieve their goals.

Passionate About Delivering Results
When we discuss a really great project, we get excited about the endless possibilities of what we can do for our clients. We thrive on solving deep problems and restrictions in their businesses, and we can be the heroes that solve it. Even after delivery, we continue to think about the projects we've delivered and talk about them at barbecues. Solving problems that seem almost impossible is our passion, and it's the reason Lateral exists.
So if you're looking for a team of passionate problem solvers who are dedicated to enhancing your project beyond what you thought was possible, look no further than Lateral.

By choosing Lateral, you're not only investing in a cutting-edge software solution, but also in a proven process that will save you time, money, and stress.

Why Lateral?

Why I turned my back on a lucrative corporate career

Let me share with you how I found my passion at Lateral and how it helped to build the company into one of Australia's most trusted custom software development companies.

Escaping the Corporate World
Having worked in the corporate world, despite a comfortable job, a big salary, and bonuses, I always felt unfulfilled. I yearned for my passion, a reason to work hard, and feel excited about every day.

Building A Better Company
The opportunity to run Lateral came several years before I joined the company. The former owner had been working with me as a client, and he specifically chose me as his replacement. Although the offer wasn't as lucrative as my corporate role, the market was changing, and the need for custom software was becoming a higher priority. I saw an opportunity to turn Lateral into a world-class company.

Creating a Team of Experts
As the owner of Lateral, my passion for custom software development is what motivated me to build this company. I saw a gap in the market where poor quality work was holding companies back, and I knew that I could make a difference by creating a team of experts who were reliable, forward-thinking, and committed to excellence.

Recruiting the best in the industry was a top priority for me. I searched for innovators, thinkers, and problem solvers who were truly passionate about what they do, not just motivated by a pay-check. This team of experts has been working together for over a decade, constantly pushing each other to be better and tackling some of the most intricate and large-scale projects imaginable.

Making an Impact 
What excites me the most about custom software development is the opportunity to solve complex problems and make a real impact on my clients' businesses. Whether working with big corporations or startups. At Lateral, we have a unique opportunity to bring technology to any challenge and solve problems that may never have been done before. It's a thrill to work with such a diverse range of clients and industries, and I love the challenge of solving complex problems and creating innovative solutions that drive our client's success.

Delivering Exceptional 
I'm passionate about what we do at Lateral because we're not just another software development company. We're dedicated to delivering exceptional value to our clients, providing good advice, and solving problems that make a real difference. With our broad range of experience and expertise, we're uniquely positioned to generate fresh ideas and form new solutions that help our clients achieve a competitive advantage.

In summary, turning my back on the corporate world was the single best decision of my life. Every day is an opportunity to make a difference and deliver exceptional results that drive our client's success at Lateral.
