Southpaw Technology

Our story began in the movies. By 2005, digital assets had become the backbone of the movie and entertainment business. Companies were struggling to manage skyrocketing volumes of digital content and increasingly complex acquisition, production, storage, and distribution processes. The name Southpaw was chosen because of the well documented technical advantage of being left handed in many sports and even in hand to hand combat! The left-handed founders launched Southpaw Technology to solve these problems to give our clients a similar technical advantage.

Today, we provide intelligent process orchestration solutions that enable enterprises to achieve significant, quantifiable business improvements. Customers gain end-to-end visibility and control over information as it is created, used, and changed throughout—and across—complex enterprise processes. We customize these solutions utilizing our unified, open-source TACTIC platform combined with proprietary Southpaw products.

For more than a decade, our technology and service delivery expertise have optimized time to market and efficiency, reduced risk, and unleashed employee creativity for Fortune 500 and other leading companies.

Our TACTIC intelligent process orchestration platform has enabled customers to resolve business-critical workflow and asset tracking challenges:

  • Accelerating time to market for new products and services for market advantage
  • Meeting customer requirements and exceeding expectations to drive customer satisfaction and retention
  • Increasing process efficiency, accuracy, and accountability across many different enterprise functions
  • Supporting compliance requirements, such as FINRA, GLB, SOX, PCI, GDPR, HIPAA, and others, with improved visibility and accountability for assets
  • Increasing process security to protect intellectual property, sensitive data, and employees
  • Gaining significant process improvements while augmenting existing technology investments and without disruption
  • Preventing vendor lock-out and platform obsolescence with proven, enterprise-grade open source platform

TACTIC applications are being used 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.

TACTIC is what finally brought our workflow out of the dark ages

TACTIC is what finally brought our workflow out of the dark ages and these days, we wouldn't be without it. As soon as we sat down with Southpaw it was clear that their product was born out of real world needs by industry veterans and was created to be flexible and adaptive enough to scale to any production. As we've continued to work with Southpaw over the years, we have come to appreciate how extremely agile and responsive they've been to our needs - as well as how frequently they implement product enhancements.
