Bringing with him over 25 years of experience, Perninder set the ambitious goal of becoming the Midlands leading SME & MSB Software Development provider and employer, with a focus on delivering impactful and exceptional work across the region to both the public & private sector.

In 2020 Perninder expanded Imobisoft’s partner base across the NHS – as well as new relationships with GSK, Don’t Waste Your Money & Hi-force. Working with emerging technology means the learning never stops, yet Imobisoft have placed an emphasis on furthering their software engineering team specialisms in Machine Learning and AI.
