We deliver complete technology solutions for all our customers.

Emergent Software was born from Emergent Networks (now Presidio), a local IT professional and managed services company. Our roots go back to 2003 where our co-founders teamed up with Emergent Networks to deliver software solutions for their growing customer base. By 2015, the demand for our team's services was so great that we decided to spin off as our own company. Our team has been rocking the local software professional services market ever since, and has quickly become a top-rated local software development company by publications such as the Minneapolis/St Paul Business Journal and Clutch.co.

The Emergent Software team has been building custom software systems, crafting complex websites, and optimizing SQL databases for over 15 years. Our comprehensive technical expertise and our lean management approach to projects makes us the perfect partner for engineering complex systems and applications that other development firms don’t have the technical depth to deliver well. Let’s make sure your project is done right the first time. Contact Emergent Software Today!
