So, what's our story?

Thirty years in the business is a long time, especially for a software company. We don't like to blow our own trumpet, but you can bet that we've only been around so long because we've evolved, listened to our clients and delivered exceptional products.

Explore our timeline to see where we began, where we are, and where we plan on going.

1983

Robotics & Manufacturing

BYG Systems started life in 1983 as a software house, nestled in Nottingham University's Science Park. Our trio of directors got down to the business of making a name for the company in the robotics and manufacturing industry. It wasn't long before we were developing cutting-edge 3D simulation systems for major clients and research Universities.

 
1985

Gathering momentum

By the mid-1980s we were working flat-out to produce exciting technology, attending conferences and shows to demonstrate our robotics and simulation software.

 
1989

Evolution

By 1989, we'd evolved and diversified into new media, developing and supplying authoring tools to create Computer Based Training. With our talented pool of staff and willingness to change with the world, we expanded into providing educational services: our first foray into e-learning as it is known today.

 
1990s

Forward thinking

Continued growth in the 1990s resulted in major projects in Governmental, Finance, Retail, Healthcare and Telecommunications sectors. Our unique blend of experience of strong learning design, software, simulation and 3D virtual reality allowed us to craft solutions in learning and assessment, which other companies were unable to do.

Old habits...

Whilst we spend most of our day producing exciting blends of e-learning, we still keep a toe in the robotics industry, with clients based in UK and US. In fact, you can still check out our robotics simulations today.
