Why Choose Susco

Susco is headquartered in the Greater New Orleans Area, has a national remote workforce, and is one of the fastest-growing tech companies in the US (we are 2019, 2020, 2021, and 2022 Inc 5000 honorees). We develop custom web-based business software with a focus on legacy system conversions.  Our primary development platforms are C# .NET for web services and Ionic/Cordova for mobile apps.

We’re fans of the American Dream, and therefore operate as a compassionate meritocracy which treats all stakeholders (employees, clients, vendors, and the community) based on tenants of conscious capitalism.
