About us

In the beginning Tigase was just an XMPP server our team was working on. We listened to our clients and all the people who used Tigase. Over time we extended our software with variety of different products both server side and client side all related to real-time communication. These improvements and components has led Tigase to become one of the leading XMPP server software suites in use today.

Tigase short history

Tigase, Inc. started as an open source software project in 2004. After a while, the project attracted attention and interest from commercial companies and organizations, eventually turning into Tigase, Inc. a California company with the main office in San Francisco and another office in Poland.

Today Tigase XMPP Server is still an open source project available for free. However, our company offers a number of commercial grade modules and custom components to create a unique product for each of our clients. These allow our customers to build large and custom installation with truly specialized features. Server and server-side components are not all Tigase can offer. Our customers can benefit from our technical support in creating custom solutions on the client side, like web or mobile applications for instant communication.
