CREATING BETTER SOFTWARE SINCE 1999
SemaTree builds custom enterprise-level mobile apps, web applications and customer portals. Since the very beginning, our focus has always been to get to know each customer's unique and often complex business process requirements and then to work together to deliver applications that make a real and valuable impact on their business. This intimate partnership with our customers helps produce applications that:
- Increase efficiency and productivity
- Integrate easily with other systems
- Facilitate communication and transparency with colleagues or customers
- Adapt to unique needs by role, department or region
- Deploy rapidly and scale just as quickly
In today's competitive market, software is a critical tool that helps our customers out-innovate other players in their industry. We've adapted our technology and methodology to remove the speed bumps that are common in traditional software development processes in order to focus on real solutions and measurable improvements to the challenges our customers face.
SemaTree was first founded as a custom CRM development firm by Michael J. Hils and A. Adam Devoe. Originally based in Haverhill, Massachusetts, we shifted to a fully distributed model in 2014 where each team member now works remotely.
This approach enables us to secure the best talent around the globe and to expand our team as needed to accommodate large implementations for our customers whose users often span multiple continents. Our team has regularly included experts from locations as far as New Zealand, the Ukraine, and India as well as throughout the United States.
Our technologies through the years have changed from EJB frameworks to Red Hat JBoss J2EE to our current application stack including AngularJS and RESTEasy. We've relied on our partnership with Red Hat since 2006 as the leading open source platform for modern and dynamic applications.
Along the way, we’ve gained valuable cross-industry experience, adopted evolving technologies and incorporated best practices that enable us to effectively develop, implement and optimize your most critical projects. Our relentless focus of optimization has yielded two key components of our delivery process:
- Modern, reliable software development tools for production, testing and communication
- Continuous delivery methodology for nimble development
Together, this combination has helped our customers achieve a high level of project quality, while mitigating risk throughout the project lifecycle.
By combining traditional, agile and continuous delivery methodologies with evolving best practices and our own experience, we’ve created a flexible, iterative development approach that adapts to the requirements gathering process.
In addition, we’ve customized stages of the methodology to include tools and techniques that help reduce or eliminate some typical bottlenecks within the process. In collaboration with subject matter experts, it results in an accurate understanding of the requirements and agreed-upon deliverables for the project.
Our customers include a broad range of industries from academia to information technology services to the product testing and certification companies.
The string that ties most of our customers together is a document-centric culture where converting to electonic storage of information as well as files make a significant improvement to their efficiency and customer delivery time. Over the years, this has become a specialty of ours at SemaTree, and we are well versed in the challenges of global access to applications and collaboration of multiple users working together on the same records.
Some of our customers include:
SemaTree built Oracle's "Ask the expert" module, where customers submit questions or technical support requests.

Companies utilizing this application include Verizon Wireless, NSTAR (the electric and gas utility for over 1.4 million residences in Massachusetts), the Government of Venezuela's Ministry of Science, Technology, and Industries, and HSBC bank.
Intertek Group plc is a leading testing, inspection and certification provider and is well known for their ETL Listed mark applied to consumer and industrial products in the US.
