Our story

The market pushed us to build a solution for its bottlenecks.

A customs broker contacted Sifty's founders to explain an operational bottleneck he wanted to avoid solving in the same way that his competitors do. Usually by increasing staff and diminishing their revenue.

Sifty's approach was to analyse the customs brokers data to be able to reduce the time they spent on mundane and repetitive tasks.

Through a combination of experience in international trade, data science and working with industry partners, Sifty began to build products that immediately solved long standing problems within international trade and logistics.

Sifty's founders dislike repetitive tasks.

When they encounter anything like it,  Oscar and Julio immediately spend time coding something to reduce the burden of repeating the same task over and over.

Our customers constantly have to repeat low-cognitive activities; due to the vast amount of information, humans cannot remember and recognise data patterns as efficiently as computers do.

Oscar Morales

For Northern Ireland's sake, we need to redefine Special Economic Zones.

Can we talk about Northern Ireland as a Special Economic Zone… again? In September 2019, a few months before Brexit, the Financial Times reported on the possibility of treating Northern Ireland as a Special Economic Zone. Three years later, Northern Ireland's trade is still up for debate.
