About us:

Founded in 1998 by software engineers, Breakthrough Technologies (BT) builds web applications, K-12 and professional assessment solutions to address a wide variety of complex problems. In addition to assessments, we develop custom web applications when out-of-the-box solutions don't offer what a client truly needs or wants.

For our clients, we won't redirect to mainstream, costly technology in order to find a solution to problems. We will communicate though to develop a smart, creative solution using open-source products that perfectly fit their needs.

We leverage proven platforms, such as TAO and Drupal. We also deliver JavaScript, Amazon Web Services (AWS), and other end-to-end services. We are 100% based in the U.S. with offices north of Chicago, right next to Northwestern University.
