Snowflake Suite has been leading the multi-touch software industry for years and it gets better by the day

3 years ago, In October 2008, NUITEQ launched the first version of Snowflake Suite, which by then had already been developed for over a year.

The award-winning off the shelf multi-touch software product throughout all these years has been undergoing major improvements and additions, to ensure that it remained the number #1 multi-touch software solution in the world.

Of course lately more and more companies are coming up with their own software solutions as they see the massive value that Snowflake offers, so its great to see that Snowflake inspires other companies, which will help validate the industry.

With key unique benefits such as quality, performance, stability, customizability, ease of use and ridiculously dedicated support, NUITEQ will continue to strive to give customers and partners the best possible solution available.

Thank you for making this possible.

Below you find the entire history of improvements and additions since its initial launch of version 1.0:
