  About Tak-Soft (ENG) 
About Tak-Soft (ENG)

I use alias "Tak-Soft" since 1990 as label of my products. Today I have about 20 years experience in PC programming and IT solutions. I wrote my first program in 1987 for MSX computers. During these years I have wrote many smaller programs for personal use and for special solutions.

My slogan is: "Good programs with good price".

I have specialized for developing IT and timekeeping solutions orienteering events. First program I wrote for sport already 1991. First national event where my programs are used was Ilves-3 in 1994. Today Tak-Soft has 95% from orienteering software market in Estonia. All major events are using software for timekeeping developed by me.

I have also registered company in Estonia - OÜ Tak R&D (in English: Tak R&D plc.). Company is founded already in 1995. Company main fields are: programming, digital electronic designs and services for sport events.
