About Us

Pendar Labs is a Canadian software development company, based in Vancouver, British Columbia. We build apps that live on the web, on your smartphone, or on your tablet. We build with efficiency and ease of use in mind, and we are very goal-oriented. Read on to see how we can help you, or check out what we’ve done for others.

Do you have a million dollar idea for a startup but don’t have the coding chops?

Talk to us. We love working with startups. In fact, we ARE a startup; we love building products for ourselves as well as our clients. We can help you validate your idea and build a plan to launch & validate that saves you lots of time and money.

Do you deal with a lot of mundane paperwork in your job or business? Do you spend too much time working with big, intimidating spreadsheets?

We help organizations save significant time and man power by automating their existing workflows. We’ve built process automation tools for multi-million dollar entreprises that eliminate paperwork and streamline workflows. If you deal with tons of repetitive papers or if you use Excel on a daily basis, chances are we can make your life easier.

Why Pendar Labs?

We started this business so we can do what we love doing and do it with people we love doing it with. We’re a small team and plan on keeping it that way. What that means to you is that rather than working with a disinterested agency, you get to be in face-to-face contact with everyone who works on your project. We are much more interested in establishing long-term, meaningful relationships with our clients than just taking their money.
