Couto Solutions was founded in 2004 by our CEO Justin Couto to deliver custom web based software solutions to Enterprise Organizations. In July of 2005 Justin partnered with Billy Souza to leverage his expertise in network infrastructure design and management. The formation of this partnership created an agile company that could design, develop, and deploy custom scalable software solutions.
Couto Solutions went on to deliver custom world class ERP systems that managed product inventory, warehouse and shipping logistics, product sales forecasting, on and offline sales tracking, analytics on the effectiveness of marketing, and so much more. In addition to developing this software, Couto Solutions designed, deployed, and managed the networks and server infrastructures required to run these scalable solutions. This included everything from single server deployments, to load balanced web farm multi-server systems, to complete virtual server auto failover setups.
As the SaaS (Software As A Service) industry began to take shape, Couto Solutions saw huge benefits in leveraging SaaS services to extend the custom web software solutions they were already providing. As a result, they began integrating ... continue reading below

In 2006 Couto Solutions began seeing a major push for community driven elements in the web sites they were delivering. The growing popularity of social networks such as MySpace, Facebook, and LinkedIn was prompting web site owners to want to use these social techniques to develop their own social spaces.
In 2007, as the social phenomenon started to take hold, Couto Solutions’ community software development services went into overdrive. At the time, Couto Solutions already had software in place that was driving ½ million plus member communities. Through this experience, they quickly realized the challenges behind developing these rich social web applications and wanted an easier, more consistent way of doing so. They were looking for a platform that contained common functionality that could be extended, manipulated, and tailored to the needs of any client. Enter Telligent Community.
After trying several emerging community development platforms, Couto Solutions chose Telligent Community as the platform they would develop on. There were many reasons for this choice, but it ultimately came down to the elegant way Telligent Community allowed them to extend it while still maintaining an upgrade path.
In 2008 after developing several social sites on the Telligent Community platform and becoming a certified Telligent Partner, Couto Solutions began to see a need for several common add-ons that would give Telligent Community a rich new feature set. Shortly thereafter, Couto Solutions began executing their plan to become the premier Telligent Partner by creating pluggable, easy to install software called Building Blocks for Social Networks™.
In August 2009, Couto Solutions launched their new Telligent focused web presence and publically announced their plan to be everything Telligent. Couto Solutions proudly offers an array of Telligent Community Building Blocks, Telligent Community Support Services, Telligent Community Hosting, Telligent Community Branding, Telligent Community Customization, and Telligent Community Consulting. Couto Solutions is the Telligent partner that can pick up where Telligent leaves off.
