Who We Are

Counterpart (formerly WDD Software) is a custom software development firm focused on tangible business impact for organizations. Based in Indianapolis, we’re on a mission to build comprehensive solutions that fundamentally change the ways in which our clients work. But just because we take development seriously doesn’t mean we won’t geek while brainstorming solutions and whiteboarding with you.

We love what we do, and we really love what we can do with our clients!

What We Do

From web applications to complex system integrations to learning management systems—and every-data-driven-thing in between—we’ve been building custom software solutions for more than two decades.

We have a full-stack team that’s technology and industry agnostic. That means we can work with organizations of all sizes and sectors to create impact that reaches across departments or an entire business. As one of Indianapolis’ oldest and most established development firms, our portfolio includes Fortune 500 corporations, associations, start-ups, non-profits, and small businesses.

 

 

The Counterpart Story

Counterpart was founded as WDD in 1993 by Alan Wlasuk, John Davis, and Reed Delporte, three former Bell Labs engineers. Since then, WDD evolved from a team of three men in a garage to a group of 20 comprised of full-stack developers, UX/UI designers, and software testers and architects. In 2013, three longtime team members—Jason Bourg, Matt James, and Tyler Smith—purchased WDD from the founders.

The new partners wanted to emphasize the team’s abilities beyond coding. At the time, the three had a combined 35 years with WDD, and along with others in the company, had honed their expertise as tech consultants and developers with minds for full-business solutions. In addition, they wanted to take on a cause with big impact: youth mentoring. In this way, WDD could pay it forward to the community, and pay homage to the founders who mentored and grew the company.

In 2017, we made a very deliberate decision to rename the company and to redefine WDD’s identity. We wanted a name and identity representative of our process, our work style, our team, and our client partnerships. That meant our identity must evoke transparency, flexibility, candor, and collaboration. And so, on December 6, 2017, we became Counterpart. Though we’ve always led our engagements with a relationship focus, we hope our new identity brings this commitment to the forefront of every conversation.
