pascom was founded by two brothers, Mathias and Quirin Pasquay in 1997 who turned their passion for computers into a carreer. For Mathias, it was an extra special day as not only was it his 18th Birthday, but also the day that he picked up his driving licence before driving off to officially register pasquay computer (now pascom) at the local company registration office.
Initially focussing on end-user support services, the company began to grow and onboard a number of local business clients and it soon became apparent in which direction the brothers should steer the ship. The result, pascom Netzwerktechnik GmbH & Co. KG was born and began focussing solely on IT networking solutions for businesses.
Where did that name come from? A leading competitor of the day was named for another aquatic life form and well whales are bigger and therefore eat octopuses - right?! Anyway, like pascom today, MobyDick was based on the open source telephony software Asterisk® and initial versions involved no small amounts of coding, scripting and were labour intensive. In short, they were just not suitable as a solution to sell on mass. There had to be a better way and the brothers reckoned they had found a niche in which to grow.
Let’s be clear, we have always been professional and serious about what we do, it’s just that we have a lot of fun doing it. As we’ve grown and matured both as a company and as people, it’s become clear that to do ourselves justice and remain serious contenders in one of the fastest growing industries, the gimmicks had to be shown the door and the first to go was MobyDick. From now on, the future of business communications is pascom.
