SPAN HISTORY TIMELINE

SPAN Enterprises is not your average software company. Based in the small, historic town of Rock Hill, SC, we are a completely cloud-based software company with over a dozen world-class products on the market. While we celebrate tradition and stay connected to our roots, we aren’t afraid to forge new paths in pursuit of truly cutting-edge software solutions. Learn more about how it all began in our History Timeline.

Span Enterprises Logo
The SPAN Enterprises brand is born with a logo designed by Sajeev and our signature, trademarked tagline: endless possibilities. The logo, which is two infinity symbols within a sphere, echoes the message of our tagline and represents our founders’ belief that no matter who you are or where you are from, you can achieve greatness.
Agie Naga founded SPAN Enterprises
Agie & Naga founded SPAN Enterprises, combining their 20 years of expertise in software and design in pursuit of their dreams. Unable to find funding for their fledgling company, they “bootstrapped,” selling everything they owned to realize their vision.

SPAN UnitWise
In late 2009, SPAN started development on its first software solution, UnitWise, a web-based business management program for Mary Kay sales directors. Agie’s wife, Carrie, served as the inspiration for this product. As a sales director for Mary Kay, she recognized the need for a program like UnitWise.
