Mavicus I.T. Solutions is a small custom software development company located in Orani, Bataan, Philippines and founded by engineer and entrepreneur Ric Galit. What makes Mavicus different is the company focuses specifically on web-based custom software solutions for small businesses. Mavicus understands how a small business works, what a small business can afford, and how to create affordable solutions in the small business environment.

In late 2001 Ric decided to start doing freelance programming work for local companies because he could see the need in the marketplace for custom software solutions for small businesses, at a price that small businesses could afford. While other firms sell fancy, high-priced consulting, Ric knew that his background in the kinds of technologies that everyday businesses use would enable him to help many different kinds of small businesses. Ric understands small business operations and sees the similarities in small businesses—effective inventory control, accurate production monitoring, timely scheduling of resource, payment processing, customer service and management reporting.

Ric believes in delivering excellent work for a fair price by ensuring quality control in the software being produced. Ric typically does the database design for all custom software projects. He is proficient in PHP and MySQL, covering everything from automated database report generation to data warehousing. As a technologist, Ric is knowledgeable in Linux and he has created many web-based software solutions for small businesses.
