Glaze was founded in Reykjavík by veteran software developers hungry for turning the complex world of sales, POS and e-commerce software into a simplified, coherent and zen-like user experience.
From the very beginning we set the bar high. Our slogan from day one was "Beautiful Sophisticated Engineering". Our values from the start; Quality, Creativity and Transparency.
Glaze is our pride and joy and we love to see it out there in the world, creating value for our customers and we are especially thrilled when we see our customer's customers ecstatic over their glazed service experience!
