How does this relate to the company?
That can a hard question to answer. The company has a stated desire for 100% satisfaction for its clients and express delivery of solutions, so it can be assumed that the company would understand how to apply the principles of this process for its development and expansion.
Due to the companies current filing status and the lack of volunteered information, it is difficult to form an assessment as to the stability of this company.
From a technical stock analysis, otcbb.swingtradbot.com assess, “The recent price action carved out a bearish shooting star candlestick pattern. That may indicate a downside reversal. Look for price to trade beneath the low of the shooting star for confirmation.”
The primary area of concern is a lack of transparency from the company to it’s current or prospective investors. This is highlighted by the current filing status and a lack of supportive news, in the form of press releases, from the company. The last known PR was dated May 9th, 2019, and consisted of an announcement of hiring a Blockchain Consulate company to build a system for Santeon Group. It is possible that the lack of filing may mean the company has no current need or desire to use the OTC for financial growth; additionally, the lack of updates on ongoing operation and development may indicate everything is running smoothly. However, both of these points may mean that the company may be failing. It is assumed that a company who specializes in rapid system development that focuses on prioritizing requirements based on their impact on the system being developed.
