Pnyx was established in 2012 by Juan Pereyra, a Systems Architect with decades of experience in major IT projects across Argentina, Brazil and Australia.

Juan was working in the Community Services sector at the time, where technology shortcomings were a common occurrence. He began to develop a strong interest in a new technology paradigm – “Social Technology” (i.e. technology being developed in a more organic, humanistic way, where IT systems engage with human interactions, rather than being configured in rigid structures and systems). Social media is based on such a paradigm.

It occurred to him that he could use social technology to create a social, multidisciplinary case management system, thus Pnyx was born.
