Look back with pride. Look forward with anticipation.


Trissential was born in 2003, as an idea to create a third alternative for the consulting industry – the sweet spot between large SIs and local staffing firms. We grew deep roots, establishing ourselves in Minnesota, then expanding to Wisconsin and Illinois.

SQS (Software Quality Systems AG) the leading Quality specialist for digital business, acquired Trissential in 2015, adding quality testing services to Trissential’s capabilities and launched Trissential’s business model globally.

In 2018, Assystem Technologies acquired SQS to form a single organization, then rebranded into Expleo in 2019. Expleo, our parent company, is now the unique provider of end-to-end, integrated engineering, quality services & management consulting for digital transformation.

Trissential, an Expleo Company, stands strong in the United States. We are still the same trusted partner focusing on value to the client and consultant. Now with 15,000 people strong in 25+ countries, we have expanded our global reach and enhanced our industry depth.
