This is Iniationware!

Why Iniationware and what does it actually mean?

It is pronounced Ini-ation-ware (American-English pronunciation) and it is a made-up word. It is composed of parts of our most common operations. Most of our activities contain “ini” or “ation” and we always deal with hardware or software or “ware” in the warehouse or production. Therefore, Iniationware is the perfect name for us and our company.
