Super simple business software


Gerard and Peter were working with a consultancy firm and noticed companies really struggled with finding good software and were manually adding data in Excel for client contact, and then having to do exactly the same thing over and over again every step of the way, all the way up to invoicing. The two started Simplicate as a side project in 2013 and it became a full time company in 2015.

The successtory

The secret behind Simplicate’s success is that their software is not only super easy to use, but that it also works like a charm with other software and that companies can choose how many features they really need. In 2016, the startup landed a €1 million investment from the Investment and Development Agency for the Northern Netherlands (NOM).

What makes Simplicate awesome?

Simple and smart software that seamlessly works with the way people run their business. Customer contact, project management, billing and hours, it doesn’t have to be boring or overly complicated. In fact, it should be be the exact opposite of complicated. That’s the philosophy founders Peter Hager and Gerard Loode were going for when they came up with their software, simply and aptly called Simplicate. 

Did you know?

Because startups are a fairly new, but increasingly important part of the economy, Simplicate, along with Google and a number of national and international startups, have set up a special startup lobby this year. The Dutch Startup Association is lobbying for startup friendly government legislation, such as trading salary for stock options and tax benefits for venture capital.
