In 2009, during their studies, Erwin van der Vlist and Patrick van der Mijl worked as shift managers in the retail sector; they quickly noticed the ineffective and inefficient communications that took place. With the rise of the smartphone and mobile internet, they knew things had to change and believed in a new, better form of communication. Speakap was born.
Almost 10 years later, today Speakap has offices in seven locations around the world, employing more than 60 people in our Amsterdam HQ alone.
Today, our solution is used by more than 300 organisations around the globe - including some of the biggest names in retail and hospitality - but we still remain proud of and committed to creating a tool that benefits, supports and is enjoyed by its core users on the stop floor, in the kitchen, on the ward, on the road, or on the production line.
We don’t like to boast but, well, we’re kind of a big deal…
