The Bizimply Story


Bizimply Logo









Bizimply is a software platform that allows businesses to manage and engage with their workforce across multiple locations.

The Background

Founded in 2011 by Norman Hewson and Gerard Forde, Bizimply began when they realised the difficulties that existed in running a multi location business using paper and spreadsheets. Norman and Gerard owned a chain of Cafe’s called Nude. They drove from one location to the next on yellow scooters. Instead of spending time on the floor and with their staff, they were swamped with paper work and wasting time travelling between sites. They were unable to enjoy the parts of the job they loved and they made a decision to work toward changing the industry standard for multi-location management.

The Challenge

In 2013, Mikey Canon came on board as head of product. With a very special talent for understanding the end user’s needs, Mikey’s work saw Bizimply begin to quickly grow into a robust product that was intuitive and perfectly suited for the needs of employees, supervisors and managers for hospitality and retail stores.

In 2015, Bizimply won the Web Summit Irish Start Up Award and the ESB Spark of Genius Award. In 2016, Bizimply won the Best Cloud Service to Optimise Business Performance in the Dot IE Net visionary Awards.



Every team member in Bizimply has experience working in retail and/or hospitality. As a group, we understand the needs of our customers and the challenges that exist within the industry. Growing from strength to strength, Bizimply is an innovative product with a motivated and passionate team committed to continuing its success story.
