Founded in 2014 by Gerard Forde & Norman Hewson.They owned a chain of cafe’s in Dublin called Nude and 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. Bizimply is built with all the passion and enthusiasm gained from years of this service industry experience. Bizimply is the pursuit of a more effective way to work - for you, for your managers and for your dedicated staff.
LIFE AT BIZIMPLY
Every team member in Bizimply has experience working in hospitality or retail. 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.
“With years of experience dealing with customers I understand the needs of our customers and the challenges industries face today. I remember Bizimply seemed like a really cool company, with a great product so I decided to apply for a job. My role in Sales now involves bringing in new customers, doing discovery calls, demos, pipeline management, forecasting, chatting with partners. What I love about working here is the variety, I get to work with much smarter people than myself in their departments. Sales tends to have a natural ‘high’ when a new customer signs up – but seeing most of the customers I closed in 2015 still using the product is my personal favourite.”
“As a student I worked for a number of restaurants in various roles. On finishing my studies, I started off working in the Technology sector in various commercial roles. I also started a couple of Food and Beverage businesses. My last role was Head of F&B as a contractor in Paris – it consisted of supporting the F&B Operators to deliver operational excellence & delivery of KPI’s agreed with Vale Retail. I wanted a change of career but a role that combined the application of tech within Hospitality. I really enjoy working with my colleagues at Bizimply and interacting with a myriad of Food and Beverage businesses that range from QSR to Fine Dining as well as Food and Beverage retailers”.
“Before Bizimply I owned a coffee shop & delicatessen in Galway. We served speciality coffee and healthy free-from food options. Now, I am Product Manager, I have been working in the Product team at Bizimply for over a year now. I started out in UK Sales then I moved to manage the UK Sales team. My day to day duties have varied with each role that I have held. I work with multiple departments in the company in terms of the current product and future plans. Liaising with customers is a part of my role as well as designing specs for development.”
“I have a past life as an academic and psychologist for 10 years before changing careers to business and marketing. I worked in two very small startups before Bizimply; doing sales, marketing and customer service. The change of job came as I’d remembered Bizimply as the success story when I was in the NDRC incubator for my first start-up, and thought I’d be a good fit for the role. Now at Bizimply, I introduce customers to their Bizimply account; train customers and host webinars; solve customer problems, and generally keep customers happy! I really enjoy it when I can solve a customer’s problem and make their lives easier!”
“Pre Bizimply I was an Ops Director, delivering exceptional customer service and growing the brand position. I also was a customer of Bizimply back in 2015 so always felt part of the family in one way or another. I have always been involved in hospitality, the drive and energy of the business have always been a win for me, combined with the latest tech and you have me and Bizimply. In my Sales Advisor role, I enjoy meeting and advising new people and understanding their issues, watching them achieve their set goals with a clear simplistic solution. It almost replaces the Saturday night buzz in a packed-out restaurant!”
“I started my hospitality career working for Costa Coffee PT whilst studying, having eventually worked my way up to Ops and Training Manager this brought on a whole lot more responsibilities. Within Costa I worked on the Bizimply roll out project which I absolutely loved. I thought it was time for a career change so I with love for the product, I decided to join Bizimply! I started in Sales, but have joined the Product team as a Product Designer. Moving into the tech industry clearly provides opportunities to grow and learn as the industry continues to expand.”
“With experience of working in the bar and hospitality industry, allowed me to understand the main issues that face the industry as a whole and what are the serious pressure points for management within this sector. Having studied IT & development at uni and wanting to pursue this I jumped at the opportunity to join Bizimply when a job came up. Now head of development, I address issues and problem solve on a daily basis, overcoming challenges and engaging with new technologies and services and always learning.”
“With 9 years of experience in the hospitality industry, particularly in managing hospitality software from mapping rates between different platforms to working with the software providers to customise software to our needs and preferences. I also developed a passion and a knack for technology which led to me to the career change & joining Bizimply! As a Product Owner, I review and collaborate on the rest of the team’s designs and I also design for bigger features. I manage software that we use to store and backlog our designs and make improvements to ease and speed up our workflow. Bizimply offers me variety, challenges and endless amounts of room to grow.”
“I have a long career of being in the hospitality industry, starting in O’Briens Sandwich Bar to obtaining a position as Five Guys Training Manager in 2015 – a surreal experience. I was a big part of the recruitment drive for all Five Guys restaurants in Ireland and Northern Ireland. I was looking for a change in my career but I wanted to still be able to use the knowledge which I have gathered along my years of experience. My role as CS Manager is giving me the opportunity to still work closely with hospitality and retail managers and be able to support them with my knowledge.”
