About simPRO

This is our story

"I didn't want other people to have to go through the heartache of becoming a slave to their business. I saw an opportunity for Vaughan and I to try to create a solution together."

Stephen Bradshaw, simPRO Executive Director & Co-Founder

Like all great software companies, simPRO started in a garage.

In 2002 Stephen Bradshaw was a hard-working electrical contractor running his own small business and trying to figure out how to scale up.

After relying on paper-based workflows for years he decided there had to be a better way. That’s when he met Vaughan McKillop, an engineering student who had a talent for building software.

simPRO (which stands for Service Industry Management Professional) was a cloud-based solution from the beginning. Starting with the development of job list functionality, the pair quickly moved on to creating a scheduling tool for allocating resources. Using Steve’s business as a test case, they quickly developed new features and the software continued to grow.

As Steve's electrical business began to expand, with the help of simPRO, they quickly realised they'd created a solution which could help other businesses.

The desire to create useful tools for businesses has seen simPRO grow from a two man operation to a global software company with offices in Australia, New Zealand, the United Kingdom and the United States.

While we no longer work from a garage, our passion for helping all businesses scale and optimise their operations remains at the heart of what we do.
