Our Story

We built Hornbill around a simple yet powerful idea: to help people at work communicate and share information across business, geographical and cultural boundaries while simplifying the process of getting things at work done.

Having provided software solutions since 1995 we have learned that people are the power behind every great organization and that sharing knowledge and experience in an open and collaborative way is the route to a better run business.

We believe that business applications should be as simple to use as social consumer applications, underpinned with powerful collaboration and process automation capabilities, to deliver beautiful collaborative line-of-business applications that help teams get work done.
