About Teamleader Focus

5 facts about Teamleader Focus

Built from the ground up based on customer feedback

Powered by a strong entrepreneurial spirit, CEO and founder Jeroen De Wit started his own web design agency during college together with co-founders Willem Delbare and Mathias De Loore. A customer's request for project management components prompted the idea to build a standalone software application - from the ground up.

Eventually, they switched their entire focus to supporting and developing their new CRM software. Teamleader Focus was founded in July 2012, and grew organically from a customer-centric philosophy. The CRM module, the beating heart of the tool, was built from scratch, based mainly on customer feedback.

With surprising efficiency, Teamleader Focus's simple and intelligent interface can take ordinary data and turn it into something more useful - helping users work smarter.
