Cloud computing / SaaS

In 2015, Sirris helped dozens of software companies exploit the opportunities offered by the cloud to develop innovative solutions quickly and efficiently and distribute them to large numbers of users.

iBeauty: the 40th company to cross the Sirris Startathlon finish line

In 2015, iBeauty, which runs an online CRM platform for beauty salons and hairdressers, became the 40th company to take part in the Sirris Startathlon. At Startathlon workshops, between five and seven SaaS and hardware companies, both start-ups and spin-offs, get the opportunity to work on their own innovative business case with a team of Sirris experts. iBeauty was therefore guided through seven clear steps towards a validated growth model.

Sirris supports Prosteps’ international SaaS and upscaling ambitions

Prosteps develops growth software for the retail and wholesale sector from its base in Antwerp. Over 30 employees support international players, such as travel and outdoor sports chain A.S. Adventure, with ERP solutions. The company recently launched its first Software-as-a-Service offering onto the market: Tilroy, an online and omni-channel checkout system that connects up all sales channels in real time. However, Prosteps does not have all the necessary know-how in-house to grow internationally via this SaaS platform. In 2015, it sought assistance from Sirris to set up the ideal advisory board.

KampAdmin finds inspiration at Sirris’s SaaS bootcamp

There is a lot involved in running a successful youth camp: arranging registrations, organising the logistics, recruiting and paying monitors and developing group activity programmes while always keeping in mind what makes each child unique. It was this that inspired Pieterjan Muller, an IT whizz-kid from Leuven, to develop an online software package that integrates and automates the administrative tasks of youth camp organisers. Hoping to further refine the user experience of the aptly-named ‘KampAdmin’ application, Muller attended the SaaS MVP Engineering Bootcamp organised by Sirris in 2015.
