It’s hard to believe but frevvo’s just turned 10. It’s been quite a journey; obviously, like every company we’ve had a few struggles but overall, it’s been a fantastic ride.
Prior to frevvo, some of us worked at a BPM company where we built the front-end forms by hand. It was incredibly boring so we threw together a prototype while working part-time, quit our jobs and decided to give it a shot.
The first few years were tricky. We worked out of Branford’s Blackstone Public Library and Willoughby’s Coffee in Branford, CT. Thanks Town of Branford. We came from a BPM background so our product didn’t have the fanciest UI – but it did real business things like conditional logic, integration, calculations etc. Still, it wasn’t easy to sell and the four of us were all Engineers.
It took us a year to get our first customer and another year to get our tenth. Since then, we’ve grown to almost 800 customers of all sizes in all industries spread out all over the planet. We’ve added several employees in Branford (and we’re looking for a few more right now). We’ve been fortunate to partner with some of the biggest companies in the world as well as great local partners right here in Connecticut: Westbrook Technologies now DocuWare in Branford and Square-9 Softworks in New Haven.
Ten years later, after many twists and turns, we’ve stayed true to our mission of caring deeply about our employees.
“We will not sacrifice our team’s happiness to chase every last $. We don’t want to be the biggest; we just want to be the best.”
That approach has paid huge dividends – employees have stepped up during tough times and customers sense their commitment and willingness to go the extra mile to ensure satisfaction – just take a look at our long list of customer testimonials.
I’m so proud of our success and grateful for the amazing team we have here at frevvo. I’m excited about the future, about meeting our new employees, about growing our business right here in Connecticut, and about building an even better product and exciting new relationships with customers and partners.
To all our customers: rest-assured that our employees will do everything in their power to ensure that you’ll still be happy frevvo customers on our 15th anniversary and beyond.
Finally, to my original co-conspirators Leandro, Nancy & Yuri, thank you for everything. It’s been a heckuva ride these last 10 crazy years.
