About Atlas: Helping businesses grow since 2007

The Atlas Story

Atlas was founded in 2007 by two software developers Simon and Dean, both of whom shared a passion for building software to solve complex and unique business problems.
Our ethos and mission statement for Atlas is simple:


“Create clever software that defines the future of process automation and compliance within businesses, by using the latest technological advancements and innovative approaches.”

Atlas has grown to over twenty UK based employees, each of whom share the same passion for customer service and delivering value. Our team have created hundreds of successful software solutions for businesses in a wide range of industries including finance, inventory, manufacturing and pharmaceutical.
Inspired by the success of our customer’s projects, in 2012 we applied our team’s skills to create our own web applications products. These include Staff Squared a HR software application for small businesses, and Fundipedia a data management application for fund managers.

Our products contribute to Atlas’ long term sustainability and also provide us a unique opportunity to test new technologies, processes and tools on our own solutions. The knowledge and successes gleaned from our products is then applied to customer projects, constantly improving our overall service offering.

Atlas today

Our ethos today is the same as when we were founded, and we continue to deliver incredible software solutions and customer service.
Our team works in partnership with our customers to specify, design, develop and implement software solutions that will empower businesses and positively impact their bottom line. We work with a wide range of companies from large established financial institutions to venture capital backed startups.
We’re approachable and enthusiastic. Decades of experience allow us to use agile to deliver software development projects quickly without a compromise on quality. Our services include software consultancy, giving you access to the best brains in the software industry. We also offer code reviews and software testing.
