GenesisIn 2003, our founder and CEO Frederik Taleman was a 20-year old computer science student, occasionally helping out his father with his job. His father, a salesman at a door manufacturer, spent a lot of time calculating the right prices and creating quotations. Frederik knew he could digitize and simplify this process.
Without being aware of the concept of CPQ, he created his first program, determining prices and generating quotations in a much more effective way. The efficiency boost at his father’s door company was incredible. Frederik believed other companies could benefit from this CPQ solution the same way. And HiveCPQ was born!
Foundation and beginningsHiveCPQ was founded in 2016 by Frederik Taleman. His talent has allowed the company to focus on the innovativity and simplicity of CPQ systems. His goal? Making it easy to understand, manufacture, and sell the most complex products. That is why Hive is fixated on handling complicated tasks while keeping everything user-friendly.
Frederik sticks to his values and uses them to inspire the company. His main priority is customer satisfaction and trust, so he stresses the importance of honesty and efficiency.
