In 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!
