THE COMPANY

About Thinkwise

OUR HISTORY
2002
IN THE BEGINNING...

Thinkwise was founded by Robert van der Linden and Victor Klaren in 2002 with the philosophy to build a platform that could never turn into legacy. This also applies for the end applications built with the Thinkwise platform. This was done by separating the technology from the business logic. Contrary to other low-code providers, the platform allows its customers to completely replace large legacy systems along with most of its peripheral applications and shadow IT.

2002 - 2012
PLATFORM DEVELOPMENT AND VARIOUS ENTERPRISE PROJECTS

Ever since its inception, the Thinkwise Platform itself has been used to create new versions of the platform. Think of it like a 3D printer printing a better 3D printer! Each iteration added more features and implemented feedback from developers and our customers.

During this time we carried out many low-code implementation projects at companies such as  Holland Pharma, Antea Group, Royal Huisman and many more.

2013
CORE SYSTEM FOR VDL

The international industrial family business VDL chose to modernize its core systems with the Thinkwise Platform. The existing legacy ERP software of VDL was modernized and extended using the Thinkwise Platform. The new low-code ERP was then implemented at over 40 factories nationwide and is ready for further national and international growth.

2015
EXPANSION

Thinkwise opens offices in Eindhoven and Rotterdam. Through the presence of an office in these cities, we aim to achieve better accessibility for our customers and also attract new talent from these regions. 

2018
A NEW HOME

Moving into a new office building on the Ovenbouwershoek in Apeldoorn. The new headquarters offers approximately 1,900 square meters of additional office space, which provides ample room for further expansion of the organization.

2019
A NEW STRATEGY

A new phase in the history of our company, with a shift in focus on building new partnerships and international growth.

In the coming years, Thinkwise wants to grow into a leading internationally operating low-code platform supplier.
