At Soon, we believe that you can achieve any goal as long as you're well prepared.
In business, this usually means that operational teams need to plan. Planning is a tactical execution of your strategy. It's as simple as that and yet it's often the hardest thing a team has to do.
We're a diverse team and we like to be lean. We care about each other because we share the same cause. We are on a mission to have a meaningful and constructive impact on the world.
We are a small team with big dreams based in Europe, the Netherlands. Our approach in everything we do is and has always been with a very long term in mind. This is something you might not see very often in the fast world of tech startups. We believe in building strong partnerships with everyone we work with that are meant to last for decades. This goes for our customers, suppliers, as well as employees. Doing so is fundamental to everything else that follows.
For instance, if you want to use our product, we'll explore how we can be successful together. We genuinely want to understand your situation to make sure we are the right fit for your company since a collaboration will always be an investment of time from both ends. Time is the currency of Soon, and one you only run out of. Therefore we carefully select who we work with is as we believe that your success is our success and vice versa.
To this day, everything we have accomplished, we did our way. We are 100% bootstrapped, and we are damn proud of it. We obsess over our customers as we continue to hone our product to change with their needs.
Working closely with customer service and support teams has taught us a lot about how to interact with our clients. We take note on how to lift an issue out of your customers' hands and make it yours to solve. It inspires us to work alongside great companies who have mastered this art. Fun fact, we are extremely proud of our launching customer. Knab, an online bank - part of one of the largest financial institutions in the world - they are renowned for their excellent service, and we are happy to have them as our customer to this day.
A final note to show how we are there when our customers need us. You can always reach us, you can call our founders at any time, no appointments required. We put our hearts, minds, and souls in the smallest acts, which we believe is the secret to our success.
In a traditional system, scheduling is cluttered and complicated, rigid, business-first orientated, gives only information in a scattered manner, and is mostly build upon evolutionary thinking.
Soon scheduling is different; we are modern. Our mission is to make it easy for any team to create their best schedule ever.
We focus on human interaction. We believe scheduling can be easy and clear, customizable, and information to be centralized. We want to put people first, and we encourage collaboration and communication. We believe innovation can only be achieved by being revolutionary.
We are a team with a strong culture; we aim to be an enjoyable, creative, rewarding, and fun place to work. These are some of the values we live and work by. They are more than mere words. They provide us with guidance and a framework to make decisions as a company and individually.
