SortMyBooks makes smart and simple accounting software for small and medium businesses. Our mission is to make accounting quick, easy and informative. SortMyBooks developed its first product Quick VAT in 2000 which was a VAT returns product for the Irish Market. By year 2002 the company launched a full accounting package called SortMyBooks. The easy to use interface made this product an instant hit with both Business owners and Accountants.
Anne’s unrelenting persistence at the helm has kept the company growing and innovating since it started in February 2000.
Anne’s diverse package of education (English and History major coupled with computer programming training and an NUI Certificate in Education and Training) and experience (from computer programming with Delphi Technologies for Friends First, AIB and BOI to small business accounts and liquidations to client database implementation with Safe Ireland) gives her a rounded perspective on business and commercial opportunities. She is fiercely loyal to the cause of small business success and has been a mentor for Jerry Kennelly’s hugely successful Young Entrepreneurs programme for the past two years.
Aileen’s been a computer programmer since computers took up the whole ground floor of a building. She got her computer science degree from UL back when it was still called the NIHE. She was using the Internet before it was the World Wide Web. She rose up the ranks of Canada Dry in New York to head up their IT department before returning to Ireland and setting up SortMyBooks.
Aileen believes passionately in keeping things simple and loves the diversity offered through working with small businesses. Her mission is to empower business owners to take control of their own financial futures. Our customers love her for her ability to strip away the confusion and pomposity that seems to surrounds accounts. She removes the veil and shows business owners how their accounts are simply made up of a series of buying and selling decisions that they make by themselves every day.
We knew we needed Sambit on the team because of his track record for bringing in IT projects on time and on budget for companies such as Hibernian, GE Money and TCS (a company that has more employees than the whole population of Cork!). He keeps us all focussed and on target.
Sambit was actually trying to return to India when Aileen and Anne persuaded or rather informed him that joining the SortMyBooks team was his true destiny. Sambit is very quick to assess a situation and realising resistance would be futile he complied gracefully. Sambit won’t let us put a feature on the list until we can explain exactly its purpose, how it is going to work, what benefits it will have and more importantly whose looking for it. We’ve got to be able to prove our customers need and want it before he’ll put it on the plan.
Tom was in the US army for 20 years and has a degree in Computer Science from the University of Pheonix. For the last 10 years Tom was running his own IT services business, installing networks and providing support to customers such as the Department of Justice, the South West Fisheries Board, DMC Medical and the South Kerry Development Partnership.
Tom has been part of our Quality Team since 2009 and this is where his army background really shows. He is relentless and thorough when it comes to Quality. His attention to detail is legendary and at times really annoying. Tom puts our software and all new releases through its paces.
