Years Tools4ever


How it all started...

On the 1st of  November 1999,  a management buyout from Jacques Vriens at Simac brought about the creation of Tools4ever. Two years later in 2001, co-founder Tjeerd Seinen joined the organization. Jacques and Tjeerd were looking to build new software solutions to enable system administrators to do their work with greater speed, security and simplicity. This vision led to the development of a suite of Identity Access Management software.

This vision proved very successful. To meet the demand of its existing client base and new clients, the staff has increased dramatically, from 1 person in 1999, to 140 skilled employees in 2019.
