This year Computer Profile was registered as a BVBA in Belgium.
Throughout the years
This year Computer Profile operated from offices in Zaventem and Breda. Michiel Alkemade starts Computer Profile Netherlands.
The following year, Harry van der Lint was hired as the second employee in the Netherlands (Michiel was the first employee). Later Harry also became a shareholder of Computer Profile.
Margje de Groot was the third employee at Computer Profile Netherlands. Fun fact; she is still working at Smart Profile today!
In 2005, we started with tele campaigns. SAP was our first customer to use this service.
Computer Profile Benelux celebrates its 10th anniversary. This was celebrated with a large party with all employees.
This year, in addition to supplying data and tele-campaigns, we also started sending e-mails.
From now on, we can compare snapshots of past data with current data. This allowed us to present trend lines.
This year, for the first time in the Netherlands, intverviews were held with companies to enrich our data.
Previously the focus was on the IT market; Fleet Profile had joined the organisation in 2013.
In this year, we started with ‘Holacracy’, working in self-managing teams. The word manager was abolished.
Whereas nowadays we visualise almost all our data in dashboards, it was certainly different in the past. In 2017, our first dashboard was born.
As of 2019, it has been decided to merge the two Profiles under the name: Smart Profile. This name is future proof and also lends itself to serving more markets than just the automotive and ICT market.
This department within Smart Profile is mainly concerned with innovating our products. For these data scientists and analysts, the sky is the limit.
Since this year, we have the entire market (including companies with fewer than five employees).
