Parker Software is the brainy software house behind WhosOn and ThinkAutomation. We specialise in the development of live chat and business process automation software, and have risen to become the UK leader in these markets.
Our story began when founder and CEO Stephen Parker devised a novel concept: a tool that could both identify and engage website visitors. Stephen turned the concept into code, and WhosOn live chat software was born in 2003.
WhosOn was wildly successful – so much so that Stephen could scarcely cope with demand. He needed a tool that could parse and process all WhosOn orders and update the company database, but no such tool existed.
So, once more, Stephen took matters into his own hands and built our second product. Just one year later, in 2004, Email2DB (later rebranded as ThinkAutomation) was created. History was set to repeat itself, and this product also became a customer success.
Today, WhosOn powers 25 million chats and TA parses 5 billion emails each year. We’ve got a thriving business, a fantastic team and a humbling client base. With no intentions of slowing down, our story is just beginning.
