Our StoryKobas was established in 2008 when founder James O’Sullivan, worked alongside a London bar group as a Development Consultant.
It was immediately obvious that there were significant operational challenges when running a hospitality business with unconnected and inefficient technology. James identified an opening to provide a solution for other operators who were experiencing the same pain points.
As a result, Kobas Cloud (as it later became known) was released in 2009, allowing teams to streamline their back-office systems by managing all processes and functions in one place.
The development on the product continued as the Kobas team and client base grew. Now, over a decade later, the Kobas product pillars support the complete hospitality management system that Kobas clients experience today.
Restaurant group wanted a way to remove spreadsheets from the business. CEO James O’Sullivan began developing software around their requirements.
The first cash log was recorded using Kobas. Further development around rotas and reports, alongside the introduction of the HR solution.
As client demand and development grew, so did the Kobas team. New faces joined the business including CTO / COO Neil Mukerji.
