Our Story

About Simple But Needed

SBN was founded in 2008 with a goal of making data capture, and life, easier for our clients. We believe in making software that is quick to implement and easy to use while still allowing for the complex data analysis demanded by modern business. Our founders hail from large enterprises such as Kaiser, Wells Fargo, and Gilead Sciences where they witnessed firsthand the problems that can arise developing and implementing software at scale.

The SBN team applied the lessons learned from implementing software used by millions of people to build out a best-in-class solution for capturing safety and compliance data. Over the years, SBN has continued to evolve and maintain a focus on being a software partner that not only helps solve pressing problems for our clients but also listens to our clients and provides them a world-class experience.
