The SharpCloud Story
In 2008 Sarim and Rusty started a research discussion with a few friendly enterprise companies about their issues in communicating the right numbers (and supporting information) to their executive communities at the right time for collaboration and decision making.
For many business processes it was very clear from these early discussions that they had identified a communications gap which in most cases was covered by an unsuccessful combination of static slide decks and spreadsheets, leading to linear conversation. Ultimately, decisions were still made on individual opinions due to the poor nature of executive information support.
The idea of SharpCloud was born from these early discussions and what became evident from their research was the need for a less row-column based solution and the need for a visual consumer-grade software across all platforms, with offline working and both cloud and on-premises business models. SharpCloud Software was formed in January 2012 and is working with many leading companies on improving business communication and productivity.
Sarim Khan and Rusty Johnson became great friends when they met on their first day at university in 1989, they are the co-founders of SharpCloud Software and previously led Pertmaster Ltd to its successful acquisition by Primavera Systems Inc. (now Oracle Inc).
