There's a better way
to build software.

Most products are bloated, too expensive, unnecessarily complex, and built for maximum revenue rather than maximum value.

Our goal is to achieve a better balance of price to value by cutting out the noise and obsessing about what matters most to customers.

We cater to early-stage and small companies looking for inexpensive alternatives to essential services.

The Lean20 Vision

The idea is simple.

Venture-scale companies are pressured with relentless pursuit of revenue growth which has an inevitable impact on software complexity and price.

Commodity services.

Cloud computing allows us to reduce many products to only the features truly needed for the lowest possible price.

The 80/20 rule.

80% of software features are used by less than 20% of users. Our focus is eliminating those, supporting only the highest value functionality.

Bootstrapped and hand-crafted.

We never outsource development. We are built with love from Seattle and have the experience and passion to keep it that way.
