Ampler was founded in 2015 by Kristian and Sune, two expert management consultants from Bain & Company, with diverse backgrounds in operations analysis, engineering, business, and even architecture.
They found themselves spending endless hours in PowerPoint every day, and a lot of this time was used for tedious tasks such as formatting slides, aligning shapes, and digging through old presentations for content.
With the long hours and terrible work-life balance of management consultants, they started looking for solutions to reduce the time spent on these ‘stupid-simple’ tasks to free up time for actually cracking the case and delivering awesome recommendations to their clients – and going home early to their girlfriends every once in a while. But no solutions covered their needs; some software could help set up shortcuts, some could help format a chart, and some advertised automation of error-finding, but no coherent solution was to be found, and even in unity, the available solutions lacked several functions Sune and Kristian needed.
Sune and Kristian got fed up and decided to take matters into their own hands. At this point they were luckily introduced to a top-of-the-class young programmer, Søren, who was capable of bringing all their ideas to life – and is now the lead programmer of Ampler.
The resulting solution worked better than they could ever have imagined, with data from their first customers showing astounding results. Word started to spread, and users wanted to take the solution with them to new jobs, share it with their colleagues, and started requesting new features. Wanting to help everyone in the best way possible, the founders took all these feature request and implemented them into Ampler, making the solution even more rigid, customizable, and timesaving.
Now, Sune and Kristian’s new mission is to get Ampler into as many hands as possible, to enable fellow consultants to also reap the benefits and free up their precious time.
