Frogtrade Ltd was set up in 1999 by two guys as a web software company to connect the textile and other industries from the East to the West. The idea didn't go as planned but a head teacher saw an early version of the technology and thought it would be great for schools. The rest is history.
In 2007 the Becta framework came along and we were too small to get on it at the time. But that didn’t stop the most forward thinking schools, about 1 in 5, joining Frog – they knew a first class platform when they saw one. The first schools that ever joined us back then are still with us today and many more have followed.
We have continued to grow from just 2 to over 100 employees and there's a long way to go yet. We invest heavily in new technology, always developing the next best thing and no matter how big we get, we'll always stay close to our customers. Above all else, we recognise that if our schools fail, so do we.
We like to think of those that invest in Frog as part of the Frog family. Our customers start on an exciting journey with us, and we support them every step of the way. Every year, a bit like Christmas, we all get together to celebrate their successes and plan the next phase of the Frog journey. There’s always something exciting around the corner.
