Erply is an enterprise software company which provides cloud-based point of sale and inventory management technology.[1] It was founded in Estonia by Kristjan Hiiemaa in 2009.[2] As of 2010, the company has 2,000 users and 700 paid subscribers.[3]


In 2009, the company won Seedcamp, a European early stage investment program.[4][5][6]

In March 2010, they received $2 million in funding from Saul Klein (Index Ventures), Satish Dharmaraj (Redpoint Ventures), Dave McClure and Kenny van Zant.[3][7]


The service was initially a retail payment solution for small to medium-sized businesses.[8] They have since expanded to larger box retailers, and provide systems for point of sales, inventory control, billing, and other retail-related technologies.[9] The service retails for $74 per month on average.[10]

In August 2011, the company released a mobile credit card reader for handheld mobile devices such as Apple iPads.[11][12]


Erply has been profiled in media publications such as The Wall Street Journal, the Financial Times and the BBC.[1][3][13] Erply as one of the top ten European startups to watch in 2011.[10][14]
