Our History

  • 2004 - Our founders meet

    Founders Ian Bond and Adam Watson first meet at a software company in Leeds, providing large Asset Management systems to Local Authorities.

  • November 2010 - Sandgate Systems is incorporated

    Ian and Adam took a leap of faith, quitting their jobs and setting out to create what is now Sandgate Systems Limited. A great career move as far as we're concerned!

  • March 2011 - Property Prefect is born

    Drawing on their combined experience, Ian and Adam created a web-based software tool enabling schools to manage all areas of property maintenance and health and safety issues more effectively.

  • June 2012 - Property Prefect rebranded to TES Foundation

    TSL Education and Sandgate Systems Limited joined forces, bringing together Property Prefect and TES BuyWire.

  • September 2015 - Re branded to Every

    Full ownership is reverted back to Sandgate System's original founders, and they took this fresh start to re-brand as Every. We had a full make-over, logo and everything - and don't we look lovely!

  • November 2016 - New, bigger offices

    Dangerously close to an M&S Foodhall and with a pub just below us, our new office has proved a wonderful home as we continue to grow and build on our successes.

  • July 2017 - We launched our apps

    We launched our Issues, Activities and Assets applications for both Android and iOS devices, for users to take their Every system on the move.

  • October 2018 - We hired our 25th member of staff

    The company is growing at a rapid pace, and it was in October 2018 when we hired our 25th member of full-time staff. 

  • April 2019 - Introducing the Engagement Team

    Having previously existed within the Customer Services team, this new department is there to guide you through the implementation of your Every system and ensure you are engaging with it - a little clue in the job title there...

  • September 2019 - Announcing our HR system

    The secret is out finally, we were able to share that Every is branching out to tackle HR management as well as compliance.
