To deliver simple and intuitive user experiences across the world’s desktops, reducing development costs and improving business outcomes.

About us

Established in 2012 by its parent company, Tick42, we are a rapidly growing software and services business based in London, New York and Bulgaria. Version 1.0 of our platform was released in 2014 and was deployed into production environments soon after. Version 2 came in 2016 and was awarded Technology Projects of the year by The Banker. The latest version (3.0) was released in 2018 by which point we had exceeded 15,000 mission production deployments.

Glue42 is a critical element in any digital transformation program. We enable organisations to:

  • Develop configurable workflows that support user journeys across any applications
  • Migrate legacy applications to the new world – while keeping the lights on
  • Monitor user behaviours and provide evidence of process compliance

Tick42 and Glue42 are privately held and entirely funded by the founders.
