Why open source?

Open source software has enabled us to build our business, and we’d like to give others a similar opportunity.

After six years of development, the Haplo platform is mature, stable and proven. We think it’s the right time to enable others to build solutions using this flexible platform.

We’d like to encourage even wider use of the platform, and recognise that platforms need to be open source to be trusted and adopted.

We think that open source is a positive influence in the world and we’re proud to make our contribution to the collection of open source solutions available to the community.
