It started 10 years ago...

Ten years ago Jan Smits embarked on his adventure as a software programmer in the world of Pest Control. The pest control market was asking for a good software product specifically designed to their needs. Software that grows with the developments in the market so the pest control technicians can work in a professional way. For then years, PestScan has been updating the software at least four times a year so the number of features has grown enormously. We have really become a specialist in the market and sometimes people joke: “Jan speaks the language of rats and mice!”. To help more pest control professionals we have chosen to expand abroad. Step by step more countries were added: Belgium, Germany, France and at the moment our product is used world wide in over 25 languages. From our small country we now work on all six continents! Our team has expanded with a programming team, a sales team and a support team. Meet our team.

Jan

General Manager
I build PestScan up from the ground and just love writing program code. I am a Microsoft certified programmer. I hope I will always have the time to program myself. With the help of a team, we continue to add to the program. I love languages and communicate with the whole world about PestScan. My vision is to make PestScan even more complete and beautiful as it is today, but never at the price of performance or user friendliness. Long time ago, I used to work as a teacher and today I still teach, but now about PestScan.

Sales Manager
As a creative thinker and salesperson I work at the sales department. Long time ago I graduated from agricultural college where I took a minor in Pest Control – and now I work at PestScan. I love to contact new prospects and customers and help them to take the step to start using PestScan. I always prefer to call rather than to e-mail and in this way I talk to a lot of companies.

Elias

Customer Support
I am responsible for customer support to our Dutch speaking customers. In this way I meet a lot of customers. In addition, I sometimes help when other things need to be arranged within the company. The fact that I am currently studying Physics often comes in handy. In addition, I learn French in my spare time and would like to fully master it. Finally, I like to meet up with friends in my spare time.

Marieke

Technical Support Engineer
At PestScan, I take on the support tasks that require more technical or extensive knowledge. This way, I can relieve the rest of the team and they can focus on growth and quality. With my broad background in both psychology and programming, I can respond well to different customer questions and hope to provide the customer with clear solutions.

Programmer
Technology is evolving at an ever-increasing rate, but the domain that requires a technical solution stays roughly the same. My biggest interests lay in delving deeper into the domain, to understand it, and find elegant solutions that best bridge the gap between the problem, the resources, and the future. For PestScan, I will be taking responsibility for its technical solutions, steering to find the best match for the landscape in which she resides.

As a project manager, my job is to start, work out and internally supervise our innovation projects.
Furthermore, PestScan is growing strongly as an organization. Here too, I support the realization of a good development of the organization. Outside my work I have all kinds of short term hobbies which can almost be considered as small projects.
