The various modules fit together seamlessly and are  easy to use, for consultants, plant managers, operations managers and operators. What is more, our software can easily be tailored to the needs of your specific process. Cierpa software brings continuous improvement within the reach of everyone in every company.


Mathieu van Loon

CEO Cierpa Software

Who is who?

Mathieu van Loon
CEO, Co-founder
The question which impels me, as CEO and co-founder of Cierpa is: how do you reinforce a change of culture (that is, continuous improvement) by means of software? When I see an operator or a manager demonstrate how his or her team has improved with the help of our software, then I am really proud of what we have contributed with Cierpa software.
Han van der Heijden
Sparring partner
I’m a sparring partner for consultants and for customers with in-depth questions. In addition, I’m responsible for customer support and marketing. What makes me happy? Seeing our customers become more successful.
Dirk Jan van Lente
Co-founder, Improvement Consultant
From my own working experience, I was aware that there were no good CI-software modules available on the workfloor to support continuous improvement. Although that is precisely where it should be happening. That was very much in my mind as co-founder of Cierpa. I often conceive the setup and functions of our modules, and then, within Cierpa, we work these out into a user-friendly product.
Janneke Möhlmann
Interaction Designer, Marketing
As Interaction Designer, I work to enable the users of our software to achieve their goals in the easiest possible way. What are the various stages they have to go through? Where are the buttons situated? How does the software interface appear? I think it’s fantastic when our clients use the software for the first time and immediately understand how they can do what they want with it.
Dong Lin
Software developer
As a software developer for Cierpa, I create user-friendly features from the ideas of our customers. What I really like about this job is building software that makes complicated things less complicated. Seeing our customers using our software and making their work easier makes me happy.
Elmer Okken
Software developer
As Software Developer I work on the functionality of our applications. New ideas and designs will be implemented by me and I will give them shape and structure. I'm pleased when everythong works well and looks organised.
Freek Küthe
Software Development
As a software developer I write reliable code and expand the functionality of our applications. I like it when customers are happy with new features and can use our software without any problems. If something does go wrong, it is sometimes a puzzle to find and solve the problem, but I also like this aspect of the work.
