Back in 1985, Heart Company Founder and Managing Director, Helen Young started working as a software developer, and later as a Director for a software company working with John Heath, (who subsequently joined with Kingfield to become Kingfield Heath, and then later evolved into VOW).
In 1992, Helen started her own software company (Katlog Computer Systems) producing the Statkat back-office system for the office supplies industry. This quickly grew to over 300 customers, supported by a dedicated team of 12, including current Director, Sarah Kennett.
In 2001, Helen and Sarah launched Heart Systems, replaced the old DOS system by rewriting the code completely for Microsoft Windows and launched it as PulseOffice. They were joined by Sales Director, Emily Murphy.
