Our Story so Far
Junari was founded in 2006 to provide SMEs with affordable business systems tailored to their specific needs. Unable to find a system that met our requirements, we selected to build upon the OpenERP platform and created a powerful, integrated solution across all common business areas. Committed to innovation and growth using the latest technology, we adopted the latest version of the OpenERP platform: Odoo – in 2019.
When it comes to business software, we know that one size doesn’t fit all. Our vision is to deliver user-friendly solutions that are fully tailored to the way you work. At Junari, our experts take the time to understand your requirements, and build bespoke systems that help you manage, organise and grow your business.
Our friendly and experienced team not only custom-build your system, they offer consultancy, training and long-term support so that you will never be left with a product that doesn’t entirely meet your needs.
Dom took over Junari in 2018. He has always been passionate about making the best use of systems and software and has held various roles within software businesses since 1999. He became director of a well-established software company in Suffolk in 2006 and progressed to MD in 2012. During this time, he was also elected as chair of Mid and North Essex Mind mental health charity, which he retired from in 2018 to focus on Junari.
Outside of work, he is kept busy with two kids and an active lifestyle.
Chief Technical Officer
Russ joined Junari in 2008 and is the creator of our original JunariCRM+ product. In 2016 he went on an extended sabbatical to New Zealand, where he worked as a Senior Developer at Xero and Land Information New Zealand. He returned to Junari in early 2020 as CTO and has been applying his recent learnings to drive Junari’s continued growth. Russ manages our team of Software Developers and Testers, and is responsible for our technical direction and infrastructure.
Outside of work, Russ is a keen musician and paraglider pilot!
Tony is the former MD of a successful IT company in Suffolk, with 16 years’ experience of owning and running a dynamic organisation. He started his career in IT in 1985, and in this time, gained a wealth of knowledge to help organisations find the right software and processes for them.
Tony has volunteered for local government as a councillor and as charity trustee.
Rachel joined Junari in July 2019. She previously worked in Finance for Mid & North East Essex Mind mental health charity, where she played a key part in the merger with Mid Essex Mind which Dominic was overseeing as chairman. Rachel says that: “The main attractions for joining Junari were the challenge and drive to take the company to the next level and help other business thrive through the support of our team.”
Outside of work, she loves renovating the family home, restoring old furniture, travelling, and experiencing different cultures.
