Tobin Harris, Founder

Our story

Our company was founded by Tobin Harris in 2012 when he noticed that most business apps were failing to reach their true potential. As a mobile expert and advocate, Tobin wanted to give companies a better chance at success.

Since starting the company 7 years ago, our first three apps are still in use today, one transacting over £30m a year, and all are still under active development at Pocketworks. This is what success looks like to us - helping our clients make good choices, invest wisely and ultimately make their customers and staff more productive in some way or another.
