The PIPR Story

The PiPr business was born out of the bespoke creation of sales and marketing platforms for some of Australia’s highest profile house and land developers and builders since 2002. For 15 years, these platforms produced over $7 billion worth of transactions, with businesses quadrupling their sales in 12 months. This success could only be accessed by larger builder developers, as this system was expensive to both build and maintain; highlighting an opportunity in the industry, PiPr was created.

The advent of cloud technologies and maturing of the market for these services has seen PiPr evolve into the exciting software as a service (SaaS) business it is today. Launched in 2018, PiPr has assisted businesses to process over $250 million in transactions. With affordable setup and ongoing success fees, developers only pay if the system is working for them.
