Spring Solutions is a software company based in Oxfordshire, UK, specialising in web applications. In 2008, Spring Solutions started work on the web toolkit Exprodo and the first Exprodo application, Calpendo. This resulted in the first live site using Calpendo in June 2009 at the University of Oxford. In February 2012, it was decided to start a new company, Conaptic Limited, that would further develop Exprodo-based products. This change was done for two reasons. First, if you do an internet search for “Spring Solutions”, you find all sorts of things unrelated to the company. Consequently a new (and unique) name was required. Second, the Spring Solutions founder, Paul Robinson, took on a business partner who is a long time friend, and it was felt cleaner to start a new company. Unfortunately, that business partner has since had to leave Conaptic for health reasons.
Paul Robinson continues to lead Conaptic, and the company has continued to grow in both number of clients and employees.
