Rycor grows with its customers

Back at the turn of this century, a 97-lb Grade 9 student at Argyle Secondary School in North Vancouver, Canada had a problem: he didn’t like going to school. But he loved class and his teachers. Unfortunately he also excelled at sleeping. Quite the dilemma. Thankfully a wonderful Computer Science teacher convinced the student to attend classes and even submit a computer science project.

That computer science project was a software program to help Argyle staff collect fees and donations. Two neighboring schools bought the program. That was the beginning of Rycor.

Fast Forward 17 years to today, Rycor Software is a leading SaaS provider for school districts across North America. Still led by founder Ryan Kerr, Rycor has clients in 15 states and provinces across North America, serving thousands of schools. They depend on Rycor software to collect and manage school fees, forms and assets. Based in Vancouver, Canada, the company is growing at 30% per year, with a customer retention rate of 99% year over year.
