Supple Software was founded by Ralph Smith to market his Product X software. It was originally installed in a home office, but moved into its present space two years ago. It has added several new products, and has acquired shelf space in the retail market.

2.2 Company History
Supple Software, Inc. was founded in Ourtown as Infoplan, a sole trader. In its second year it was registered with Companies House as Infoplan, Ltd. Two years later it was registered with Companies House as Supple Software, Ltd. Infoplan, Ltd. was dissolved.
For most of its existence, this was a one-man consulting company supporting a product company. It kept a very conservative stance on products, advertising with very slim budgets, with marketing depending mainly on published reviews and direct sales, until the market grew.
In two years ago we introduced a new, break-through Product X, that was the first effective task X software with bundled spreadsheet and word processor along with automatic charts.
