History / Evolution

SnapBill is the brainchild of, South African founders, Jaco van Wyk and Josh Yudaken.

With a long history of constructive co-operation, they founded and introduced SnapBill as a South African beta in March 2010. After an overwhelmingly positive uptake it was launched globally in January 2011.

Jaco and Josh first collaborated in 2004, when they teamed up to develop and launch Lusion AHS – an automated reseller hosting and billing platform geared towards the needs of their clients at Lusion Technologies.

In 2008, SnapBill's founders identified the global need for a new breed of online billing system developed with adaptability and intelligent automation in mind.

The focus quickly fell on developing Lusion AHS into such a system. Through 7 years of industry use, thorough user testing, detailed debugging and extensive feature refinement, Lusion AHS was transformed into becoming the fully featured and robust SnapBill of today.

SnapBill has followed an organic evolution from a specialised automated hosting system, to a comprehensive online invoicing and billing system with powerful recurring billing capabilities.

Throughout its evolution the system has been in constant use, first by Lusion AHS hosting resellers and then by SnapBill beta users. Thus ensuring its famed practical usability, stability and strength as a fully automated billing engine.


SnapBill is privately-held and owner managed. Shareholding is distributed between its directorship and a few key employees.

SnapBill has accepted no external investment to date making it one of only a handful of independent SaaS solution providers in the world.

SnapBill is a responsible corporate entity that strives to act ethically and respectfully wherever it operates.

For its employees, SnapBill promotes a secure and stable work environment providing equal opportunities for career development.

These qualities, combined with recognition that people and relationships are some of the key ingredients for building success contributes greatly to its ability to retain talent and foster innovation.


The cornerstone of SnapBill's success resides in the skill and experience of its executive management team.

This dedicated team is charged with making final decisions, in the best interests of the company, on matters such as globalisation, organisational change, inter-company relations, competitive positioning, ethics and transparency, financial management and technological direction.

SnapBill draws great strength from its leadership team which thoroughly understand the company, industry and operating environment and possess long-term relationships with clients and partners around the world.

SnapBill's executive management team has been with the company since its establishment and was instrumental in shaping it from a start-up operation into the industry leader it is today.
