Licorice is a team of like-minded people, with backgrounds in software development and a deep passion for IT support services.
We’re experienced business builders, with a world-class team who share our vision.
Our aim is to build the IT software we’ve wanted for years – but have never seen – that’s super-fast, is freely integrable, and is backed by direct experimental data.
We’re really excited about the possibilities Licorice has for the IT community, all our quality of life, and the perception of our industry.
Everyone loves IT workers, globally
It’s the information age, yet it seems IT professionals are not universally loved. We aim to change this.

IT software fundamentally hasn’t changed for 30 years. If you’ve ever thought “there’s got to be a better way than a never-ending list of tickets,” you were right.
