In 1998, Alderik Bos (1969) launched a small-scale, local Independent Service Provider, Liftservice Rijnmond, in collaboration with two business partners. Within three year’s time, the company grew to employ just under a hundred employees. Following the sales of his shares in 2001, Alderik started his own consultancy Liftintermediair. The organisation focused on the exploitation of lifts.
In 2018, Alderik sold his consultancy when he met an investor who helped him realise a long-standing dream. Since 2009, Alderik had been working to digitise the paper lift book. A wish that began to materialise when he attached a sensor to a lift to count runs.
Alderik’s ideas gave birth to our free Liftmanager® software and a universally compatible lease sensor: Liftboxs®. With Liftinsight, Alderik now works on a worldwide roll-out of his concept.
Liftinsight helps companies work more efficiently and transparently – thus, save money. The insights companies acquire help them invest resources where they are needed and leverage financial margin. Alderik’s solution creates room for craftsmanship, reduces environmental impact, and helps Independent Service Providers improve customer satisfaction at lower costs.
Alderik has 20+ years of experience in lifts. Besides his role as CEO at Liftinsight, he presides the Technical Committee of the Dutch Association for lifts and escalators (VLR). He is also a member of the Cyber Security Committee of the European Lift Association (ELA).
