Bytelab is founded by Jakob Lykke Hansen and a friend from the University back in 2001. In the first few years, different projects are being solved including everything from websites and web shops to a credit card gateway for a Swiss bank, a shopping portal for municipalities and a system for the Danish real estate company home that could automate the production of marketing materials etc.

2008

The system is Bytelab’s first product for the automotive industry which has the purpose of offering a complete and user-friendly software system for customers, who wish to offer car leasing. BCC is continuously being improved with new functions and an even better user-friendliness as well as the opportunity of handling financing of cars.

2010

Bytelab launches Bytelab Car Rental

With the increased focus on the automotive industry, Bytelab launces a car rental system which is a user-friendly product for customers who wish to manage a larger or smaller fleet of vehicles for rent. By launching Bytelab Car Rental, the affiliation to the automotive industry is strengthened.

2014

Bytelab is rehoused temporarily

In 2011, Bestseller buys Rømerhus and decides to renovate the building in 2014. Rømerhus was built in 1895 and through the years it has accommodated various clothing stores, speciality shops and liberal professions . In all those years, it has had a stylish touch. Thus, it was necessary to make an extensive restoration where the whole building is turned upside down both inside and outside. Therefore, Bytelab was temporarily rehoused at Lille Torv in Aarhus C while the reconstruction took place.

2017

Bytelab moves back into Rømerhus

In 2017, Bytelab moves back into a completely renovated Rømerhus with beautiful office spaces, intelligent solutions, and a unique roof terrace.

Bytelab launches Bytelab Insurance System

eBay had developed some systems for insurance companies but they wanted to reduce their range of product. Thus, they contact Bytelab to hear if we are interested in making a solution for insurance companies with integration to Bilinfo (Bilinfo is the leading platform in Denmark for displaying car ads). We developed this product and today we have several large insurance companies using Bytelab Insurance System.

2024

2004

Bytelab relocates its office and focuses the business

Bytelab moves into the historical Rømerhus in Aarhus where we can design the 230 m2 on the second floor towards the iconic stream in the heart of Aarhus. Later on, we are provided additional 130 square metres With the relocation, the first transformation in our business strategy is also being marked, which means it become centred on the automation of document production.

2008

Bytelab becomes a joint-stock company

Until now, Bytelab has been a limited liability partnership but in 2008 it is decided to constitute a board of directors why Bytelab changes from being an LLP to a joint-stock company. This happens because the management has a desire of bringing more qualified competencies into the company to strengthen Bytelab’s market position. Initially, this means that the business strategy is being focused on the automotive industry.

2011

Bytelab strengthens its market position

In 2011, the intake of new customers happens really quickly . This is among others due to the high interest for Bytelab Car Commerce. The repercussions of the financial crisis in 2008 begins reducing which increasing the Danes’ willingness to buy cars. Leasing is also beginning to gain ground among the private consumers which creates more opportunities for the Danish car dealers to grow their businesses.

2015

Bytelab cements its business strategy

To further strengthen and streamline Bytelab, the board of directors decided that Bytelab should be a pure software business with solely focus on developing IT systems for the automotive industry. Along with this decision, some difficult choices followed where we had to say goodbye to several of our loyal customers, who we subsequently helped find new business partners.

2018

Bytelab launches Bilberegning.dk

In 2017, a new law becomes effective in Denmark which means that the market value for all leasing cars have to be recalculated within four months. Hence, a large gap in the market appears where Bytelab in cooperation with KMPG Acor Tax launches Bilberegning.dk in February 2018. This makes the entire recalculation of the registration tax much easier and more manageable.

2019

Bytelab takes the 4th floor in Rømerhus

From 2016 to 2019, Bytelab’s staff of employees grows significantly by more than 100% why it becomes necessary with more square metres. It results in a half floor on the top level at Rømerhus with a terrific view of the centre of Aarhus.
