Traditional Business Services are broken. They're inefficient, slow, uncommunicative, expensive and confusing. So we fixed it with technology, monthly fixed-price plans, single services at affordable prices, unlimited business support and simple at-a-glance data reporting with integrated Financial Services.
Our approach has always been to take our experiences in running Small Businesses, and ask ourselves - and our customers - how can we make this easier? How can we make it higher value? How can we make work for everyone?
That's one reason why at huumans we don't charge you every time you ask a question or make a request - free, unlimited support is the backbone of how we work, and we see it as the key to making Small Businesses successful through shared knowledge.
We're dedicated to your business
At huumans, we're all approachable and deeply involved - the chances are, if you choose huumans to help your business, you'll end up speaking to most of our team at some point. From Finance to Operations, to Product, Data and Tax - we're a team that's there to support you and your business, no matter what happens.

Let's make running a successful Small Business as accessible to as many people as possible
Small Business is incredibly hard work. It's stressful. It's often long hours. It forces you to master a diverse set of skills, often overnight. But few people can say they took the risk to go out there and start something new.
No matter who you are, starting and owning a Small Business can sometimes feel like an impossible task. But not everyone has the background, support or experience to start and own a Small Business from day one, and for those people the odds can feel like they're stacked against them even more.
We started huumans not from a position of 'how can we make money from Small Business?', but from a position of 'how can we help Small Business owners?'. That's because we're a team of people who have tried, failed, tried again, built, then scaled real-life Small Businesses. We're a team of people who's dealt with endless banks, predatory services and sub-standard offerings and decided to try to build the opposite of that.
From Business Services to Financial Services, Data and Knowledge, we're building a one-stop ecosystem for Small Business which is accessible, cost-effective, supportive, reliable and truthful. Because running a Small Business is hard enough.
Strength through shared knowledge
At huumans we've built an advisory board that can help us navigate volatile markets and provide us with deep insight into growing ecosystem of Business, Financial and Data Services. Each person on our advisory board has been chosen through their proven history of supporting Small Business, and their knowledge of the challenges of owning and maintaining a Small Business.

Yes we do. Sole-Traders, Corporations, Partnerships, Non-Profits, and beyond, we support every type of business.
It really depends. We have a dedicated onboarding team who is used to making sure everything is as simple and straightforward as it can be. Ultimately it comes down to how organized your business is - if you have everything filed, categorized and ready to go, migration can take under a week!
We do support Quebecois business, however we communicate in English. We are also limited in providing some services relating to Tax and Finance due to provincial laws.
Our basecamp is in Calgary, Alberta. While we're based in the prairies, we have staff and teams nation-wide across Canada who have a deep understanding of the many differing provincial requirements local businesses face.
Yes, all our staff are accredited to the required level and have displayed the high level of experience required to work directly with our customers. We take this very seriously, because at huumans, you get direct access to our staff for day to day support. This means we invest heavily in training our staff and making sure they stay up-to-date with any provincial or federal changes.
We get asked this question a lot, and with so many software vendors out there it can be confusing for everyone. At huumans we use tried and tested cloud accountancy solutions which offer the best range of integrations. If you have a certain software in your business that is critical to you, we can usually support it. Before you join huumans, we go through every aspect of your business, including the software you use, and work with you to find a solution.
We recognize that online payments, POS and e-commerce platforms are now an integral part of any Small Business. We'll work with you to make sure that the systems you have in place are supported.
No! We'll pay the bill for you.
