Originating in Australia, Payapps was launched in the UK in 2016 by Lincoln Easton and Geoff Tarrant. As software innovators, they saw the opportunity to create a solution that disrupts the construction industry’s reliance on traditional, inefficient methods of managing applications for payment.

At the end of 2020, Payapps, along with the other companies in the Group, received investment from IFM Investors and new Board member Leigh Jasper, previously co-founder and CEO of Aconex. The investment helps cement our position as a global industry leader in construction software and will fund a number of exciting growth initiatives.

For our team of experts and construction specialists, it’s always been about forging ahead, creating change, and remaining at the forefront of our industry – so you can do the same in yours.


Today, with over 130 staff, the Group is a leading global software provider with over 25,000 construction and building industry customers worldwide. Our Payapps UKI head office is based in Newcastle-upon-Tyne.

Our mission is still driven by the need to develop software that makes life easier for the people using it and providing a modern process for submitting and certifying applications for payment.

We keep things simple and have turned what has traditionally been a time-consuming and costly process for contractors and their supply chain members to manage, into intuitive, user-friendly functionality with best practice at its core.

Integration and collaboration


Work with us and build the future

While Payapps can be used standalone, it also integrates with all construction ERP and accounting solutions through a public API, or there are more tailored integration options, for example with 4PS and RedSky IT.  We also work closely with a number of industry associations, such as ECA and FIS. If you’re interested in working with us, please get in touch.
