About Us

The team behind your bespoke solution

We’re more than just experts at what we do

We’re the best

The only property management software to have a 2-way integration with Sage, Decorus for Sage has been providing landlords, lettings agents and property managers with everything they need to help their property portfolio thrive for over a decade. 

Paul, Decorus’s founder, started programming in school, when all his friends had gaming computers and he didn’t – so he taught himself to write games instead. After being approached by a few different companies to write programmes for them, Paul took the jump to go solo in 1993, working for himself by the age of 25. The very first property program he was involved in was way back at the start of the nineties, where he caught the property bug, and expanded. Getting involved with Sage in the mid-nineties led to combining the two in 1999, where Decorus for Sage as we know it today eventually began, and Paul took the leap from programming in his bedroom.
