Karl Friend is the founder and CEO he has a dream, the dream is to see New Zealand websites

  • Designed well

  • Turning over a profit for his customers.

He is especially enthusiastic about designing intuitive web experiences which are quick and simple to maintain.

How did Friendly Web start?

While Karl was a student at Bay of Plenty Poly tech, Karl's passion for website building became stronger and stronger. People started to notice this passion and began asking Karl for help on their websites and they found that he had lots to offer. After working with Karl they started referring people to him, and with that Friendly Technology was born.

Where is Friendly Web Heading?

Friendly Web is keen to make their mark on Tauranga and the wider region. Currently under development is our brand new Friendly Shop eCommerce system which is soon to be released. We currently have a number of websites running on the Friendly Shop platform but much is to be added to the shopping system. 

We have recently branched out into creating web software, ranging from highly customised Customer Management Systems to reporting systems. With the ever changing environment Friendly Web is looking to adapt and change to accommodate every customer that works with us with their own specific requirements.

Keen to get to know us more, call us on 0508 37 4363 or pop into our office on level 1, 120 Eleventh Ave to see what we are all about.
