QReserve was founded by scientists

They wanted to make the daily operations of conducting science easier and more efficient.

Our Story

“Where can I find a microtome on campus?” QReserve’s co-founder, Brandon Aubie, asked himself this question while working as a research technician at McMaster University in Hamilton, Canada.

Brandon lacked a solution to easily find and schedule available equipment on campus, so he built one.

Since QReserve’s inception in 2014, thousands of researchers from around the world have adopted the powerful platform to catalogue, showcase, and schedule their lab resources.

Your lab will benefit by:

  1. 1. Reduced Administrative Work

    Our users save hours to days of administrative work each month using QReserve’s smart scheduling tools and automatically-generated utilization and capacity reports.

  2. 2. Fast Adoption

    Our platform is easy to use and fast to adopt which has helped our clients easily transition to QReserve.

  3. 3. One Central Platform

    Long gone are the days of disparate spreadsheets, shared calendars and pen-and-paper systems for managing your resources. Manage all resource-related matters, including scheduling, maintenance, file storage, and user training, in one, central platform: QReserve.
