Customers.

SUPPORT THE FORTUNATE 5 MILLION.

We don't build our products for the Fortune 500, we build them for the Fortunate 5,000,000. We want to provide small and medium-sized companies, like ourselves, with the means to compete with megacorps. Let's contribute to a little more fairness on the market. Why should only the big ones have the good stuff?

Approach.

GET THE ESSENTIALS RIGHT.

We think most software is overly complex. Too many features, too many settings, too much to learn. Our products do less than the competition - on purpose. What they do, they do well.

Technology Choices.

SUSTAINABLE TECH STACKS.

We have seen many technological trends come and go and we consciously rely on technologies that have proven themselves over many years and are not reinvented every six months. In this way we reduce the risk for ourselves and our customers.

Expertise.

ASK THE RIGHT QUESTIONS.

We look back on many years of experience with both small companies and startups (e.g. Clark), our own products, as well as large corporations (SAP, Commerzbank and other corporations with more than 50,000 employees). What we have learned during this time is one thing: it is always worth listening carefully and asking the right questions in advance.

SAAS, CLOUD, APIS, APPS & A PINCH OF AI.

One of our particular strengths is the development of software as a service solutions. We build stable, tested and maintainable solutions step by step. We integrate a wide range of services such as AI, payment services and other APIs into a coherent overall picture.
