Developer/Partner

In times of the worldwide web there are two strategies to create good software either as a giant corporation or as a network of development teams.

Large providers focus foremost on market shares while the customers can often be. The individual customer has little to no influence on product development. Networked systems instead combine different interests and are characterized by a large number of individual developers solving very practical challenges.

In times of the worldwide web there are two strategies to create good software either as a giant corporation or as a network of development teams.

Large providers focus foremost on market shares while the customers can often be. The individual customer has little to no influence on product development. Networked systems instead combine different interests and are characterized by a large number of individual developers solving very practical challenges.

In the past years, open source projects gained experience and maturity. Professionally managed projects combine the development power of countless programmers with experience and focus of professional operating companies and organizations. Many examples like Linux, Ubuntu, Firefox, Open and Libre Office among many others benefit from sophisticated development methodologies that are based in cooperation. The quality of these projects speaks for itself.

We support the operating systems of major manufacturers but we do not limit ourselves to them because doing so would limit our customers as well. Good software products and good developers influence our direction and not the limitations of a software company.

We do not want to only benefit from the fruits of good open source projects but also give back.

That is why we have established our graphical interface as an open source project. We provide a development environment that allows you to create advanced commercial applications in the shortest time.

As the next step, we will open our ERP software to the developer network and want to develop even better applications developed and used in common. We are already inviting all interested developers to contact us.
