The best solution with the latest technology
In 1975, a small computer shop is established in Bleichenbrücke street, Hamburg. By developing software for customers with mainframe computers, the company gradually establishes a second mainstay to ensure the sound growth of the business.
In the early 80s, the course was set for the future: the head of the German operations of a large Scandinavian clothing chain steps into the store and, after briefly consulting with the developers, asks them to create software for the chain's allocation and replenishment processes.
Step by step, software is developed which, today, is still based on the original concept and is still used by this multi-store chain that operates more than 3,000 shops worldwide.
In 1991, the company-specific solution is turned into a Windows-based standard software. The idea that company software should run on such “toy” computers was initially ridiculed.
