About

Our team has a wealth of experience in the field of software development and IT project management. We take pride in never losing sight of our customers' goals and attach great importance to designing projects from the outset in such a way that both time and budget constraints are met. Some of our employees contribute remotely from other European countries, but most of us work in our modern office in the heart of Berlin.
