Do you have questions or an idea?
Let us talk about it personally and without obligation.
Individual software development for the TU Dortmund
For the Faculty of Economics at the Technical University of Dortmund, we have developed a fair and efficient seminar tool, which simplifies and accelerates the drawing of the seminars compared to the previous manual process. This not only saves resources of the employed specialists and teachers, but also creates a fair basis for the students for the distribution of the coveted seminar places.
Atlas Copco dryer comparison for distribution
Atlas Copco is a world leader in compressor technology. Compressors also include compressed air dryers, which remove the water vapour from the compressed air before it reaches its point of use.
The Atlas Copco dryer comparison makes it easier for sales staff to advise their customers on which compressed air dryers are best suited under which conditions and for which application. Of particular interest in this project are the different formulas for calculating energy efficiency and return on investment for energy-saving models.
Implementation of a webapp for the visualization of building inspections
On an interactive map of a factory site, the most important key figures for the various buildings can be viewed and various filters can be applied. In this project there was a high focus on UI/UX, the interactive map is fully responsive and can also be operated by touch. The usability is intuitive and picks up on the best practices of popular navigation apps.
Individual Software Development of a Qualification Platform / Award Marketplace for the REGIONALE 2025
For the Südwestfalen Agentur GmbH we developed a qualification platform for the submission of project applications within the REGIONALE 2025. For this purpose, a software was programmed that, in addition to the submission, also enables multiple processing and review of the applications and simultaneously functions as a communication platform for the agency and project contact partners.
It is an individual software development based on PHP, MySQL, ZendFramework3, Bootstrap and jQuery.
Custom software development of a product configurator and an intranet sales tool for a leading manufacturer of compressor technology
The customer is a Swedish, internationally active industrial group based in Nacka near Stockholm and known worldwide for leading compressor technology. In order to simplify the internal sales processes, we developed a modern web-based software tool. The highlight of the tool is a comprehensive system configurator, which makes it possible to conveniently put together the right compressors, filters and other accessories on the basis of certain key figures. Hello multi-user system, goodbye Excel spreadsheet.
Individual software development of a knowledge database based on Linked Data / Semantic Data
On behalf of one of the largest IT service providers in Europe, we supported the project management and realization of an extensive project for the development of a company-internal knowledge database. The goal of the project is to make knowledge in the company findable, accessible and catalogable. The underlying principle is called "FAIR data": findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable data. The data is described semantically, which makes it possible to bring data that is not directly related together into a context.
The implementation was done with state-of-the-art technologies: The application is run in the AWS Cloud on a Kubernetes cluster and is automatically deployed via a CI/CD pipeline. The AWS graph database Neptune was used to map the data semantics, with RDF as the data model and SPARQL as the query language. The application itself was implemented using a microservice architecture and programmed using .NET Core. The frontends were built as Single Page Applications (SPA) with Angular 7 as the underlying framework. The different microservices were decoupled via a RabbitMQ message queue.
From conception to go-live of the first complete version took 1 year, since then the application has been in constant development. The EXWE team was able to provide effective support to the end customer thanks to its previous project experience in this area, thus making a major contribution to the success of the project.
Individual software development of an intranet communication platform for a big player in the European sports retail industry
The Dortmund agency ElephantsCanJump commissioned us with the implementation of an in-house communication platform for a leading company in the sports retail sector. The tool encourages dialogue between all employees throughout Germany and thus promotes both the exchange of experiences and the working atmosphere.
The backend programming based on Zend Framework 3 was done in close coordination with the customer and is constantly evolving due to feedback from all users to date.
Automation of recruitment processes & hiring procedures for a major European sports retail chain
I. Online OnBoarding for new employees
One of the fastest growing companies in the German sports retail sector continues to grow and needs smart software applications that keep up with this growth technologically. For example, EXWE was commissioned by ElephantsCanJump to create an interface between recruiting and the HR department to make it as easy as possible for new employees to join the company.
The backend programming based on Zend Framework 3 was done in close coordination with the individual process owners (individuals and departments) and is constantly evolving thanks to feedback from the new employees to date.
II. Automated contract generation in the branches
The next step on the way to holistic digitized recruiting is automated contract generation for the new professionals. In large companies from the retail industry, many contracts are standardized and can therefore also be generated automatically. Contract templates can be intuitively compiled from predefined elements via drag and drop. For our customer, data protection and intelligent rights & role management are the top priorities.
The completion of the work is planned for the third quarter of 2019.
III. the digital signature
Fixed-term employment contracts can now be digitally signed with a qualified electronic signature (qeS). Pursuant to Section 126 Ans. 3 of the German Civil Code (BGB), the written form can be replaced by the electronic form, as there is no provision to the contrary regarding the written form for fixed-term contracts. Companies that issue many fixed-term employment contracts can benefit enormously from this legislation by digitising the conclusion of the contract.
In the fourth quarter of 2019, we will integrate such a solution for our client into the previously developed contract management system.
Individual software development of a platform for cost optimization in steel production - ScrapOpt
Within Germany NRW is the most important steel location. Here, almost 100% steel scrap and ferroalloys are used as input materials, which also determine the majority of production costs. The aim of the ScrapOpt project is to significantly increase resource efficiency, i.e. to significantly improve material and energy efficiency, by optimising the use of materials in a way that was previously impossible.
The platform programmed by EXWE provides industrial users with an easy way to optimize input and manufacturing costs. It is a custom software development based on PHP, MySQL, ZendFramework3 and Bootstrap.
Individual software development of a project controlling application
In close cooperation with the management of Georg Maschinentechnik GmbH & Co KG, we developed a browser-based controlling software.
Project data such as current actual and planned costs are automatically transferred from the ERP system and manually supplemented with new ForeCast values. The project managers as well as the management are thus provided with a powerful instrument for individual project controlling. The system runs exclusively on the intranet.
Individual software development of a CRM, calendar and appointment management software for your leading German photo studio chain
For the up-and-coming photo studio chain PicturePeople, headquartered in Bochum, we develop modern business applications.
The main aspect for the development of an individual customer relationship management system (CRM) for the PicturePeople photo studios was the fact that the currently available CRM solutions on the market simply could not represent the required range of services that this particular customer needs. In addition to basic CRM functions, our web-based software solution therefore also integrates a calendar including scheduling options tailored specifically to this customer. This software is designed to be multilingual and is also used in the Netherlands and Austria.
Individual software development of an award-winning competence management platform
For mpool consulting GmbH - Dortmund we developed a modern, browser-based competence management tool.
makom combines an approach of flexible consulting services with modern IT technology. You get an easy-to-use and comprehensive tool for systematic competence and qualification needs analysis for your company.
Awarded with the sol.IT-award
Individual software development of a voucher and payment system for a large German chain of photo studiosOur voucher system, especially developed for PicturePeople, automates the ordering process and thus ensures, among other things, a direct delivery of the voucher PDFs to the customer. Payment can be made via prepayment, sofortkauf.de, iDeal and PayPal. Recently the system is also available in the Netherlands.
Individual software development of an application management system for the sports retail industry
The agency ElephantsCanJump from Dortmund commissioned us with the implementation of an application management system for a leading company in the sports retail industry. Besides a modern frontend for potential employees, a lot of work was invested in the implementation of an efficient backend. Our system actively supports the HR team in doing justice to the incoming applications and the people behind them. This supports the ongoing expansion of the company.
