From the idea to the finished software: Our reference projects at a glance
For an internationally operating manufacturer of compressor technology, we have developed a modern, web-based software tool that simplifies internal sales processes. The highlight of our individual multi-user system software is the system configurator, which makes it easy to put together suitable components.
By developing a qualification platform for Südwestfalen Agentur GmbH, project applications can be easily submitted, processed and reviewed. At the same time, our custom software functions as a communication platform for the agency and project partners.
Deutsche Prüfservice GmbH, or DPS for short, is the leading technology service provider for electrical operational safety and occupational health. We have programmed a dashboard for building testing especially for DPS.
For the Faculty of Economics of the Technical University of Dortmund we developed a fair and efficient seminar tool, which simplifies and accelerates the drawing of the seminars compared to the previous manual process.
User experience and high performance through the use of Vue + Symfony as basic frameworks
With this we build super fast and reactive software systems with easy to use interfaces
But what is reactivity? Reactivity in modern web applications refers to how quickly and efficiently an application responds to user interactions. A responsive web application reacts quickly and seamlessly to user interactions such as clicks, keystrokes, and mouse movements without the need to reload the page. This can be achieved by using technologies like AJAX, WebSockets, or modern frameworks like React, Vue, and Angular. We specialize in Vue, but are well versed in the other technologies as well.
However, reactive programming in modern web applications goes a step further by not only reacting to changes made by user input, but also automatically detecting changes in the data source. This means that when a value in the data source changes, the application is automatically updated without any additional instructions from the user. The data source of our choice is usually an API approach provided by the PHP framework Symfony. Symfony is one of the most popular and widely used PHP frameworks, used by many developers and companies worldwide.
Responsive web applications provide users with a faster, smoother and more engaging experience and can also improve application performance by minimizing data exchange between server and client.
Our software development process
7 steps to your software
Are you about to implement your software project and wondering how exactly the development process works in the first place? In the implementation of your project, we rely on agile software development. The process of agile software development includes six steps. During the entire incremental development process, we are in direct and transparent exchange with you. Our project management is fully mapped in the project management tool Asana.
The biggest advantage of agile software development is that you have powerful software available after only a short time. At this point, the software already contains all basic functions. In the further development process, the software can then be adapted even more specifically to the actual user needs based on user experience and your feedback. This way we achieve a continuous improvement of your software and lay the foundation for your future-proof and successful software project.
In order for your individual software to be a complete success, the first step for us is the analysis of your requirements for the software project. This also includes taking a close look at existing systems, uncovering potential for improvement and identifying your needs together. Together with you, we document your performance requirements for the project and keep a record of the time frame.
For us, transparent consulting is the foundation of successful cooperation. That's why we create an initial conceptual design with all the requirements we consider essential and feasible within the timeframe you specify. Our developers know what is important and what you need for a future-proof software. Are you planning a more complex project? We would be happy to work out a progress plan for the development of your individual software together in a workshop. In this way we can precisely formulate the offer with all the required functions and the associated time contingent. Your wishes and requirements paired with our know-how then lead to a non-binding offer, which can avoid later deviations and delays in the development process.
Planning & Design
A successful individual software needs an intuitive user interface. This is the only way users can later find their way around and efficiently integrate the software's functions into their work processes. The individual software is not intended for internal use, but is to be used later by customers? Then an individual and intuitive design is even more important! You do not have your own ideas yet? Our graphic department will gladly take over the conception of an appealing design in close consultation with you.
Now we come to the core of the project: the development of your individual software. For transparency during the development process, a direct contact person is always available to you. Regular meetings provide updates on the latest progress. Furthermore, all tasks are recorded in a detailed documentation, so that you have an up-to-date overview of performance and costs at any time.
Before we complete the software project and make the final acceptance with you, we subject our code to extensive testing. We check whether the software can be put into operation without errors and whether it meets all the previously defined requirements. Because only when our developers are 100% satisfied with the result, the individual software is considered finished.
Now the time has come. Your individual software is completely ready for use and goes live. During the whole process we are at your side and always there for you if you have any questions.
Support & Monitoring
Your individual software is already in use in your company? Even then our work is not done yet! Regular updates are essential so that the software can be used without errors in the future. At your request, we will provide you with a sufficient support & monitoring contingent to keep your software operational. Our developers deal with the maintenance and upkeep of the functionality of your services.

What is software development?
A short FAQ about software and more
What is enterprise software development?
Enterprise software development refers to the process of developing software for business purposes. This can mean that software is developed to automate specific processes in the business, such as managing customer data or tracking orders. It can also mean that software is developed to provide specific services, such as a website or mobile application. In a business, software development is usually done by a team of software developers coordinated by a project manager. The team works together to develop the software from planning to release and maintenance. In a company, the software development process is often supported with special tools and methods that help to structure and optimize the process. Software development is an important part of many companies, as it can help automate processes and increase efficiency. It is important that software development is carefully planned and executed to ensure that the software developed meets the needs of the business and functions reliably.
What is custom software development and what is standard software?
Custom software development refers to the creation of tailor-made software that is specifically designed to meet the needs of a particular company, organization or individual user. Unlike the use of standard software that is already available on the market, custom software development is usually performed when there is no existing software that meets the specific requirements of the user.
Custom software development includes the entire development process, from the analysis of requirements and the design phase to the implementation and maintenance of the software. Throughout the process, software developers work closely with the client to ensure that the software meets all requirements and meets expectations.
Custom software development can be beneficial to businesses and organizations because it offers greater flexibility and customizability than off-the-shelf software. The software can be tailored to the specific needs of the business or organization to be more effective and increase productivity.
What characterizes modern software development?
Modern software development is characterized by a number of features and trends that have developed in recent years. As an example, we would like to list five trends that have already revolutionized classic software development:
Agile methods: Agile development methods, such as Scrum or Kanban, have established themselves as popular and effective methods for developing software. Agile methods promote iterative and incremental development, which enables a faster and more flexible response to changes.
Cloud computing: Cloud computing has changed the way software is developed and delivered. Developing and deploying software in the cloud enables rapid scaling and better utilization of resources.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning: the use of artificial intelligence and machine learning has become widespread in software development. These technologies make it possible to create software that is smarter and more autonomous by identifying patterns and trends in large amounts of data.
Open standards and APIs: Open standards and APIs (application programming interfaces) enable software components and data to be integrated between different systems and applications. This promotes interoperability and data exchange between different platforms and applications.
Security and data protection: As a result of the increasing threat of cyber attacks and data breaches, security and data protection have become a higher priority in software development. Developers need to ensure that their software is secure and complies with data protection regulations.
Overall, this makes modern software development characterized by an agile, data-driven and automated approach based on open standards and a higher priority on security and privacy.
What is xUnit?
Unit is a collection of unit testing frameworks for various programming languages. Unit testing frameworks are tools that allow developers to thoroughly test individual components or "units" of software to ensure that they work properly. xUnit was originally developed for the Java programming language, but there are now versions for many other languages such as C#, Python, Ruby and many more. The different xUnit frameworks share many common concepts and features, but there are also differences in syntax and details depending on the language. One of the most important concepts of xUnit is the "test case". A test case is a single check of a unit of software that verifies that it works as expected under certain conditions. xUnit includes tools that allow developers to define and execute test cases and evaluate the results of the tests. xUnit is a very useful tool for software development, as it can help improve the quality of software and detect bugs early. It is often used in conjunction with Test Driven Development (TDD), where tests are written before implementation.
What is Reactive Programming?
Reactive Programming is a software development paradigm that focuses on creating systems that respond well to changes in their environment. Unlike other paradigms that focus on processing requests where results are provided at a later time, Reactive Programming refers to processing data streams that can change in real time. Reactive Programming focuses on processing events that occur in a system and responding to them. It does this by using observables, which represent events that occur in a system, and subscribers, which respond to those events. When an event in an observable changes, all subscribers subscribed to the event are notified. Reactive Programming is often used in conjunction with asynchronous systems where processing of requests must be fast without stalling the system. It is also commonly used in conjunction with distributed systems, where it is important that changes to one part of the system are quickly noticed by other parts of the system. Reactive Programming is a powerful paradigm that can help improve the performance and scalability of software systems and improve the response to changes in the environment. It is used in many areas of software development, including web development, mobile
What are software development companies?
Software development companies are companies that deal with the development of software. They develop programs and applications for various platforms such as desktop computers, cell phones, web apps and other devices. Software development is a broad and diverse field that includes developing new applications as well as maintaining and improving existing software. It also includes analyzing requirements, creating designs and using development tools and methods. Software development firms typically offer their services to clients operating in a variety of industries. They may offer in-house developed software for their own use or for sale. Some software development companies specialize in specific industries or technologies, while others cover a broader spectrum. Software development firms often work with project managers and clients to understand project requirements and expectations and create a plan for development. They also often assemble teams of developers who are responsible for implementing the project.
How do you get software developed today and what is a good software development process?
The way software is developed depends on many factors, such as the scope of the project, the complexity of the requirements, and the available budget. Here are some general steps we recommend to have software developed nowadays:
Requirements analysis: the first step in software development is to analyze the requirements to make sure that all the functions and features of the software are clearly defined. Here, it is important that the requirements are carefully agreed upon together with the customer or user to ensure that the software meets the needs of the customer or user.
Agile development method: We recommend using an agile development method such as Scrum or Kanban to enable a fast and flexible response to changes and to ensure that the project stays on track. But here's the thing: the development method doesn't always have to be 1:1 by example. Depending on the scope of the overall project, it is usually sufficient to roughly follow the development methods.
Cloud computing is not a must: developing and deploying software in the cloud can improve scalability and utilization of resources. We recommend examining the possibility of software in the cloud, but also always contrasting classic implementations.
Testing and quality assurance: To ensure that the software is bug-free and user-friendly, testing and quality assurance should be performed at every stage of development.
Security and data protection: Security and data protection should be included in every phase of software development to ensure that the software is secure and that data protection regulations are complied with.
Documentation: thorough documentation of software development, including requirements, design, implementation, and testing, is important to ensure that the software is maintainable and traceable.
