Software development from Dortmund.
Specialization in custom-fit individual software for SME and enterprise customers.
State-of-the-art software development with
Vue.js + Symfony.php
We build wonderfully easy to use and high performance web applications. Either brand new or to replace or complement your existing applications.
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 base 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 the server and client.
Our software development process
7 steps to your software
You are about to implement your software project and wonder how exactly the development process works? 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. In 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 graphics 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 performance and cost overview 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 are 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 to ensure 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.

Living and working in Dortmund
Most entrepreneurs would probably think of big cities like Berlin, Munich or Hamburg when choosing a location. For us, however, Dortmund is part of an increasingly interesting business location. What makes the third largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia so attractive to work and live in?
Almost half of the city's area consists of bodies of water, forests, agriculture and green spaces with spacious parks such as Westfalenpark and Rombergpark. This is in marked contrast to the past nearly one hundred years of intensive coal mining and steel processing right in the heart of Dortmund.
The city is also made livable by a wide range of cultural sites & museums, such as the Museum Ostwall, the Museum of Art and Cultural History, the German Football Museum, as well as theaters and music venues, such as the Konzerthaus or the Dortmund Opera.
Skilled workers and know-how in Dortmund
With a population of around 600,000, Dortmund is one of the largest cities in Germany. In addition to a large number of companies from a wide range of industries, the city is also home to numerous educational institutions. These include the Technical University of Dortmund (TU Dortmund), the Dortmund University of Applied Sciences and the International School of Management (ISM). These institutions are attracting more and more young people to Dortmund. International and national specialists are trained in Dortmund, making the job market attractive for resident companies as well and creating great innovationpotential. The founders of EXWE also met while studying computer science at the TU.
Dortmund as a business location
Dortmund's central location makes the city very attractive as a business location. Thanks to Dortmund Airport, Europe's largest canal port and its location in the middle of the Ruhr region, Dortmund can be reached quickly and easily by any means of transport. The proximity to customers, skilled workers and sales markets was also a decisive reason for EXWE's choice of location.
Due to its optimal location and more than 900 resident companies, Dortmund is one of the most important logistics locations in Germany.
Dortmund as a growing technology location
In the IT sector, Dortmund has been increasingly innovative for years and is gradually establishing an active startup scene. One example of this is the CET, which supports those interested in founding a company in the implementation of their business ideas and helps with the transfer of research into the economy.
The TechnologieZentrumDortmund also ensures that internationally active technology companies settle here and is now one of the largest technology parks in Europe. Dortmund's economic focus, in addition to trade and commerce, lies primarily in the areas of "new technologies". These include information technologies, microsystems technology, biomedicine and logistics.
Dortmund is also one of the largest software locations in North Rhine-Westphalia. This facilitates the exchange and transfer of knowledge within the industry.
