The focus of our IT services is in the areas of software development, e-commerce and web development

Software development with concept

We support you with your projects and ideas of software, web and mobile apps development. The core of our IT services & IT technologies is in software development, web development, e-commerce and app development. Based in Dortmund and Düsseldorf, EXWE develops solutions for you from your idea! In doing so, we advise you on your project and, together with you, create a concept for the further common path from your ideas, concepts and requirements. From this concept we can then derive an offer and subsequently program the solution that is right for you.

Stay independent from your service provider!

We install our developments on your own environments (intranet or internet) and accompany you during the introduction or go-live of the new application.
For us it goes without saying: Your idea remains your idea!

An online store means your start into successful e-commerce

We support your business project in e-commerce! Together with you, we develop the right online store for you and can also accompany you with special services for search engine optimization. For the areas of online marketing, we are happy to recommend our competent partners.

We go technologically ahead

Our technological focal points can be combined seamlessly. Thus we offer you a holistic solution in the three pillars software development (backend), web development (frontend) and professional e-commerce solutions, of course also optimized for mobile devices (Responsive Design).

We always stay on the ball regarding new trends in IT technologies. We have experience in integrating cloud services (SaaS and PaaS) from both Microsoft Azure and AWS into a distributed microservice architecture as well as with current UI frameworks like Angular 7+.

Nevertheless, we remain realistic: for the majority of applications, our experience has shown that a classic SQL, PHP and HTML5 / JS stack is sufficient and drastically reduces development costs.

We are happy to advise you on which technological architecture makes the most sense for your use case.

Support and maintenance

After go-live, we do not leave you alone with your new software, but continue to support you individually in the use of our solutions. For this purpose, we have designed special support offers in the areas of e-commerce (technical and content-related), search engine optimization (better findability on Google) as well as performance and monitoring.

A short FAQ about programming languages, frameworks and more
