Individual software plays an important role in German companies. According to studies by the Experton Group, about 70 percent of all German companies use individually developed software for the digital support and optimization of production processes and workflows as well as in the areas of project management and marketing.
If you look at large companies with more than 2,500 employees in the study alone, the deployment rate even rises to around 87 percent. Standard software, such as the best-known giants Microsoft and SAP, are not sufficient in many areas to meet the requirements of efficient economic development in the company and quickly reach their limits.
The use of individual software is necessary for economic and future-proof production planning and merchandise management with ERP systems (real-time software, enterprise systems) and CRM solutions (customer relationship management) on local servers and in the cloud. In the mechanical engineering sector in particular, companies can gain considerable competitive advantages through the use of individual solutions.
