A digital workspace for one's own employees can also be realized with a platform.

Both platforms and portals are a helpful way to offer business partners and customers a unique added value in obtaining information and at the same time to bind them to the company. Through portals and platforms, information is distributed quickly, they regulate processes and user rights can be determined. The functions can be continuously developed. Platforms and portals should be used as an opportunity to guarantee customers, employees and partners quick and easy access to the information they need, to promote communication, but also to gather information about the target group.

This is how it works

Important approach in the realization

When developing platforms or portals, it is of particular importance not to consider only the technical aspect. The application should enable the user to use it easily and intuitively, but the business aspect is just as important to consider. The entire structure of the targeted solution as well as the service offering must provide a certain added value for both the user and the company. Since the development of a platform or portal can become a complex issue, we attach great importance to ensuring that the solution works for you afterwards not only technically, but also economically.

If you would like to learn more about our approach, we look forward to hearing from you.

Frequently asked questions

It all depends: What external factors need to be considered for development? Is there already a corporate design? Have all functional requirements already been worked out? Do contracts with a payment provider still have to be concluded? Basically, you should plan at least 3-6 months for the complete development of a portal.
A frequently asked question is that of the costs. Here, too, the answers could not be more different. Should it be a first prototype or do you already want a fully grown product? How many functions need to be integrated? Is there already a corporate design? Should we support you with the requirements analysis? Usually small portals can be realized starting at about 8,000 EUR plus VAT. Medium-sized applications quickly move into the range of 50,000 - 60,000 EUR plus VAT, upwards there is practically no limit.
Typically, you first arrange a free initial meeting with us, in which we get to know each other and we can give you an initial assessment of your project. You then work out a list of requirements alone or together with us in (a) further appointment(s), on the basis of which we can provide you with a fixed price offer. After the assignment, we get to work and keep you constantly updated.
Absolutely! This is even an advantage. Due to our long experience, we have already worked with several industries and can gladly give you tips and advice even during the idea phase. We can identify obstacles and hurdles together with you and even save you time in the end.
As a rule, this is possible. However, this depends on which technologies the existing software uses. Talk to us!
We ourselves focus exclusively on what we are good at: Development. However, we work with server providers / cloud providers / hosters and can seamlessly connect to them. Where we stop, the hoster can start.
Due to our many years of experience, we can also score here. The security of the application is very important to us and is already considered from the beginning. We can also provide rudimentary advice on data protection issues and work together with legal counsel for more complex cases.
