Assisted Development:

Every company is different and has its own individual character and culture that needs to be addressed. Working together with you on finding the most suitable solution for your objectives is our main focus. We coined the expression ​Assisted Development​ to describe what we do.

This means we have a holistic approach. We listen to your ideas and to the results you want to achieve. We guide you through the process of realizing them. Besides the technical aspects, we also contextualize the project in its social, economic and political environment. In the end we help you acquire a complete new methodology and develop the required strategy and tools. You will then be able to ”walk on your own” to reach future objectives. Our goal is always to enable you to achieve a well documented, efficient, extendable and maintainable solution.
