Start-up company

Without software, nothing works in business anymore. Regardless of the first innovative business idea and the financing, start-up companies, like all other companies, depend on software to map their business processes. Start-up companies are usually active in a business area that is still emerging or that has not yet been established. A high level of dynamism is particularly characteristic of the start-up scene.

The software research via SoftGuide was extremely helpful for us. The project-related questions and answers from the software providers had a decisive influence on our selection. The written documentation of the individual providers was decisive for us. [...] We were able to select a suitable solution in this way. We already find the SoftGuide research service very optimal.

Your search was very helpful for us. Only by listing possible software providers did we have the opportunity to find competent providers. [.] From my point of view, everything went very satisfactorily. I would like to thank you also on behalf of my colleagues for the competent mediation.

I received contact details of companies that I did not know before and would otherwise probably only have found through intensive research. The information provided by the bidders led to a "pre-selection" [...]. For our purposes, your offer [note: the software research] or your support was completely sufficient. Our experience with the software providers was excellent. [...] Our goal of an early market overview was fully achieved.
