From the Community for the Community

Our user community creates custom innovations the market urgently needs. We not only develop our cplace platform for market leaders across all industry sectors – we do so together with them.

Co-Creation with cplace

Why Co-Creation and Communities?

Globalization and the digital transformation are changing the requirements software developers must meet. Conventional standard solutions are no longer able to meet today’s requirements. Rather, enterprises need custom-tailored, specific applications capable of delivering added value promptly while allowing quick and easy customization to overcome new, future challenges. This takes co-creation – a dynamic, self-adapting development ecosystem focused on addressing specific challenges.

Exclusive expertise

At cplace we bring together experts from selected industries to engage in a productive conversation about experiences, solution approaches and innovative ideas.

Joint prototyping

Our community combines efforts to develop prototypes for emerging needs, solving challenges for which individual companies don’t have answers yet.

Innovation for the cplace community

Co-creation fosters the development of innovative solutions – whether for the benefit of the entire community or for individual customers who request IP protection to generate and maintain competitive advantage.

Saving resources and costs

Developing processes and high-value solutions jointly means using resources efficiently and cutting costs.

Our Foundation: the Shared Source Model

We believe that a community-based approach will lead to better business software. Our Shared Source Model brings together expert knowledge, technology expertise as well as business and process know-how, allowing business solutions to be developed in record time – by the community for the community.

Involving the individual user

Our collaborative approach fosters engagement, self-reliance and trust. This practice ensures that the cplace platform is continuously driven forward, making it a truly user-driven and adaptable solution.

As a solution engineer, I am personally involved in many projects. In this role I continuously work together with our partners and customers. Time and again I feel satisfaction and excitement about success stories being told within the community, even when I haven’t been directly involved in the project.
