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.
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.
At cplace we bring together experts from selected industries to engage in a productive conversation about experiences, solution approaches and innovative ideas.
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.
Open software platform
The Shared Source concept meets individual requirements and makes innovative solutions available quickly and iteratively while safeguarding the product vision and its roadmap.
Joining forces for joint success
Our community is constantly working on improving and expanding the cplace platform.
Involving the individual user
