Story

In 2005, two engineers decide at their young sons’ swimming class that they want to start a business together. At this point in time, both of them have already been gaining practical experience for years – one as an architect, the other as a head of department for environmental foreign aid projects. What unites them is a penchant and a deep understanding for IT structures, an additional area they are in charge of at their respective workplace, as well as the desire for a “good” software solution for team collaboration.

In 2007, Poolarserver is founded. The objective is to simplify the collaboration of people in cross-location offices and projects in the construction sector. This newly developed solution will be compliant with the KISS principle – keep it simple [and] stupid and be intuitive to use.
Since 2012, we operate under the name Poolarserver GmbH. We still believe that software is supposed to adapt to humans, not the other way around. We still adhere to the task of developing solutions that are intuitive to use by reducing them to their essentials and to a good structure.

Work Process

analyze

[prepare]

At the beginning, there is listening and understanding (or rather the objective of wanting to understand). We analyze and consult, e.g. regarding the implementation of conclusive and structuring file keys.

customize

[cook]

With the second step, we customize our solutions for your needs and project requirements. This is about fine-tuning the configuration – for an ideal adaptation of your wishes or as a standardized ready-to-use solution.

accompany

[serve]

During the operational phase, you’re not on your own: unlimited support is included in the service we offer. It’s up to you to decide if you want to act as administrator yourself or if you want us to handle the server-sided project management. We support you in every way.

Founding and Birthplace

Our first address is entwined with stories. Where carpets are said to have once been stored and later church services to have been celebrated, Poolarserver finds a home. We like the central location and the daily lunch at the regular eatery, where well-known faces from the nearby state parliament can be studied over a meal.

Stäffele Days

While people passing by the Stäffele – Stuttgart’s many outdoor stairways – are sweating in the summer heat of Stuttgart’s city basin, we enjoy a natural cooling due to the Northern semi-basement location. Here, we experience our exciting start-up days and the company gets its first additions. In 2012, Poolarserver becomes a GmbH – a Limited Liability Company.

Backyard Stories

The first office is starting to be too small. We want to stay in the neighborhood and find a larger place for the growing team in the second row. Here, it is greener and denser at the same time – with some neighbors with whom we are still in good contact today. And a long-held wish is fulfilled: our own billiard table.

Many Balls in the Game

Where previously everyone was responsible for everything, we have now reached a workforce for two team areas: Development and customer service. When the existing office premises become too cramped in the anniversary year, we take a chance with a more modern office space in a central location. And of course the billiard table gets to come along as well.

New Ways of Working

This year has changed us. For the first time, the workforce at the office is clearly structured, even while the team continues to grow. We get to know new ways of working together and build new tools for us and for our customers that support us in our ventures.
