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 beliebe 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.
