cplace in the context of current IT trends


Over the last 15 years, platform software has established itself as the preferred solution in many industries, such as e-commerce, and is characterized by standardization, flexibility and cost efficiency. It offers high scalability and a variety of customizable functions and tools that cover a wide range of requirements.


A particular advantage of platform software such as cplace lies in customizing, which enables adaptation to specific needs, improves user-friendliness, ensures seamless integration with existing systems and at the same time increases scalability and competitiveness. This leads to significant cost savings and facilitates customization compared to individual solutions.


The introduction of microservices has further increased the flexibility of platform software. It uses state-of-the-art technologies and approaches, while traditional legacy solutions are based on older technologies and often cannot keep pace with current developments. Nevertheless, these legacy systems retain their importance in certain areas. Modern systems can integrate and utilize these relevant components of legacy systems. cplace has all these advantages and more.


The advantages of cplace in detail


cplace offers a wide range of possibilities:

  • No-code functionality: allows non-programmers to create data models and layouts that accurately reflect project requirements. Live customizability: changes can be made in the shortest possible time.
  • Low-code development: Offers developers and interested specialists the opportunity to extend data models with required processes and to integrate automation and additional functions.
  • Pro code capacities: For more in-depth customizations and developments that extend or modify the core functionalities of cplace. The result is a solution that is fully tailored to your needs.


Business Case


A concrete example of cplace’s effectiveness is its use at a large automotive supplier, where cplace helped to optimize project management processes, resulting in significant time and cost savings.


For example, before modernization with cplace, task management involved almost 20 steps from opening the software used to closing it after processing and documenting the task, with almost twice as many fields having to be filled in manually or processes having to be initiated. In addition, there were purely textual descriptions, statuses and assignments that made efficient management impossible, as no dedicated data structures of the necessary complexity were possible. At the same time, the software was used very differently for this reason, as not all requirements were covered and therefore no clear process existed.


With cplace’s unique flexibility and adaptability, we were able to solve this problem. Working closely with the subject matter experts, we were able to reduce the steps from almost 20 to 5, automate almost all manual processes and entries except for the most necessary data and define a fixed process embedded in the project management.


As a result, the new task management system was chosen as the most popular change compared to the old system and has significantly increased the client’s efficiency.
