Smart and proven: Our approach
Each of our projects is unique, from complex energy plant maintenance to retail logistics. In order to make our efficiency measurable, we always rely on certain values, which differentiate our solutions from the industry average:
We develop iteratively and in close consultation with the customer. The close proximity to the customer has proved to be a key success factor especially in the area of medium-sized companies. Based on this proximity, we are able to adapt even complex business applications on a step-by-step basis and thus cost-effectively to customer requirements by means of a gradual approach to the desired solution.
We trust in our in-house framework. Our self-developed and multi-platform platform allows us to design software that offers the greatest freedom and development potential, regardless of external capacities.
We do not sell software but service. The proximity to the customer has shown us: solutions do not end with the implementation. Our portfolio extends from the development of new software products and their cloud-based provision, through the consultation of planned IT projects to customer support, even after the completion of a project.
All-in-one and beyond: Our Reportheld
Reportheld is an industry-independent solution that enables companies to optimally shape the processes and communication of their teams in the field.

Young and promising: Our history
In our comparatively young company history from the foundation 2013 to the present, we are proud of every milestone, the small as well as the big ones.
The background of Tobias Hertkorn as a graduate physicist with a passion for IT projects marked the start of groupXS. After working as a senior software developer at Bauer Verlag and as a Senior Premier Field Engineer at Microsoft, he founded groupXS in 2013. In addition to software development, he is also responsible for managing the GroupXS strategy today.
In 2016, Sebastian Schmidt joined the company as another managing director. After completing his studies, he worked for eight years as a graduate consultant, then as an M&A manager at Ernst & Young in Munich. He knows the potential of powerful IT solutions and knows that processes are not improved with PowerPoint slides alone. GroupXS is responsible for sales and marketing as well as project and process management.
Beginning with the first employees in 2013, groupXS now employs more than ten developers, designers and project coordinators in individual software solutions. In addition, groupXS relies on an experienced network of free software developers in other European countries.
