  • We continually assess real needs together with clients and partners. After all, who knows better which problems need to be solved than the people who are faced with them every day?

  • Universally applicable. As a link in an international chain, we help clients the most when our applications can also be used in other ports. That’s why we develop open source whenever possible.

  • Facilitating through open data. Value creation for our digital business development climate, with our community benefiting from making data available.

  • Focus on solutions for today with a view to the day after tomorrow.
