Who we are

Vision & progress

There are approximately 35000 IT companies in Germany, Austria and Switzerland combined. Of these, less than 800 companies have one or more products of their own. HighPots belongs to those companies that have successfully developed and operate their own products. So we are not only a service provider, but also a manufacturer. And also we are looking for good IT staff to balance load peaks.

Thus, we not only have experience in release management and maintenance of software products, but it is also easy for us to identify with the situations of our customers. HighPots operates with about 130 IT experts on the market. Our focus is on software development, requirements engineering (technical

requirements management) and data analysis. All 3 areas are required to successfully implement machine learning for our customers. See also the Data Analytics Case Study from our cooperation project with the University of Oxford.

We work closely with HighPots to implement ideas and innovations very quickly using new high technologies and bring them to market. With HighPots we have an intensive partnership in product and software development since 2011. They were the first partner to develop and implement an application on our new web-based booking platform "Amadeus Selling Platform Connect". We highly appreciate the cooperation with HighPot's highly qualified team in the role of think tank, technology integrator and SW development service provider. See the full reference customer video (in German) here.

HighPots is an SAP implementation and development partner. HighPots develops our Partner Connect product and connects many different travel, insurance or financial service providers to SAP Concur. HighPots develops high quality software very reliably and also quickly. Every audit and certification of the developed software performed by SAP was without any objections. HighPots services included requirements identification, technology selection, requirements implementation, and technology implementation. Beyond technology, we also work closely with HighPots in both innovation development and technology strategy. The company is a technology think tank with an eye for the big picture and a good feel for how the markets are developing. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Meinungen unserer Partner

Rüdiger Off

Head of R&D

In terms of my university education, I am a natural scientist and engineer. But my job description is now more like that of a juggler.

I always make sure that all the balls - whether sales, software development, marketing or R&D - run in an orderly path; of course, I constantly adjust the paths to the dynamics of the market and the technological progress.

What applies to all employees of HighPots also applies to the management: we are given working time to develop our own ideas, services or prototypes, to try them out and to present them to customers.

I also use my time to develop new research methods. As a physicist and engineer, I combine scientific methods with methods from epistemology, process philosophy and the sociology of knowledge. In my "old days" I even enrolled again at university to study sociology for this purpose.

HighPots was founded in the 1980s as a tutoring association to help students. The idea of helping is still firmly anchored in the HighPots DNA - regardless of whether it is still a matter of pupils/students, adults or organizations.

To me, there is no more beautiful sense than purposeful, peaceful and lively interactions and the realization of a common goal that everyone involved is burning for.

In this respect, every new working day is a (grounding) event for me. In the process, a great joy and curiosity develops, which I transfer to colleagues, customers and partners.
