In 2000 the company developed its first own software product, WEBfactory release version 1.0 and placed it on the market. The was the start of a success story as a software company in the European market. This was strengthened with the founding of the subsidiary WEBfactory B.C.E.E and the portfolio was significantly extended. Today WEBfactory is one of the leading providers of web-based software solutions for IIoT-driven processes and counts many large international companies among its customers.
