1983

FOUNDED BY HELWIG SCHMITT

Grebenstein. First Helwig Schmitt and his newly founded company focus on creating market analyses for tractors and harvesting technology.

 

1986

EXPANSION INTO THE AUTOMOTIVE INDUSTRY

Demand rises. Car manufacturers are also interested in our regional market analyses and our innovative thematic maps.

 

1993

DEVELOPMENT OF THE FIRST MIS

Our calculations and presentations are so new that no program on the market can represent them. For this reason, we develop our own market information system: the MIS.

 

1996

COMPANY BECOMES A GmbH

A time of change and expansion. After new employees strengthen the team and move into new offices, the company is officially transformed into a GmbH (limited liability company).

 

1997

WINDOWS VERSION OF MIS

“Mobile” on CD and at that time a huge advantage for our customers. Centralists and dealers can now analyse their market themselves and look at the numbers and maps on the PC. At the same time, our second product, the OptiNet, is waiting in the wings for dealer network planning.

MARKET INTRODUCTION OF THE MIS 2.0
