Facts and Vision

You need to leave the trodden path to explore new ways and gain the potential to get better every day.

Sustainable, smart, innovative – the essence of what defines our software also holds true for the d.velop employees. Enthusiasm, motivation and expertise provide a solid basis for mutually satisfying, long-lasting business relationships.

Knowledge Is the Basis for Success

The d.velop Group strongly believes that the long-term success of companies and organizations of any kind decisively depends on their ability to access and share their entire technological, organizational and social know-how with ease – in the required format and anywhere internally or externally.

The ecspand ECM product line complements the d.3ecm platform by adding solutions for Microsoft SharePoint. The foxdox line, which provides document management in the cloud, represents our third product pillar.

Hauptgebäude d.velop Gruppe

The head office in Gescher


The story of the d.velop Group started 1992 in the German city of Gescher. And the Group’s head office, d.velop AG, is still based here.

What drives our rapid growth – with 400 employees at the head office alone, more than 600 across the Group, over 8,300 customers, and a global user base in excess of 1.9 million – is much more than mere technological leadership.

The key to success is rather founded in the enthusiasm of our employees, who keep finding new ways to digitize business processes based on smart IT applications. Another component is the d.velop competence network, an alliance of highly skilled system partners located throughout Germany and Europe. This broad network allows d.velop to provide excellent customer care both in terms of customer proximity and individual service.

d.velop treats each member like a strategic partner and fully focuses on the specific customer needs, going the extra mile to achieve the joint goal of delivering a perfect project. And d.velop never stops moving – instead, we leave the trodden path to explore new ways of looking at known challenges. The result is an abundance of innovative power and the potential to get better every day.
