The Freiburg-based software developer and low-code development pioneer looks back on its most successful year since the company was founded in 1998. At 10 million euros, United Planet was able to increase its annual turnover by 25 percent in comparison to 2019.
Freiburg, January 30, 2020. Low-code development is and remains a formula for success for companies that want to boldly face the challenges of digitalization. Studies from Forrester Wave™ in recent years confirm this. Companies’ acceptance of this progressive application development technology continues to grow. This increases turnover and makes way for high growth rates.
The success of customers and partners speak for themselves. Low-code development facilitates the creation of individual and bespoke software solutions, which enable companies to quickly adjust to changing market situations. The “digital workplace” created with low-code development pools data from different departments and external applications to create a perfectly networked user experience. Characteristics that are in demand today more than ever before.
The market analyst, Forrester, assumes that the worldwide market for low-code development software will grow to 15.5 billion US dollars by the end of 2020.
In addition to financial success, the staff at United Planet continues to increase. With a 20 percent growth rate last year, the total number of employees at the software developer has grown to 120 colleagues.
“As a leading provider of low-code platforms, the current digitalization trend is palpable for us. By continuing to increase our personnel, we want to better position ourselves for the constantly growing demand,” says Katrin Beuthner, Managing Director of United Planet GmbH.
However, the successful 2019 is no reason to fall into complacency for United Planet: There are exciting new developments afoot, and the company has a lot planned to provide its customers with even better support on their path to digitalization.
