In multiple sectors German products enjoy an excellent reputation. The German federal association IT-Mittelstand e.V. (BITMi) has recently awarded DRACOONs Enterprise-Filesharing-System the seal “Software Made in Germany“ and “Software Hosted in Germany“
A well thought out design, practical solutions, fully developed production methods, constantly inspiring solutions and a competent client service are characteristics that are especially important for German software applications. For exactly these solutions that combine first rate service, quality and sustainability a seal was created in 2011. With this seal “Software Made in Germany” BITMi honours convincing practical solutions that offer an excellent quality in customer satisfaction, a secure investment and a service in German. This seal was now awarded to the software manufacturer DRACOON with its enterprise file-sharing solution of the same name.
For companies that decide on a product like DRACOON this seal guarantees a locally available German-speaking contact person who is able to answer questions concerning sales, service and training. Furthermore, there is a German hotline-number. At the same time the label ensures that the German designed software is also tested in Germany and involves a German user surface and instructions. Moreover, the software entails investment safety. This means that the further development and compatibility of systems and data are contractually guaranteed.
On the other hand, the seal “Software Hosted in Germany” was designed for software manufacturers that offer internet-based solutions. DRACOON was also certified with this seal and it proves that the software and saved data are hosted in a computer centre in Germany. It also verifies that solely German (data protection) law is applied for the hosting contract between DRACOON and the client.
“We are very happy to receive these seals that confirm our fundamental philosophy”, says Marc Schieder, CIO at DRACOON. “As a German company we stand behind the German data protection law. Therefore, we would like to strengthen the property rights and the decision over the availability of data of every single person with the possibilities our software offers. That is why we recently started to get involved as a member of the German economic council. There we have the opportunity to actively engage with other companies for matters in Germany and Europe.” Schieder continues.
The economic council Germany (Wirtschaftsrat der CDU e.V.) is nationwide entrepreneurial professional organisation with currently around 12,000 members. It was founded in 1963 and represents the interests of the entrepreneurial economy towards politics, administration and the public.
