When did you have the idea for APOOS?

The basic idea for APOOS came to me in the year 2003. In the course of two development starts and in the time after that, the project idea was developed bit by bit. Mehr lesen

Start No. 2 from 2011 to 2017

After failure of the first development start from 2008 – 2009, I decided in 2010 to go again on agency search. Now even more critical than before.

The search.

The search turned out – as in the past – difficult, that interest in larger contracts with agencies in Germany was very reserved. So I decided to turn my gaze abroad. Under the heading „Offshore Software Development“ I came across the company DRC Systems from Ahmedabad in India.

On the history of the original idea of APOOS. In 2003, I was traveling more often and became more and more concerned with the subject of websites. The proportion of sophisticated websites was rather low on the market and usually limited to one topic.

The Problem

With the keyword Shopping, Dating or Community you will usually come up with a website. This website then specializes in a topic. That means for the user the more functions he would like to use on the Internet, the more accounts he must create. This has several disadvantages: Mehr lesen
