Munich, April 6th 2011 – The Munich-based software producer InLoox celebrates its 10th anniversary. In April 2001, the software house was founded in Munich – then called IQ medialab GmbH. Ten years later, the company is one of the technological market leaders in the field of Outlook-integrated enterprise software. Today, 20 percent of the companies listed in the German DAX stock exchange index deploy InLoox software. By now, the software house has a customer base of about 30.000 users in over 1.500 companies worldwide.
From the very beginning, the company has been focusing on the development of enterprise software that facilitates, integrates and accelerates business processes. Already in November 1999, a civil law association was founded with this objective, before in 2001 IQ medialab GmbH was originated. In this respect, the company has two birthdays.
An important milestone in the company history was the development of the project management software InLoox in 2004, which turned out to be the company’s flagship product. InLoox is completely integrated in Microsoft Outlook and is according to the customers very flexible and easy to use. The software combines all relevant project management features in one central platform and allows the users the integrated supervision, conception, documentation, budget management, billing and evaluation of all types of projects. The success of the project management software InLoox brought the company to change its name to InLoox GmbH in 2010 to focus on its core business.
“Our software solutions relieve the everyday work life of project managers, because we tailor them to their needs. We also, first of all, take into account the user wishes when we develop our products. Our customers appreciate that”, says Dr. Andreas Tremel, one of the two Managing Directors of InLoox. “Besides that, growing in a solid and controlled way, without outside investors and risk financing, has always been very important to us,”, adds Tiziano Panico who is also Managing Director of InLoox.
Since 2008, InLoox has its own training center in Munich, which complements the service package for InLoox customers consisting of software, support and trainings. The company also has a network of selected sales partners, who provide on-site customer services. For its proven expertise dealing with Microsoft technologies and for the ability to develop tailored solutions for its customers, Microsoft awarded InLoox with the Certified Partner status in 2010. In the same year, the company took another step towards the future – with bringing InLoox Web App onto the market, the web client for mobile project work. InLoox Web App connects teams with and without Microsoft Outlook via the Internet.
In the recent past, the company has been working on expanding its business internationally, in particular in the USA. The establishment of a branch office in San Francisco and the partnership with new InLoox, Inc. were important steps to intensify the sales and marketing activities in the United States, the most important target market of InLoox outside Europe.
InLoox was founded in 2001 in Munich/Germany. The company develops state-of-the-art software solutions fully integrated into Microsoft Outlook, that streamline and accelerate business processes. The InLoox project management software is the company's flagship product. It is used in over 1,500 companies from all sectors of business, including more than 20% of the companies listed on the German Stock Exchange Index (DAX) and by more than 30,000 users on five continents and in over 40 countries worldwide.
