The management calls on the employees in regular direct exchange to develop their own solutions, we leave room for creativity and promote innovative ideas. Innovation is a task in which all employees are involved; a shared responsibility. And of course we also set incentives for particularly innovative employees.

Fleet Software that sets Standards

community4you has made a name for itself with its comm.fleet product line. This includes:
The Chemnitz-based company became one of Europe's leading providers of vehicle fleet software with the approach of developing an integration platform itself, which is unique for a medium-sized company. A step that otherwise only global players such as IBM, SAP, Microsoft, Oracle, Google or Apple take.

The community4you integration platform, called open-EIS, ensures that the in-house standard software and mobile applications can be customized to the highest degree and used in practically any IT environment without being tied to operating systems. Every customer receives a tailor-made solution that corresponds 100% to their standards and processes - as software as a service from the cloud or locally installed on premise. No other fleet software on the market is so flexible to use.

The software and mobile applications from community4you have a modular structure and can be combined with one another to form a comprehensive mobility management system. But the individual modules also fit seamlessly into existing systems and even network third-party software. This increases transparency and facilitates controlling, saves time in data maintenance and enables the comprehensive automation of business processes.

Staying on Top of the Competition

In recent years, the focus of innovation work at community4you has been on artificial intelligence and mobile applications for fleet managers and fleet users. Here, too, the company set new standards: With the comm.mobile product, community4you does not offer a stripped-down compromise for the smartphone, as is common with apps from other providers, but a full-fledged business application with maximum performance on mobile devices.

The development in the software area is extremely fast. Our innovative strength is our main asset and our life insurance. Our aim is and will remain to set trends and constantly redefine the standard of our industry.
