The Softwerke company was founded in 2005 and initially had five employees. The company was launched to provide software development and technical support for customers both in the foreign and Russian markets. Among the first clients were German IT-companies, utilizing third-party resources (outsourcing) when performing projects for their clients.
In 2006, Softwerke became a supplier of SAP AG (now SAP SE), which largely determined the technological profile and further development of our company. The successful cooperation with SAP SE continues to the present time and affects the development and support of applications in various technological areas, including Java Enterprise, Hana, SAP Cloud Platform, Fiori, CMS AEM, PHP/WordPress, and a number of others.
Softwerke has twice efficiently participated in the SAP Coder competition, which was held by SAP CIS in 2017 and 2018 accordingly.
Based on the experience of working with the SAP Cloud Platform in 2019, our company developed a portal that demonstrates the possibilities of integrating applications into this platform. In April 2021, Softwerke was awarded the status of SAP silver partner.
Since 2013, the company has been providing services for programming systems on CMS AEM for foreign and Russian customers. From 2016 to 2018, the development of promo-sites was successfully carried out on the orders of Efes Rus. In 2017, Softwerke became a Community Partner of Adobe, and a bronze partner since 2020.
Another technological direction in the field of our web development is the Liferay platform, on the basis of which Softwerke developed an intranet portal for JSC “Nevsky Cosmetics” in St. Petersburg (2012), a new version of the analytical portal CIMS 6.0 commissioned by Consline AG in Munich (2020), as well as its own portal of foreign language courses lingvomaster.org.
Boasting experience in organizing and conducting projects in the field of software development and building effective interaction with customers, the company successfully implements projects in various areas of programming. In July 2013, a team of ERP Axapta specialists was formed in Sotfwerke, and for a year effectively provided programming services in projects of SPH AG (Stuttgart). In 2019, the company resumed this business direction, becoming a service provider for the machine-building enterprise in Cologne.
In July 2017, a group of specialists was created in the company to develop a print preparation program for 3D printers commissioned by BEGO GmbH (Bremen). The application was successfully put into operation in March 2018 and was well received by users, and 3D programming has become another technological direction of Softwerke.
Despite the importance of the accumulated experience and well-established processes that the company can justifiably be proud of, we consider our team the core key to success. The company nurtures cooperation and friendly attitude to each other, and builds appropriate conditions for each specialist’s productive work.
Since 2013, Softwerke has been actively cooperating with ITMO University. Undergraduates and graduates have the opportunity to complete training and practical internship in the company. From 2013 to 2018 only, 15 specialists, 25 bachelors and 9 masters have successfully defended their theses on the topics proposed by the company. Many of the graduates have chosen to start their career in Softwerke.
In 2020, the company’s turnover reached RUB 176 million. Today, we have over 70 employees.
The company’s office is located in the heart of St.Petersburg, on Vasilievsky Island in the comfortable Preobrazhensky business
