WaWision: how a homebrew ERP/CRM software and evolved into a comprehensive project and production management tool...
...for electronic engineering and parts placement
From hardware production to the WaWision ERP software system, our company has an unconventional but fascinating story to tell. Embedded projects was founded back in 2007 and originally produced microcontroller boards sold through its own online store. Sales were strong along with rising administrative costs. The need for ERP software tools quickly became obvious. The search began for a Linux-based system that could be operated using a browser. For Benedikt Sauter and his team it was essential that the core technology was not the property of any one supplier. At that time there was just nothing available to the newly formed Tech-Startup that met their requirements precisely – necessity, they say is the mother of invention so WaWision was born.
