Leipzig, 01 February 2023 - Appsfactory was named one of the 2023 growth champions in the IT, Internet, software and services sector by Focus in cooperation with Statista. This growth was confirmed in the iBusiness Ranking, published for the first time, in which Appsfactory is placed as number 6 of the largest owner-managed digital agencies in 2022.
Long-term growth strategy
"As a company, it is always a success to be well-placed in rankings," explains Dr. Alexander Trommen, CEO Appsfactory. "A long-term strategy of growth has transformed us from a mobile-first to a full-service agency over the past 13 years. Consequently, we are proud to see our work confirmed as one of the Focus Business Growth Champions. As an owner-managed agency, to be in the top positions in the iBusiness ranking, which was awarded for the first time, shows us that our path has been successful above average. We are confident that we will place even higher in the next ranking," Dr. Trommen continues.
Individual solutions as a business model
The central growth driver in recent years has been the demand for new digital products generated by the megatrend of digital transformation. These are not bought off the shelf - i.e. standard software does not help in this area of application. In this respect, one can certainly speak of a renaissance of customised software. In recent years, Appsfactory has already realised more than 700 individual digital products. In addition, the award-winning knowledge of the Appsfactory experts is passed on to customers and partners through consulting and design projects. This results in innovative projects that create sustainable and valuable digital products. With certifications according to ISO 9001, ISO 13485 and TISAX, the quality management system (QMS) covers the increased requirements for software as a medical product as well as the special standards of the automotive industry.
