In 2004, the building up of a software capable to create quotations for self-adhesive labels printed in reels was commissioned to us. Because of the multitude of technology used within our client company (Windows, OSX, Linux), we decided to develop our software using the Web Technologies.
Our target was to create a management software that did not require installation, that could be able to a update on its own, be used on any device, be ready for the technologies that would have came.

1. Ockham’s razor
“It is vain to do with more what can be done with less.”
In every solution we adopt, we choose to respect a principle of simplicity.
Simple things are easier to understand, to use and to modify.
2. built for change
We developed Gutenberg in a way that it is simple to modify.
This ERP system contains all the know-how of the company.
It would be unthinkable to use an “immutable” software, because companies themselves need to change and evolve.
