Our Product

Nature in flux ‒ from local individual solutions to a globally available Software-as-a-Service solution
The digitalization of administrative tasks, the use of artificial intelligence and the use of Internet technologies for nature conservation and climate protection are still in their infancy. Much information is stored in paper form and Excel spreadsheets or is in the heads of employees. Modern digital tools are only available to large organizations and are developed for each individual case. The growing importance of nature and climate protection for our society and the future of our planet makes a modern tool for the administration of nature and climate protection measures necessary. By creating a complete, modular Software-as-a-Service solution, we transform nature and climate protection from isolated individual solutions to a standardized, modern Software-as-a-Service overall solution. This will benefit all the players involved: large organizations can influence the design of the application because of their resources and the know-how of their processes. Smaller organizations can use a modern tool that meets the highest technical demands and enables smooth business processes. Due to the modular structure, packages and modules can be individually assembled. Costs are therefore only incurred for functionalities that are actually used. We will even provide the basic package free of charge for small organizations.
Modern and future oriented
From the outset, we rely on modern, powerful OpenSource technology. Thus our software is scalable and expandable as required, also with regard to future developments. A potential future extension is for example the AI-based evaluation of remote sensing data for the purpose of biological climate protection.
Web-based
The web-based approach allows easy installation and maintenance. In addition, web applications and the stored data are accessible everywhere and from any device. All that is required is Internet access and a web browser. This allows easy and flexible working from various devices in the office, home office or on the road.
Modular design
Our application has a modular structure and is therefore specifically adaptable to different users. An employee in the administration needs different functions than a data collector in the field. Whether personnel and contact management, land management, project planning or monitoring - choose from these and many other modules for the respective users. New modules are constantly being developed and added.
Software-as-a-Service

Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) is a form of cloud computing. This means that the software is not installed on the user's computer, but runs on a server in the network. Users access the program via a web browser.
In principle, the SaaS approach offers both advantages and disadvantages for users.
Advantages
+

Low investment costs:You do not have to pay a larger amount up front, instead the costs are spread over the entire period of use.

+

Constant development:The software is continuously developed and improved. Updates are available immediately.

+

Less work:Since the software runs as a web application, there is no effort and costs for setup, maintenance and updates. These tasks are handled by the offering company.

+

Scalable:Without great costs and effort, more or fewer licenses can be added as needed and are immediately available.

+

Platform independent:The software can be used from any device, regardless of the operating system or operating system version. This eliminates the cost of purchasing specialized hardware.

+

Flexible:Licenses are not purchased per workstation, but per user. This allows working from different devices e.g. in the home office or field service.

+

Data security:The data is backed up several times on the server and is thus protected against loss.

+

Data sharing:Data can be shared easily and conveniently.

Disadvantages
-

Running costs:A monthly license fee must be paid.This is directly offset by the lower investment costs. It should also be mentioned that running costs are also incurred when buying or self-developing software, whether through a possible support contract or in the form of salaries of permanent employees for installation and maintenance. We use the license income for the corresponding services and for the constant further development of our product.

-

Data protection:In principle, no SaaS solution is as secure as a computer that is stored offline in a vault. Furthermore, if the servers are located in the USA, the US security authorities have direct access to the stored data. Our application and the data behind it are operated with the latest security standards on servers within multi-secured data centers in Germany. This means that the data is better secured than on most desktop systems in practice.

-

Dependence on the provider*:The software runs on computers of the provider, not with the users of the software. This results in a dependency relationship (vendor lock-in), both in terms of future pricing policy and the implementation or removal of functions.

*Dependence on the provider
We would like to go into the last point in more detail, here. It is not our aim to force a vendor lock-in for nature conservation foundations and associations. On the contrary, our aim is to use resource bundling, transparency and cooperation to create solutions that would not be possible at all in the form of individual island solutions or that are far superior to them. We want to achieve this goal together with our customers.
For this reason, the data deposited with us is stored in a completely standardized way and can be completely exported at any time. This means that no data will be lost in the event of a later change. We also commit ourselves to a transparent pricing policy. In addition, we are planning a "Freemium" solution in which smaller organizations can use the software with a limited range of functions free of charge.
