We develop optimization software for a wide variety of industries based on Artificial Intelligence and Operations Research. Our solutions awaken enormous innovation potential and drive the digital transformation with our customers.

 

Aviation

Aviation

Our software optimizes the processes of ground handling at commercial airports – from long-term planning and shift allocation to daily operation. After an aircraft has landed, over 200 processes have to be handled before it can take off again. Unforeseen events can quickly lead to failures or delays. Our intelligent systems control tens of thousands of employees every day at various airports around the globe and ensure that all processes are efficiently planned and that resources are used at best.

Inventory & Supply Chain

Inventory & Supply Chain

Here, it is all about the processes in the supply chain of companies, the management of stock and inventory optimization. Filling a warehouse with goods to the ceiling costs money. It is therefore extremely important to only store the amount of articles required by the customer. We ensure that the shelves in supermarkets, constructions markets, etc. are stocked with the right goods and also help upstream production sites or large central warehouses to optimize their inventory.

Logistics

Logistics

With the help of our intelligent INFORM software, planning and disposition decisions are optimized in real time. We ensure that all resources are used efficiently in transport and handling processes. This not only increases the revenues and the competitiveness of our customers. At the same time, it ensures that there is no idling and that pollutant emissions are reduced.

Production

Production

We support our customers in the complex task of production planning. The focus lies on machine and system manufacturers as well as single and small series manufacturers, who usually manufacture in very small quantities, very individually and with a wide variety. This also means that production planning is very multilayered and can hardly be done “by hand”. Our optimization software helps production planners to master this mammoth task by automatically and dynamically planning and controlling, so that the products reach the customer on time.

Risk & Fraud

Risk & Fraud

INFORM software supports the evaluation of risks and the prevention of fraud and money laundering. Well-known banks around the world use our software to protect their online and mobile banking business from criminals, and to protect card payments on site and on the Internet from fraud. Insurance and telecommunication companies also rely on our software when evaluating risks to establish anti-money laundering solutions, fight terrorist financing efficiently, avoid financial fraud and monitor high-risk requests.

What we stand for

Starting with flat hierarchies and an “open door” policy, we cultivate trusting cooperation and respectful interaction with one another. We work together in dynamic teams in which it is desirable that you contribute your own opinion and learn from each other. Our success is based on different perspectives: colleagues from over 30 nations contribute to innovation with their different perspectives. We are all by “you” – not compulsively, but because it suits our working atmosphere.
In addition to respectful interaction with one another, open communication and a corporate environment in which everyone is accepted, the compatibility of family and work is of course a matter for us.

Corporate Culture with the Greatest Possible Freedom

If you are looking for individual design possibilities in your job, INFORM is the right place for you! Here we learn from each other and from our mistakes. There is no top-down mentality, because everyone works together towards one goal. For us, leadership does not follow the principle of “instruction”. The managers live the principle of supporting their own team in such a way that they can act independently. We encourage everyone to take on his/her job with a lot of personal responsibility. At the same time, we support each other so that everyone can benefit from the experience and specialist knowledge of their colleagues, and thus develop personally and professionally.

Our Social & Ecological Engagement

Sustainability has long been a corporate goal of INFORM. In this way, our products actively contribute to reducing emissions. Our software solutions lead to an increase in efficiency, especially in logistics e.g. in freight traffic and trans-shipment centers. This ensures that there is no unnecessary idling and that increased pollutant emissions are avoided. But also in the course of the design of our INFORM campus, environmental awareness and sustainability are important to us.

Moreover, we care about social projects, which is why INFORM supports a large number of institutions, foundations and associations financially. Above all, local institutions from the region around Aachen are important to us.

Anne Nicole – Consulting

I know that I can rely on my colleagues Anne Nicole

What is the coolest thing about your job?

Certainly the contact with different personalities. We have customers in Singapore, Brazil, the United Arab Emirates and of course in Germany. You will gain insights into the processes and cultures of a wide variety of companies and you will constantly learn how business works in other countries, but also in the different companies within a country.

Why would you recommend INFORM to your best friend?

Because you can help shape and influence a lot here, if you want to. Because I can contribute my own ideas and design projects freely, I can freely develop personally and also get the chance to actively participate in innovations. Suggestions for improvements are not dismissed according to the motto "We always do it this way". Instead, the team listens to you and discusses your ideas.

Ruth – Development

We have an excellent mistake culture Ruth

What makes your job exciting?

On the one hand, the interesting and challenging mix between user experience and software development. In UX design, my creativity is required, while pure development tasks are about logical concepts and the technical implementation. On the other hand, there is always something new to do or learn in my job. Designing new solutions and writing really good code is my passion.

What has been your noteworthy work experience in the past six months?

In our area, we always end the year with a hackathon. Here we have the chance to try things out for a few weeks that we think are useful and have always wanted to do. This creates fantastic things that really help us. At a hackathon, for example, I created a completely new design for our planning client and then implemented it.

Brigitte – Quality Assurance

I appreciate the flexibility Brigitte

What sets INFORM apart as an employer?

The fact that you can combine work and family really well. I don't think there are many companies that can do it like INFORM. I really appreciate the flexibility in terms of working hours. At the time, I didn't hesitate for a moment to bring my children into the company daycare center at the age of six months. INFORM simply pays attention to many little things so that employees feel comfortable.

How does this affect the working atmosphere?

Very well, of course. The atmosphere here is very friendly anyway, almost familiar. We're all on first name terms, regardless of whether you’re a boss or a student assistant. The hierarchies are very flat. There's also a conscious effort towards team trust. For example, company outings are all about experiencing things together. This is extremely valuable for collaboration.

Max - IT

You never stop learning Max

What motivates you at work?

In my job, I make sure that my colleagues' work runs smoothly and that collaboration tools, such as e-mail servers, Microsoft Teams or Sharepoint, always work. I support my colleagues with technical challenges, but I’m also involved in exciting projects to further expand and optimize our internal system landscape. Here I can familiarize myself with new trending topics, contribute my own ideas and help determine which technologies we want to use in the future.

What qualities should you have?

Above all, openness and the ability to work in a team. We usually work in smaller project teams. This means that internal knowledge exchange, joint solution finding and close communication are of course a matter for us. Moreover, you should be open to new challenges and situations and also have fun discovering and using a variety of tools and techniques.

Guy Paulin – Support

We learn a lot from each other Guy Paulin

How have you settled in at INFORM?

Getting a foothold here wasn't too complicated. Even as a student assistant, I immediately felt like a full team member. I was able to gain experience quickly, I was given responsibility at an early stage and I was able to support my own customers fairly quickly. I’ve never felt like an outsider. In my environment I work with people of various origins. Through the permanent exchange you encounter a wide variety of cultures, customs and traditions. It's great, we learn a lot from each other.

What is INFORM as an employer like for you?

It's very simple: I feel very comfortable here. The social aspects, the people, the flexibility with the work – I see that all as one unit. I’m able to develop because of the good balance between family and work. Even if INFORM has grown enormously over the years, one thing has always remained the same: the personal and closeness to colleagues.
