With the successful GEMOS system, which integrates all the technical subsystems into a central, simple-to-operate interface, ela-soft counts amongst the market and technology leaders in this sector. At the Head Office in Berlin, and at the branches in Offenbach and Velbert, highly-qualified employees are involved in the development of specialized software and hardware solutions, and offer service and project control close to the customer during the system start-up phase. Over 750 implemented interfaces and more than 1000 installed systems prove the 27 years of experience and the success of the products from ela-soft.
