Apus 30 years

Since 1987 we have specialized in providing software solutions for complex tasks. We plan and execute client projects with the greatest care, beginning long before the actual implementation. We approach every client relationship from a partnering perspective, and do not set out to merely sell products, but instead develop complete solutions. We accompany clients throughout the software lifecycle process, and consider that we have reached our goal only when clients are satisfied with the quality of our work and with our solutions.

Workforce Management

Workforce Management Banner

Ever try to eat a steak with a spoon?
Then why are you using an Office product for roster planning?

According to studies (BARC, Planning Survey 2016) over 85% of users do roster planning with Office products. And the same number of users have problems with their planning, because Office products aren’t designed for it. They are designed to be versatile, but they aren’t specialized.

IONIO® does it better! It helps you plan with smart functions, it shows you problems right away and it actively helps you find solutions to them. This not only makes roster planning better, it also brings impressive time savings. And IONIO® adapts to your planning, instead of you adapting to it.

“A challenge overcome brings satisfaction and also strength - someone who experiences ‘I did it!’ will have the confidence to face new and greater challenges.”
These words apply to the 21 year collaboration between APUS Software and the Geriatric Health Centre of the City of Graz, Austria. It started in 1996 when APUS supplied software for highly complex duty-roster planning. This was followed through the years by time recording, reporting, door locking systems and other high availability solutions, developed jointly with creativity and customer-friendliness. Hospital operator-spanning for customer-centric software development and legal protection in KA-AZG networks were installed in the spirit of corporate social responsibility. From GraphDi to IONIO, from ‘back in the day’ to ‘into the future’, we can only wish for many more successful years together

„The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of a low price is forgotten“

(Benjamin Franklin)

Software projects are always tightly budgeted. They have to be, to make it past the proposal phase. But once the order is in hand, the real fun begins. A minimal team has minimum time to work a maximum miracle. This cost pressure often has negative consequences for the software quality and the customer satisfaction, and problems have to be dealt with by means of expensive change requests.

With us, you can relax even if the scheduling is ambitious. We can steer you through rough seas, help with capacity bottlenecks, or manage your IT project from the proposal phase to end-of-life. We provide project managers, agile coaches and software developers. Or we can provide a complete team so the aforementioned problems don’t come up in the first place. In all of this we place great emphasis on quality, communication and transparency. And the software development itself? That is a skill we have plenty of.
