What DeDeNet stands for today...

With more than 25 years of experience, almost 40 employees and the corresponding expertise, DeDeNet GmbH is now one of the established digitalisation partners for companies of all sizes in a wide range of industries. DeDeNet customers and their business processes are always at the centre of all activities - from the submission of offers to project planning and implementation through to after-sales support.

In the spirit of a partnership of equals, this includes in particular analysing individual requirements in order to reduce unnecessary costs and resources in operational processes such as sales, service and logistics thanks to a sustainably successful IT solution.

However, DeDeNet's high service standards are not only reflected in the development of solutions:
All team members have their roots in the service sector, which results in a fair and cooperative approach both internally and externally and a very high level of customer and employee satisfaction. The DeDeNet philosophy is thus characterised internally and externally by community and trust among each other as well as the commitment and expertise of the individual employees. This is also reflected in our personnel policy commitment to work-life balance.

As a medium-sized company, DeDeNet can also react very flexibly to customer requirements. In addition to the commitment and expertise of all employees, the flat hierarchies of the owner-managed company also contribute to the rapid realisation of customer requests and, as a result, the prompt development of new functionalities - for joint growth at eye level.


How it all began...

From the first website to the mobile IT solution for optimising company processes - the history of DeDeNet GmbH has been characterised by progress through digitalisation from the very beginning. When the company was founded in 1996 as DeDeNet Internet- und Multimedia-Entwicklungen GmbH, Gernot Dähne and Lutz Döring recognised the spirit of the times:

As managing director of Ettlingen-based Dähne Verlag, business graduate Gernot Dähne recognised the need to bring companies and their products and services online in order to remain fit for the future, both technologically and entrepreneurially. Together with his partner Lutz Döring, who was based in Echte in Lower Saxony and had already successfully marketed his own merchandise management software, a solid basis was created for the founding of the web agency. After just three years, the number of employees at the company, which specialised in programming web design in HTML, Java and Flash as well as e-commerce and content management systems for SMEs, had risen from four to ten - and more than 100 corporate customers were already being served throughout Germany.

With the increasing shift to a paperless, mobile office, the development of appropriate software solutions was not a question for DeDeNet, but a logical consequence of the times. Now established as an IT software and service partner in numerous companies throughout Germany, the focus was now on process-optimising, digital and mobile applications. The founders' many years of in-depth industry knowledge also ensured that the name DeDeNet was soon no longer unknown, especially in the FMCG (Fast Moving Consumer Goods) environment.
