We enable companies with complex products, services and processes to simplify their B2C and B2B business.

The project dear to our hearts, with which the epilot story began, is the energy transition. We believe that on the way to more climate protection, a digital foundation is needed that simplifies the sale and technical implementation of renewable and energy-efficient solutions for customers and companies. This is the only way to make the energy transition scalable.

The need to reduce complexity exists in other industries as well. Thanks to the high flexibility of our software-as-a-service, epilot therefore supports all companies that want to simplify processes and make products and services a digital experience for their customers.

Our commitment

Under the title “we take climate action,” the organization “Leaders For Climate Action” has drawn up a catalog of measures that companies can use to reduce their carbon footprint.

As a tech company, we already meet many requirements – which is why we received our Climate Action badge. Important for us: Digital services run on green energy, as cloud servers achieve 5-6x higher energy efficiency than traditional on-premise services.

We take care at the corporate and individual level to minimize our carbon footprint through various measures in our daily business.

Our values

Customers first

Our epilot community is our lifeblood. Therefore, their needs and requirements are at the top of the priority list.

Honest and open

We attach great importance to an open corporate culture. Constructive criticism is what makes epilot and each of us learn and improve every day.

It's okay to make mistakes

When we fail, we own up to it and learn from our mistake. It's okay to lose a game as long as we win the championship.

We move fast

We don't waste time trying to develop the "perfect" solution. For us, standing still is tantamount to taking a step backwards, which is why we are continuously improving our solution.

We are a team

We have a common goal in mind and support each other along the way, because we win and we lose together.
