Johannes Koppenhöfer and Dr. Jörg Leute are fascinated by how new technologies can help people do their jobs. They found itdesign GmbH and, thanks to some good ideas, soon become development partners of CAS Software AG. This partnership still exists today.

In 2000, more than 7,500 companies present at CeBIT. Among them: itdesign. We present the itd client pro, our first product for CAS genesisWorld.

Who better to introduce a CRM than those who develop modules for it? itdesign steps into consulting for CAS genesisWorld. We are close to the customer and gain important experience: What does software have to look like so that people enjoy working with it?

2003 a customer asks if itdesign can also implement project portfolio management systems. Yes, we can! itdesign becomes a partner for the US software Clarity, which today belongs to Broadcom. Since then PPM is part of our DNA.

In 2005, we became Gold Partner of CAS Software AG - and have been ever since. Long partnerships are the basis of our success.

We not only implement PPM software, but also contribute to it ourselves. Since 2010 itdesign is a technology partner of Clarity PPM and develops addons and individual customizations. Each addon solves a specific problem at our customers.

„Make plans that work!“ In 2012, we launch our first own cloud-based software solution Meisterplan, taking the step from consultant and service provider to software manufacturer.

In 2016, we move to our modern new company headquarters in the heart of Tübingen. At the same time, our first international location is opened in Toronto: Meisterplan takes its first steps in the North American market.

In 2017 and 2018, Christoph Adamczyk and Dr. Christoph Hirnle join the management board.

itdesign goes global! 2018 Meisterplan USA Inc. is founded with offices in Houston and Seattle. Our cloud software Meisterplan is now used as a leading Lean PPM tool worldwide.

In 2019 and 2020, we continue to grow and open sites in Zwickau and Mainz. Today, around 180 employees work at six locations worldwide.
