Our story

We are a Basel start-up and develop our software as a service here. At the very beginning, we received a request from a timber construction company that wanted to convert its magnetic board into software. Since then, we have continuously developed our tool in close cooperation with our pilot customers. Vanillaplan has been on the market as a B2B solution in the German-speaking region since January 2019, in 2020 we hired our first employees and in 2021 we were already able to complete our integration platform Vanillaplan Fair. We are constantly expanding our product range with the latest IT technologies.

Through our products, we create a better working life for people.

This is what we stand for

Our mission
We develop a software solution for the construction industry that is simple, intuitive and visual. It contains all the functions needed to be a supportive tool in hectic everyday life - and yet is easy to use without lengthy training. We know the construction industry and know what challenges arise in daily work. Finding an answer to them - and implementing it using the latest technology - that's what we want. To develop a solution that makes planning fun. That is our most important incentive, every day.

For You
However, a strong product is only one thing - because a product without the right service is only half as useful. To ensure that our product offers you real added value, we attach great importance to personal contact. We always conduct webinars, onboardings and our support in person - and never miss the opportunity to email or call you to make sure everything is going to your satisfaction.

Our values
Curiosity

We are and remain curious every day about ourselves, other people, technologies, the world.

Courage

We dare to try new things and are not afraid of mistakes, because we learn new things from them.

Fun

We enjoy what we do.

Authenticity

We are sincere and respectful to ourselves, to you and to the environment.
