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.

This is what we stand for

Our mission

We are developing a software solution for the construction industry that is simple, intuitive and visual. It contains all the functions you need to actively manage your construction processes - and yet is easy to use without the need for lengthy familiarisation. We know the construction industry and are aware of the challenges that arise in day-to-day work. Finding an answer to this - and implementing it using state-of-the-art technology - is what we want. To develop a solution that makes planning fun and maximises efficiency. That is our most important incentive, every day.

For you

However, a strong product is only one thing - a product without the right service is only half as useful. To ensure that our solution offers you real added value, we attach great importance to the combination of effective online processes and personal support: we ensure fast, direct and efficient processing and at the same time conduct webinars and our support in person to always find a personalised answer to your questions.

Our values

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

Courage

We dare to try new things and accept every challenge.

Fun

We enjoy what we do.
