Founder Story: It all started as a software solution for personal use
When we couldn’t find a suitable ERP system for our microcontroller business (embedded project GmbH), My wife and I decided to take matters into our own hands. I programmed our own enterprise resource planning solution based on open source technologies. It was important to me that I could easily expand the system if needed, that’s why I chose open source. That is still the basis of xentral to this day.
The software was initially intended for personal use only. But as our customers started asking about it, I started adapting the version according to their needs and soon enough, the demand for the software outgrew the demand for the hardware. In 2017, Claudia and I decided to shut down our hardware business to focus on the ERP software. Today, xentral is a multimillion-dollar company backed by Sequoia Capital, Tiger Global and Meritech Capital.
