That’s all, folks: The great big inovoo review of 2016
Returning to work from our winter break, the inovoo team wishes you all the best for a happy, successful 2017.
But before we put the pedal to the metal and unleash all of our new ideas on the new year, we’d like to invite you to look back on the last twelve months with us. This post is all about our personal highlights of 2016.
We always start the year with a kick-off meeting, which is partly about illuminating the successes and learning experiences of the past year but which places far greater emphasis on the business year to come. In comfortable surroundings, our colleagues were given a glimpse of how 2016 would look for inovoo.
February: New development site opens
We moved into our new office space at our headquarters in Inning am Ammersee in December 2013. We initially had too many empty rooms: a bit of a problem, but a nice one to have! But by the time of our kick-off meeting in January, when all our colleagues gathered together in one room, it was clear that inovoo had grown enormously.
In February, we finally opened a new development site in Augsburg. Thanks to its proximity to the city’s university and technical college, we now also employ many student trainees and apprentices who constantly power us forward with their innovative spirit.
March: Certification, studies and publications
- “Document Direct” app receives “Trusted App” certificate
The “Document Direct” app which we developed together with Siemens-Betriebskrankenkasse (SBK) was awarded the “Trusted App” certificate by TÜViT (TÜV NORD GROUP) The certificate confirms that the iOS and Android app meets German federal data protection laws, making it absolutely reliable.
- Bitkom “Digital Office Index” (DOI) published
We are one of a number of partners supporting the digital association Bitkom in its production of the “Digital Office Index”, a representative survey of 1,108 businesses with 20 or more employees. The Digital Office Index covers themes including digitization within businesses, its progress forward and its effects. On a scale from 0 (not digitized at all) to 100 (fully digitized), the Digital Office Index is currently sitting at a value of 50. You can compare your business against the Bitkom Digital Office Index benchmarks at the linked site.

We shared a booth with BITMARCK at conhIT, the leading healthcare IT event in Europe. As we focused more than ever on the healthcare and insurance market in 2016, this event was a great platform for presenting our innovative products and solutions – such as our family portfolio maintenance app – to a broad audience.
May: National & international events
- 26th Pyramid company contact trade show:
With the tagline “Knowledge and experience” – The Way to Success, we were once again visible at the college show in Augsburg just as we were the previous year. Amid the so-called “war for talent”, this event is a great opportunity to make ourselves known to young and motivated students.
- EMC World Las Vegas:
From May 2-5 2016, the legendary Venetian Hotel opened its doors for our partner EMC2’s big event, EMC World 2016. We shared a booth with our American partner MetaSource, the largest reseller of the archiving and workflow solution ApplicationXtender in North America.
- MetaSource Partner Conference:
The MetaSource Partner Conference was held in parallel with EMC World. During the event, we held a competition to give away an original traditional Bavarian outfit. To enter the competition, all you had to do was pose for a photo next to our company mascot, NOVO Max, and post the photo to twitter with the hashtag #NOVOMax.
These are just a few of the photos we received:

Our annual Ammersee Communication Days were held on 06/09/16 and 06/10/16. This year, the venue was the BVS Bildungszentrum, in Holzhausen am Ammersee.
