How it all began
The idea of establishing IngSoft GmbH sprang from a master thesis in 1997. Karsten Reese, founder and managing director of IngSoft, who studied electrical engineering in Erlangen then was committed to dedicate his professional career to energy conservation. Specialized degrees on energy management did not exist at that time.
As part of his internship at the Energy Agency of the State of Schleswig-Holstein, Karsten Reese had the opportunity to write a master thesis on the subject of "Energy controlling for small to medium-sized municipalities". The master thesis resulted in the software EasyWatt, which in turn led to the formation of IngSoft GmbH.
EasyWatt became better and better in close cooperation with the customers, while IngSoft developed (from 2000 "IngSoft InterWatt") a solution based on Internet technologies. While EasyWatt has been used exclusively in the municipal sector, since its launch in 2004, IngSoft InterWatt has been able to win over numerous customers from industry and commerce, as well as energy supply companies, thanks to its innovative features, ever-increasing automation and flexible application options.
What began in 1997 in a typical student flat share has now become a market-leading mid-sized software company. We justifiably claim to be a pioneer in energy management. In doing so, we again and again show a sure feeling for promising developments in energy management.
