Millions of users every day. 160 solutions in 29 countries on four continents. 585 specialists shaping the digitalisation of the automotive trade. This is Porsche Informatik.
We combine decades of expertise in IT and the car trade with a holistic vision for the digital transformation that our industry is currently undergoing.
Our agility is based on a modular system landscape and a learning organisation. This allows us to guarantee continuity, while also facilitating the transformational and disruptive business developments of our customers.
Our open-source strategy for tailor-made applications creates a clear competitive advantage for the car dealerships, importers and financial service providers who depend on our systems around the world.
We see ourselves as a trendsetter and an innovation driver: We build on proven state-of-the-art technologies, such as Java, TypeScript and Cloud, as well as on such development and operating methods as Co-Creation and DevOps. Furthermore, however, we also engage intensively in such issues as Artificial Intelligence, Big Data, Virtual Reality and Voice Interface.
Our solutions are always centred on our customers: We design our solutions and processes to meet their requirements. Regardless of the channel they use to search for vehicles or services – we ensure that our systems offer them a seamless experience.
Porsche Informatik is a subsidiary of Porsche Holding Salzburg, the largest and most successful car trading company in Europe. We have been under the umbrella of the Volkswagen-Konzerns since March 2011.
Our business strategy proves successful! In 2019, we opened our new subsidiary “POI France”. From our site in Paris-Roissy we manage support and rollout of our dealer management system CROSS for the French market.
Additionally, we are in the founding phase of a new development facility in Vienna. Our cutting-edge campus will house 150 employees working with highly innovative technologies on extraordinary projects.
Commitment: “I honour all agreements that I enter into. If anything changes, I actively inform the other party as soon as possible.”
Responsibility: “I act to the best of my knowledge and make decisions in the interests of our company and our customers. I actively decide whether other people need to be involved.”
Appreciation: “We communicate with each other on an equal footing. I treat others and their opinions with respect.”
Exploit opportunities: “I strive for constant innovation – even on a small scale – and use my creative freedom in an entrepreneurial way. We see mistakes as an opportunity to learn from them.”
Competence: “For us, competence is the combination of automotive business expertise, methodological know-how and IT skills. Continuous independent learning is a matter of course for me.”
Porsche Holding has worked to achieve its outstanding reputation during the 60 years of its existence in over 20 European countries, in China and in South America. Social responsibility and a high standard of ethics have made Porsche Holding what it is today: the most successful automotive distributor in Europe.
As a company with operations around the globe, to Porsche Holding compliance means that its employees not only abide by current law but also adhere to a set of moral principles that go beyond merely observing the law. These principles have been set down in the company’s own Code of Conduct. Naturally they apply to all levels of the Group and to all countries where Porsche Holding operates.
To be able to improve processes, you have to understand them. Proximity to the automotive business is embedded in our identity. Our customer solutions rely on IT know-how and depth of expertise. Our staff have technological foresight, know the business processes and can accordingly advise our clients.
We always focus on the needs of our customers and their commercial success. When it comes to long-term orientation, we therefore think in terms of products rather than projects. Our solutions are subject to continuous improvement and further development. Our work here is strongly geared towards open source and innovation.
We also work on large projects in small developer teams. The flat hierarchies allow our teams to operate highly autonomously. This ensures flexibility and a high level of independence and simultaneously more responsibility and self- organisation.
