Our Mission

Improve communication and knowledge exchange in organizations

Software for the modern, digital workplace

NEOCOSMO started in July 2014 with the development of a platform for news communication: PIIPE Magazine. In the meantime, it has developed into a product suite for the digital workplace.

Meanwhile, we employ over 20 people at our locations in Saarbrücken (Science Park at Saarland University) and Karlsruhe (Technologiefabrik at KIT Campus). Berlin as new location is currently under development. We are also a member of the EdTech Collider in Lausanne.

With our solutions, we ensure that all employees within a company are up to date and have access to all important applications – whether via the PC in the office or via our employee apps while on the road or from production. To this end, we develop cloud-based software solutions, offer consulting services and integrate our solutions with complementary software products from partners.

The founders of NEOCOSMO, Frank Milius and Dr. Volker Zimmermann, can look back on many years of experience as software entrepreneurs. NEOCOSMO’s employees are digital natives and bring with them the knowledge of modern forms of communication. The company’s philosophy is based on sustainable, organic growth, product innovation, research intensity and close coordination of the development strategy with customers.

NEOCOSMO is the second company that the founders are building up together. Back in 1997, they started with imc AG in the field of digital learning and have built up this company, of which they are still shareholders, into one of the leading providers of learning management systems worldwide.

Our Philosophy

Our goal is to help organizations realize modern communication and training concepts. In doing so, we put the user at the center of our software design. It is primarily about a good user experience. It is also about developing solution approaches that break with time-honored concepts – of which we know that they do not work well.

Frank Milius, Founder and CEO NEOCOSMO

From our point of view, company magazines with integrated video portals and knowledge services will develop into the information hub in companies. They will assume tasks of employee information, communication, learning and productivity support.
