Our Corporate Values

We are convinced that GroupLotse adds value to people by empowering the collective intelligence of people to dominate artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things. Our vision inspires us and drives us to achieve extraordinary things.

We live and appreciate diversity, which enriches our team. We encourage different perspectives, lateral thinkers and new impulses, break up old structures and break new ground. We use the diversity of our team, our customers and service providers to grow as a team and to continuously improve our products and services.

We stand for open, respectful and friendly interaction with one another.  We listen to each other, value the opinions of team colleagues, customers and service providers and reflect what is said. We believe in creating something valuable in an environment where everyone can trust that the others will give their best. We develop and maintain relationships of trust so that we can discuss openly and question each other.

We encourage each other’s creativity in order to create something new and to improve what already exists. Together we create an inspiring environment in which all employees, customers and service providers feel comfortable and we can bring out the best in ourselves. We are open to disruptive ideas and question ourselves again and again in order to create innovative products that offer our customers exceptional added value.

We strive for efficiency through prioritised work and focused thinking. We promote flexibility and resilience of each individual. After all, everyone is an important part of the team and contributes to the success of the company through their performance together with everyone else.

We want to work together efficiently and successfully without neglecting the essentials in life. We support each other in order to constantly develop our skills. Family, friends and health are important to us. Flexible working time accounts, flexitime, part-time and home office solutions help us to create sustainable healthy working conditions.

Our Motivation

In the beginning there was the idea of making messages from AI or IoT applications available to groups. After all, why should only messages from people be shared with others and not those from AI/IoT applications? Collaboration platforms such as Slack and MS Team, messenger solutions (Telegram) and bot technologies offered us the appropriate platform to turn our idea into a product.

However, we soon learned that while the pure notification of groups is a very useful feature, the real added value lies in what the group does with messages from AI/IoT applications. This is because AI/IoT applications can describe complex conditions, but often cannot (yet) derive any decisions from them. This requires at least one person for more complex contexts, and with increasing complexity even several people – i.e. groups.

We are therefore convinced that we need to make use of the collective intelligence of groups in order to process messages from AI/IoT applications in a timely manner, to bring about the optimal decision and to initiate appropriate follow-up processes. Triggering IoT/AI applications via groups/channels of collaboration platforms was then only the last logical step in our product development.
