Launched as a two-man operation in 1990, LACOS is now a medium-sized company that designs innovative precision farming solutions for the agricultural sector as an established software producer. More than 40 employees at two company locations as well as numerous co-operations with international agricultural engineering manufacturers underline continuous and successful positioning in the market.
Our many years of experience in mobile cross-platform developments form the source of state-of-the-art and advanced software applications, especially in animal husbandry, precision farming and agricultural logistics. Future focal points of development are the optimised recording and processing of weather and geo-information as well as the analysis of a wide variety of telemetry data.
Applications from LACOS go through an integrated process, beginning with careful, application-oriented planning, followed by controlled development phases and concluding with comprehensive quality management. A creative and interdisciplinary team of highly qualified specialists and experienced practitioners always work to assure product success and optimise applied process structures. For targeted project realisation, detailed demand analyses offer the option of problem-specific resource allocation.
The philosophy of LACOS is customer satisfaction through innovation and sustainability. This guiding principle forms the basis for a trusting and successful co-operation between LACOS and its customers. Because the goal is joint success.
