LACOS – Precision in software

Quality through experience

LACOS started out as a two-man operation in 1990 and is now a medium-sized company that designs innovative precision farming solutions for the agricultural sector as an established software producer. More than 60 employees at three company locations as well as numerous cooperations with internationally operating agricultural machinery manufacturers underline this continuous and successful positioning in the market.

Above all, the many years of experience in the area of mobile cross-platform developments form the origin of ultra-modern and advanced software applications, particularly for the areas of precision farming, telematics, field planning and robotics & automation.

Quality through expertise

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.

Quality through customer proximity

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.
