The company agorum® Software GmbH develops the open source document management system (DMS) agorum® core. Founded in Denkendorf in 1998, the company nowadays has its headquarter in Ostfildern close to Stuttgart's airport and trade fair & congress center. The development of agorum® core started in 2002. Six years later the chief executive officers Oliver Schulze and Rolf Lang decided to offer the DMS as open source software. Since that time agorum® core established itself as a highly flexible and easy to operate document management system in the market. The DMS is distributed by the developer itself as well as by over 50 sales and integration partners in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
