In the beginning... this is how most stories start. For Carano, it was software development in 1992 that created the foundation for today's company. The focus of our work used to be on individual development of software products for large customers such as Bayer Schering.
A few years later, in 1995, our focus shifted to the automotive branch, with projects for customers such as Deutsche Bahn or the Bundeswehr. Since then, a lot of things have changed, not only from a technical point of view. Cars themselves have evolved greatly, and with that development our customers' demands towards our products and our company changed as well. But vehicles remain at the core of our actions.
By the mid-2000s, a trend became clear: our customers increasingly opted on standardized solutions. The re-branding to Carano Software Solutions in combination with a contentual realignment were the logical consequence for us.
Currently, interconnectivity, networking and communications play an ever greater role in our daily business. As early as in the year 2000, Carano was dedicated to topics such as "the mobile workspace" and "Black Berry". The product "Elegate" was created, which then lead to the founding of the spin-off Elegate GmbH. Since then we have been developing apps and mobile solutions in addition to our fleet solutions.
In 2010, Carano released its first SaaS solution. The intelligent business application supports our customers' business processes with great efficiency and flexibility, underscoring Carano's role as a technological leader regarding IT in the fleet industry.
Ecology and innovation do not oppose each other in the Carano mindset, as our engagement within the "Shared E-Fleet" research project shows. Since 2013, Carano has headed the consortium and accompanies the way forward towards alternative drives and electromobile business car sharing.
The Carano team is looking very forward to all the opportunities and technical solutions that these future innovations will bring.
