Our story

After the company’s foundation in 1990, it had to pre-finance the expensive hardware and network components, so they were in need of financial support.

At this time Germany's economy was in free fall and the state tried desperately to counter this with cheap credit. Andreas secured $40.000 credit from a state-run bank. His collateral? A couch, a toaster and a TV. But it worked, and soon the first customers required services.

  • 1990Foundation

    At the beginning CODie offered a number of different services and products. For example, we built customized computer hardware, and we planned and realized Unix and Novell networks.

    Another business field was the development of unique software systems (Microsoft DOS / dBase).
  • 1991First Insurance Broker Software

    In the winter of 1991 CODie was entrusted with the development of a business and management application for insurance brokers. The system allowed to manage insurance segments, sub-agencies and customer contracts. A further requirement was commission calculation based on customizable algorithms.

    The resulting software "SmartProvis" was to become the predecessor of our current insurance broker management system "CODieBOARD# finance-center".
  • 1992CRM Software

    We developed the "SmartProject" system to provide a solution for bookkeeping, materials and inventory management.

    A number of other systems were created on commission: CRM software for a doctor's practice, payslip calculation for construction companies, a management system for the federal water industry and software for dairy farming companies.
  • 1995First Maritime Software

    In 1995 we were selected by one of Germany's biggest ship managers to create a system for the technical supervision of vessels. The maintenance control system was able to calculate and manage planned maintenance as required by the ISM Code.

    This software became the precursor of CODie ISMAN and later the maritime-management-center.
  • 1996Investment Planning System

    The supermarket chain "SPAR" commissioned CODie to develop investment planning software to calculate and control new franchise projects. The software was in use until SPAR Germany was acquired by another supermarket chain in 2004 (EDEKA).
  • 1999-2006Expansion of Maritime Software

    Our planned maintenance software for vessels was renamed "CODie ISMAN". The software had been extended with a number of optional modules such as purchasing, compliance management (ISM/ISPS) and stock keeping. Today over 300 vessels use our system, and it has also been used at the German Antarctica Station.
  • 2007Gen 2.0 Insurance Broker System

    After five years of intensive development our current management system for insurance brokers was released. It is scalable, and is used for commission calculation, plus contract, customer, and document management. It is used by big players like Verivox and a number of famous brokers. The development continues.
  • 2010Ship New-building Software

    CODie created the "CODieBOARD# supervision-center" to ease the management of yard teams and to improve the efficiency of shipbuilding constructions. The software is used for claim, damage, warranty and malfunction management and can be operated during sea trials.
  • 2013The maritime-management-center

    The development of the "maritime-management-center" starts! A comprehensive system to manage the complete ship management company. It allows technical fleet management, crewing (including payroll calculation), reporting and full compliance plus analytics. All other maritime systems will be incorporated.
  • 2014Crew Management

    At the SMM exhibition in Hamburg, the world’s biggest maritime trade fair, CODie revealed its new maritime-management-center system. The crewing function, which also includes resource planning and payroll was released first.
  • 2015Insurance Broker System for Startups

    We created an "easy to use" version of CODieBOARD# finance-center, adapted to the needs of startups and one-person enterprises. This software is cloud-based and is provided in return for a monthly fee. In addition, the skin and all screens have been reworked and further optimized.
  • 2016maritime-management-center goes V1.0

    Our maritime-management-center is published first time in version 1.0 at the maritime "SMM trade fair" in Hamburg! Version 1.0 contains crew management, document management (compliance) and fleet reporting. The developments continue.
