Impulse-Magazin at Upjers – Talking about Germany’s Digital Businesses


How is Germany faring when it come to the digitalization efforts of middle-sized businesses? That question has been discussed in politics and business circles around the country.

Depending on the person, party or business, the answer would certainly be roughly the same – the devil is the details. To find out about these details, German business magazine “Impulse” is touring Germany from North to South, interviewing the heads of medium-sized companies.

On Thursday the Impulse team came to Bamberg, setting up their cameras and asking upjers’ heads Klaus and Marika Schmitt on their experiences with digital businesses in non-metropolitan Germany.

As a purely digital online company, we are all about “agility”: The competition in the digital market space is tough, so the key to successfully doing business is remaining agile.

First off, being agile is not limited on processes within the business processes themselves. Much has to do with the way a company treats their most important assets: their employees.

At upjers flexibility is key. Core working hours are from 11am to 1pm, giving employees the opportunity to decide whether to be an early bird or start late and take care of their day-to-day matters in the morning.

Similarly one other strength is the ability to negotiate monthly working time. Here as well, upjers lets people decide if they want to work maximum hours or work reduced hours. Being a digital business also means that several internal processes are digital as well.

“Agility” is required to adapt to an ever-changing digital market. As a middle-sized business, upjers is able to react very quickly to changing market forces, requirements and demand. This, paired with the very socially minded working environment, has made upjers a solid player in the German and international gaming industry.

More from the interview once the article has published in Juni. A video covering the interview will also be made available by Impulse-Magazin in the coming weeks.
