About cape IT

cape IT was founded in Chemnitz in 2006 by four IT specialists/software developers with a SHARED passion for IT service and open-source technology. As a spin-off from an international IT systems supplier, cape IT has dedicated itself to service management and has become a specialist in combining the benefits of enterprise IT with the practical challenges facing SMEs.

The company has grown from day one – and continues to do so to this day. CiCS was published in 2008, and this then became KIX4OTRS, the largest community module for ((OTRS)) Community Edition in 2014. This ultimately led to the development of KIX – our own, independent product which was launched at CeBIT in 2015 and received rave reviews. The company originally had two offices at Chemnitz Technology Center, but has now become a flourishing business located at the Schönherr-Fabrik business complex, with another office in Dresden.

One thing will never change: Our passion for IT service and open-source technology.
