Effective software from the Ilmenau garage to the whole world
plano was founded in 2006 by Robert Schüler from his garage at home. After studying business informatics, he worked as a consultant and project manager for workforce management systems at Interflex Datensysteme GmbH, optimizing the use of personnel resources in companies. He remains true to this goal to this day.
The two long-standing partners Interflex and plano have grown into a strong joint team. With its comprehensive portfolio of solutions, it has become one of the relevant providers in workforce management. As Managing Director of today’s plano solutions gmbh, Robert Schüler ensures that the plano WFM brand with its comprehensive and extremely powerful solutions continues to develop.
Today, plano WFM is used worldwide in companies with up to 250,000 employees.
