Innovate like a startup. Scale like an enterprise.

At Aperto, strategists, designers and technology experts work in collaborative teams with the client. This enables us to become faster, make better decisions and deliver higher quality results at an early stage. In this way, we offer our clients the ideal environment for innovation projects.

However, digital transformation is much more than just stringing together new ideas and products. Our aim is to develop digital business models, platforms and services that are both scalable and sustainably successful. To achieve this, we superimpose the business case, technology and interface to create a relevant digital user experience. Together with IBM we have a unique range of services with which we have firmly established ourselves in the market as a Digital Reinvention™ partner.

What’s important to us

People first

People are the drivers of digital transformation.

The success of our work is measured by how well we recognize human needs and translate them into relevant products, services and experiences.

To this end, our work is consistently user-centered and we qualify our results with data and tests.

Lean & Agile

We believe in consistent and equal collaboration.

Our clients are our partners! This is why we work together with them in interdisciplinary teams and use agile and lean methods for rapid test results.

Only together can we develop real and marketable digital innovations.

Restless Reinvention

Innovate, fail, learn, start over: Innovation takes courage.

An open mindset, responsibility and a positive culture of continuous improvement are the foundation of good teamwork.

Only in this way can we find the best ideas and retain the best talent.
