The IDEA data solutions GmbH, located in Duesseldorf Germany, was founded in 2001 as IDEA Nautic and Data Solutions GmbH by Sebastian and Klaus Allebrodt. Since then, we have been developing and distributing our yacht management software IDEA.NET primarily in the European and US market. To date, we have successfully completed more than 900 projects from 20m to 180m and have a market share of 60% in the segment of 50+m for yacht management software.

In 2008 IDEA was acquired by the SpecTec Group, which is one of the leading software companies in the commercial shipping industry, and was integrated into the group as SpecTec GmbH.

Ten years later, in 2018, SpecTec IDEA became independent again and returned to its roots as IDEA Data Solution GmbH.

Core values: Forward thinking, customer centred, hands-on mentality.

We kept the forward-thinking mentality of the IDEA Team, which has been utilised over our many years of experience within the yachting industry, in addition to a close working relationship with our customers, in order to achieve success.

Driven by these core values, we will continue to develop and improve our products to stay ahead of our competition and provide outstanding yacht management software to our clients.
