Our story

Desk-Net was founded in 2011 by Matthias Kretschmer. He saw the struggle companies of all sizes had finding a tool that could adapt to the publishing process's ever-growing complexity.

Since launching Desk-Net, we have focused on the needs of more complex content teams, including fast-paced newsrooms and large-scale editorial departments. Thanks to our proprietary software, we grew quickly and created a strong foundation in Germany and Western Europe. Nearly all digital and print newspaper content in Switzerland is planned with Desk-Net.

In our early days, we focused our efforts on the news industry. Over time, we expanded our tool and operations to accommodate communications teams and large organizations to meet their publishing demands. As these teams began to publish across various channels, Excel, Google Spreadsheets, and other generic task management tools failed to keep up. Today, approximately 40% of our customers work in communications.

What sets Desk-Net apart

We believe that a diverse company can lead to greater productivity. That's why we're proud that our team, though small, is full of energetic and unique people that come from Germany, Vietnam, Nigeria, Mexico, Poland, Ukraine, and more.

With our cultural diversity and ten years of experience, Desk-Net enables customers worldwide to plan their content from anywhere, at any time. 

In the interest of building the best software and the most thriving and inclusive company, we're committed to a diverse and robust team of curious, talented people who want to do the best work and support each other in the process.  

In the future, we plan to roll out even more features and integrations to ensure the best possible user experience. Desk-Net is evolving into a workflow management tool to coordinate workflows across multiple systems, such as headless CMS or Digital Asset Management tools. Desk-Net will significantly enhance its workflow capabilities in 2021 and 2022.
