sourc-e GmbH was founded in 2016 by Lucas Scherer and Felix Severing. With the Print-Intelligence Platform (PIP), source-e offers an integrated software solution for the purchasing and processing of printing solutions more efficient. Sourc-e has thus proven that it is possible to be successful even in complicated markets with software solutions for individual needs. To do this, sourc-e uses an algorithm developed in-house, which allows different specifications, variants and machine data from print shops are taken into account to calculate a price for print production within seconds. This simplifies processes and makes them more efficient for both print shops and buyers - who want to purchase print services for businesses. The use and development of the PIP has shown that the current business area offers great potential for scaling up for other groups of goods and services.
