Case Study: GreenMeUp
Sonja Dümmen and her team have set themselves the task of greening apartments. Apartments whose residents would like to have plants around them but are still undecided about the best way to go about it.
This is how GreenMeUp, a very special online shop for plant lovers and those who want to become one, was born.

Thanks to an agile approach and the use of modern cloud and web technologies, we were able to implement the idea quickly. In addition, short development cycles enabled us to ensure that the platform was built as required by customers and suppliers. Inspired Consulting was responsible for the software’s architecture, implementation and operation.
After the preparation in the last few chapters we now start with the actual cluster creation. I think it’s best
