Ideas for high-performance software
Not every software specialist is automatically a successful software developer. In the real world, the software a user requires to support him in his work must offer a lot more than just clever programming codes. It all depends on the big picture - concept, design, functionality and hardware.
Our definition of perfect software is quite simple: first it needs to be created to accurately and reliably control the tasks at hand. Secondly, it should be simple and effective in its use. To achieve these goals, we have focussed intensely upon human/machine interfaces. Not only in our own developments, but also in the various research projects we have carried out.
The knowledge that we have garnered from such insights has been directed into all of our own products. The feedback we have received from our customers show us that we have already achieved a very high standard in many areas. Nevertheless, whether graphical user interfaces, the latest surface design or optimal software ergonomics, we are striving to push the envelope in terms of learning and developing in all of areas of our work.

Ideas for perfect Handling
The form follows the function - we at ELK consistently follow this principle for practical design. But we are also convinced that functionality and aesthetics do not have to be mutually exclusive.
Take, for example, the design of our workplace analyzer BAPPUevo: We built its housing exactly around the technology - and at the same time designed it so that it fits perfectly in the hand. The result is beautiful to look at and just as easy to use.
From the idea to the finished product
Since our inception, we have attached great importance to supplying our customers with everything from a single source. Therefore, in addition to product development, manufacturing plays a major role here at ELK. Our manufacturing not only includes prototypes, which ELK develops under its own initiative and launches into the market, but also large-scale production orders for clients.
Whether it is control systems for ovens, baking chambers, air conditioning, refrigeration systems or dishwashers, single or bulk orders - as a customer of ELK, you will benefit in several ways: firstly from our professional project planning and production, and secondly from our production ideas, which can be very unconventional indeed, depending upon the requirements.
However, our aim is always the same: you should never compromise on the quality of the production and design in order to achieve cost-efficient manufacturing practices.
