1988: knk Business Software AG was founded in 1988 by Knut Nicholas Krause. His objective was to combine organizational consulting, software-development, technical IT-consulting, training, support and Information-broking to a full service for small and medium-sized companies. Only by this combination, did he consider it possible to create solutions for small and medium-sized companies with a high return on investment, while getting rid of low productivity due to double entries, a high amount of manual work and poor information flows within companies.

1996: knk decided to focus on one industry: the publishing business.
