Managing for the future

For over 30 years, we have been supporting public offices in going digital – from the digitization of paper files to transparency in budget planning to modern HR processes.


More efficiency, more speed, more quality

Our standard is to think digital – while always keeping our sights on the people. We leverage our expertise and proprietary software to make our clients fit for the future. More than 100,000 users in public offices, community and church administrations, education and research institutes, as well as non-profit organizations, put their trust in our solutions today. By doing so, they benefit from our all-round approach. When software, consultancy and operations come from a single source, it is MACH AG.
Founded in 1985
Consistently visionary

In the same year that Microsoft launched Windows 1.0, Jan Müller-Ontjes founded the company MACH in an old barn at the Baltic Sea. He saw the public sector’s need for administrative and financial software. Ever since then, we have continually developed further and evolved as a growing company with many ideas.

Creating an intelligent ecosystem for the future of eGovernment

Because digitalization is an ongoing process, we have decided to actively foster its development. The MACH Innovation Hub researches within the field of new technology for public administration.

We have in the Joint Innovation Lab a high-performance ecosystem of public administration, academics and business . The platform brings public administrations, science and economy closer together and promotes powerful digital innovations for the public sector. This platform cultivates the development of effective digital innovations for the public sector.

The Joint Innovation Lab also conducts research on technology together with the University of Lübeck and other partners.

To contribute to global leading developments within digitalization and continually remain at the forefront of change, we participate in The Northern Germany Innovation Office in San Francisco

Joint projects with the German Academy for International Cooperation (GIZ): As a service provider in the field of international cooperation for sustainable development and international education work, GIZ is dedicated to shaping a future worth living, around the world. The main commissioning party of GIZ is the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ).
