Our Company: FORMATION

You cannot use an old map to explore a new world.
– Albert Einstein

Why we do it

Frontline workers are often overlooked when it comes to digital innovation.
We aim to help them do a great job.

How we do it

We respect the workers‘ needs as well as the increasing digitization of workplaces to deliver digital tools that help frontline workers succeed in their jobs.

What we do

We build an Interactive Map as a digital productivity tool for frontline workers.

Our story

FORMATION started as an idea long before the company came into existence. Our founders started the first discussions around the concept of Interactive Maps for the workplace already in 2016. As the idea matured the team around Ian Hannigan started to grow and first discovery interviews were conducted with potential clients.

It was not before 2019 until the technologies and markets seemed ready for the idea. Only afterwards our founders decided to move ahead.

In 2020 FORMATION was formally established with its headquarters in Berlin, Germany.

Our team

We are proud to say that we have a very dedicated team that works hard to achieve their goals, but also does not forget to celebrate its victories.

As FORMATION did not take on investment during its early days, our founders but especially many of our first colleagues went more than just the extra mile to make the company into what it is today. This way we were able to shape FORMATION into the company we wanted to work for as a team.

Today we are a team of 10 experts working in Berlin.
