ABOUT US – HISTORY AND MANAGEMENT
Appollo Systems GmbH offers comprehensive consulting in the areas of process analysis and optimization, digitialization and industry 4.0. Our innovative core product is the cloud-based Appollo Low Code Platform developed by us for this purpose. A collaborative digitalization platform for business, IT and end users. It offers an efficient digitalization of internal and cross-company processes with seamless interconnection of humans, machines and internet of things. The range of possible applications covers all business sectors, the public sector and healthcare.
Appollo Systems GmbH was founded in November 2015 by Dr. Eckhard Herdt together with his son Mario Herdt. Dr. Herdt has more than 30 years of experience in the IT sector. His core competencies include strategic consulting, process, quality and test management as well as project management for the implementation of digitalization projects in business sectors such as banking, insurance, energy, transport and logistics.
The experience gained from these projects was decisive for Dr. Herdt in the development of a new digitalization platform. The aim is to provide better support for customers and companies in digitalization through forward-looking technologies and methods and also to achieve higher quality, lower costs and faster time-to-market. Technologies such as low-code, real-time collaboration, microservices, agile development and artificial intelligence are key.
Mario Herdt was already involved in product development during his studies in information systems technology. Especially due to his knowledge and master thesis in the field of Machine Learning and Recommender Systems, Mario Herdt makes a significant contribution to outstanding product features.

MEDICINE AND HEMINGWAY – UNIVERSITY OF HAVANA
It is understandable that Dr. Herdt, the then 20-year-old rock musician who was just beginning to study computer science, did not believe that he would eventually study medicine again and then, as Hemingway wrote books on Cuba, develop software on an island. 15 years later, Dr. Herdt studied medicine, then worked for one and a half years at the University Hospital in Giessen as a neurosurgeon and, after a surgical internship in Cuba, founded an aid organization to support Cuban clinics.
When Dr. Herdt was asked by the then director of the university clinic in Pinar del Río, Cuba, whether he would like to support the university as a lecturer in computer science for one semester, Dr. Herdt immediately agreed. This developed into an intensive and friendly cooperation with the University of Havana. Thus, the Appollo Low Code Platform at the University of Havana is not only used for research and teaching, we also always receive important innovative impulses from the professors and lecturers of this university for the development of a top product for digitalization.
COMPANY HEAD OFFICE – BÜRGSTADT
It doesn’t always have to be Frankfurt, Berlin or Munich to find an attractive company head office. There is room for inspiration, creativity or the unusual, especially where one breaks with the familiar office environment and creates space beyond the usual conventions.
This is exactly what Bürgstadt in the far north of Bavaria offers us with very good connections to the metropolitan region of Frankfurt/Rhine/Main.
We would like to invite you to a training or workshop and to get to know our contemplative Bürgstadt. After a busy day, enjoy the excellent regional cuisine and a world-class white wine or red wine.
You will come again. Definitely!
