timeNET GmbH becomes APLIGO GmbH

The renaming to APLIGO shall support the company´s strategy to extend its position as an European Appliance Provider. "We see a continuously growing demand of European software vendors to enter the Appliance business. It is our target to allow software vendors all over the world a step by step and therewith riskless entry into the Appliance business. The new name, as well as our slogan "your software perfectly applied", shall express this in a much better way and superiorly copes with this claim", says Marc Emminger, Managing Director of APLIGO.

APLIGO GmbH, full-service appliance distributor, targets independent software vendors (ISVs) and offers a complete range of products from barebone appliances to soft bundling options down to the level of providing fully customer-tailored appliances in a BTO (build-to-order) scheme.  The related logistical services range from warehousing and inventory-management, over technical support, repair and refurbishing to full stock- and RMA-management.  The company, which was founded as timeNET in 1999 and is located in Karlsruhe/Germany, has its focus in providing ISVs a fast, risk free and painless entry to the creation, design and the physical delivery of appliances to their channel. Among others, APLIGO is working for Utimaco, SmoothWall, azeti, Phion, Packet Alarm, Astaro and Sophos. Further information about APLIGO and its services is available from
