The Business Model

OTRS structures the internal and external communication of companies, making it efficient and audit-proof. This increases service quality in the long-term.

The business foundation of the company lies in the further development and continuous optimization of the OTRS professional solution which has been available since January 2015. Positive demand as well as the need for support during implementation and ongoing operation are the basis for revenue generation.

In addition to consulting and services, defined contract levels contain a large number of exclusive, customizable functionalities. They are characterized by low operation costs and minimal implementation effort.

As the owner of the source code, OTRS Group offers its software to worldwide users free-of-charge under the name ((OTRS)) Community Edition. Positive user experiences and confidence in the Group’s professional competence usually lead to the professional version of OTRS. Due to automatic contract renewals, we have established a solid recurring revenue stream.

OTRS Group’s total revenue is therefore generated primarily from the revenue generated by the professionally deployed OTRS software.

The scalability of OTRS Group’s business model generates high profitability through continuous revenue. This and the simultaneously low cancellation rate offer a high degree of planning security with regard to future revenue. The cornerstone of our customer relations is the comprehensive support provided to customers during their entire contract period as well as the confidence that they derive from the efficiency of the OTRS Group as a service partner and trusted advisor.

The main areas of application for the software are Customer Service, ITSM and Corporate Security. The service package includes evaluation, conceptual design and process consulting. After software implementation, customers have access to a professional helpdesk and a wide range of training courses.

For more than 15 years, OTRS has stood for customer care, innovation and a high degree of quality in technology and service.

In addition to German, OTRS Group is represented worldwide by six subsidiaries. With the founding of our subsidiaries, we meet global demand and an international need for professional IT service management. We offer consulting and services based on German quality standards in combination with intercultural competence and adapted to individual local conditions.
