We are Picibird  from Berlin, Germany.

We design,  develop and market software using mobile, desktop and web technology.

 

Our two ways of business are: Creating customer-specific solutions from concept to production and do product lifetime maintenance if needed. Developing software products that fully embrace our style and ideology doing publishing and marketing in-house. One of those products is our Liberry App Platform (formerly Hybrid Bookshelf) that enables students to interact with their academic library services in fast and joyful ways. To make a long story short, we just love doing software. We combine methods of “human-computer interaction” with a range of sophisticated technologies to create delightful user experiences. With simple agile workflows, we make sure the needs of our customers and users are met even if they change long after project kickoff.
