ARXUM GmbH, based in Kaiserslautern, emerged from an industry 4.0 system integrator and was co-founded in 2019 by Dr. Markus Jostock and Jens Harig, who both contributed their many years of experience in the areas of production IT and corporate IT. Today, the team consists of over 10 employees who expand ARXUM® with expertise in the automotive, logistics and medical sectors. This expertise is already underlined by various awards, such as Top 4 Blockchain Start-up in the automotive sector, Leader in Manufacturing Services & Solutions from ISG Provider Lens and one of the Best Blockchain Start-ups in the logistics sector.
The core competence of ARXUM® comprises the intelligent linking of industrial supply chain processes with the disruptive block chain technology. The block chain technology is now so well established that banks, insurance companies and the first state institutions are also using this technology. In the industrial sector, new applications are emerging on the one hand, but on the other hand, users can save time, costs and resources. Thus it is possible to link different IT systems "smart" with each other to realise a fully automatic cross-company data exchange, according to the rules of the respective data owner. No company data is stored in the block chain. The ARXUM® Suite used is independent of the user's IT infrastructure and the size of the company and is easy to integrate. The scalability enables the simple integration of additional partners and users and realises cost savings and efficiency increases on the part of the company.
ARXUM® is currently providing the block chain infrastructure in two research projects, one to reduce food waste and the other to build a platform for the exchange of energy data via smartmeter gateways.
