(Berlin, 21.06.2018) With 37 degrees Celsius on June, 21st 2000 Berlin came to experience the hottest start into a summer ever recorded. Daniel Strobl and Philipp Krey made had just made friends at the Technische Universität Berlin where they both were enrolled in computer sciences. They started their first project together programming a prepaid-system to be used in Germany´s first hostel whilst listening to their favourite Depeche Mode songs. Therefore they founded a company called DaPhi. Many weather extremes and IT-projects later DaPhi celebrates its 18th birthday this month.
(Berlin, 07.02.2018) If you happen to hear nothing at all at the moment, you are just at the right place. This news-article is all about silence. As we are heading for another ITB Berlin, the world´s biggest travel trade show, we want to talk about this aspect of travelling, which is elemental for our mental relaxation. Silence is a wonderfully unspectacular thing. It leaves space for our wandering thoughts, dreams and after all: concentration. So in this respect this year we thought of something special for our visitors: a silent disco at the top of our exhibition stand.
(Berlin, 06.12.2017) Every year anew Santa Claus performs a small logistical miracle as he gives his Christmas presents to every child in all the different countries at the same time. DaPhi suspects that this is all about good team work. Santa Claus as a plural? Why not - it is the same with DaPhi. When we will finally have equipped two new MEININGER Hotels in all IT matter on the 22nd of December, one just around the corner at Berlin´s East Side Gallery, the other in Milan, Italy, it will be our staff´s achievement. They fill our name with life, here and abroad.
(Berlin, 09.08.2017) At DaPhi we had spent quite a while thinking on how we could engage ourselves socially. At the best it would be something not having to do with computers as we sometimes like to glance beside our monitors. In the end the question answered itself as the women´s team of nearby sports club TuS Hellersdorf asked us to help out. That instantly felt right - to support teenagers in their sport. To take care of the external conditions. That sounded like a meaningful challenge to our IT system house. And now we are again able to announce new sports shirts with our logo, the orange duck footprint. This time they are hanging in the lockers of the 2nd men´s soccer team of TuS Sachsenhausen, as well as in the ones belonging to the newly founded so called farmteam of ice hockey team Eisbären Juniors.
(Berlin, 24.07.2017) In the year 2011 the german government set up a program to establish Germany as the leading market in electro mobility. The goal is to have one million electric cars driving german roads by the year 2020. But in the midst of last year only 10.481 e-cars were licensed, according to an investigation by newspaper Welt. That is merely 0,4 percent of the total amount of 3,5 million first registrations of cars in Germany. That does not exactly sound like a sure-fire success. Being an IT system house we are part of an innovative branch and set to push change a bit further. Although there goes no financial advantage with it, we got interested in the technology and the experience we could gather. Today we want to share this. In October we added a Renault Kangoo Z.E. to our fleet of vehicles. Ever since we drove a 3000 kilometres all over Berlin. First result: our system administrators love to use it, it quickly became our most popular car.
