Since 1990, LACOS Computerservice GmbH has become a leading software provider in the German as well as the international agricultural engineering industry. We implement and produce GPS-based solutions such as automatic controls, industry-specific navigation systems and automatic GPS steering systems for combine harvesters and forage harvesters, etc. In addition, we develop and distribute PC-based and web-based logistics solutions for agricultural contractors who control and optimise the harvesting and transport of agricultural goods.
