Company - CoPlanner

As a future-oriented software house for corporate controlling, CoPlanner develops controlling software for medium-sized companies with a focus on all processes in which data must not only be displayed, but also enriched. This includes planning, consolidation and reporting, but also specific use cases up to cost and performance accounting. The open platform allows the integration of AI algorithms, so that our solutions create a new benchmark for modern business management. In close cooperation with our customers, CoPlanner pursues one goal: Management and departments should always have an eye on the company's development in order to be able to plan and control with foresight.


Speed and flexibility are very important for us in the successful cooperation with our customers.

Founder Dr. Walter Frühwirt

CoPlanner was brought into the world in 1989 by Dr. Walter Frühwirt - to create sound controlling solutions for companies with appropriate IT support.

Walter Frühwirt studied business administration at the Karl-Franzens University in Graz and also successfully completed his doctoral studies while working as a university assistant at the Institute for Corporate Management between 1979 and 1982. He then moved into business, where he was, among other things, Chief Financial Officer of an Anglo-French commodities group.

As managing director of CoPlanner GmbH, Walter Frühwirt has developed the company with family management and sustainable growth into a major player in the CPM market in D-A-CH - with satisfied customers in all industries who value our software as well as the support provided by our qualified team.

As the main shareholder, our founder Dr. Walter Frühwirt is still involved in key strategic decisions and supports the team as an expert advisor and entrepreneurial coach.

Great developments in companies never come from one person. They are the product of a team.
