In 1993, Thomas Muhr released the first commercial version under the company name “Scientific Software Development,” now ATLAS.ti GmbH.
Mr. Muhr led the company for close to 20 years, seeing it grow continuously and garner an increasing share of the growing QDA software market.
Today, the program is sold and used around the world, with major organizations and corporate players among its enthusiastic users. The likes of Microsoft, the United Nations, the World Bank, Google, Boeing, and nearly every major university in the world rely on ATLAS.ti for their qualitative data analysis needs.
In 1999 Thomas Muhr brought the management consultant Jörg Hecker into the company. He took care of all business-relevant and strategic issues of the company, first as a consultant, later as COO.
In 2021, Jörg Hecker took over the management of ATLAS.ti as sole CEO.
Thomas Muhr continues to advise the company from then on as founder and shareholder with heart and soul.
In the years since our founding, we have remained true to our principles of innovation and uncompromising commitment to quality. Our developers work in close interaction with practitioners, designers, researchers and consultants worldwide. We have spent a lot of time trying to balance clean graphic, ease of use with highly complex functionality to achieve a very intuitive yet comprehensive analysis software.
To ensure that we continue to serve our users in the best possible way, we have continuously grown our team over the years and continue to develop cutting-edge technology for the benefit of our users. Today, hundreds of employees around the globe are working to provide ATLAS.ti users with a great product and outstanding service. The company, sales force, employees, dealer network, and user base are growing rapidly and steadily. And the rapidly growing number of users and the tremendous positive feedback we receive every day are indicators for us that we are on the right track.
