Our mission

In the age of globalization, it is important for us to create a collaborative relationship in B2B and to promote the respective circumstances of all participants in the end-to-end supply chain. At Setlog, our core competency is to deliver configurated software that meets the customer’s needs. We are the only provider to combine supply chain management with corporate social responsibility, offering you a complete solution for your value chain. The personal contact and complete support of our customers is important to us and the basis for our daily work. With Setlog you have an experienced and innovative partner at your side.

Our management

Setlog was founded more than 20 years ago by Guido Brackelsberg, Ralf Duester and Jakob Gielen. Our founders recognized then how important the digitalization of supply chain management is and have driven it forward over the last 20 years with a deep expertise in logistics, trade and finance. Since 2001, Setlog is a secure partner in supply chain management and is now considered a reliable and innovative resource by many well-known companies.

Our management
  • Founded by Guido Brackelsberg, Ralf Duester and Jakob Gielen in Cologne. However, Setlog left the cathedral city very quickly and moved to the Ruhr area.

  • In order to respond even better to customer needs, Setlog’s IT department developed the new software cOSCA and went into “recurring revenue” with it. While the old software with PHP still ran web-based, cOSCA was now available as a server-client solution which has proven to be significantly more efficient .

  • After numerous business trips to the USA more and more exciting opportunities for Setlog emerged which were seized with the founding of the subsidiary in 2011. Setlog Corp, founded in New York City, has since served as a focal point for successful business relationships in the American market.

  • In 2013, the OSCA software also adopted a new approach. After cOSCA, the Java-based software jOSCA was launched – with a new look, better performance and more options to respond to customer requests.

  • OSCA habs been restructured. With the new segmentation of the software into OSCA CSR, OSCA SRM, OSCA Procurement, OSCA Logistics and OSCA QC, OSCA becomes even more flexible, easier to implement and offers new possibilities to be tailored exactly to the needs of the customers.

The Setlog Group

The Setlog Group is as diverse as the software solutions we offer.
In addition to Setlog GmbH, founded in 2001, we ventured into the USA in 2011 with our 100% subsidiary Setlog Corp. to conquer the supply chain market there. Learn more about the Setlog Corp. and get to know the people behind it.
