IDEA was created in 2001 by Klaus and Sebastian Allebrodt. Today, the software is in use on more than 500 motor and sailing yachts of up to 147m length. IDEA is installed as a standard by many of the most prestigious yacht builders in the world. In 2008 IDEA has been acquired by the SpecTec Group, the well-known creator and vendor of AMOS software suite. With installations on more than 8000 ships AMOS has been the market leading software in the commercial shipping industry for years. SpecTec has a total of 27 offices in 20 countries and a total number of 240 full-time employees. While AMOS will continue to be developed along the requirements of customers in the shipping, oil, gas and defense industries, IDEA is the main product for the yachting market.
