We deliver web applications and services that manage, present
and analyse business data, with a focus on geographic data and business development.
This includes concept, design, prototyping, implementation, content creation and data collection. We are convinced that these are not separate concerns, but should be addressed in an integrated way.
We work in many different domains, but have a a focus on these two:
We help our customers to analyse their geographic data and present it in a comprehensible manner. Too often valuable spatial data remains stuck somewhere in a database or is presented using a generic geographic information system (GIS). This usually does not result in user friendly and responsive applications. We counter this by carefully looking at the target audience and creating light and focused solutions.
Providing information in a clear visual language is of great importance to business development. We work together with our clients on defining the strategy that serves as a starting point for the design and development of user friendly web applications. Once an application has been launched we provide continuous improvement services to take advantage of the business' new insights and results.
Another important aspect of our work involves integration of processes and organizations. This often results in a raised awareness of participants for cooperation and new business opportunities.

showing chemical parks in Europe, and tracking investments in, and news on the chemical industry in Europe.
Besides the publicly visible features it provides multiple administrative features like a map editor
and other advanced content management tools.

web analytics, search engine optimization, maintenance, support
Industrial Parks in the Northern Netherlands
we created this application that makes data on industrial parks in the Northern Netherlands
accesible in a very user friendly manner. Although this project is a bit dated by now, it
still demonstrates how we think about making complex (geographic) data understable.
What we did: user research, design, prototyping, data modelling, implementation, data collection
Commercial Real Estate Amsterdam Area

Darueber was founded early 2013 by Cees Verhagen, Corné Verbruggen and David Offereins. After having worked together intensively on multiple projects during the preceding years, they decided to join forces.
Cees' working career started in the early eighties in the optimization of processes for the chemical industry. After some years he started working as a researcher in hospital epidemiology. His carreer evolved into agrochemistry on topics like pesticide degradation, biochemical pathways, bacterial genetics and biocomputing. In the mid-nineties he started working as a literature and patent researcher for the molecular sciences at the Wageningen University and Research center. In the year 2000 he switched to a regional development company (NOM) and started working as an information manager. In this context he designs and edits Bid Books for Foreign Direct Investment puposes. He manages NOM Internet, Intranet and Extranet, Organizes business information, and is researching the regional business climate. He also advices on Chemistry, ICT and High-Tech systems.
With a BSc degree in Artificial Intelligence and a MSc degree in Human Media Interaction Corné works at the intersection of information technology and cognitive sciences. This combination of expertise is key to how he approaches projects: the primary concern is to create applications that work well for the intended user. At the same time, proper knowledge of modern database and web technologies provides a good sense of what is possible. The interplay between these two domains results in user friendly, technically solid and modern solutions. In 2008 Corné won the Gerrit van der Veer award for his work on a new holistic interaction paradigm for business software at SAP AG.
David is a graphic designer with a MSc degree in Economic Geography. As the role of a designer is to structure, filter and visualize content in a meaningful way, his expertise in the field of (spatial) economics is of great value in Darueber projects. The first years of his career David was information manager at a regional development agency (NOM). While studying Graphic Design at the Royal Academy in The Hague he worked for communication firm De Wijde Blik, where he developed branding for urban development projects. He also worked for design agency Vesper Interactive, where he did interactive and print work for clients such as Post NL and Prince Claus Fund. Since 2012 David is a freelance designer, and works mostly on projects that combine his interests as designer/geographer. Current examples are the Spoorzone area in Tilburg (urban development) and MadebyU (housing) in Utrecht.
