Value proposition

✋🏾 Avoid tech monopolies: Learn to use and improve open source solutions that are suitable for small organizations without a dedicated IT function.
🧩 Collaborate to reach scale: Use open digital platforms to reach joint independent volumes and weight on proprietary, often monopolistic global platforms.
🛞 Stop reinventing the wheel: Use open-source, transparent automation for repeating tasks, particularly to make your inventory books machine-readable on global platforms without error. Blogpost.


🖇️ Link open data: Connect small catalogues, small documentation, and small inventory books into large, interlinked, collective ones to become competitive with big data and large data monopolies.

📈 Use algorithms that work for you, not against you: Use trustworthy data and AI to protect yourself against big data and algorithms that work against you.

Small Prints Case Study

Case study: How to make connected web resources from simple, scanned documents, such as historic price lists.
