All About Userlane

A navigation system for software

In the beginning

Three friends were lost while driving in the mountains. Soon they realized that without a navigation system they would not be able to find their way home. That’s the moment in which the three future co-founders of Userlane understood the importance of guidance and imagined how great it would be to implement the same concept to software.

The idea of interactive guides was born and development began in a small Munich apartment.From the very beginning, the intention of the founders was to bring guidance within the chaotic world of user experience. And they wanted to achieve that with software that was nice to look at and easy to use.

Today we're different but quite the same

Since then, the company has grown a lot. The software is currently being implemented all over the world and we can now rely on a growing group of talented and charming people. Our offices are bigger and we have real desks, but we’re still true to our initial spirit: be genuine, listen to customers, and keep it beautifully simple.

Our Vision and Mission


We want to close the knowledge gap between human machines.
 We already enable every human being to immediately operate any software without any previous knowledge. Know-How of special software will no longer be something to be acquired but something publicly available to everyone.

Mission or how we get there

We’re building a navigation system for software. In cars, simple directions at the right time guide us safely to any destination. For software we do the same: We just show the end-user where to go next and help him reach the final destination.

Be Curious

Make it simple

In a continuously changing world, we cut through the noise and focus on the essence of things. Our goal is to reduce complexity and find solutions that make people's lives easier.
