Damit werden Prozesse sowie Druckzeiten optimiert und wichtige Zeit- sowie Ressourcenersparnisse erzeugt. Schlüsselphasen des Arbeitsablaufs, die häufig manuell durchgeführt werden, wie z. B. die Auftragsverwaltung oder die Produktionsplanung, können automatisiert werden, um Zeit zu sparen und das Risiko menschlicher Fehler zu verringern.
Stocadro digitalisiert die Lagerhaltung in der Baubranche. Der Fokus liegt aktuell auf dem Gerüstbau. Gerüstbauer haben keinen Überblick über ihr Lagerbestände und Materialbewegungen.

Stocadro entwickelt ein neuartiges Verfahren, um diese Rücklieferung digital aufzunehmen und ermöglicht so den Einsatz von Lagerverwaltungssoftware (WMS) im Gerüstbau. Das Team besteht aus Dr. Johannes King (Business Development, Vertrieb) und Elliot Gorinas (Produkt, Tech).
