How to get started with cavok

cavok installation


You can run cavok in three different ways: as a local installation at your company, with hosting by a data centre you have commissioned or with hosting by PEAK-14 or one of our integrators.

We don’t use external cloud services for our hosting, because we want to offer you the maximum level of security and guarantee data protection. We only host on our servers using our own data carriers in Germany.

cavok set-up


Setting up cavok is easy. The system is ready to use straight after installation. You can adopt your current data structure on your file server and work with your data without having to make any further changes.

You can be more efficient by setting up automatic workflows and by connecting your other systems, e.g. web shop, CRM, ERP, PIM, CMS. We help you to realise these kinds of projects.

cavok training


Installing and setting up cavok forms the basis for better efficiency. However, the system only reaches its full potential if it’s used by employees in their day-to-day work.

To achieve this, we, or partners selected by us, offer training sessions. This explains the system in detail and includes demonstrations that use practical examples.

After training, our support team is of course also available for you.

cavok maintenance & updates

Maintenance & updates

cavok’s maintenance contract is an annual fixed fee that includes all updates and upgrades. We don’t differentiate between free maintenance updates and fee-based updates with functional expansions.

You are also given an annual service quota, which can be used for support services as well as organisational advice and training.
