You are in: Company / History

Our history

Our company was established in 1999 based on the development of customised software and consulting activities. The most important milestone of our present concept is the development and implementation of our two products "audimex" and "explAudit".

The audit software "audimex" which is known as audimexEE today was launched in 2003 and has since then successfully established itself as a solution for global companies and large enterprises.

The predecessor of audimexSD "explAudit" was launched in 2008, with which we could finally offer an optimal solution to small and medium-sized audit departments for saving their internal audit.

Both products were re-launched in 2012 with innovative features and options: audimexEE offers a wide range of new features to large audit departments at the international level as well. In addition to a sophisticated system, numerous innovative added values and a new design, the new audimexSD is available for small and medium-sized audit departments and makes the day-to-day working processes easy. 


audimexEE was extended by a module for operative risk management. That forms another milestone within the progress of becoming an integrated governance system. Moreover, the company's partner network was extended by Spain, the Netherlands and Belgium. In addition to German and English, audimexSD was launched in French as well in 2014. 


whistleblow gmbh, affiliated company of audimex ag, was founded. whistleblow gmbh is provider of the whistleblowing platform "" which allows anonymous reporting of cases of suspicion. With the product's concept, the company follows a unique approach within whistleblowing systems. 


Since October 2012, stb ag has traded under its new name audimex ag. Changes are also reflected in the company's products: audimex was re-launched and is known as Enterprise Edition "audimexEE". Even explAudit is getting a new fitting and is now nationally and internationally sold as "audimexSD" - Software designed for small audit departments.


Within 2011, stb ag has won various international customers. That formed an important milestone for the company's international direction.
