IGEL wants operations for its clients to really gel. IGEL Technology provides Linux and Windows-based thin clients that connect to a company's main server, primarily for health care, automotive, institutional, and public sector customers in the market for server-based computing. Software packages accompanying the thin clients are developed in-house and customized for each client. Products are designed by IGEL but manufactured by third parties. The company was founded in 1988 and has been a wholly-owned subsidiary of C. Melchers GmbH & Co. since 2001.
