Orga Systems has its roots in a global supplier of smart-card solutions for mobile telecommunications, banks, retail, health care and the Internet. In the middle of the 1990s, two separate business units “chip card production“ and “system development“ were created. On 1 January 2003, the division of the two business units led to the spin-off of the system development department and Orga Systems GmbH was established.

Under a new private shareholder, Orga Systems took over and founded further subsidiaries. At the same time, there was a strategic focus on real-time based solutions for customer billing and administration in mobile telecommunication services.

In 1994 Orga Systems has launched the world’s first GSM prepaid billing system in Portugal.[citation needed] Over the years Orga Systems increased its solution portfolio. Based on the company’s real-time expertise gained in the telco environment, Orga Systems today is exploiting new markets in the field of sister industries such as Utilities[5] and Automotive.[6][citation needed]
