Ready for Digital Transformation
The speed of digitization is increasing in every business, so are the changes in customer requirements. ConSol is re-inventing itself and consistently improving the agility of its business processes to meet new demands. ConSol CM is also repositioning – as a platform for digitizing business processes. It effectively combines flexible process design with customer data management functions.
Specialized IT Service Provider
Whether it's agile testing, deep learning, big data, or Kubernetes – ConSol is an early adopter of new technologies, quickly making them available for customer projects. Since 2011 ConSol has been increasingly developing its open-source monitoring expertise for general use and is consolidating its partnerships. ConSol also concentrates on knowledge sharing in the fields of DevOps, test automation and managed services. ConSol's meetups, webcasts and events are becoming better known. ConSol is an advanced business partner of Red Hat, with the two companies cooperating to organize a number of technology events at the Allianz Arena in 2015.
Company Culture Raising the Bar
Flat hierarchies, employee shares, flexible working time, networking and equal opportunity are vital ingredients in the unique working ConSol environment. All employees are enabled to reach their full potential and contribute at the highest level. Collaboration among colleagues also serves as a cornerstone for innovation. Our staff policy has won multiple awards, among them "Germany's Best Employer": From 2006 to 2010 ConSol won the award for five times consecutively in the category of companies with 500 employees or less. Also, ConSol is regularly ranked among the top 10 "Best Workplaces in Europe".
Excellence: Innovation and Growth
Our slogan "Quality with competence" reflects the foundation of ConSol’s corporate philosophy. This philosophy has been rewarded with great success. In 1997, ConSol launched the CallManager* helpdesk solution, now known as ConSol CM. In the same year the software (programmed entirely in Java) was named "Solution of the Year" as part of the IBM competition. In 1998, ConSol established its first German branch office in Ratingen near Dusseldorf. Subsidiaries in Poland and the US were established in 2000 and 2001. ConSol’s growth has not gone unnoticed. Since 1998, the company has regularly appeared in rankings and lists of top companies such as "Europe's 500", "Bayern's Best 50" and "Deloitte Technology Fast 50". ConSol was also presented with the award for "Entrepreneur of the Year 2004" by Ernst and Young for its consistent innovation and sustainable growth.
From One-Man Company to Global Corporation
Dr. Ulrich Schwanengel founded ConSol in 1984 as a one-man company in Munich. His goal: Using advanced expertise to solve IT problems. His efforts met the needs of the time. Over the course of only a few years, he managed to gain major customers, including the Fraunhofer Society, IBM, Porsche, Munich Re and Siemens. At the same time, he expanded his team, including well-known Unix and network experts from the US. ConSol became a GmbH (limited liability company) in 1991. The company has been steadily growing on a global scale ever since.
