Smart information solutions

Consulting, services and solutions for better informed users

Developing products, software and services generates information that is relevant for users. This information exists in different systems, and in many cases only in the heads of the developers.

We research the information, prepare it, and provide it to users so it provides optimum support for their work.

Whether technical documentation (such as operating manuals and service information), e-learning, comprehensive information portals, or other types of user information, we provide advice, develop IT landscapes, train employees, generate content and translate it – all in the context of specific services or individual business process outsourcing.

Honoured as "Top Consultant"!

We've been honoured, within the medium-sized businesses category, in the TOP CONSULTANT competition.

Since 2010, the independent Wissenschaftliche Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung (WGMB) (Scientific Society for Management and Consulting) of Bonn, Germany has researched all consulting firms participating in the "TOP CONSULTANT" competition, on behalf of compamedia.
The respective reference customers from the participating companies provide feedback, within the framework of a scientifically-based procedure:
How professionally did the consultants perform? How satisfactory was their consulting services? What was the impact of the cooperation? According to the WGMB, the decisive factor for an award is "a customer-oriented, SME-oriented consulting service".

"This award underlines the consulting competence of kothes," said Lars Kothes, Managing Director of kothes GmbH. "However, we will not rest on our laurels, and we'll take a close look at the feedback from the individual customer evaluations and continually develop our consulting and associated services.".

Since no official award ceremony could take place for the occasion, the laudatory speech was sent to us via video.
