Smart information solutions

Consultation, concepts, implementation

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.
