When trust is felt, we dare to make courageous decisions. We live a culture of error tolerance and our cooperation is characterized by mutual trust: We know and believe in the abilities of each individual. Customers value us as a solution-oriented partner.
We are specialists, implementers and innovation drivers. Our drive is our passion for IT. Our customers and the entire team benefit from the agile exchange and share our knowledge. We are convinced of the excellent quality of our solutions and thus inspire customers and partners.
We approach things openly and honestly, even if it is uncomfortable. We always talk to each other in a respectful manner. Our communication is part of a continuous improvement process. We communicate on results and derive actions from them. Together we walk in one direction.

The digitalization of businesses is increasing the demands on the performance of IT & technology.

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.
