Neutral PIM consulting is one of our core services.

Based on your unique requirements, we put together your individual service package. In this way, you succeed in winning customers and prospective customers through the use of outstanding product data and in retaining them permanently.

Our neutral PIM consulting is often the starting point for a more comprehensive cooperation. Complementary areas such as IT architecture (EAM), data quality management (DQM), operational content management are the basis for excellent product experience management (PXM).

Agility is part of our DNA.

Our consultants and service owners receive training in agile project management during their education and training. They are usually certified product owners.

As a rule, the implementation of PIM, MDM and MAM systems is agile, so our team is well prepared for the dialog with IT specialists, system providers and implementers. Agility in the daily business of our own company helps to constantly train the acquired skills.

External support for your project and program management.

Complex digitization projects often extend over several years. Due to the broad scope and rapid change, changes occur constantly. Therefore, these projects must be divided into manageable expansion stages and releases. The use of agile procedures reduces the complexity and increases the plannability of the implementation steps. First successes become quickly visible, the benefits tangible.

We can take on different roles in the project or support in-house roles or build them up.

Product Owner, Product Manager, Scrum Master, Enterprise Architekt

We have mapped our experience from business, process and IT consulting with common process frameworks (e.g. Business Canvas, SAFe, Togaf, Scrum, OKR) into a holistic agile methodology. This supports all project phases.

We use the result types of known agile methods and apply them to the different stakeholders in the project. The goal is not a complete documentation, but to identify the necessary adjustments and to derive tasks specific to the target group.
