Mission & Milestones


Better information leads to better decisions

The idea was born in the first boom years of the Internet: the procurement of highly relevant, valid information as a basis for consulting and management decisions.

The Internet can improve the quality of global information procurement for management, and save time and costs. Since its founding in 1999, Consline AG has provided leading companies with relevant, accurate, and complete data and analysis so that customer opinions are better understood, better products are developed, quality costs are reduced, and undesirable developments are prevented. To structure the information from social media, user generated content, media and press and also combine it with internal data, the Consline Intelligence Management System (CIMS) provides users with intuitive access to data from single statements to customer-specific reporting and consulting recommendations.

Understand your customers better than ever before

The CIMS® combines the capabilities of Business Intelligence (BI), Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA), Social Media Monitoring (SMM) and Virtual Data Rooms (VDR) within a cloud-based SaaS solution.

With its unique range of services, Consline has been able to win leading corporations and market leaders as customers. Through convincing quality, high utility value, and permanent further development, Consline AG can now point to years of cooperation with many customers.
