What we stand for.

For over 25 years on behalf of digital change - for over 2,000 customers.

For over 25 years, intellivate has been helping to set up companies with smart IT software, analysis and consulting in such a way that data becomes business and the digital transformation bears fruit as quickly as possible. Product lifecycle management (PLM) and business process management (BPM) as a well-coordinated tandem offer outstanding digitalization effects that generate new, urgent added value for companies:  

Data and processes become an economic asset.  

With our expertise and our team spirit, we turn our own and customer ideas into practical solutions. In this way we enable the solid growth of intellivate and at the same time secure the future viability of our customers.

intellivate - discover things in common

As genuine Hamburg residents, we of course also stand for cosmopolitanism and reliability in the best Hanseatic sense: a word is a word and we keep more than a promise.

What sets us apart.

Innovative strength, international prices - but above all digital passion!

We have been implementing international IT projects with high innovation standards in Europe, the USA and Asia since 2003. Because IT know-how knows neither borders nor limits.

It goes without saying that we are proud of the achievements of our employees, who have received coveted awards for intellivate such as the “Best of” IT innovation award from Initiative Mittelstand and several places 1 and 2 in the “Process Solution Award” from Gesellschaft für Organization e. V. could win.

But what really sets us apart is something different: Without exception, all intellivate employees love and live the digital world.

Every day we experience how real values ​​are created from data, how bits become business, how companies get fit for the future through intelligent data acquisition, data evaluation and digital process optimization. To be able to actively accompany this partly disruptive, partly evolutionary process, as a software and consulting service provider, is a great honor and at the same time a great pleasure for us.

Our history.

It all started in a one-room apartment.

The nucleus of intellivate measured almost exactly 10m² and offered more space for ideas than for technology. At that time, Thomas Röhrig, software engineer, recognized the need for professional data management and founded "ergo EDV-Unternehmensberatung" in 1995 in a one-room apartment. A lot has happened since then ...

Social commitment and sponsoring

Support for the food banks, the “Power Kiste” and senior citizens.

intellivate is committed to social projects that support people in need. In Germany, several tons of edible food are destroyed every day - even though millions of people in Germany do not have enough food. We support the food banks that distribute food to the socially disadvantaged, especially children and senior citizens.

Many students in Germany start the day without breakfast. We support the “Power Kiste” children's project every month to enable all children to have a healthy breakfast. In addition, we do not give Christmas presents to customers and suppliers and instead donate to the elderly. These donations are urgently needed to enable senior citizens who receive too little pension a Christmas party.

But even when it comes to sport, we are not indifferent to the sidelines, but rather actively intervene in the action: As a member of the official support club for the ice hockey Bundesliga team of the Iserlohn Roosters!
