The COSMO CONSULT group, one of the leading international providers of Microsoft-based end-to-end business solutions for contract and process manufacturing, commerce, the construction industry and the services sector has been awarded the prestigious TOP CONSULTANT quality seal for the seventh time in a row and hence ranges among the best consulting company for medium-sized enterprises. For the Quality Seal awarded jointly by compamedia and the Scientific Society for Management and Consulting (WGMB: “Wissenschaftlichen Gesellschaft für Management und Beratung”), the candidates were examined based on scientific criteria in a complex rating procedure and particularly evaluated according to their customer satisfaction.
Enterprise solutions are not just software issues - it is also crucial to involve a reliable and future-proof implementation partner. However, the selection of the right partner is anything but simple: For Germany alone, the Federal Statistical Office has counted more than 90,000 service providers in the IT and communications sector. In order to establish reliable guidance for obtaining high-quality and tried-and-tested IT services in this hardly overseeable market, the TOP CONSULTANT quality seal was established in 2010. The certificate is awarded once a year exclusively to companies that stand out due to their excellent consultancy services. In order to prove this, applicants must undergo a comprehensive, scientifically sound test procedure where especially customer satisfaction is assessed.
With its nomination as TOP CONSULTANT, COSMO CONSULT receives the coveted quality seal for the seventh time in succession. „The market is booming. Therefore, almost everything is sold by almost everyone right now - unfortunately this also applies to dubious providers", says Prof. Dr. Dietmar Fink, Professor of Management Consulting and Development at Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences and scientific head of the examination. "The TOP CONSULTANT seal makes the quality of a consulting company visible at first glance and thus offers medium-sized enterprises a valuable orientation guide."
"Business software for humans“ is the central idea of COSMO CONSULT. With more than 950 experts at 40 international locations, the company offers a wide range of special solutions, business intelligence, CRM as well as office and portal systems in addition to ERP and industry solutions. COSMO CONSULT combines its solutions with a comprehensive service portfolio that has the objective to provide customers with both on-demand and future-oriented advice - not only regarding the selection, but also the introduction, support and further development of the software. "In addition to professional project management, the crucial factor for us is the human side, the cooperation with our customers which means a respectful and trusting partnership on the same level," explains CEO Uwe Bergmann.
COSMO CONSULT operates in an extremely dynamic market environment where the digital progress entails major changes - not only to individual jobs, but also to companies themselves and even entire industry sectors. According to Uwe Bergmann, the crucial factor is not just the technological side: "It's about the impact on our lives and our working lives. As is often the case with major changes, there are many uncertainties and definitely also developments in the wrong direction. It is important not to lose track and, at the same time, deal with uncertainty, doubts and even fears and take them seriously. This is exactly our job: Finding the right path into the digital age together with our customers - with a thorough understanding of the relevant situation, the company's employees and, of course, the actual business.”
The official presentation of the TOP CONSULTANT quality seal took place on 29th June in a festive setting at the 5th German SME Summit in Ludwigsburg. The mentor of the consultant comparison, the former Federal President Christian Wulff, congratulated the award winners personally and acknowledged their commitment and achievements that are setting the standard for an outstanding SME consulting.
