Always a step ahead thanks to digitization

Sherlock allows you to organize your data, because it combines information from all digital sources in your company. That means you can always find exactly what you are looking for. Sherlock works independently of programs or servers and runs on all common end devices.

MANAGEMENT

Tomorrow’s knowledge

is based on Sherlock

With Sherlock, you can access all the data you need from all of your servers, clouds and other databases in real-time. It lets you improve day-to-day operations in your specialist departments and provide your employees with tools enabling them to avoid wasting time searching for answers locally and instead find solutions in a matter of seconds – without media disruptions.

Sherlock helps to reduce the accumulation of data silos in your company. It provides a view of all data generated in the company (naturally only released data), helping to create clarity across all departments and divisions, in real-time and regardless of where you are. That means you no longer have to count on unreliable interfaces, and misunderstandings are reduced to a minimum.

The increasing lack of specialists and the loss of corporate knowledge in connection with this is a longstanding problem that is hard to resolve. Sherlock helps you to document knowledge reliably in your company and make it accessible to anyone at any time.

Sherlock is the next logical step towards your digitization.

IT

Sherlock is the future

of digitization

As an IT officer, Sherlock not only supports you in your day-to-day business, but above all in managing your company’s future.

Sherlock is the first and only information management software for all documents and platforms so far that makes data visible for specific target groups – just the information they need, just when they need it. Sherlock is fast, safe and reliable, because it works independently of programs or servers and runs on all common end devices as an app – or within your own app. Sherlock helps you to manage transformation – without having to cope with stressful changes.

Finally, a clutter-free IT landscape with clear results.

what your product designers know …

Gain more time for your customers, secure revenue and retain your advantage ahead of the competition – with more knowledge that is available more quickly!

Let your customers know what is good for them.

SERVICE

Sherlock is the new dimension

in product and service communication.

As the person in charge of service and training, Sherlock helps you to gain detailed knowledge about your products, their properties and the best way to use them – anytime, anywhere.

Sherlock documents the life cycle of your product from its development to sales and after-sales service by collecting, allocating and intelligently linking all data.

This boosts the effectiveness of your product communication exponentially in a simple yet logical way. Make complex products easy to understand by not only preparing the information well, but also adapting it to individual challenges. At the same time, it means you can guarantee the transfer of knowledge in your company.

Service requires knowledge. Sherlock provides it.

exponential knowledge lead.

As the responsible project manager, Sherlock helps you to keep a comprehensive view of your company’s value chain at all times.

With Sherlock, you know everything about your products from start to finish. You no longer control your processes via isolated solutions with incalculable interfaces, but via a system-independent platform that holds all the knowledge you need – anytime, anywhere and in real-time.
