Driving force of digitalisation

"Knowledge-based solutions, AI or data analytics have not only been a topic for us since the advancing digitalisation, but have determined our everyday business for years."

Mission statement

The satisfaction of our customers is our top priority. Our customers are the main focus of our activities. We take on and achieve our customers' targets working closely together with them.

We are, have always been, and remain independent and objective. We are committed only to our customers. We are independent consultants and intend to remain so. This is the best way to ensure progress for our customers and ourselves.

We work reliably and openly. We think in the long term. Honesty always pays off. We work dependably and communicate openly. Our relationships with our customers continue far beyond the duration of the initial projects. We know this and act accordingly. We are long-term, reliable partners for our customers.

We identify ourselves with our products and services – high quality is our main incentive. We are good at what we do. This is what drives us.

We stay in front! We constantly develop and improve our products. We challenge and support our employees. This is strenuous. But it works!

#TeamSCHUMANN

Our way of working together is what makes us special. We interact with each other in a friendly, uncomplicated and appreciative manner and maintain an open, cooperative management style with flat hierarchies. It is thereby irrelevant where in the world someone lives and works: our teams are digitally networked and work transparently.

Excellent developers, creative minds and astute analysts make sure that our products are always getting better and that we never stand still as a company.

Each of us is different. This enriches us and makes us what we are: a growing, diverse company.

Careers and training
Allgemein 3

For 25 years, our software products and consulting services have been enabling our clients around the world to digitally transform their credit risk management.

Our customers and us: one team

Our experts lead our customers through all the phases of a project – from the idea to the implementation of our standard software.

After the introduction of the software, staying close is still a great value: a Project Leader takes care of the implemented solution and ensures its functionality and further development in the interests of the customer.

We make sure that there is an active exchange of specialist knowledge between our customers. They are therefore able to influence the further development of the standard software actively. We also see ourselves as a driving force for the entire theme of credit management. Every year, with our SCHUMANN Conference we create an international platform and enable the exchange of ideas and information between specialists and managers across industries and between countries.

Innovative technologies

Our solutions are constantly developed further. Our location near to the University of Göttingen and the close connection with Prof. Dr. Matthias Schumann (Professor for Application Systems and E-business at the University of Göttingen) provide a constant transfer of know-how from science into business practice. This enables us to integrate current developments directly into our work and to create solutions that are always "state of the art".

Our developments and implementations follow the principle: as much standard software as possible and as much individuality as necessary. We avoid unnecessary costs through the availability of a broad spectrum of configurable standard products. Our solutions integrate a large number of global and local information providers and enable excellent integration into peripheral systems.

Technologies

Internationality

Most of our customers are active worldwide, many of them with their company headquarters outside Germany. German, English and Russian are available as standard languages in our software solutions.

Our employees are just as international as our customers: our head office is in Göttingen but we also have a subsidiary in London as well as offices in Leipzig and Porto.

Enabling success.

We see ourselves as a constantly learning, open-minded company and invest continuously in research and development - often with our partners at Göttingen University.

Our aim is always to be one step ahead of the market with our highly developed technologies.
