Deep knowledge, vast experience and a tangible passion for our fields of expertise provide a platform for four extras:
- bottom-up, completion-oriented thinking coming from the result which enables
- advice that is doable as a starting point for real-end-to-end value delivery,
- solutions that are customised, rather than standardised,
- and brave, creative solutions when playing by the book won’t produce the desired success.
Able. Agile. And humane. It’s all rooted in our philosophy.
It took courage to start-up our first business more than two decades ago. In recognising and seizing new business opportunities, thinking outside of the box and doing things differently, we continue to be brave.
What is more uncommon is our courage to share responsibility and ownership of our enterprises.
A deep love of everything technical unites us. And a passion for making, doing and creating things. We like to try things out and just see what happens. That’s usually how innovations come about.
Our free-spirited, interdisciplinary approaches help us think things through originally and produce surprising and beneficial results.
For us, performance is a mix of customer focus, competence, experience, professionalism and walking the extra mile. We define our worth for clients through the value we add to their companies and products.
So, we are all-hands-on-board and relentless in our pursuit of success.
We can go fast alone in specialised units. We’re even stronger together as a group. Collaboration is deeply engrained in our DNA. In our view, interdisciplinary cooperation increases the chances of innovation and extraordinary solutions.
We enjoy working closely with our clients - and regard ourselves as partners rather than suppliers.
As a people-centred enterprise, we attach great importance to human values. Empathy is one of them.
If we want to be like a partner to clients, we need to be capable of understanding and appreciating each other’s situations and feelings.
We are down-to-earth and unpretentious people lucky enough to be doing what we love most.
There is no reason at all to be anything else other than our true selves.
What’s the (hi)story?
umlaut is a new brand. But we are not a new company.
We used to be part of P3. On a more than two-decade-long journey we grew from a handful of people into our thousands, spanned our wings from Germany across all territories and industries and enjoyed great success and growth together.
But to realise our full potential, we needed a change.
With umlaut, we have changed the quality of our own professional home. And found a special mark worthy of our mutual entrepreneurial and cultural vision for the future of a company of the many.
And a company of more: more togetherness, more collaboration, more inventiveness, more entrepreneurialism, more freedom, more shared ownership and more success.
