Industrie Informatik

Your strong partner for digitalization

Since 1991 we have been supporting manufacturing companies in optimizing their manufacturing processes. As a strong partner for digitalization, we create the basis for efficient production and a successful future for our clients with cronetwork, our manufacturing execution system developed in-house, and with our consulting services.

Thanks to the continuous further development of our release-safe standard software, our customers remain permanently up-to-date in terms of MES functionality, usability and technology, and can flexibly meet the individual challenges in the dynamic Industry 4.0 (the smart factory) environment.

We support the individual strengths of our clients.

Partnership-based consulting as well as competent and long-term customer service are our strengths — of course with worldwide on-site service.
This benefits medium-sized manufacturing companies as well as global corporations in a wide variety of industries in the field of discrete manufacturing.

We deliver what others only promise.

With 30 years of experience and implementation strength in international projects, we can ensure 100% project success. Our consultants are specially trained for the requirements of successful MES projects in the sense of the smart factory. You benefit from our know-how in the conception and implementation phases as well as in optimization and support during ongoing operation.

Our release policy is unique on the market.

We make 100% releasable standard software available to our customers and guarantee that every customer-specific adaptation is preserved, traceable and documented in subsequent updates. In addition, you benefit annually — and without additional costs — from further developments and adaptations for other users from different industries. This automatically guarantees you technological and functional progress as well as genuine protection of your investment.

Industrie Informatik Team

The people behind cronetwork MES

It's the mix that does it.

Industrie Informatik relies on the technical and human competence of its long-standing employees; a quarter of our team has been involved in the company’s successful history for more than 10 years. On the other hand, we continuously invest in the training of young talent.
At our six locations and offices, 130 employees work every day to ensure efficient production for our clients. From software development to product management to consulting, sales & marketing, all departments at Industrie Informatik work hand in hand.
Worldwide on-site service is a matter of course, throughout Europe and from Mexico to Indonesia, from Brazil to Russia.
