I have been a satisfied customer of consultant-base since 2011.
Not only can I recommend the software solutions, but also the service and rates. Changes are made reliably and applied as quickly as possible. In case of problems, the support team assists comprehensibly and directly.
In my company it wasn’t easy to find reliable programmers who understood me or my concept. I am therefore very satisfied with consultant-base and the individual adaptations they made for me; for example, the differential taxation or the connection to eBay.
We have been working successfully with consultant-base ltd. for eight years already. We value the results as well as their overall business conduct.
Their sophisticated software solutions provided access to online marketplaces. We are highly satisfied with the tasks and project results, which enabled us to successfully tap into new marketplaces.
We value the directors highly. They are remarkably competent and reliable.
Thanks to the fast, uncomplicated and always competent support by consultant-base ltd., many of our IT projects were successfully implemented. This included amongst others the integration of the ordering process from the two online marketplaces Amazon and eBay into our ERP system.
A longstanding experience on an equal footing with our service providers is paramount for a successful project realisation. Therefore, we are confident to work with consultant-base in future.
At consultant-base, we come to work every day because we’re passionate about
creating software solutions targeting the vulnerable spots in business processes.
Companies grow and so do their processes and software, but unfortunately not always in the right direction. This leads to complicated and lengthy processes in daily operations, unsatisfied employees and customers, and ultimately resulting in loss of sales.

consultant-base was founded by Andrea and Robert Lener, who shared a vision of creating a customer-centred software company.
Working together with a client’s IT team, we created a software connector for eBay to handle listing and sales. It was a big challenge and a huge success for our team.
Building upon our successful development of a software connector for eBay, and after receiving numerous requests from clients, we built a multichannel connector handling listings and sales on other platforms.
Driven by the idea of connecting and exchanging ideas with other brilliant IT companies, we moved our office to the to the Mountain View Innovation Centre.
Working closely with a client’s purchasing department, we optimised their procurement process and built a tailor-made dropshipping solution that could handle thousands of orders.
To ensure our clients are prepared for digital transformation, we provide expert support for the training and development of IT teams.
