What Sherlock users talk about

„Sherlock allows us to link data silos in a very simple way. In one specific case, we enable our engineers to build (highly complex) custom 3D models based on a product portfolio during the quotation process.”  


Jürgen Abraham,
Digital Business Officer
(Handelsblatt 17.12.2019)

„With Sherlock, we are able for the first time to access all the data we need for our digital value propositions via a unified interface. This means that business models can now be realized that we had been elaborating for some time, but which were out of reach for us as a medium-sized business.  

Right now, for example, we are building an intelligent, very comprehensive model of our customer segments with Sherlock that will be the operating foundation for our future web services. We look forward to further projects with Fischer Information Technology AG“
