Centracon – smart working

Trusted Advisor for Germany’s Leading Companies: Centracon AG.

Centracon was founded in 1990 with the vision of connected working. From these beginnings, the standard of Smart Working was born. People connect with one another and share their competences for the boundless exchange of knowledge – irrespective of time, place or medium. Smart Working is the answer to today’s challenge in which globalization, a shortage of skilled workers, and the new generation of digital natives are demanding increasingly flexible, agile ways of working.

Germany’s leading companies rely on Centracon as a trusted advisor and architect to plan and design their workplaces of the future.

Our services cover IT business and technology consultancy in the strategic development, realization and optimization of virtual, mobile and social IT workplaces.
With added value for your business and people in mind, based on established process models, integrated, economical, and secure solutions for modern cooperation and collaboration are created.

Smart Working gives you a competitive edge. 

Working in a smart atmosphere: Our headquarters in traditional Eicherhof Castle in Leichlingen.

Centracon Spirit

The Spirit of the Centracon

or: how do we tick?

  • About our cooperation: At eye level, reliable and respectful - this is how our cooperation can be described. This applies both within Centracon and with customers and partners from our network.
  • About our team: We are careful when selecting new team colleagues. Of course, skills are also an important point for us. Ultimately, however, the decisive factors are whether an applicant ticks as well as we do, whether he or she has a passion for "our topics" and whether we believe that he or she fits well into the team and the team well with him or her.
  • About our startup mentality: We are always open, even for unusual ideas and paths. We encourage self-determined teamwork and creativity. We make quick decisions and implement new innovative ideas agilely. Everyone contributes in their own way, assumes responsibility and continues to write the Centracon story - just as they have for more than 25 years.
  • Our motto: "Smart Working" is our philosophy, which we live in a team, with partners and customers and also implement for customers.
  • About our know-how: We focus on sustainability - in everything we do. The sharing of knowledge and experience within the Centracon team is an elementary point in our cooperation. Both are reflected in the Centracon Solution Framework (CSF) developed by us - and this to the benefit of our customers and for each of us.
  • About tropical helmets: No two projects are the same. And we like that. We are passionate about our clients' expeditions into digital transformation. Our experience from previous expeditions, all our knowledge and our packed equipment help us in every situation. We are curious, courageous and experienced. That's why we can go the ways that are seemingly impassable and get the customer to their destination. Just like expedition leaders.
  • About our standing: We are not the vicarious agents, but partners of our customers and also communicate critical observations. That's why we often sit at the same table as our customers as a trusted contact partner.
