Our mission.

Visualization of digital infrastructure with different symbols

Since our foundation in 2000, elio GmbH has developed into an expert for the digital transformation of companies. As an independent IT service provider, we promote the future-proof development of medium-sized companies and corporations with our concrete digital solutions, our services and our consulting. At elio, more than 150 colleagues at four locations (Gießen/Langggöns, Frankfurt, Heilbronn, Würzburg) contribute the experience and knowledge of more than 20 years in e-business to make your project a success.

Visualization of the digital transformation with different symbols

Our drive is to provide our customers with a stable and sustainable digital infrastructure as the basis for successful e-business in the long term. We give companies a competitive edge so that they can meet the current and future developments in e-business. Working with elio means growth - those who come to us can expect positive development. We do everything for that, that's why we NEVER give up. When we take on a project, we lead it to success.

Our approach is to understand the challenges and visions of our customers in detail. On this basis, we can create a technical infrastructure that enables our customers to subsequently work largely independently of us. We are convinced that the more independent and flexible we make our customers, the faster and healthier they can grow.

Furthermore, we understand our services not as work FOR our customers, but as work WITH our customers. We are IT specialists with a passion and we love to work hand in hand with our customers and their colleagues, who are equally passionate about the matter, to find the best possible solutions. This is exactly what we as an IT service provider demand of our projects - the project remains in the hands of our customers throughout and we work on it together. And even if our customers do not have their own development department, they can be sure that the project is in good hands on the technical side, so that they can concentrate fully on their core business.
