Focus on customer success

We value long-term customer relationships. Instead of promising the moon, we honestly say what makes sense and is feasible. We don’t create unnecessary dependencies. Our results speak for themselves and ensure that customers regularly seek our support even without long-term contracts.

With clear cost control and according to their individual schedule.

Technology with strategy

We are tech enthusiasts, but we view technology as a means to an end. Cloud services, AI, chatbots and digital process automation – all these digital tools only create value if they are embedded in a smart strategy and if they are aligned with the end customer’s needs.

It’s our expertise is to develop and optimize such strategies together and for our customers.

Our story

We want to get closer to our customers again. We want to see how our decisions bring about change.

This thought was at the beginning of Liongate.

Our founders Armin Oppitz, Michael Schießl and Frank Pensel had made a career as managers in national and international corporations.

Despite budgets in the millions and responsibility for hundreds of employees, they noticed that their dissatisfaction grew over the years. “We realized that we all have the entrepreneurial spark in us. We wanted to go our own way.”

At the hotel Drei Löwen in Munich, the idea of founding an IT consulting company was born. Thanks to the location, deciding for a name was easy: Liongate. Since 2003, the company has adjusted its course several times and today has found its sweet spot, which goes back to Liongate’s roots: We create customer proximity and show companies that good customer experience is not expensive. Neglecting it costs much more.
