ifu Hamburg brings two decades of experience in developing professional environmental software. Our proven expertise lies in services for corporate sustainability.
In addition to our proven standard software solutions, we offer individual solutions tailored to our clients' needs.
Our software has to be perfectly suited to your company. That's why we involve our clients from an early stage of the development process – so you can decide which software solution is right for you.
We cover the entire software lifecycle:
Client involvement is especially important to us. Delivery on schedule and user-friendly software is the foundation of what we do.
Thanks to our years of experience and our team's individual expertise, we offer a wide range of flexible and traditional software development methods.
Our software development method of choice is Scrum - an agile process with many benefits to you...
- The client is involved in the development process at every step, thanks to development cycles with short feedback loops (two to four weeks). At the end of each development cycle, you receive functional software to test.
- This gives you the opportunity to test the software for functionality and compliance and to review your ideas. The product evolves constantly until we reach the perfect solution together.
- It's perfectly normal in the course of any process that the specifications change as the product develops. We involve you fully and develop flexibly – because your satisfaction is our goal!
We provide individual software solutions, not generic products. We customize your software specifically to your needs.
On request, we adapt our standard products to your requirements through customization or with extensions. Check out the detailed descriptions of our products: Umberto, Umberto for Carbon Footprint, Sabento and e!Sankey.
We also integrate or merge our software with other IT systems and interfaces, such as SAP. Our projects include development of individual websites, client servers and web applications.
Our satisfied customers come from the industrial sector, research institutions and government agencies. Please review our references.
What works for us works for our clients – and that's teamwork.
The values we apply to our work are based on the Agile Manifesto:
"We are uncovering better ways of developing software by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:
- Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
- Working software over comprehensive documentation
- Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
- Responding to change over following a plan
That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more."
We offer a wide range of skills:
We bring 20 years of experience in professional software solutions focused on environmental management and corporate sustainability. This includes IT systems for modeling material and energy flow systems, for Life Cycle Assessment and process optimization, and for resource efficiency calculation.
We've planned and implemented many applications and projects in sectors such as waste management, transport, energy, water and nature conservation.
In the area of research and development, we have taken part in the success of numerous projects funded by organizations such as the European Commission, Germany's Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology (BMWi) and Germany's Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF).
With decades of experience as a software service provider, our technical skills are second to none.
To guarantee the highest levels of quality and efficiency, we are always up to date with technology, methods and designs. This means we can help you choose the most appropriate solution from a rich pool of both proven and new mechanisms.
We maintain the highest standards through continuous training and knowledge management, e.g., attending developer conferences, participating in lectures, and following scientific journals.

Our developments are largely based on Microsoft .NET technology.
