Integration and adaption

cii has its strengths in its adaptability. cii is fully customisable and adaptable and can be used with existing structures and sheets and make use of them without complex integration. It can be fully customised to your needs. As most sustainability management software solutions meet the needs of their customers only to a certain degree and need a lot of adjustments on customer side, cii is developed as a solution that fits the needs of our customers and adapts to your demands and not the other way around. We offer an evolving solution developed in close consultation with our customers and our global partner network.


cii is an Excel-to-Web solution. This means we will transfer existing Excel-sheets, reports or templates to the cii web interface and add database driven OLAP functionalities. This gives you and your coworkers the look-and-feel of using Excel but with the advanced functionality of a database driven system. Data entry becomes safer and analytics can be done within cii with customized dashboards or directly in your familiar Excel environment. Providing you with the best of both worlds.

Fully hosted SaaS solution

cii is a “Software-as-a-Service” (SaaS) solution, this means maintenance and administration as well as guaranteeing the availability of the service relies on us. Centralised updates of reports and emission factors are also part of our services. As a SaaS solution provider we guarantee highest data security by using the https-protocol and using German based servers.

Customisable Dashboards

We provide a fixed set of standard dashboard charts and tables with all our modules. But as we know that every organisation even every user is different, we provided cii with the option to use customised dashboards for every user that will fit your needs completely.

Custom Analytics

Analysis and reporting can be adapted to your organisation´s specific demands as rules and conversions for calculations are customisable. As cii can perform integrated service options like sales data retrieval, there are new options for an integrated reporting (LINK) of financial and non-financial data within one solution. Future proof.

Emissions Forecasting

Most data is already available in the operative system of your company as sales planning data. cii can automatically access this data via interfaces. With this data in cii you can have an eye on your future emissions with your act and plan data or test and develop new strategies by using our scenario options.

Fast Implementation

We offer a running system that can be implemented in almost no time as we can use existing architectures and sheets of your system for first outcomes. We offer an fast and easy implementation process that  allows you to start sustainability management within weeks and not months or years as with other systems.
