Consline Intelligence Management System

As a cloud-based Software-as-a-Service solution (SaaS), the Consline Intelligence Management System (CIMS) combines the capabilities of Business Intelligence (BI), Qualitative Data Analysis (QDA) and Social Media Monitoring Tools.

Consline Intelligence Management System CIMS

CIMS enables companies and research institutes to structure, code and analyse qualitative and quantitative data AI-based across all sources and formats.

Being an integrated system, CIMS offers individually configurable analysis dashboards, workflow sharing, real-time alerting, multilingualism as well as comfortable import and direct connection of data and web harvesting via corresponding APIs.

CIMS users are enabled to detect patterns in data structures quickly and reliably, to benchmark findings from independent information channels and sources, to implement early warning systems and thus help shape the data- and information-driven management.

The scope of applications are manifold: From the detection of critical incidents through safety and security monitoring via the integrated analysis of studies and test series to an integrated worldwide quality management for companies.

CIMS Main Features

Please find a comparison of the CIMS features with BI, QDA and Social Media tools on this page further below.


According to the selected version, each CIMS is equipped with a multitude of functions (s. Services & Prices), which users can apply for the individual adaptation to their analysis tasks (e.g. input processing, dashboard configuration, category management, etc.).

In the Enterprise Version, extended functional modules are adapted to specific company requirements (e.g. APIs, rights/roles management, navigation structure, etc.).

Source Connection:

CIMS 6.0 offers the possibility to import internal and external data in Excel/csv format via a convenient interface and to assign it to an integrated hierarchical category system via a configurable mapping tool. In addition to that, own data sources and internet/social media sources can be directly connected via an API or dedicated web harvesters, respectively. This allows for a comprehensive analysis of data and information with different structure (e.g. quality data from warranty cases with call center feedback and customer opinions from online discussion boards).

Category and Source Manager:

Within CIMS 6.0, users can set up their own multidimensional hierarchical category trees and structure and edit them with drag & drop. The discrimination between tagging (assigning of an attribute) and rating categories (attribute with tonality and relevance scale) allows for a differentiated coding even of qualitative information. Likewise, internal and external sources can be set up, edited, clustered and assigned with individual expiry dates (to consider license restrictions).

Case Editor:

The Case Editor with optimized usability enables user to create new cases (text, image, video, audio) or edit cases which have been imported into CIMS. Complete cases or single verbatims can be coded with tagging and rating categories and thus made available for filtering and analyses. With the highlighting feature, a mouse-over leads to the marking of the verbatim corresponding with the category. The categorization can be executed in bulk (for several cases with the same attributes) or based on defined rules. AI-based category suggestions support especially when working with new data sets. The translation of case content can be done manually or automatically.

Case Viewer:

In Case Viewer, all cases which have been approved in the Case Editor will be displayed including translation, images, video and audio as well as all meta data (source, URL, data, time, etc.) and categories. The cases can be searched, clustered, ranked and selected by unlimited combinable filters and extended search functionalities. An AI-based word cloud with drill-in functionality allows for quick conclusions on correlations and associations. All cases can be exported with all corresponding meta data and categories. In addition to that, users can save their individual filters – and receive alerts per e-mail whenever new cases fulfilling the filter criteria appear in the system.


The analysis area offers unlimited options to combine diagrams to convenient dashboards which can be saved and shared with colleagues. Users can select from 29 diagrams including heatmaps, geographical maps, donut charts and cobwebs. Moreover, a simultaneous setup of several complex dashboards is possible. All diagrams and tables within the dashboards can be exported in a multitude of formats (e.g. jpg, gif, pdf) for use in own presentations and reports.


Workflow tools support the collaboration in teams, e.g. for individual status assignment of commenting of cases. For task prioritization, cases can be filtered by status. Data quality management is supported by automated audit status and approval processes.

Cross-CIMS Benchmarking:

A comprehensive Meta CIMS allows for comparative analyses – e.g. benchmarking of competitors or results from different studies.

Different category structures are merged with help of a dedicated category mapping tool, so that direct comparison and pattern detection is possible.


Besides online tool tips in the CIMS, Consline provides a technical hotline for all user questions. In addition to that, specific user trainings are offered both online and onsite.
