What our Customers Say

"We did not want to delegate necessary restructuring within the group to external consultants, but rather to take it into our own hands. As mentors, the 4C consultants provided pragmatic support to responsible employees at the beginning of the change processes that were initially unfamiliar. In this way, the company's competence in project management was strengthened and can be called upon for future projects".

Hans-Joachim Lenke, Vorstandsvorsitzender, Ev. Diakoniewerk Schwäbisch-Hall

POLAVIS develops and implements innovative eHealth solutions for hospitals. The company was founded in 2015 as a spin-off of 4C GROUP AG with a focus on healthcare. Founded as "eHealth Ventures GmbH", its roots lay in the professional integration of B2C and B2B requirements. With the change of name to "POLAVIS GmbH", the established product brand became a leader. POLAVIS has grown steadily since the beginning and today focuses on digital eHealth products for hospitals. Thanks to its solid medium-sized financing and good sales situation, POLAVIS is independent of short-term interests and sustainably positioned in the hospital market.
