Kern AG


Kern AG – Who are we?

Kern AG is one of the leading providers of modern corporate planning software for the fields of controlling, finance, sales, distribution and logistics. For almost 20 years, we have been bridging the gap between Microsoft Excel and SAP with our products. Our core competency is complete integration of Excel in SAP. The technology we developed for this purpose is unrivalled and form the basis of our planning and controlling solutions, Allevo. Our Excel add-in and reporting tool, Sparks, can also be used solely with Microsoft Excel, i.e. independent of SAP.

From global players like Adidas, Siemens and PWC to national giants such as ADAC, EnBW and Müllermilch, and to local institutions, such as municipal utility companies, public transport service providers and clinics — our controlling and reporting tools are valued by almost 250 companies.

What does "KERN" stand for?

Since 2004, our name has reflected our motto "Komplexe Ereignisse Reduziert Nachbilden" (Complex Events Reduce Replication). Through this, we place ourselves under creative pressure to be the best instead of second best.


What sets us apart?

Kern AG offers an all-inclusive package with development, consultation and support, all under one roof. Our methodical, yet flexible approach allows us to react to problems swiftly and solve them straight away.

For us, the client and their individual needs are always in focus. That’s why we maintain a cooperative and resolutely solution-oriented relationship with our business partners. Our solutions always focus on the core of the matter, increase the company’s productivity, sustainably promote transparency, and make a positive contribution to the profitability of business processes.

With our expertise, we can assist you in all matters relating to the interaction between Microsoft Excel and SAP. From Excel, to SAP, ABAP, VBA, .NET and Java, right up to Access – we have competencies across the board.


What benefits can you enjoy from us as an employee?

We offer our staff a corporate culture that welcomes employees with children and promotes a healthy work-life balance. In cooperation with IHK Freiburg and the Cooperative State Universities in Lörrach and Mannheim, we offer young talent the opportunity to obtain a valuable education that offers the best prospects for the future. In doing so, our goal is to take the young people on as full-time employees after they have completed their studies. As we are passionate about the environment, we encourage the use of public transport by fully subsidizing our employees’ ticket costs.

Environmental protection & social commitment

Environmental protection is very close to our hearts. That is why we are pleased to be able to support the Naturschutzbund Südbaden with a sponsorship to protect the nearby Taubergießen nature reserve with its unique floodplain forest landscape and thus secure important habitats for the native flora, insects and fauna there.

However, we are also particularly concerned with protecting our environment in our day-to-day work. That is why we offer our customers and interested parties web sessions instead of on-site appointments. This saves time and doesn’t require you to travel. Internally, we are reducing our ecological footprint by working digitally wherever possible. This reduces our paper consumption. Moreover, our modern offices help to protect the environment with their sustainable energy concept, and our business trips are as green as possible too. We prefer to travel by public transport or form carpools.


We also take our social responsibility very seriously. In Freiburg, we have been involved for several years now with the social association "Alles ist anders", which provides professional care and support for mourning children and young people, and recently also for CLEFT Kinderhilfe e. V., which helps children with cleft lip and palate worldwide, finances necessary operations and follow-up treatments for those affected and ensures medical care on site. We make a modest contribution on behalf of each child of our employees, so that affected children can find ways out of their grief and find stability, security and reliability again, and so that children with cleft lip and palate can lead a normal life.
