The German Company Data API lets you obtain detailed data about German companies currently or previously listed in the German Handelsregister. You can use this information to enrich your Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system or other B2B systems you have in use. A matching with your own data is possible through the powerful lookup mechanism. In addition, this API allows you to search and filter on the index of all German companies. Specifically, you can search for product names or technologies or certifications etc. You can filter results by location, industry, and size.
The German Company Data API provides detailed information about all companies listed in the German Handelsregister.

Furthermore we provide an efficient company lookup as well as a full-text search engine complete with filters by industry, company size, and location.
The API provides the following endpoints:
“Check Filling Level”-Group
For endpoints with a GET- and a POST-version: The GET-version requires you to have the Implisense company identifier at hand and provide it as a query parameter (though for companies with unique names, such as Implisense or Zalando, you can also use that as an identifier). The POST-version combines the
POST /lookup endpoint with the GET-version. I. e., you can specify a lookup request as documented, and the system with apply the GET-version of the endpoint to the first hit of the lookup.
A full documentation of the Implisense API is available here.
With the help of our public lookup you can permanently qualify your incoming requests free of charge. It doesn’t matter whether you are requesting a company name or an email address; our algorithms match the best company we can find for your request.

implisen.se acts as a permalink, because it can also be called with the Implisense-ID of a company. This gives you an unchangeable short link that is ideal for sharing with others. Like this one, for example:
The same service works also on the command line with the
curl-command and gives you the top hit free of charge in JSON format. For example:
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW'
If you have the
jq-tool installed, you can also get a pretty printed version of the above or process the result further:
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW' | jq '.'
curl -s -X GET 'https://implisen.se/BMW' | jq -r '.companies.name'
