What We Do

Leading Vertical Solutions

01 //

We provide mid-sized customers with software that enables them to compete head-to-head with larger competitors – easy to use, fully integrated and at a fraction of the cost. By leveraging periphery technologies, such as Business Intelligence or Content Management, we improve the quality of our tech solutions as well as the availability of experts.

Instead of standardized platforms with multiple customizations required, our companies have developed solutions that are target-specific and fit-for-purpose and therefore easier, faster, and less risky to implement. This is because we know our customer’s business and understand that IT projects need to minimize risk and be as self-service oriented and efficient as possible.

Developing Talent

02 //

Our talented people benefit from the security of working for a well resourced, stable business with the flexibility that comes from working in small teams, with a true customer focus and license to design and implement to best meet their needs. Our People have group-wide options to learn and grow, both internationally as well as in new verticals.

We develop talent and provide our people with opportunities to build their careers across the group, including working from more than 20 locations. We are investing in newly created talent hubs in summer and winter locations to provide a new working experience, addressing the need for an attractive, inspiring work-life balance.

Supporting Hidden Champions

03 //

We are the natural home for growing, industry specific software companies, which are often hidden champions of their sectors. We understand entrepreneurs and that one size does not fit all. Our individual approach (including brand and management continuity) fosters entrepreneurial decisions at a customer level.

We also recognize that we are stronger together, being able to provide the resources, investment and know-how needed to scale and fulfill our ambitions. This includes shared services, growth financing, leveraging our geographic reach, taking an integrated approach to technology development and maximizing sales and marketing opportunities.
