Mülheim a. d. Ruhr/Wien (ots Ad hoc-Service) - EASY SOFTWARE AG,
listed in the Neuer Markt section of the Frankfurt stock exchange
market, acquires 70% of the shares in the companies Archiv Austria
GmbH in Vienna and Archiv Consult GmbH in Salzburg, backdated to
January 1st of the current year.
Both software companies specialize in the document management and
electronic archiving fields of business and belong to the
market-leading distributors in Austria. In the future, the two
recently acquired businesses will function together under the shared
firm name of EASY SOFTWARE AG. According to the company, this serves
to promote its further internationalization; EASY will be represented
as a supplier of complete DMS solutions through its own branch
offices in Salzburg and Vienna.
Henceforth, the software manufacturer's new foreign subsidiary
will directly support and strategically expand the existing network
of sales partners in Austria. A number of major customers, including
renowned clients like Austrian Airlines or the Austrian National
Bank, will be directly serviced through EASY from now on. This is in
accordance with EASY's company goal of increasingly winning major
corporations as customers - especially in connection with the
standard business management software SAP R/3 - that require the
presence of the supplier in their own country for the implementation
of major projects.
The sales revenue of the new Austrian subsidiary - starting out
with 18 employees - is projected to double compared to the previous
year to DEM 4.5 million in the year 2000. The conservative figure for
projected sales revenues in the year 2001 is DEM 6.2 million.
Following the establishment of the US subsidiary EASY SOFTWARE
INC., the French EASY SOFTWARE SAS. and the British subsidiary EASY
SOFTWARE (UK) PLC. in Manchester and London, the Austrian company
joins them as the fourth foreign subsidiary.
EASY Company Information: EASY SOFTWARE is represented in over 30
countries through more than 450 distributors and sales partners and
belongs to the leading providers in the market for archiving and
document management systems with roughly 5,000 network installations.
Apart from its headquarters in Muelheim, the company, founded in 1990
and transformed into a stock corporation in 1998, has branch offices
in Berlin, Walldorf (SAP Competence Center), and Andernach. An
important step towards the expansion of EASY's international
activities was the foundation of its British subsidiary in London and
the first branch office in Manchester at the beginning of 2000.
Besides the US subsidiary founded in the first half of 1999 and the
French subsidiary, EASY is thus also directly represented in Europe's
second largest IT market. For more information concerning EASY and
