Dortmund (euro adhoc) - adesso AG has emerged victorious in a Europe-wide tender
by its largest customer, the BITMARCK group of companies, and will remain the
group's key contract partner for up to four more years. The Dortmund-based IT
service provider was able to position itself on 32 of 39 tendered lots as one of
five contract partners to take on potential consultancy and software development
orders. This was a further step in adesso's efforts to expand its commitment to
the customer. 

BITMARCK, the software and systems vendor of the company and guild health
insurance funds and DAK, is involved in the continuous development of the
"iskv_21c" information system together with adesso and additional realisation
partners, and is working on introducing the system at Germany's statutory health
insurance providers. In future, administrative and information processes for
some 26 million insured patients in Germany will be processed via the system. As
part of the major project, adesso has been one of the BITMARCK group of
companies' main development partners for more than ten years. Once again, adesso
has won the customer over with its expertise, quantitative selection criteria
and price. The customer divided the attractive order volume into 39 functional
lots in September 2012 and invited companies from around Europe to tender. An
independent tender partner of BITMARCK coordinated the multi-stage selection
procedure. They selected both general contractual partners and the specific
contractors for a majority of the individual realisation bids, which were open
at the same time. adesso tendered offers for 34 of the 39 lots as a contract
partner and was awarded a contract for 32 lots. At the same time, contractors
for specific consultancy and realisation orders were selected from the five
remaining contract partners for a majority of the lots according to predefined
quantitative and qualitative criteria. 

With more than 1,300 employees and more than EUR 250 million in annual sales,
BITMARCK is the largest full-service IT provider for Germany's statutory health
insurance providers. The group of companies realises intelligent IT solutions
for company and guild health insurance funds, DAK-Gesundheit and other approved
alternative health insurance funds (Ersatzkassen). The renewed large order from
one of the leading players in the market, and adesso's key customer for many
years, means a high degree of security when it comes to staff and sales
planning. The health care sector is one of adesso's core industries, which
contributes some 14 % to the company's annual sales.
