Bechtle increases footprint in Switzerland
Neckarsulm/Horgen, 8 January 2018 – Bechtle AG has acquired Horgen-based Acommit AG, a leading service provider for software and IT infrastructure solutions in Switzerland. Founded in 1983, the company is a recognised specialist for ERP software based on Microsoft Dynamics/NAV, as well as its own solution, DIAS. With 60 employees and offices in Horgen, Wallisellen, Lyss, and Lucerne, Acommit has generated revenues to the amount of some 14 million Swiss francs in its most recent fiscal year. Its extensive customer base includes over 200 small and medium-sized businesses in Switzerland. The company’s previous owners—Martin Küng, Christoph Kleiner, Erich Wieser and Robert Zanzerl—will maintain their current leadership positions within the company. The Acommit brand will also remain intact.
“Acommit is a very well established addition to the Bechtle Group. We are delighted to welcome such an excellent team of specialists to support our future-oriented business with Microsoft Dynamics software solutions,” says Andreas Staudigel, Executive Vice President for Application Solutions, Bechtle AG. Acommit puts a focus on industry-specific ERP solutions, in particular for customers in the retail sector, driving the digitalisation of business processes.
Acommit’s customers now benefit from the whole breadth of the Bechtle Group’s IT portfolio, including cloud services and cross-vendor infrastructure solutions. Robert Zanzerl, CEO, Acommit AG: “Our expertise blends seamlessly with the Bechtle offering. Joining forces allows us to strengthen our own position in the market, and at the same time add great value for our customers in terms of application solutions, software engineering, and IT infrastructure. We are convinced that our companies will complement, enrich, and benefit from each other.” Both partners have agreed to keep the acquisition price confidential.
