In September 2016, Boyum IT Solutions, the world’s leading supplier of software solutions for the ERP system SAP Business One, acquired the Swiss beas Group, a top international provider of manufacturing software for SAP Business One. Boyum IT has now acquired the Belgian company Produmex, which gives them a unique position in the warehouse management market.

Produmex, formerly part of SAP consulting company Movilitas Consulting, specializes in warehouse management. With this acquisition, Boyum IT Solutions expands its portfolio of products for the SAP Business One ERP system in the global SMB segment. With 500 partners in 92 countries, Boyum IT Solutions has been building the industry’s largest customer base since 2004, and the acquisition of Produmex creates opportunities in a brand new market, with the ability to offer a complete solution for complex inventory management.

The acquisition of beas Group earned Boyum IT Solutions an extremely strong position in the manufacturing market. ”Similarly, the acquisition of Produmex ensures that we can now offer our customers a complete solution for inventory management. Produmex is a large global solution provider within the SAP Business One community, and by welcoming their team and products into the Boyum fold, we will strengthen our market- leading position. These two products complement each other perfectly, and the combination enables us to provide our partners with the comprehensive solution they require. All in all, we are very pleased with this transaction and the merger of the two companies”, says Mikael Boyum, CEO and founder of the Boyum Group.

“Joining forces with Boyum IT Solutions just makes strategic sense’’, says Kris Adriaenssens CEO and founderof Produmex. ‘’Combining our teams and world leading supply chain and manufacturing solutions provides our partners with the competitive edge to compete in the fierce ERP landscape to their customer’s advantage.’’

The Danish technology-focused private equity fund, GRO Capital, invested in Boyum IT Solutions in connection with the acquisition of the beas Group, and the strengthening of Boyum IT Solutions is fully aligned with their strategy for Boyum IT Solutions.

Boyum IT Solutions provides software solutions for the continued global digitalization of small and medium- sized businesses. ‘We have had an eye on Produmex for a while, as with it we will achieve a unique position in the manufacturing business segment, in which customers often also need a warehouse management solution. With an overall market growth of 10% p.a., the growth potential of each of Boyum’s individual software solutions is attractive, but the combination of beas and Produmex will be very strong in the SAP Business One market, and will hopefully accelerate the growth of Boyum IT Solutions’, comments Lars Lunde, partner in GRO Capital.

The acquisition of Produmex brings Boyum IT Solutions 50 new employees – the total number of employees in the Solutions part of the company is now over 100. In the last fiscal year, Boyum IT Group realized a revenue of just over DKK 100 million.

Clearview Trade tager endnu et stort skridt fremad

Det er fornøjelse at læse Børsen idag, som skriver hvordan danske eksportchefer kan nu vinke farvel til kopimaskiner, scannere, papircertifikater, ventetid og koncentrere sig om at optimere salg og markedsføring til nye eksportmarkeder.

Den danske eksport bliver nu digitaliseret med Dansk Industri i front, og det vil gøre det langt lettere og billigere for danske virksomheder at nå ud til fjerne og nye markeder.

På samme måde som Mærsk og IBM gennem blockchain-teknologi vil revolutionere logistikmarkedet, kan digitaliseringen af dansk eksport blive en gamechanger, mener parterne.

Efter halvandets års forberedelse har Clearview Trade nu gennem sin cloud-baserede platform Eksportportalen fået digitaliseret eksportområdet og alle fire danske erhvervsorganisationer, Dansk Erhverv, Dansk Industri, Landbrug & Fødevarer og SMVDanmark har købt løsningen.

Den danske virksomhed Clearview skal stå for digitaliseringen, og topchef Morten Jensen Øllgaard ser sig selv som del af en global digitaliseringsbølge, der har til hensigt at ændre verden til det bedre.

“Vi er jo en del af samme internationale strømning, som vi ser forene Mærsk og IBM og deres blockchain-baserede logistik-partnerskab. Det er nemlig dyrt og besværligt at eksportere, og alt er hidtil blevet ordnet manuelt. Dvs. stempler, udprintning, scanning, attestering osv. Nu digitaliserer vi hele dette dokument-flow,” lyder det fra Clearview-topchefen, som for godt halvandet år siden spurgte en række danske virksomheder om deres oplevelse med bureaukratiet, der traditionelt har fulgt med det at eksportere henover mange landegrænser.

De blev helt blanke i øjnene, når vi spurgte ind til dette her problem med eksport-bureaukrati. International handel er meget fragmenteret og en tung og langsommelig affære, konstaterer Clearview-bossen, der også ser et mål i sig selv at frigøre ressourcer hos virksomhederne.”

Hvis en nordjysk radarfabrikant vil ud på verdensmarkedet, kan vi strømline al dokumentflow og certifikater, undgå overkapacitet og gennem digitalisering gøre en organisation langt mere smidig og effektiv,” fortæller Morten Jensen Øllgaard.

Boyum IT Solutions Acquires BEAS


Boyum IT Solutions A/S acquires Swiss beas group AG and GRO Capital becomes shareholder

csm_C-Uq6HxXgAAgROA_3ac43056f9Boyum IT Solutions A/S has today completed the acquisition of the Swiss company beas group AG, the top international provider of manufacturing software for SAP Business One. The acquisition is part of Boyum IT Solutions’ growth strategy and strengthens the company’s position as the leading global Software Solution Provider. “With this acquisition we are not just expanding our software portfolio with a powerful solution for manufacturers – at the same time we are increasing both our customer portfolio by more than 800 and our number of employees significantly,” says CEO and continued shareholder, Mikael Boyum. In connection with the acquisition of beas group, the Danish technology-focused private equity fund GRO Capital becomes a minority shareholder in Boyum IT Solutions.

 

Brabrand, 5st September 2016

Boyum IT Solutions has today completed the acquisition of beas group, and will in the coming months focus on combining the best of the two companies for the benefit of customers, partners and employees. The acquisitionexpands Boyum IT Solutions’ software portfolio with an award-winning manufacturing add-on for the global SMB segment of SAP Business One.

Boyum IT Solutions’ products are currently used in more than 70 countries by over 3,000 customers, and are distributed through more than 250 SAP Business One partners. “The synergies in this acquisition are very clear and we see exciting opportunities in the integration of the two companies. We will manage and run a joint business and bring together the best elements of the two companies, “says Mikael Boyum, adding: “The acquisition of beas significantly strengthens our global brand and we are confident that Boyum IT Solutions’ global support structure will give additional value to beas’ many successful partners”.

Prior to this acquisition, beas was headed up by founder Willi Jost, who will stay on as a board member of the beas group AG. “After 6 years in a row awarded by SAP as SAP Business One Solution Partner (SSP) of the Year, our solution has proven itself to be robust for 14 industries in discrete and process manufacturing. I have searched for an expansion strategy to accelerate the development of this market potential and it was clear to me that it had to come from the SAP Business One community, so I was thrilled to find that same vision in Mikael – who I have known for many years – from Boyum IT Solutions.

Willi Jost explains further: “Boyum’s technology with our vertical solution know-how and approach, and a similar international and virtual culture are only a few of the synergies of this match. The beas team will keep its expert perspective, so it was and remains valuable for customers, partners and SAP to trust in beas”.

The acquisition increases Boyum IT Group’s turnover to more than 100 million DKK and the number of employees to nearly 100 people. SAP are also excited about the deal, with Senior Vice President and General Manager for SAP Business One, Luis Murguia, explaining: “It’s great to see two of Business One’s top SSP Partners joining forces to accelerate the en- trance of SMBs into the Digital Economy”.

Similarly, Patrick Carpreau – Head of the SSP Program EMEA – is favourably disposed: “We’re enthusiastic aboutthe merger of two significant global players in the SAP Business One partner community. This will increase value for customers and partners who will benefit from new services, joint innovations and an extended product portfolio”.

The strong relationship with SAP has always been central to Boyum IT. Since the company back in 2009 recruited SAP’s then Global Head of SAP Business One, Niels Stenfeldt into the board of Boyum IT, it was the profitable growth, – based on SAP’s Business One platform, which was central to its strategy. “We have increased our revenue tenfold over the last 5 years, and the goal of GRO Capital’s entry into the group of owners was not simply to complete this acquisition, but also to ensure that we have strong foundations for the future, with the potential for further consolidation,” says company Chairman Niels Stenfeldt.

Niels Stenfeldt continues as chairman of Boyum IT Solutions and notes in relation to the new co-owner GRO Capital: “Initially we had several possible routes but there was a great chemistry from the outset with GRO Capital, who with their focused investment in technology-driven companies like Trifork, Trackunit and Auditdata showed impressive knowledge of the many opportunities and challenges a growth company such as Boyum IT Solutions faces. They contribute to the future security of the company in numerous ways, providing the means to becoming an even bigger global provider of software solutions for SAP Business One that can better meet each customer’s individual needs, “concludes Niels Stenfeldt.

In connection with the transaction Lars Lunde, partner at GRO Capital says: “We are very pleased to enter as a minority shareholder of Boyum IT Solutions and thereby have the opportunity to work with a very competent and ambitious management and support the company with capital as well as knowledge. The combination of Boyum IT Solutions and beas is very strong, since it combines a leading horizontal software portfolio for SAP Business One with the leading vertical solution provider in the manufacturing segment. There will be no doubt that the two companies will be able to learn from each other to the benefit of the implementation partners and ultimately the end users, and we see great potential in accelerating growth in the global SMB segment in close cooperation with SAP Business One “.
