KYOCERA plans to acquire leading ECM solutions provider OPTIMAL SYSTEMS

  • The planned acquisition expands Kyocera's portfolio of solutions
  • TA Triumph-Adler and OPTIMAL SYSTEMS further expand partnership
  • Customers benefit from integrated information management
Nuremberg, 09.01.2020 Kyocera is consistently pursuing the transformation of document management and, with its planned acquisition of OPTIMAL SYSTEMS, is expanding its range of services to include high-quality information management. Against this backdrop, TA Triumph-Adler GmbH and OPTIMAL SYSTEMS are intensifying their long-standing partnership.

OPTIMAL SYSTEMS is one of the leading German owner-managed providers of enterprise content management software (ECM). More than 450 employees in Germany, Serbia, Austria and Switzerland manage the systems and ECM solutions of several thousand customers, some of them from all over the world.

OPTIMAL SYSTEMS' core competencies include almost 30 years of experience in software development, broad experience in providing ECM solutions for all kinds of industries in the market, and software-related services at various levels. OPTIMAL SYSTEMS' high level of expertise in technical integration, customisation and personal expertise have proven to be particularly valuable.

TA Triumph-Adler GmbH and OPTIMAL SYSTEMS have been working together successfully on ECM projects for many years now and have a large number of joint customers. As part of the Kyocera Group, both companies will now be able to offer medium-sized customers comprehensive information management solutions in an even more targeted manner and consequently grow together.

OPTIMAL SYSTEMS offers a wide range of software solutions and in so doing perfectly complements the enterprise content management portfolio of the Kyocera Group. Kyocera hopes that the investment will enable it to offer its customers more than before with a broader portfolio and thereby tap into new target audiences. OPTIMAL SYSTEMS remains independent and will continue to operate unchanged.

Norihiko Ina, President of Kyocera Document Solutions Inc.: “Thanks to this collaboration, we can now provide new and perfectly tailored packages of consulting, hardware, software and services, regardless of location and at any time, which can be used to make our customers' business processes even more efficient.”

Karsten Renz, founder and CEO of OPTIMAL SYSTEMS GmbH said of the acquisition: “We are completely convinced that we will grow more quickly internationally as part of the Kyocera Group, because we can now also share our ECM expertise with customers from the Kyocera Group in order to support them in their digitisation processes. Developing cost-effective, customer-focused solutions is part of the mission statement of both companies. In keeping with this philosophy, OPTIMAL SYSTEMS and Kyocera therefore complement each other perfectly. We also already have a long-standing successful partnership with TA Triumph-Adler GmbH, a subsidiary of Kyocera, which we can now strengthen even further.”
