Digia acquires Accountor Enterprise Solutions Oy in order to strengthen its growth in the digital business solutions market
Digia Plc and Accountor Holding Oy signed an agreement on 27 June 2019, through which Digia Plc will acquire the entire share capital of Accountor Enterprise Solutions Oy (AES). The transaction date is 1 August 2019.
Accountor has been working on redefining its strategy in the past years. As a result of this work, Accountor has decided to divest Accountor Enterprise Solutions Oy to Digia Oyj.
”We believe that this enables Accountor Enterprise Solutions Oy to further develop its business and continue serving their customers in a very good way. We have been very satisfied with the excellent performance of the unit and would like to thank everybody for contributing,” says Accountor’s CEO Niklas Sonkin.
The transaction is part of Digia’s growth strategy, which is focused on the development of our customers’ digital business. The ERP and CRM operations play a part in this. By joining our forces, we can offer even more comprehensive solutions to our customers. After the acquisition, more than 360 professionals will work in Digia’s ERP and CRM systems service area.
“ERP systems are core elements in digitalisation. Often, they are connected to CRM systems and, for instance, web store or analytics systems. Digia’s strengths include providing its customers with functional and developing comprehensive solutions using suitable technologies and continuously developing its competence and service offering. For the personnel, the acquisition will create new opportunities to work on interesting projects”, says Timo Levoranta, President and CEO of Digia.
