Focus on Cloud Business for Content Services and Digital Process Automation
JobRouter® distributor becomes US branch / More than 80 customers and partners expand JobRouter network / Clear focus on expansion of alliances in the ECM/DPA & Cloud area
Mannheim, November 9, 2018 - JobRouter AG, a globally active manufacturer of a cross-industry low-code digitization platform based in Mannheim, Germany, today announced the acquisition of BPS-24, a JobRouter distributor based in Southfield, Michigan, USA, with the support of its strategic partner Main Capital. BPS-24 founder and former CEO Wolfgang Kaden will assume the role of Chief Operating Officer US and lead the subsidiary. He will report directly to JobRouter Co-CEOs Axel Ensinger and Marcus Nagel. Since 2009, BPS-24 has been marketing the JobRouter digitization platform through a partner network with a continuously growing customer base that includes well-known companies and organizations from all sectors. The US company location is also intended to expand the JobRouter cloud business for content services and digital process automation.
"Following the strategic investment by Private Equity Partner Main Capital at the turn of the year 2017/18, we have now taken the next step in our growth strategy," said Marcus Nagel, JobRouter Co-CEO & CCO. "The US market is particularly important for us on the road to further internationalization. Wolfgang Kaden has done a very good amount of groundwork and has driven forward the brand awareness of the JobRouter platform. Now is the time to invest more in expansion in order to maintain our position in this very fast-moving market. We see great potential, both from a technological and a sales point of view, to make a leap forward".
Since its foundation in 2013, JobRouter AG has been able to report an average annual sales growth of 26 percent and an exponential increase in software licenses.
"Of course there are many players on the American Enterprise Content Management (ECM) and Digital Process Automation (DPA) market, but there are few solutions that can be compared with the unique combination of workflow, document and data management in one platform," adds Axel Ensinger, Co-CEO and CPO at JobRouter. "Groundbreaking analysts and technology companies are based in the USA and are driving global networking forward. We want to be closer to this and take advantage of potential strategic cooperations. We are very pleased to have found in Wolfgang Kaden a managing director who knows the US market and the potential of the platform. This combination is unbeatable".
"In our function as a US distributor, we have successfully established ourselves in the US market together with JobRouter AG in recent years," says Wolfgang Kaden, Chief Operating Officer at JobRouter US. "JobRouter, with its outstanding range of functions and forward-looking technology, is ideally positioned to meet the individual digitization challenges of companies worldwide efficiently, securely and flexibly. The acquisition now gives us the opportunity to further expand our market presence and respond even faster to customer requirements. In the USA, the cloud business and openness to innovative technologies will also open up new business potential that we want to exploit to the full."
