euroscript acquires Amplexor
15 January 2014
The majority of the shares were acquired from venture capital funds, managed by Capricorn Venture Partners and private investors, while the management keeps its vested interests within the company. Amplexor has a yearly turnover of approximately EUR 11 million and employs ~90 ECM consultants and experts in Belgium and Romania.
euroscript has successfully developed a range of solutions focusing on content-centric customer processes. Since 2005 euroscript has not only provided industry specific business process services such as language, content authoring and publishing services, but increasingly implements and maintains the applications supporting those processes.
Mark Evenepoel, Chief Executive Officer of the euroscript group states: “Amplexor has always been dedicated to delivering Enterprise Content Management solutions and focuses e.g. on Digital Experience Management and Collaboration. As Web Content Management technology consulting and implementation become increasingly important in our offering, we were looking at strengthening our competence base. Amplexor’s impeccable reputation and solid track record made them a perfect match.” Eric Pieters, Chief Executive Officer of Amplexor continues: “We have been successfully growing in the Belgian market and increasingly support global customers. We felt we needed to find a partner with a global footprint to continue growing internationally. Being a pure content management player, we wanted to make sure that Amplexor would be integrated in a group with the same dedication and comprehension of the business.”
With the Amplexor acquisition, euroscript employs a total of 1,600 employees across 3 continents of which more than 250 focus on designing, developing, implementing and maintaining ECM solutions. The team comprises Language Technology and ECM product experts from technology vendors such as Across, Adobe, Alfresco, Drupal, EMC2, Liferay, Microsoft, Oracle, PTC, SDL and XTM. This helps the group successfully address the challenges within Global Content Management, Marketing & Digital Experience Management, Product Information and After Sales Management, Plant Engineering Information Management, Official Publications and Digital Workspaces.
Amplexor stands for “pure content management". The company has expertise ranging from the development of intranet architectures to the implementation of information-driven websites. Amplexor’s consultants offer advice and implementation services in areas such as information architecture, search solutions, document management solutions and web content management platforms.
Amplexor’s growing customer base has enabled the company to gain a firm foothold in the Enterprise Content Management market. Over the past few years, Amplexor has worked for clients such as Agfa, Argenta, Christian Mutuality, Daikin Europe, Belfius, Digipolis, the European Commission, Euroclear, Fedict, Indaver, KBC, NMBS, the provinces of Antwerp, Limburg and Flemish Brabant, Puratos, Etex and Rabobank.
