KYOCERA DOCUMENT SOLUTIONS ACQUIRES CEYONIQ GROUP
21 September 2015
Meerbusch, September 17, 2015 – KYOCERA Document Solutions, one of the world’s leading document solutions companies, announces the signing of an acquisition agreement for the Ceyoniq Group, headquartered in Bielefeld, Germany. This acquisition means KYOCERA Document Solutions has entered the growing “Enterprise-Content-Management (ECM)” market. Ceyoniq will remain a separate entity, with its own consultants and developers focused on its “nscale” product for optimisation and automatisation of document based processes.
Takashi Kuki, President of KYOCERA Document Solutions Inc. is sure of the benefit for both companies saying, “Our customers will profit most of all. They can now rely on us for an extended software offering, services and a solutions portfolio. This is a perfect extension of our hardware know-how and positions us strategically in the important ECM market. For Kyocera, it will mean increased revenues and market share through synergy of products.”
The ECM market has shown significant growth and until now KYOCERA participated through co-operations with other providers. Now the company can offer an in-house product portfolio in this segment. The Ceyoniq Group is made up of four companies that encompass the entire ECM value chain. With “nscale”, the company has established a flexible and scalable ECM platform solution, allowing processes in any company to be automated and transparent across teams so they work more efficiently.
“Together with our established consulting experience Ceyoniq fits our business model perfectly, we will expand our market potential.” says Takahiro Sato, President of KYOCERA Document Solutions Europe B.V.
Ceyoniq will continue to operate as an independent company. The current CEO André Ferlings will remain at the head of the company.
He comments: “In the ECM sector we are the technology leader with our product “nscale” and we are sure that together with KYOCERA we can convince new international customers of our increasing capabilities.”
The acquisition is conditional on the approval of regulatory authorities. It is expected to close no later than end of October 2015
