SCAN COIN acquires Swiss software company
28 May, 2012
As part of its new strategy for growth, Swedish SCAN COIN has acquired the Swiss based software company SoftOne.
“By acquiring SoftOne, we broaden SCAN COIN’s software offer considerably. SoftOne has been an important partner for the past years, which has allowed us to sell integrated solutions. We are very happy to welcome SoftOne into the SCAN COIN group”, says Mr. Andreas Renulf, Group Managing Director of SCAN COIN. “We believe that this acquisition will benefit our customers, and give us a better competitive edge.”
SoftOne’s offer is to integrate hardware with software systems, to maximise the benefits from the hardware installations. With its modular construction, the integration process is dramatically reduced, saving both time and money for the customers.
“Belonging to a group like SCAN COIN with a worldwide presence gives our company a new perspective. Our specific knowledge in integrating cash handling solutions into retail and banking systems will team up perfectly with that from SCAN COIN. Together we can make truly unique offers to our customers, that our competitors will have difficulties matching. ” says Mr. Pascal Pagny, Managing Director of SoftOne.
SoftOne is based in Swiss Châtel St-Denis.
