november 27, 2023

Essen, 27.11.2023 – DextraData GmbH announces the sale of its IT Consulting & and Services business to CANCOM. With the purchase agreement concluded on November 27, the Munich-based company is taking over 57 employees of the Essen-based IT service provider in an asset deal. The remaining 105 DextraData employees at the locations Essen, Hamburg, Berlin, Mannheim and Munich will now concentrate completely on the strategic expansion of the SaaS business.

After 28 years, DextraData GmbH is parting with its traditional IT system house business and managed services with deep respect for the past and a clear vision for the future. This moving step is aimed at using the resources now freed up to further refine the high product quality of the software, expand marketing, reorganize sales and expand partnerships. At the same time, the former DextraData customers from the IT consulting and services business now supported by CANCOM will benefit from the broader partner network and the additional resources of the Munich-based hybrid IT service provider.

"The decision reflects our vision of becoming one of the leading software developers Made in Germany. Thanks to the increased operational efficiency, we can respond even more specifically to the growing customer expectations in the digitalization era. We are thus consistently continuing along the path we have chosen and handing over our valuable core into safe and more promising hands. This step offers development and expansion opportunities for both our employees and our customers. I would like to expressly thank them for their trusting and loyal cooperation. We will continue this - now under two flags," explains Shayan Faghfouri, founder and Managing Director of DextraData GmbH.

"The proven expertise of our new colleagues is an enrichment for the CANCOM Group in an economically strong region of Germany," adds Rüdiger Rath, CEO of CANCOM SE.

DextraData has been developing business applications and user-centered software since 2016. This was an early response to the conviction that purchasing decisions will increasingly be determined by the quality, scalability and efficiency of the underlying business processes and applications.  

With solutions such as GRASP, CIO COCKPIT, Dex7 and Logipad, DextraData offers innovative solutions that not only meet the highest quality standards, but are also the preferred choice for companies looking for forward-looking software solutions in the areas of process optimization, IT financial management, integrated risk management and IoT.

The sale of DextraData's IT Consulting & Services business to CANCOM is subject to the usual conditions precedent and antitrust approval. The transaction is expected to close at the beginning of January 2024.
