Outforce acquires MindZet


Danish IT provider Outforce A/S acquires IT company MindZet. The acquisition is based on a joint wish to further strengthen the two companies based on the obvious synergies and offer the customers a wider selection of professional services.

Outforce A/S continues its growth focused development. The IT company based in Middelfart acquires MindZet, another Danish IT company, and with MindZet’s four divisions in Denmark Outforce secures a considerable growth of the overall business and a doubling of the number of employees.  
- Since 2009, we have had a great co-operation with MindZet, and therefore the two companies have extensive insight into our shared competencies. We are both Microsoft partners, and I see a number of services and competencies that makes the company an ideal match for us. Amongst other things MindZet has valuable experience in professional services and outsourcing to medium sized and big companies, not to mention automation and general large-scale operations. Actually, a number of our customers already pointed out to us that together with MindZet we would be able to put down a strong and significant marker in the market, CEO of Outforce, Enrico Augustinus says.

Outforce and MindZet continue as independent brands
The acquisition is based on a joint wish to further strengthen the two companies by leveraging synergies and offer customers a single entry to all of Outforce and MindZet’s products and services. The companies continue to operate under their existing names and as independent units.
- We remain as two separate companies, but going forward we operate with a single entry to our services and product, as well as our new portfolio of products will be greater and more extensive. This is in line with the demands of our customers, and it makes us more attractive to potential new customers, Enrico Augustinus adds.

At MindZet, CEO Morten Waltorp Knudsen is equally excited about the perspectives of the acquisition.
- We complement each other very well, and we run our businesses based on the same fundamental values. It has been very important for me to identify a strong partner, who can take MindZet to the next level. With this acquisition, we strengthen our services to customers, when it comes to hosting and software licencing. At the same time this move means our customers get access to even greater expertise and critical mass in customer support and Citrix and Microsoft server competencies, Morten Waltorp Knudsen says.    

At Morten Waltorp Knudsen’s own request he will continue in the new setup as Sales Director in MindZet.
- It has been hugely important to me to return to a position, where I have a more direct line of communication with our customers on a daily base. It’s vital we are on top of the challenges our customers meet and feel in their everyday work life in order to innovate and develop our products. It’s all about creating value for our customers, and at the end of the day, they define our services, he adds.
