Kyocera Document Solutions Europe is expanding their service offering with the acquisition of the German based company Alos GmbH, which specialises in data management.
Kyocera has completed the purchase of Alos Solution, a system provider of capture and Enterprise Content Management solutions (ECM) in German-speaking countries.
Alos possess over 100 employees based in Germany and Switzerland, providing solutions to several thousand customers across the globe.
Alos has more than 60 years of experience working with clients such as Kraft, BP, AT&T and Unilever. By capitalising on Alos’ key strengths of providing intelligent data acquisition solutions through automated workflows with legally compliant archiving processes, Kyocera says it hopes to gain synergies from the investment alongside broader customer access.
The company will continue on an independent basis with a three-year integration process planned, reporting directly to Kyocera Document Solutions Deutschland. The acquisition is the latest step in Kyocera’s development in the realm of total document management, described by the OEM as a key growth area for the company.
Takuya Marubayashi, President of Kyocera Document Solutions Europe said, “As a company we are focused on driving forward the advancement of document solutions to meet our customers modern business needs, both physical and digital, to ensure safe, effective and high quality management of processes. Alos will form part of our approach in providing tailor-made, cost-effective solutions that will complement our range of quality products and services.”
“We are convinced that the merger will benefit our customers, partners and employees,” added Alos’ GmbH Vice President, Friedhelm Schnittker. “The comprehensive Kyocera product range, paired with Alos’ scanning solutions, offers great potential. We look forward to working together to seize this opportunity for the benefit of all stakeholders.”
Kyocera explains that Alos “perfectly completes” the OEM’s portfolio by strengthening areas such as data acquisition, Enterprise Content Management and Business Process Management, thereby providing “highly available and secure document output”.
