euroscript International SA closed the acquisition of the Heverlee (Leuven, Belgium) based content management solution provider Amplexor NV. The majority of the shares were acquired from venture capital funds, managed by Capricorn Venture Partners and private investors, while the management keeps its vested interests within the company. Amplexor has a yearly turnover of approximately EUR 11 million and employs ~90 ECM consultants and experts in Belgium and Romania.
euroscript has successfully developed a range of solutions focusing on

As Web Content Management technology consulting and implementation become increasingly important in our offering, we were looking at strengthening our competence base. Amplexor’s impeccable reputation and solid track record made them a perfect match.” Eric Pieters, Chief Executive Officer of Amplexor continues: “We have been successfully growing in the Belgian market and increasingly support global customers. We felt we needed to find a partner with a global footprint to continue growing internationally. Being a pure content management player, we wanted to make sure that Amplexor would be integrated in a group with the same dedication and comprehension of the business.”
With the Amplexor acquisition, euroscript employs a total of 1,600 employees across 3 continents of which more than 250 focus on designing, developing, implementing and maintaining ECM solutions. The team comprises Language Technology and ECM product experts from technology vendors such as Across, Adobe, Alfresco, Drupal, EMC2, Liferay, Microsoft, Oracle, PTC, SDL and XTM. This helps the group successfully address the challenges within Global Content Management, Marketing & Digital Experience Management, Product Information and After Sales Management, Plant Engineering Information Management, Official Publications and Digital Workspaces.

In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Yoav Mor, multi-cloud solution evangelist at Cloudy...
