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.
