Dimo Maint announces the acquisition of Apisoft International, a recognized player in GMAO in France. This transaction, which includes the integration of 22 Apisoft International employees (resources , development, customer support and trade) will make it a major French and international player in the GMAO market (3,500 customers worldwide). This merger will allow us to offer a wider range of expert expertise dedicated to the attention of small, medium and large companies of national or international scope.
Optimaint: a recognized solution in the GMAO market
Apisoft International, whose revenue for the 2014-2015 financial year amounts to 2.2 million euros, has more than 1,000 customers of its OptiMaint solution. Developed in France, the GMAO OptiMaint is marketed in France and internationally through a network of reseller partners. For more than 20 years, Apisoft International has been offering small, medium and large companies a comprehensive solution for managing and organizing the maintenance function, easy to use, fast to deploy and adapted to all sectors of activity: industry, tertiary, services, communities.
Jean Paul Genoux, Managing Director of Dimo Software, explains:
"The acquisition of Apisoft International strengthens our position in the computer-aided maintenance management (GMAO) market and responds to the group's external growth strategy, which Dimo Software has been engaged in since 2001. Beyond the financial and commercial dimensions, this merger has a very important human value in terms of acquiring individual skills, experience and collective know-how. The sharing of good practices between the employees of the two companies and the sharing of information between the managers of the various departments are a key factor for success.
Our very strong growth, which has been going on for several years, will be further amplified by our new ability to cover all the needs of all market segments both in France and internationally. Born from two successful takeovers, we are very pleased to welcome today the employees of Apisoft International within the Dimo Maint subsidiary of the Dimo Software Group. The new set is expected to reach 7 million euros and 70 employees, positioning us as a major player in Europe."
Strong synergies between Apisoft and DIMO Maint
Christian Jahier, initiator and manager of Apisoft lnternational since its inception in 1994, says: "After more than twenty years at the helm of Apisoft, I have decided to sell my company for retirement next April. To define the choice of the taker, I had set myself two priority objectives: the safeguarding of the entire Nantes team (22 people) and the sustainability of the OptiMaint software. Among the few proposals that were made to me, I was quickly seduced by that of DIMO Maint. Not only because it met these two objectives perfectly, but also because I was convinced that the merger and synergy between the two companies Apisoft and DIMO Maint would consolidate a major player of GMAO in France and internationally. From the first meetings, the two teams got along perfectly, and the desire to build and look in the same direction was very strong. I am therefore very confident today about the success of this merger, and I am convinced that our clients, who have chosen OptiMaint, will be the first beneficiaries of this success. I also take the opportunity to announce the upcoming release of version 7 of OptiMaint, version of the software completely rewritten with Microsoft's development tool: Visual Studio 2015 and the C-language."
