Business Activities Consolidated / AC-Service in Austria

Two Austrian subsidiaries of AC-Service AG combined under All for One Midmarket Solutions & Services GmbH in Vienna. Another step in building a full-scale SAP Service Provider business line with an end-to-end range of products and services for small to mid-sized businesses.

Vienna, Stuttgart, 16 July 2007 – The AC-Group is consolidating its business operations in Austria. All for One Midmarket Solutions & Services GmbH in Vienna, which arose from AC-Service GmbH of Vienna and until now was focused on Managed IT Services, will be combined with the Vienna-based AC Solutions EDV BeratungsgmbH & Co KG in order to expand the range of All for One services in Austria and become a full-scale SAP service provider. Leo Fuchs will continue to manage the SAP consulting and business intelligence activities within the expanded All for One in Austria. Peter Kaiser and Erich Losert will be responsible for sales and the acquisition of end-to-end projects. Wolfgang Bidmon will head the Managed IT Services division. AC-Service AG of Stuttgart will remain the sole shareholder. In the future its »AC« name, as the AC-Group's master brand, will remain the centrepiece of communications with the capital market, while the company's presence as a full-scale SAP service provider on the client markets in Austria as well as in Germany will be made using the »All for One« brand with the endorsement »Member of AC-Group«. This change under corporate law in Austria is made as part of the implementation of the business model of a full-scale SAP service provider for midmarket companies. The All for One sister company in Germany already ranks as one of the leading SAP small and mid-sized business partners within its market and last year was able to win some 50 new clients. The collaboration between All for One in Germany and Austria will be intensified even further in order to take the best-possible advantage of the business opportunities on the SAP market in Austria. »The SAP small and mid-sized business marketplace in Austria is in a state of upheaval, a situation that improves our chances of being able to move significantly forward in this area. With fixed-price packages, which besides the industry solutions and their implementation also include operation from within the Managed IT Service Center, we are emphasising our end-to-end approach as a full-scale service provider who ensures that IT systems, applications and business processes run together like clockwork«, says Leo Fuchs, the consulting manager of All for One in Austria.

SAP Austria supports this strategic path and, as part of its new service model for small to mid-sized businesses, has named All for One an industry partner for the auto-parts, machine-making, systems-engineering and service-provider industry segments.
