Valuable Addition to SAP Consulting Business
Munich/Dornbirn (A), August 25, 2021: Digital solutions, consulting and software company valantic and the Dornbirn, Vorarlberg, Austria-based SAP consulting & services provider proTask are joining forces. The companies are pooling their expertise in the areas of their SAP services business and topic-specific SAP product add-ons, for which the company from Lake Constance is known far beyond Austria’s borders. The boutique consultancy, proTask, offers a wide range of SAP services including 24/7 hosting of the servers, licenses, consulting, implementation, training, SAP development and interface programming.
The numerous add-ons developed by proTask include software modules for various SAP use cases, such as for PoS system integration, digital signature solutions as well as solutions for mobile working time recording. proTask is thus a valuable addition to valantic’s SAP solution portfolio for B2B customers. Following the merger with specialist consultant for financial processes, verovis GmbH in June 2021, and with wdp GmbH, the specialist for C-level digital management consulting and digital M&A and transaction services in August 2021, proTask, is now valantic’s third expansion this year.
According to the Lünendonk Ranking 2021 (German only), valantic has evolved into one of the mid-market’s leading digital solutions providers in just a few years, through both organic and acquisition-led growth With its 1,500-plus IT consultants, the company offers industry-leading consulting and implementation services in the areas of digitalization consulting and business analytics, customer experience management (CX), supply chain management & logistics, as well as financial services automation. valantic’s SAP-related services and in-house development of SAP-based add-ons are another pillar of valantic’s offering. This product and service range is now being strengthened further by proTask’s software offering and consulting portfolio. This practically unique range of services distinguishes valantic from its many consultancy peers, positioning it to implement holistic digital transformation projects end-to-end for its customers.
proTask, which is based in Dornbirn, the economic center of the Austrian regional state of Vorarlberg, established itself as a consulting and service company shortly after its formation as a SAP partner in 1997. This was soon followed by its certification as a SAP Business and Service Partner. A large number of prominent customers – such as Vorwerk Austria, Linde Gas and SwissOptic – and its topic-specific SAP add-ons as well as its team of proven SAP experts make proTask especially valuable as a new member of the valantic family.
Customers benefit from massive synergy potential
The merger with proTask allows valantic to extend its portfolio of SAP service-related solutions and open up new synergy potentials with value add for its corporate customers. Furthermore, proTask not only offers a valuable enhancement to valantic’s portfolio through hosting and the provision of SAP services such as training, but also greater regional coverage through its location at the border triangle of Austria, Germany and Switzerland. As an industry-independent service provider, the Dornbirn-based SAP house supports national and international organizations with bespoke solutions for their IT projects – from consulting and planning to implementation, licensing and support – another similarity that proTask and valantic have in common.
“We’re delighted to have onboarded proTask as a competent new service partner in Austria and the border triangle, optimally complementing our expertise and competence in the area of SAP services, both regionally and functionally. I’m convinced that our regional and multinational large and midmarket customers can only benefit from the merger with proTask,” enthuses Dr. Holger von Daniels, CEO and Partner at valantic. “For quite a while now, we’ve been searching for a partner that would allow us to grow more strongly in the SAP area for the benefit of our customers. With valantic we’ve now found this partner that supports our growth strategy. We’ve already met many new colleagues at valantic who have long years’ experience in supporting large and complex SAP projects. Together with these colleagues, we will advance and continue our success story in the area of SAP services,” emphasizes proTask Managing Director Jens Rentsch.
