Austrian Post Acquires Remaining 49% of Scanpoint EuropeSpecialist for document digitalisation is now a 100% Group subsidiary
Following its acquisition of a 51% shareholding in Scanpoint Europe Holding GmbH in January of 2007, Austrian Post has purchased the remaining 49%stake, effective retroactively in economic terms to January 1, 2008.
The core business of the Scanpoint Group is the data protected digitalisation of documents (i.e. files, policies, response collection, incoming mail, etc.), as well as the delivery of business-relevant information within the context of a customer’s in-house workflow. This acquisition enables Austrian Post to expand its portfolio of services by incorporating key stages of the document life cycle, for example, the intelligent digitalisation and classification of incoming mail directly in the letter mail sorting centres, and the electronic delivery of this mail to the responsible employees using some form of storage media, email or as a web archive file.
Scanpoint Europe Holding GmbH
Scanpoint Europe Holding does business in Germany, Austria and Central Europe, and operates production facilities in Germany, Austria and Slovakia. Its reference customers include prominent customers in the business, industrial and commercial sectors, as well as the service sector, municipal authorities and public contractors.
