Austrian Post Acquires 51% of Scanpoint EuropeTransaction opens up new approaches to postal service
Post positions itself in the field of document digitalisation
The expansion-oriented strategy of Austrian Post will also continue in the year 2007. At the end of January, Austrian Post acquired a 51% shareholding in Scanpoint Europe.
The core business of Scanpoint Europe, headquartered in Waldbronn, Germany, is the secure, data protected digitalisation of documents. This acquisition enables Austrian Post to offer its large customers a new type of service, namely the electronic delivery of personal incoming mail. The digitalised information is then made available to the recipient in digital form, either on some form of storage media, via email or as a web archive file.
The acquisition will enable both firms to exploit synergies: the logistic know-how of Austrian Post combined with the digitalisation expertise of Scanpoint Europe will make it possible to simplify business processes.
