Strengthening the organisation:
ALSO accelerates growth of the Solutions division
The Working Place, the Gaming Place, IT infrastructure at home and IT infrastructure at companies - each of these four fields offers enormous growth opportunities for the IT industry. Last year's successful increase in turnover in the Solutions sector impressively demonstrates the potential of these areas. In order to consistently exploit the existing opportunities and to further accelerate growth, the know-how available in the company in the various product categories will be focused on these four topics.
For SMBs in particular, ALSO is a valuable partner, providing flexible, tailor-made, and needs-based support from concept to planning of IT architectures, proof of concept, presentation and implementation, including comprehensive project management. One focal point is the development of solutions for verticals, as already successfully developed in the area of education and tackled for other fields. New IoT products are also being continuously developed and marketed. Across all applications and solutions, the attention is on resource-saving products and concepts as well as GDPR-compliant processes that protect the privacy rights of all customers and ensure the highest possible level of security.
Simone Blome-Schwitzki, Senior Vice President Solutions of ALSO Holding AG (SIX: ALSN): "Thanks to the comprehensive ALSO ecosystem, we not only have an excellent overview of the market, but also the expert knowledge and the necessary scaling options to further increase results in this profitable business segment with a powerful sales organisation."
