Visma has grown rapidly in the Dutch market with many acquisitions over the last few years, now exceeding €350 million in revenue and employing more than 2 000 people in this highly strategic region. By acquiring Synaxion, Visma continues its advancement in the Dutch eGov market, strengthening its position in the European market. 

 

“We are very excited about Synaxion joining the Visma family. Synaxion has a portfolio of solutions for BI and dashboarding that fits very well with our current products and services. Especially in the (semi-) governmental areas like Spatial Planning, Permits and Code Enforcement, Public Space, Health and Social welfare, and Education, we will strengthen our position. We, therefore, believe that Visma customers could benefit a lot from the Business Intelligence solutions Synaxion will be able to provide,” says Carsten Boje Møller, Division Director of Visma Custom Solutions.

 

"We look forward to joining forces with Visma. By approaching the (semi) public sector market together, we can achieve our ambitions even better. Our ambition is to bring the worlds of e-Government and Business Intelligence & Data Science together even more. We are convinced that this step will further strengthen our position in the market as joining forces with Visma will expand the possibilities of both our colleagues and customers.” says Pim van Stiphout, Managing Director of Synaxion.

 

Synaxion will continue its business activities under its current name. As part of the Visma family, Synaxion will operate closely together with Visma Roxit, Visma Circle, Visma Connect, Khonraad, and iASSET but will collaborate also with other Visma companies like Visma Raet. Jointly they will strengthen Visma’s presence in the Netherlands within the e-government space.
