The acquisition expands VINCI Energies’ Axians brand offering in the sector of software solutions. With a high market share in national and cantonal roads in Switzerland, müllerchur is the market leader in software for the management and administration of roads, tunnels, bridges and waterways. In Germany and Austria too; federal states and administrative districts already use the company’s software solutions.
The company will become part of Axians, the VINCI Energies brand for information and communication technology (ICT). It will be integrated into the Business Area “Public Software”, which has more than 5,000 customers with software and services for public administration in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
Burim Mirakaj, COO VINCI Energies ICT Germany & Switzerland, and Jacques Diaz, CEO Axians Germany, said of the acquisition: “müllerchur fits perfectly with VINCI Energies’ growth strategy. Highly specialised and market-leading solutions effectively support the digital transformation of building yards and maintenance depots and other transport infrastructure operators”.
Markus Wieser, CEO of müllerchur, added: “I am very pleased that we are now a member of the VINCI Energies Group. The decentralised, cross-border strategy, which is also based on cooperation within the Group, is a perfect fit for us. Under the strong Axians brand, we will give our employees and products a new home, maintain continuity in our services and create additional value for our customers”.
Urs Röthlisberger, Director of Axians’ Business Area “Public Software”, explains the strategic direction of the integration: “There are already several mutual customers in Germany, Switzerland and Austria who use Axians Infoma products and müllerchur’s software solutions. The joint growth potential in these three countries is also immense as customers will now benefit from integrated interfaces between our financial and infrastructure management solutions”.
With this acquisition, VINCI Energies is strengthening its leading market position in software and services for public administrations and transport infrastructures. The müllerchur software products FAMC (infrastructure management), Xamos (mobile application for FAMC) and FMS (fleet management) are used by customers in the fields of city and district administration, building yards and maintenance depots, utilities and waste management, but also water utilities, airports and quarries.
