Telematics market leader TachoEASY acquires Software specialist Zauner

Frankfurt, 18 September 2017. Following the acquisition of the entire share capital of Softwarebüro Zauner GmbH & Co. KG, Zauner now operates as 100% subsidiary of TachoEASY AG as of August, 2017. This takeover leaves both companies with a strengthened combined position within the international competitive landscape.

While the Zauner modular fleet management system and its installed base of 35,000 clients ranks among the leading products within the industry, TachoEASY stands out through extensive telematics expertise and its strategic partnership with TÜV SÜD.

Pooling the technological expertise of both providers will lead to synergies. ‘The product offerings of both firms complement each other perfectly. “The combination of our respective expertise will result in substantial benefits to our customers in terms of our product portfolio, while strengthening our competitive positioning in an increasingly global market place.” says TachoEASY chairman of the board, Graf von Bentzel.

ACXIT Capital Partners served as exclusive M&A advisor to TachoEASY throughout the entire process.
