Lebring, Austria, September 10, 2018

Intact GmbH – a leading provider of software solutions for audit, certification, and standards management – has found a strong partner in a consortium of investors lead by IMCap GmbH. The new shareholder acquires a majority stake in the Austrian technology company and provides growth capital as part of the transaction. The successful management team lead by CEO Thomas Lorber will continue to manage the company. The purchase price and other terms of the transaction are not disclosed.

Intact will continue to focus on the development and marketing of the SaaS solution ECERT for the audit and certification market. ECERT is the only software solution in the market that digitizes the entire audit and certification process. As a specialized ERP system for audit and certification management, ECERT covers the entire value chain of certification bodies – from audit planning and auditing to the completed certification. It is also ideally suited for the management of internal audits and standards. Thanks to its configurability, the ECERT standard platform meets the audit and certification requirements of most industries, provides a stable and secure environment to run customers’ core processes, and allows customers to significantly increase efficiency, therefore, reducing costs. Intact’s employees’ deep knowledge and expertise in process optimization for the audit and certification industry contribute strongly to their customers’ success.

“Today, only very few companies provide specialized software solutions for the digitization of processes in the growing certification industry”, explains Rolf Menne, Operating Partner at IMCap. “The ECERT SaaS software platform allows customers to digitize the complete audit and certification value chain and workflow already today. This facilitates a way more efficient use of resources and significantly reduces costs for Intact’s customers. We see this as a clear strength of Intact and believe that Intact is in a very strong position in this growing market”.

“IMCap is a very proficient partner who brings valuable know-how to our company in addition to capital”, says Intact’s CEO Thomas Lorber. “This will enable us to grow faster and further expand our leading market position. Our customers will greatly benefit from this, which is always our focus.”

Intact was advised by i5invest during this transaction.
