Düsseldorf, 8 November 2013
Munich-based planfocus® software GmbH has been presented with the Deloitte Technology Fast 50 Award and is thus recognized as one of the most rapidly growing technology companies in Germany. The ranking is based on the percentage of sales growth over the past five years (2008-2012). During this period, planfocus achieved a growth of 273.4 per cent, coming in at 29th on the list. This growth in sales is due to the market success of the cash cycle management solutions developed by planfocus.
planfocus® CPTO ® software solution is a modular suite aimed at optimizing cash cycle management processes for banks, cash-in-transit companies and retail chains. The solution enables precise cash planning which, in turn, leads to substantial cost savings. Thanks to its comprehensive range of functions, the CPTO® software solution can map the entire process chain, from cash disposition planning to coordinating transport routes and tracking cash.
Dr Joachim Walser, Managing Director of planfocus, welcomed the company’s ranking among the Fast 50: “Together with our highly qualified and focused team, we have been able to position ourselves in the market as an international technology leader for optimizing cash logistics processes.” Andreas Ulrich, Managing Director and co-founder, added: “Sustainable growth is a key factor for software companies in the B2B market: it is the only way of offering optimum technology solutions that appeal to the market in the long run.”
“IT and internet companies have done particularly well this year,” said Dr Andreas Gentner, Partner and Head of Technology, Media & Communications (TMT) at Deloitte. “This has a lot to do with the increased trend towards digital mobility and shows that the German IT industry is producing impressive drivers of innovation. B2B products have taken center stage with a special focus on infrastructural and IT-security solutions.”
