Innsbruck, Austria, January 25, 2013 – terna, a business software specialist, met with shareholders of OPUS Solution AG, based in Root, Switzerland, to complete the acquisition of 100 per cent shares.
The well-known Swiss provider of business software applications based on Microsoft Dynamics AX generated a turnover of CHF 4.3 million in 2012 and has consistently recorded positive earnings for many years. With 26 employees, OPUS supports over 150 mid-sized companies and maintains long-standing partnerships with Microsoft Dynamics partners in Switzerland. OPUS has two main areas of focus: customers with project-related business dealings and the entire human resources management and payroll accounting sector using the certified in-house solution ‘Payroll Swiss for Dynamics AX’.

“We are significantly strengthening our presence on the Swiss ERP market by acquiring Opus. We also want to successively transfer OPUS’ expertise from the professional services environment to locations in Austria and Germany,” says CEO of the terna Group Christian Kranebitter regarding his motivation for the takeover. “In addition to being directly involved in projects, we will also continue to maintain the good relationships that OPUS has with Swiss Dynamics AX partners and develop channel business internationally. The experienced software development employees at OPUS AG build the ideal foundation for achieving these goals,” continues Kranebitter.
“This acquisition is a major step in the history of OPUS Solution AG,” says Isabelle Geissmann, current co-owner and head of marketing and sales at OPUS Solution AG. “Strengthening the market position in national and international competition allows customers, partners and employees to benefit from long-term prospects.”
