K-Businesscom becomes CANCOM Austria: Uniform appearance for CANCOM in the DACH region
- Uniform market presence is an important step in the operational merger of the two companies
- CANCOM now also operating under its own name in Romania and the Czech Republic for the first time
CANCOM, a leading hybrid IT service provider, has been even more present in the DACH region as well as in Romania and the Czech Republic since the beginning of the year. Austria's leading ICT solution and service provider and digitalization partner K-Businesscom (formerly Kapsch BusinessCom) became part of the CANCOM Group in June 2023. Since the turn of the year, the company and its subsidiaries have been operating under the CANCOM brand in Austria, Romania and the Czech Republic. With the uniform brand identity, CANCOM is strengthening its own positioning and the presence of the brand with a focus on DACH customers.
The CANCOM Group grew sustainably in 2023 - to more than 5,600 employees at around 80 locations in the DACH region and beyond. The acquisition of the Austrian ICT solution and service provider K-Businesscom in June 2023 - the largest takeover in the company's history to date - was a key factor in this growth. With the turn of the year, the scope and breadth of the CANCOM brand has now also been expanded, as the company is now also operating under the CANCOM brand for the first time in the Romanian and Czech markets - after Switzerland, where K-Businesscom was already renamed in October. CANCOM has been represented on the Austrian market since 1994 with CANCOM a+d IT solutions GmbH. The competencies and market access of the former K-Businesscom will strengthen and expand CANCOM's presence there.
The change of name from K-Businesscom to CANCOM is the next logical step in the course of the operational merger. At the same time, the change of name underlines the joint growth in the DACH region. "The merger has brought together two companies whose values, culture and core competencies harmonize perfectly. We are a team that pulls together. Our customers receive cross-border solutions and services from a single source - and we want to make this visible both internally and externally under one brand. Our common purpose 'We transform for the better' is our guiding principle," says Rüdiger Rath, CEO of CANCOM.
DACH customers benefit from the bundled product and service portfolios of both companies, but also from new synergies through complementary additions, such as in the areas of AI, digital solutions & software development.
With a broad workplace solutions portfolio, CANCOM a+d IT solutions GmbH in Austria offers holistic solutions with device lifecycle management and employee choice programs for end devices from a wide range of manufacturers. The former K-Businesscom, now CANCOM Austria, brought extensive capabilities in the areas of Intelligent Networks, Data and IoT to the CANCOM Group portfolio, in addition to existing joint strengths in the business areas of Public Cloud, Managed Services and Security. CANCOM Austria's range of IT solutions is therefore very similar to CANCOM's portfolio in Germany and includes a holistic offering consisting of consulting, implementation, services and the operation of IT systems.
CANCOM Austria also develops its own software solutions and platforms for innovative business models. Thanks to its Kapsch roots, CANCOM in Austria combines 130 years of innovative strength with many years of experience as a market leader for network, data center, security, collaboration and managed services.
