Achieving More Together 

How we achieved €320 MM in revenue / 1300 employees through organic growth and Mergers & Acquisitions. And why we will continue to outpace market growth.

Early in the evolution of TIMETOACT GROUP we discovered the power of synergy. After experiencing firsthand how 1+1 can make 3, we made Buy and Build an integral part of our growth strategy. Together we create Win-Win-Win situations for our customers, employees, and founders/shareholders. 

The IT Services Market Consolidation Will Accelerate

The IT services industry is still young, and the market is widely dispersed. In Germany alone, the IT industry comprises more than 11,000 companies with 10-50 employees, 3300 companies with 50-250 employees and only 700 companies with more than 250 employees and revenue of over €50 MM revenue (Federal Statistical Office of Germany). In other countries, the market is similarly dispersed. You do not need to be a historian to safely predict that the IT services industry is ripe for a long-lasting and ever accelerating market consolidation. 

What are the driving forces for the market consolidation?

Customers

Customers want to reduce complexity in their supply chains and prefer capable partners that provide integrated digital consulting and IT services across multiple disciplines.

Employees

Larger companies are winning the War for Talents not only offer better career opportunities and fringe benefits but also accelerated dynamic.

Vendors

IT vendors such as Atlassian, Google and Microsoft have a strong bias towards larger partners with more marketing, delivery, and sales power.

Regulation

Customers, employees, governments and partners burden us with increasing numbers of requirements and regulations for business continuity, data protection, and environmental, social and governance issues.

What Makes Us Special?

Our Umbrella- & Multi-Brand Strategy allows us to achieve economies of scale and avoid diseconomies of scale. We combine the advantages of specialized IT companies with the benefits of large and integrated IT consulting and service companies.

We Joined TIMETOACT GROUP:

We joined TIMETOACT GROUP and merged with catworkx to achieve economies of scale and to focus on our core competencies. Together we can serve our customers better and, e.g. provide ample integration with Microsoft and SAP. We can leverage TIMETOACT GROUPs and catworkx organizational structures and utilize their professional internal processes and tooling. The selection of TIMETOACT GROUP as strategic partner was chosen carefully over a long term. We are super satisfied with the results, are now going for the peak together.

Seizing opportunities, shaping the future: We at Walldorf Consulting GmbH have found our trusted partner in driving growth through strategic transformations and acquisitions. After just a few months, we are already serving customers together with other TIMETOACT GROUP companies and generating new opportunities in both directions.

Hanno HofmannManaging Director, Walldorf Consulting GmbH(Joined TIMETOACT GROUP in 2023)

In the spring of 2022, as a small IT company, we were looking for a strong partner for the future. The contact with TIMETOACT was very friendly right from the start, both on a personal and on a professional level. The M&A process was highly professional and was completed in just a few months. Looking back and after the successful integration of OpenAdvice into TIMETOACT, we can say that our expectations have been fully met. The central services such as recruiting, finance and marketing relieve us of day-to-day business, and we can concentrate even better on our projects. We would choose to work with TIMETOACT again at any time.

Markus FürstHead of Monitoring & Service Assurance Business Unit, TIMETOACT(Joined TIMETOACT GROUP in 2022 as Managing Director of openAdvice GmbH)

After many years of steady success, our development as an Atlassian Enterprise Platinum Solution Partner reached a natural limit, especially in the area of upper to mid-sized companies and corporations. We were no longer able to adequately serve our target customers and their increased requirements, due to our size. By merging and reinvesting in TIMETOACT GROUP, we have joined a circle of experienced leaders. The potential for cross-selling and other huge synergy effects alone allows us to lift our company to a completely new level. And at the same time, we're offering future catworkx leaders a whole new perspective.

Michael LüerManaging Director catworkx GmbH (Germany) and CEO of the catworkx Group(Joined TIMETOACT GROUP in 2022)

When you are in your 50s and have spent the last 20-30 years building a successful IT company, you should ask yourself in good time how things will continue on a social level. For us at PKS, this topic came up in 2021. We wanted a future-proof solution for our employees, to actively involve ourselves in the generational transition, and to take the PKS brand to a new level. We found what we were looking for at TIMETOACT GROUP: here we found down-to-earth managers and experienced owners who not only buy and fully integrate companies, but also value individuality and flexibility. So today we are part of the GROUP, benefit from synergy effects and can continue to dive deep into the topic closest to our hearts: software analysis and legacy modernization for IBM platforms.

After 20 years of "going it alone", IPG has been benefiting from the power and charisma of TIMETOACT GROUP since 2021. Together, we create even more value and advantages for our customers. As an entrepreneur and co-owner of IPG, I am convinced, now more than ever, that this was the right step. Furthermore, as a shareholder of TIMETOACT GROUP I now participate in the success of the entire GROUP of companies and I feel just as committed to the development of TIMETOACT GROUP as I do to IPG, which I had previously built up over 20 years, and which continues to operate independently in its business segment.

After it became clear that our two GIS founders, having shaped our company for almost 25 years, would soon be unavailable or retiring, we decided that GIS should join a larger group of companies. TIMETOACT GROUP impressed us with its multi-brand-strategy, which allowed us to keep our entrepreneurial spirit while connecting with like-minded colleagues on all levels. After more than five years as part of TIMETOACT GROUP, a lot has changed.We merged with our sister company, novaCapta, on our own initiative to form one of the leading Microsoft partners in the German-speaking region. Today, TIMETOACT GROUP still stands for cordial relationship between all employees, mutual respect, personal development opportunities for every colleague, growth prospects for the topics that we care about and the strong entrepreneurial drive to evolve on behalf of our customers.

What convinced me was the idea of "achieving more together" combined with the freedom to continue developing novaCapta independently. Without TIMETOACT GROUP, we would not have succeeded in growing to become one of the largest dedicated Microsoft partners, with over 250 employees.

Eric ChallManaging Director, novaCapta GmbH(Joined TIMETOACT GROUP in 2013, 6 add-On acquisitions from 2010-2021)

The successful sale of the company is the result of exceptional collaboration. Together we proved that teamwork, strategic vision, and a strong corporate culture pave the way to success. We were able to stay as we are and grow where we needed to. We continue to look forward to a promising future in which we will explore new horizons together and continue our success story.
