Visma Consulting has acquired Solidabis Solutions Oy, which is one of the fastest-growing companies providing software development services in Finland. Solidabis offers software development, user experience design and process development services with around 80 employees. Last year, Tivi’s study ranked Solidabis 26th in fastest-growing Finnish IT companies.
Last week, we revealed that Visma Consulting and the Custom Solutions division will continue as a separate new company under the ownership of the capital investor CVC. As a result of this, we will become one of the largest IT consulting houses in the Nordic countries. Solidabis Solutions Oy will also transfer over to the new company following the completion of the transaction.
Both we and Solidabis already have a strong position in software development services, and together we can provide services even more extensively than before. Especially in user experience design and process development and automation, Solidabis will provide us with cutting-edge competence.
“I am very happy that Solidabis will join the new company focused on the digital transformation. We have been impressed with how fast they have grown and how high the quality of the solutions that they provide to a large number of Finnish customers has been. We have already previously cooperated, and we know how much competence the company has to offer. We also know that the companies have a very similar culture, which makes future cooperation between us easier,” says Petri Lillberg, Managing Director of Visma Consulting Oy.
“Solidabis has done a remarkable job in succeeding as an independent company, but we felt that now was the right time to join a bigger organisation. As part of a new company offering digital IT services, we are able to provide our customers with services making use of a clearly more extensive competence background and to ensure that we have what we need to achieve strong growth. For the employees, this opens up wonderful opportunities for strengthening our competence even further,” says Petteri Puhakka, CEO of Solidabis Solutions Oy.
Solidabis Solutions Oy will continue as an independent part of the new company, and the transaction will have no effect on the company’s personnel or customers.
