Achieving customer happiness in the German construction market

Oliver says: “During my career in IT companies such as Axians Infoma, Axians Deutschland and most recently the Wilken Software Group, which now stretches back decades, I repeatedly came into contact with the 4PS founders. The idea about bringing 4PS to Germany was born many years ago. Now it is coming to fruition and we can’t wait to introduce 4PS in the German construction market and continue its international success story: achieve customer happiness by using an outstanding product and getting support by an awesome team.”
Tobias adds: “With the focus on cloud-based, and especially Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) ERP solutions in different vertical markets in the last years, I am happy to offer a perfect opportunity for construction companies interested in digitising their processes and business. With our additional portals, apps, IoT solutions and more, all integrated with the comprehensive Microsoft platform, we are sure to meet market demands and help customers to become digital leaders in their segments. From a company perspective, we are in a unique situation. We can act with the flexibility of a fast-moving start-up, but we have the stability of the successful 4PS Group.”
