In Continental Europe, SMEs account for nearly 64% of business activity1. In the DACH region (i.e. German speaking Europe) for example, the IT market was estimated to be 76 Billion Euros in 20132. A majority of companies in the region are operating IT/ERP systems that were implemented more than 10 years ago. SME’s among these companies specifically, have accumulated needs to invest in a new integrated IT/ERP solution within the next 2 years. “RheinBrücke intends to be a leader in this relatively untapped segment of non-native English speaking regions by offering customers on site local consultants with extensive domain, cultural and local language knowledge, supported by the company’s state of the art delivery centers in Koln, Germany and now in Chennai, India”, said Mr. Vetri Selvan, Managing Partner of RheinBrücke.

“SME’s are the growth engine of every economy. As Europe recovers from an economic crisis, SMEs on the continent are beginning to raise their IT spending as they look to cut costs and focus on a digital future. We see a demand gap here that RheinBrücke intends to service”, said Dr. JoergPirron, Executive Board Member of RheinBrücke.
