EcoIntense records its strongest result yet
March 14, 2018
EcoIntense GmbH continues to grow strongly. Last year, the software specialist won more than 100 new customers, who now use its product EcoWebDesk for health and safety, environmental management, and sustainability. The Berlin-based company has increased its sales by 50 percent in the past year and is set to continue its international expansion.
"Record demand for our software shows that EcoWebDesk has become the established standard for all tasks related to health, safety, and environment (HSE)," says Markus Becker, CEO of EcoIntense. Since EcoWebDesk integrates smoothly with a company's existing structures and processes, the web-based software is ideal for both SMEs and large corporations. EcoWebDesk is now used by more than 500 companies. New customers in 2017 included the airline Luxair, the office and stationery company Pelikan, and the international trade and services company BayWa AG.
Growth fuelled by investors, NordSafety acquisition
One Peak Partners and Morgan Stanley Expansion Capital recently joined EcoIntense as new shareholders. In May 2017, they invested 22 million euros in the company, further strengthening its growth trajectory.
"EcoIntense will be the leading European provider of software that optimizes HSE processes and sustainability reporting," says Markus Becker. An important milestone in this journey was the acquisition of Finnish software company NordSafety in November 2017. With its newly acquired expertise, EcoIntense has expanded its product portfolio with innovative app solutions. .
The road to market leadership in Europe
The EcoIntense team has also experienced rapid growth. The company currently employs over 120 people — 50 percent more than last year. The management team has been expanded with two newly created roles. In November 2017, Philipp E. Lederer joined as CFO, and Mark Knill as CSO. Along with the rest of the management team, they are responsible for driving the internationalization of the company.
To cement its position as the future leader of the European market, EcoIntense recently opened a new office in Vienna, Austria. In Switzerland, meanwhile, the company has recently collaborated with geelhaarconsulting GmbH and Neosys AG. EcoIntense will continue to develop its network of expert partners, giving customers access to specialist advice alongside the core software product.
