Rhenus Office Systems, the specialist for document and information logistics, is continuing to strengthen its operations and acquired all the shares in IOS Informations- und Organisations-Systeme GmbH on 1 September. This acquisition also includes a 51 percent stake in the IOS subsidiary SYNIOS Document & Workflow Management GmbH. The resulting gain in expertise and market presence in the health care and public sectors will enable customers to obtain complex and well-integrated complete solutions for physical and digital data flows from one source.

Rhenus Office System Acquires IOS & SYNIOS

The strategic decision to acquire IOS and SYNIOS is a response to customers’ demands for a stronger all-round digital approach. In addition to managing physical and digitized documents, the administration and use of data originally created in digital form is playing an increasingly important role in the work of Rhenus Office Systems. Jens Kumbrink, a member of the management team at Rhenus Office Systems, explains the reason for the acquisition. “As a result of the takeover of IOS and our majority stake in SYNIOS, we’re gaining experienced employees and new IT solutions, which will enable us to cope with hybrid data flows and large volumes of data.”

This new acquisition of successful specialists provides long-term impetus to Rhenus’ forward-looking market orientation. The need to continually develop is particularly the result of the current general conditions in the digital world, legal requirements, hybrid media disruptions and inefficient document and information processes. IOS and SYNIOS, which are pioneers of digital transformation, have been focusing on these issues for a long time in their solutions for the health care industry and the public sector.

As a service-oriented provider, Rhenus Office Systems will in future continue to uphold its digital responsibility in order to support its customers as an innovative driving force.
