KUMAVISION and M Assist deepen cooperation

KUMAVISION, industry software specialist for the healthcare market and medical technology, is laying the groundwork for continuing on its growth path. In order to better serve the increasing demand in the healthcare market, the company is expanding its long-term partnership with the consulting company M Assist GmbH, which specializes in the prescription business. Both companies bundle their advisory capacities and skills for the market segment of other service providers. The close cooperation is further underlined with the entry of KUMAVISION as a partner in M ​​Assist with a strategic participation. In the future, M Assist will take over control for the introduction of the branch software in this market segment for KUMAVISION customers. In addition to product development, KUMAVISION continues to focus on market development in the industry as well as advice in the fields of finance, supply chain management and technology.

“We have developed into the market leader in the healthcare market in the past 20 years and continue to expect high market demand. The expansion of the cooperation with M Assist enables us to better serve the rapidly increasing inquiries from new and existing customers and to take advantage of the considerable growth opportunities associated with it, ”explains Kay von Wilcken, CEO of KUMAVISION AG.

With this, KUMAVISION and M Assist raise the project-based collaboration that has existed for many years to a long-term level. The takeover of a strategic stake in M ​​Assist by KUMAVISION underlines the close, long-term cooperation between the two companies. M Assist continues to operate independently as a company. The cooperation also extends to the further development of the implementation methodology. "Both on the product side and during the implementation itself, we will further simplify the introduction of our industry software so that customers can quickly work productively with our solutions."

Optimal use of resources

The division of tasks within the cooperation is clearly regulated. M Assist will implement the industry software for KUMAVISION customers and support them in the introductory phase. “As a specialist for the recipe business, M Assist has extensive industry expertise and, as a top implementation partner, has many years of experience with our industry software. In addition, M Assist is a valuable sparring partner for us in the further development of our industry software, ”says von Wilcken, KUMAVISION focuses on product development, market development and development as well as on the care of existing customers in day-to-day business. "The new constellation also enables us to serve our customers and interested parties from the medical technology sector in a more focused manner," added Markus Birk, CEO of KUMAVISION AG. M Assist also opens up synergy effects: “We are looking forward to intensifying the cooperation. As a leading Microsoft partner, KUMAVISION stands for reliability and future security and thus shares the same philosophy as we do, ”explains Michael Messner, Managing Partner of M Assist GmbH.

Clear commitment to the industry

The cooperation sees KUMAVISION as optimally positioned to continue the growth course in the healthcare market. "The cooperation enables us to further expand our market leadership and gain additional market share through additional resources," Birk describes the objective for the coming years. This applies not only to the business area of ​​other service providers, but explicitly to the entire industry. Because even in medical technology, KUMAVISION is experiencing a rapidly growing demand for ERP industry solutions. KUMAVISION will continue to take care of this target group with manufacturers and dealers entirely independently. "Whether MDR, EUDAMED or ISO 13485: normative changes pose numerous challenges for the industry. We already offer the functionally leading solution that optimally supports companies in complying with regulatory requirements, ”adds Birk.

Comprehensive investments in the future

KUMAVISION is also investing heavily in the further development of ERP industry solutions for the healthcare market and medical technology. Both the budget for research and development and the number of employees were increased significantly in this area. The focus is on the possibilities offered by the new technology platform Microsoft Dynamics 365 Company opened. "The globally unique offer combines all business applications such as ERP software, CRM, business analytics, mobile apps, office and communication as well as Internet of Things (IoT) and artificial intelligence (AI) on one platform. We enable our customers to actively shape the digital transformation, ”emphasizes Birk. The time-saving automation of business processes, the provision of key figures in real time, and networking with customers, products and business partners promise greater transparency and efficiency. At the same time, the technology platform gives customers the opportunity to react flexibly to new requirements in a rapidly changing market environment.
