- Establishment of a data centre in Switzerland supports the path to active internationalisation
Frankfurt/M. and Marburg, Germany, 16 December 2019 – weclapp SE, a subsidiary of 3U HOLDING AG (ISIN: DE0005167902), is making further progress along the path of internationalisation and is creating the basis for data storage in Switzerland for Swiss customers. Contracts to set up a data center with an operator in Zurich have now been signed.
Experience has shown that Swiss companies expect their data to be hosted in their own country. By extending the weclapp platform with a further data center in Switzerland, customers can now also select Zurich alongside Frankfurt for the storage of their company data. Like the weclapp platform itself, the new infrastructure is scalable and can be flexibly adapted to a growing number of users. Customers in the European Union will continue to have full access to the cloud capacities in Frankfurt, Germany.
Internationalisation, which has already begun, will be achieved by successively transferring the online marketing concept, which is being successfully employed in Germany, to selected European markets. The next steps will be taken into countries such as Austria, France, Great Britain, Italy, Spain, Poland and the Netherlands. In addition to online marketing, weclapp will build up an active network of partner companies in these countries, as is customary in the industry.
“The growth story of weclapp continues,” says Ertan Özdil, CEO of weclapp SE. “Following the successful development in Germany, we will also market the strengths of our platform internationally as planned. weclapp was developed from the outset for worldwide use and is one of the most attractive ERP systems for medium-sized companies in terms of technology and price. There are no inherent barriers to growth. We are now taking the next logical step on our road to market leadership.”
