Roxit and Green Valley join forces

Software suppliers Roxit and Green Valley will work together in a new group. The software developers for municipalities and governments are merging to offer a bigger supply of computerization of governments together. They keep their own focus on own products. Claims investor Main Capital, owner of Roxit.

Rob van Tiel, Director Business Development of Roxit, thinks it is a logics step to join forces: ‘For Roxit, as supplier of software for licensing and maintenance, a business system is crucial. A combination of a business system with web counter and front office is nowadays a must.’ He emphasizes that Roxit does not have that at this moment.

Rob Stekener, Managing Director of Roxit explains both companies will act together in the market, but remain independent. ‘Where it is needed, both companies will work together and offer a combined portfolio to customer when they want that. We can strengthen each other by  examining our efficiency and quality of our products and services in order to further improve it. But in this process we want the companies to keep their own focus. Especially keep doing what they are good at and serve the customers optimally.’

Main Capital
Main Capital is a Private Equity investor with an exclusive focus on the software sector in the Benelux and Germany. At the beginning of July 2015, it bought the Roxit Group. Because of this take-over the management of Roxit got a small minority stake. ‘Main Capital invests additional capital in the Roxit Group in order to finance this take-over. The first step of the intended (take-over)strategy of Roxit Group was made’, says Charly Zwemstra, Managing Partner at Main Capital.

Roxit produces and supplies software, and is service provider of the information systems of the government in terms of construction and living, environment, soil, water and spatial planning. They say they deliver software and services for the information systems of 80 percent of the Dutch governments. It also delivers products and services in the area of inspection and environment.

Clients come from the public sector and consist of environment inspections, provinces, municipalities, environment services and water authorities. The company works with about hundred professionals from offices in Arnhem, Zoetermeer and Zwolle.

Green Valley
Green Valley from Delft develops software for knowledge management which is shared via intranet for example. It delivers ICT-solutions to governments, institutions like housing associations and companies. It has an own development- and implementation department and offers products for front-office (website/cms, electronic counter and customer contact system) and for mid-office (business system and dms/rma). Green Valley employs 65 people.
