PKE steps up for growth in Germany

Takeover of Ostertag DeTeWe’s business representation of NEC in Germany provides important synergies and enables PKE to guide NEC customers in their digital transformation to the smart hybrid workplace of the future

Vienna, 18 November 2021 – With the takeover of the business representation of NEC in Germany from Ostertag DeTeWe GmbH as per November 1st, 2021, PKE drives synergies and gears up to further seize the growing opportunities in the German market for Enterprise Communications solutions and services.

All of Ostertag’s NEC related project, service and support staff are now employed by PKE, while the sales and service obligations with respect to NEC’s Enterprise Communications solutions in Germany - previously with Ostertag – have been transferred to PKE Deutschland GmbH effective 1st of November 2021.

With 12 branch offices across the country PKE already has a significant presence in Germany and the acquisition of Ostertag’s NEC business is a logical next step for PKE to grow further in this large and growing market. Preserving the knowledge and skills available with the German-based staff, while safeguarding previously made customer investments, enables PKE to bring the extended customer base to the next level of development. The acquisition of Ostertag leads to important synergy benefits, in which the specialist knowledge of NEC platforms and vertical market sectors such as Government, Healthcare and Hotel industry are important strategic values.

Matthias Koppensteiner, Managing Director at PKE Holding AG, responsible for the segment Business Communications, states: “The incorporation of Ostertag’s NEC activities alongside its customer base and market reach into our company is a very important expansion of our business. It demonstrates once again our commitment to the German market and to the NEC portfolio. PKE is a longstanding, well-respected and very experienced NEC Business Partner and has been providing new solutions, installations and service to business customers of NEC in Austria, Switzerland and Germany for many years. We can therefore immediately continue to provide all services to Ostertag’s customer base as well as the supply of new NEC solutions and future migrations of existing installations to incorporate the latest product and market developments.”

"NEC is ideally suited to support organizations in the digital transformation that characterizes the contemporary market and we strongly believe in the direction it is taking with its portfolio. It enables us to provide our customers with the smart hybrid workplace of the future and deliver this dynamically at the customer’s preferred pace and scope”, Koppensteiner concludes.

 Bert Plasman, Vice President of Channel Sales at NEC Enterprise Solutions, adds: “We at NEC are very pleased PKE is taking this next step. PKE has been with us since its founding and is one of our most expert, dedicated and award-winning partners. The knowledge and experience of PKE with regard to our portfolio are invaluable, as well as their insights and market position in important industry sectors like Healthcare, Hospitality and Government. Expertise, drive and reliability are common core values of our organizations and that is reflected in our partnership, which we expect to continue for many years to come".

All PKE employees in Service & Support are fully certified by NEC to deliver the highest levels of service and support in planning, installing and maintaining the most advanced systems and solutions. New and existing enterprise customers throughout Germany can rely on high-quality and future-proof support for their on-premises, cloud or hybrid business communication solutions.
