CompuGroup Medical Enters the French Laboratory Market

Koblenz, May 2nd, 2013: CompuGroup Medical entered into a legally binding contract with Neurone yesterday stipulating the takeover of its entire business operations. The company develops software for laboratories and creates a strong platform in the French market for CompuGroup Medical. The acquired customer base includes many leading laboratory chains and large single laboratories.

With a total revenue of 438,000.00 Euros in 2012, Neurone has a strong presence in the southern French market. The web-based laboratory system is distributed as Software as a Service (SaaS). “Laboratories in France need the most modern technology and a strong partner. Through our 1,500 laboratory customers worldwide, we understand the increased demands. We adapt IT to the changed situation and help save costs through efficient processes”, affirmed Frank Gotthardt, CEO of CompuGroup Medical AG.

CompuGroup Medical already counts 33% of physicians to its customers in France and has a market share of 19% in the field of EMR software for physicians. The networking of physicians and laboratories as well as laboratories and patients, also presents great opportunities in France. “With Neurone and our international experience in the laboratory business, we hold all the necessary requirements to fully tap into the high potential of the French market”, according to Mr. Gotthardt. With this step, CompuGroup Medical lays the foundation for the success of global laboratory solutions in the French market.

As a result of the market-related changes in the laboratory business, more and more laboratories are searching for reliable and financially strong partners to adapt IT to the branched processes thereby sustaining an efficient working environment.
