Total Specific Solutions acquires Gesinf Srl, the Italian software provider for public authorities and non-profit organizations

Nieuwegein/Rome, the Netherlands, 8 April 2022.

The software provider Gesinf Srl is the 4th company to join Total Specific Solutions (“TSS”) in Italy. Gesinf is a leading software company helping institutions in the public administration and non-profit organizations, including national sports federations, with solutions for their administrative and accounting needs. TSS Italy now consists of RTS, A.P. System, NEXTIP, and Gesinf.
Team Government is Gesinf’s ERP platform that helps public administrations with their integrated financial and economic accounting. The ERP solution manages a complex legislative decree so that the public organizations are in compliance. Gesinf’s new ERP platform, Corporate 2g, is used by most national sports federations, helping them comply with another complex legislative decree. Gesinf solutions provide cost accounting and reporting tools to make management decisions based on financial and economic data and supply the transparent information required by regulations.
Erwin Witte, General Manager at TSS: “We are pleased to welcome Gesinf to TSS. In almost 40 years, Claudio and Fabio Nicoletti, together with their team, managed to grow Gesinf into the leading software solution for Italian National Sports Federations and public authorities. They have created software solutions to help their clients navigate through new governmental rulings, which are quite complex. By solving the complexity in the software, they understand their customers’ needs, and their solutions not only fit the needs of the industry but also give added value.
I am looking forward to working with Andrea Carnevali, who will be the Managing Director leading the company into the next phase. Next to this, I am grateful that both Claudio and Fabio Nicoletti will continue to be involved in Gesinf to support this transition and the growth going forward.”
Claudio Nicoletti, former co-owner of Gesinf: “When your family has built a company, believed in its potential and the value for our clients, and nurtured it for 40 years, you don’t pass the baton to just any new owner. Our company offers valued solutions to the market that bring our clients added value. We maintain good relationships with our customers and have a solid understanding of the specific markets. So, when TSS contacted us with their ‘Software for Life’ policy, meaning that they hold companies forever and never sell them again, we knew we had found the right new owner. By joining TSS, we ensure that we will continue our company, serving our clients and providing a future for the employees. We now have access to the accumulated best practices from years of experience running vertical software companies, and we gain more than 4,000 new colleagues within TSS. Overall, this will bring us new insights and inspiration and energize us for the next phase of Gesinf.”
Andrea Carnevali, Managing Director of Gesinf: “I have been working at Gesinf for 25 years now. I know the clients and employees very well. They are part of my extended family, so I am excited to lead the company on its next leg of the journey as part of an independent business unit of TSS.”

TSS Deutschland Kick-off – Just do it

TSS Deutschland Kick-off

Treffen der Managementteams der TSS Deutschland vom 5.-6. Oktober in Metzingen

TSS Deutschland ist in den letzten Jahren auf 7 Unternehmen angewachsen. Es, war nun das erste Mal Gelegenheit zum persönlichen Kennenlernen über die digitale Welt hinaus.

Im Rahmen des Events hatten wir eine Fülle an interessanten Rednern. Jasper Bollen, General Manager für die DACH-Region, eröffnete das Event mit einem persönlichen Einblick, wie für die TSS das Kapitel Deutschland begann und welche Ziele bestehen. Ramon Zanders, unser Group CEO, sprach über sein Leben in der dynamischen Welt der TSS – als Geschäftsführer des Softwareentwicklers Yonder bis zum CEO von TSS. Unser M&A Manager Alexander Brendecke gab einen Überblick über die M&A Aktivitäten in der DACH Region.

Insbesondere für die in 2020 und 2021 hinzugestoßenen Unternehmen waren die eindrücklichen Berichte von Jens Buchloh, Gründer und Geschäftsführer von ergovia in Kiel, sowie von Maria Yankulina und Dennis Coort (prohandel) über die ersten Jahre als Teil der TSS inspirierend.

Zum Abschluss hielt unser Gastredner Bert Helbig einen motivierenden Vortrag zum Thema Customer Intimacy, einem der Kernwerte aller Unternehmen der TSS.

Ein besonderer Dank geht an unsere Organisatoren Andreas Nau, Friedhelm Seiler und die Kollegen von easySoft, die Ihre Räumlichkeiten in Metzingen als Tagungsort bereitgestellt und für ein exzellentes Rahmenprogramm gesorgt haben.

In den nächsten Jahren sollen weitere Unternehmen und Mitarbeitende zu TSS Deutschland hinzustoßen. So soll  das TSS Deutschland Event künftig einmal jährlich stattfinden, um das Netzwerk innerhalb der Gruppe zu stärken, denn auch wenn jedes Unternehmen für seine Kunden branchenspezifische Lösungen bereitstellt, können alle vom Best Practices Austausch profitieren.

Wenn Sie Eigentümer eines Branchensoftwareunternehmens sind und eine dauerhafte und nachhaltige Heimat für Ihr Unternehmen suchen, kontaktieren Sie uns gerne für ein erstes Gespräch.


3 Fragen an Andreas Nau, Geschäftsführer der easySoft – „Bildung ist der Schlüssel, der die Zukunft aufschließt“

Rund 750 Millionen Menschen weltweit können nach Angaben der Unesco nicht richtig lesen und schreiben. Bildung liegt Andreas Nau am Herzen. Im Kurzinterview erklärt er, wie sein Unternehmen aktiv gegen Analphabetismus kämpft und warum lebenslanges Lernen heute
so wichtig wie nie zuvor ist.

Jedes Jahr am 8. September erinnert die UNESCO am Welttag der Alphabetisierung daran, dass 750 Millionen Menschen nicht richtig lesen und schreiben können. Dabei ist Bildung die Grundlage für ein selbstbestimmtes Leben und wird mit der steigenden Informationsflut immer wichtiger.

Andreas Nau hat bis heute mit dem Lernen nie aufgehört. Der easySoft Geschäftsführer findet Bildung so wichtig, dass er alle seine Mitarbeiter zu zwei Fortbildungen pro Jahr verpflichtet. Warum lebenslange Bildung immer wertvoller wird und was Unternehmen von Apple und Festo lernen können, erklärt er im Kurzinterview.

Was bedeutet Bildung für dich persönlich?

Ich zitiere da gerne Nelson Mandela: „Education ist the most powerful weapon to change the world.“ Bildung ist der Grundstein für ein gutes Leben. Durch sie erhalten wir die Möglichkeit, unser Leben proaktiv zu gestalten: Wir können agieren statt reagieren.

Bildung geht immer mit einer Verhaltensänderung einher. Wenn ich etwas gelernt habe, dann kann ich Informationen anders einordnen und mit bisher unbezwingbaren Situationen plötzlich umgehen. Einfaches Beispiel: Wenn Sie jemanden mit dem Auto in die Stuttgarter Rush-Hour schicken, der noch nie in seinem Leben etwas von Verkehrsregeln gehört hat, dann wird die Fahrt vermutlich sehr kurz. Anders sieht es aus, wenn er zuvor eine Fahrschule besucht. Die macht zwar niemanden zum perfekten Autofahrer, aber die Grundlagen des Straßenverkehrs sind dann immerhin klar.

In meinem Leben spielt Bildung schon sehr lange eine Schlüsselrolle. Als Lehrer für Pflegeberufe war ich unmittelbar mit dem Thema in Berührung. Hier habe ich viele Erfahrungen gesammelt, die mir heute noch weiterhelfen. Ich möchte aber nie stehen bleiben. Deshalb lese ich im Jahr zwischen 30 und 50 Fachbücher und besuche mehrere Fortbildungen, mit denen ich mich in meinem Berufsumfeld weiterentwickle.

Was hat easySoft mit Alphabetisierung und Bildung zu tun?

Eines unserer größten und wichtigsten sozialen Projekte ist unsere Patenschule in Angola. Gemeinsam mit der Hilfsorganisation JAM unterstützen wir das „School-Feeding“. Alle Schulkinder erhalten täglich eine warme Mahlzeit – oftmals das einzige nahrhafte Essen, das sie am Tag zu sich nehmen.
Die Essensausgabe hat aber noch einen weiteren wichtigen Effekt: Die Kinder können sich besser auf den Unterricht konzentrieren. Dort lernen Sie rechnen und schreiben, aber auch die Grundlagen der Hygiene.

Bildung ist der Schlüssel, der den Kindern eine neue Zukunft aufschließt. Sie lernen, wie sie Landwirtschaft betreiben, um sich und ihre Familien selbst versorgen zu können. Oder Sie nutzen ihr Wissen, indem sie auf einer weiterführenden Schule eine Berufsausbildung machen. In beiden Fällen sind die Grundlagen Lesen, Schreiben und Rechnen unfassbar wertvoll für die Kinder.

Um das Thema Bildung mit unserem Unternehmen zu verknüpfen, muss man aber nicht unbedingt bis nach Angola reisen. Auch wenn bei uns in Deutschland, Österreich und der Schweiz die Bildungsgrundlagen weitestgehend abgedeckt sind, kommt die Fort- und Weiterbildung oft zu kurz.

Deshalb arbeitet unser gesamtes Team jeden Tag daran, (Weiter-)Bildung in Organisationen und Unternehmen einfach und unkompliziert zu machen. Unser Ziel ist es, den Bildungsverantwortlichen Verwaltungsaufwand abzunehmen. Mit den gewonnenen Freiräumen bleibt ihnen mehr Zeit für das wirklich Wichtige: die Menschen und Mitarbeiter.

Warum ist Bildung auch in Unternehmen ein wichtiges Thema?

Heute ist lebenslange Bildung wichtiger denn je. Wissen altert immer schneller, die Halbwertszeit liegt in manchen Branchen nur noch zwischen ein und zwei Jahren. Zusätzlich entstehen durch Digitalisierung, Fachkräftemangel und demographischen Wandel ständig neue Herausforderungen.

In den Unternehmen mit dem größten Wachstumspotenzial wird eine aktive Bildungskultur gepflegt. Mitarbeiter besuchen regelmäßig Schulungen oder nutzen andere Bildungsangebote, das lebenslange Lernen wird bewusst gefördert. Festo etwa steckt jährlich ca. 1,5% seines Umsatzes – das waren 2019 immerhin 3,07 Mrd. € (weltweiter Gesamtumsatz nach eigenen Angaben) –  in die hauseigene Academy und seine Lernzentren. Die Apple University gibt sich geradezu elitär, als Präsidenten haben die Kalifornier Joel Podolny ausgewählt – und der war nach seiner Tätigkeit als Forschungsleiter in Harvard immerhin Dekan der Yale University.

Bei einem genauen Blick auf die weltweit am stärksten wachsenden Unternehmen sieht man, dass der Wachstumserfolg von Unternehmen eng mit der Bildungskultur verknüpft ist. Dabei steht und fällt der Lern- und Bildungserfolg in Organisationen mit dem passenden Bildungsmanagement. Genau hier setzen wir seit 25 Jahren an.
Als Impulsgeber für digitales und individuelles Bildungsmanagement sind wir überzeugt:
Bildung ist der Schlüssel, der die Zukunft aufschließt.

Deshalb unterstützen wir mit unserer Software gezielt die Bildungsverantwortlichen in Unternehmen und Organisationen. Sie spielen die Schlüsselrolle, wenn es um die Bildungskultur geht. Wenn sie genügend Freiräume für die aktive Gestaltung von Weiterbildungsmaßnahmen bekommen, hilft das dem gesamten Unternehmen weiter.

Das bedeutet, dass das, was wir in über 40 Jahren aufgebaut haben, auch in Zukunft als Marke und Unternehmen für unsere Kunden und Mitarbeiter weiterbestehen wird.

TSS is a great landing platform for our company; we share the same values, like employee engagement and a 100% customer-centric approach. TSS has the ‘perpetual ownership’ principle, meaning that they are in it for the long term. A.P. System will become an independent business unit within TSS. It will become part of a group with more than 3,000 employees who believe in knowledge sharing. This will give us access to the enormous collection of accumulated VMS best practices. All of this gives us the solid foundation for the next phase for our company so we can continue to run a successful vertical market software company for decades to come.”
