Human Solutions Acquires Software Firm AVM



Human Solutions announced this week that it has acquired the ERP/PDM provider AVM GmbH & Co. ISYS KG effective as of 30th June 2011. According to Human Solutions, when taken into consideration with its subsidiaries assyst (acquired in May 2009) and AVM, it is now the largest sole-source provider of seamless system solutions for the apparel industry in the German-speaking market. Under the terms of the acquisition all 16 employees of AVM are being retained and AVM will continue to guarantee the smooth operation – and the further development – of its installed systems.

Andreas Seidl, CEO of Human Solutions and assyst, says that: “The acquisition of AVM is a big strategic step for us. We can now offer our apparel industry customers a seamless, single source portfolio of “Best in Class” products for CAD, PLM and ERP. In future, interfacing between the different fields of technology will no longer be a problem for our customers. I am delighted that we have been able to integrate a soundly-established company like AVM into our company portfolio”.
