Dualis IT Solution
UNITY recognized the potential of the software manufacturer DUALIS in its digitalization and Industrie 4.0 capabilities early on and has been an incubator for the young company from Dresden since 2010. UNITY supported its strategy development, took over the business coaching, set up the controlling department and established lean, growth-promoting processes and structures. The equity participation of the UNITY Beteiligungsgesellschaft (UBG) created the necessary financial security during its growth phase.
With UNITY’s support, DUALIS tripled its revenue within just a few years. Finally, UNITY also supported DUALIS in the M&A process and prepared its sale to iTAC Software AG. As a subsidiary of the mechanical and plant engineering group Dürr, iTAC is an ideal strategic partner for DUALIS to tap into further potential for growth and venture into the age of IoT. Together with Dürr, iTAC drives the digitalization of industrial production processes forward. DUALIS solutions fit perfectly with iTAC’s strategy, as they have been established in the market for years and, in combination with MES, build core IoT applications in factories. DUALIS still operates independently and will continue to develop its market position. In addition to SMEs it will address large companies with iTAC in the future.
"Thanks to UNITY’s support, I was able to focus on the strategic goals of the company. UNITY helped us work on a more professional level. In addition, the financial involvement of the UNITY Beteiligungsgesellschaft gave us the security to consistently follow the path of growth. Their professional support throughout the M&A process ultimately led us to a strong, new partner that will make excellent, long-term business opportunities possible."
