Based in Freiburg, Lexware is the leading business software provider for small and medium sized businesses. Lexware is a part of Haufe Group, which stands for a radical change from a traditional publishing house to a group of companies that makes over 90 percent of its revenue with digital products and services. To find out more about Lexware and its portfolio, we got in touch with Carsten Schröder, President of Cloud ERP lexbizz.
For more than 30 years, Lexware has been providing innovative software solutions for small and mediumsized businesses. One of the latest solutions the firm has created, is the XRP lexbizz which becomes a digital transformation hub for its clients.
To begin with, Carsten offers us more of an insight into the firm’s specialisms and its client base. “As a cloud ERP provider, we offer a 360-degree corporate platform for the German mid-market segment which aims to digitalise value chains, connect companies with their markets and help them adapt to business models. Moreover, with our standard cloud ERP offering many industry-specific extensions, we are able to serve the B2C/B2B trade, distribution, service and production industries.”
Recognised as leading innovators in software solutions, Carsten believes that Lexware’s bespoke ERP system is one of the major reasons why the firm has been so successful in its attempts to move ahead of competitors in the industry.
“With the ERP powerhouse Acumatica as our core software solution and the financial software expertise of the Freiburg-based software manufacturer Lexware, we offer medium-sized companies a complete solution that paves the way to the digital economy. lexbizz maps the business processes of all departments in one system. Unlike any other ERP solution, ours can also be easily extended with industry-specific functionality, as well as numerous interfaces to third party-software.
Today, there is more than one million customers who work with Lexware’s business solutions. The initial challenge for the firm has been taking the enterprise Cloud-XRP lexbizz from Acumatica (the biggest growing CloudXRP in the world) and making it conform with German requirements, as Carsten further explains. “Given our financial software and mid-size market know-how, we have high expectations of the software that we want to provide to our customers. It needs to be intuitive, deliver the relevant feature-sets in excellence and most of all conform to all legal requirements in Germany. We are now excited to have released a market-proven software, that will hopefully revolutionise the way Germans view ERPs going forward.”
As part of a dynamic and family organisation, employees of lexbizz aim to develop successful solutions for the working world of tomorrow. Moreover, as Carsten explains further, employees play an integral role in helping the firm achieve their targets.
“What distinguishes our people is an inimitable mixture of intuition, joy and enthusiasm. Our team thinks the unthinkable and does the impossible. This is what drives us forward time and time again.”
Finally, Carsten comments on the future of lexbizz and even delves into the firm’s plans for the years to come. “Going forward, we want to be the digital transformation hub for the mid-size market in Germany. With a strong nucleus ERPSoftware, industry-specific extensions and a widerange of interface extensions, our customers will never have to re-platform again and will always have one central truth of their data. Modern technology allows us to support our customers with machine learning and artificial intelligence, making our platform a system of learning and results. Rather than just storing data, our platform will give recommendations, next best actions and streamline workflows based on learning algorithms.”
