Syncier announced today the acquisition of Expleo Group Management Consulting Austria GmbH (Expleo GMC) including 90 staff and its branches in Munich and Vienna. As part of the transaction, Syncier is also establishing a branch in France. By acquiring this consulting firm, which specializes in the core insurance platform Allianz Business System (ABS), Syncier further strengthens its operations and expertise to meet the growing demand for the ABS Enterprise Edition (ABS EE) in the insurance market. 

Expleo GMC has been working very closely with Allianz for over 20 years to support the ongoing development of ABS in various projects and countries. “Our colleagues at Expleo are the perfect complement in helping to realize Syncier’s vision of insurance as a service. By significantly increasing the number of ABS-EE experts, we will be able to fulfill our customer requests, while also meeting Allianz’s need for ABS expertise in existing projects,” says Andreas Nolte, Managing Director of Syncier.

Olivier Aldrin, CEO Expleo Group: “I am very pleased to see our team integrating into Syncier. This move is a testimony to the close relationship that Expleo has built with Allianz over the last 20 years. During this time, our expert team has accompanied Allianz in its digital transformation to drive growth. I look forward to continuing our partnership as we are deepening our business relationship and embedding quality and agile into business operations.”

With the acquisition, Syncier is expanding its European footprint. In addition to its offices in Munich, Hannover and Stuttgart, Syncier is now also present in Paris and Vienna.
