In addition to almost 30 years of experience in software development, OPTIMAL SYSTEMS' core competences include a broad experience in providing ECM solutions for all kinds of industries in the market as well as software-related services on various levels. OPTIMAL SYSTEMS' high technical integration competence, individualization and personal expertise prove to be particularly valuable.
OPTIMAL SYSTEMS offers a wide range of software solutions and thus perfectly completes the Kyocera Group's Enterprise Content Management portfolio. Kyocera hopes that this investment will enable the company to offer its customers a broader portfolio and thus open up new customer groups. OPTIMAL SYSTEMS will remain independent and will be continued unchanged.
