Joining forces to cover the complete digital evolution journey of its customers, from hardware to software and managed services solutions, and increase its headcount by around 400 IT professionals in the next 3 years
Combining Accesa’s 16 years of experience in delivering leading digital services with Ratiodata’s more than 45 years of experience in decentralised IT and self-service, as well as digitalisation solutions, through this acquisition, The Ratiodata Group enhances its capabilities to support customers’ end-to-end digital evolution journeys. A key brand in the Volksbank & Raiffeisenbank IT delivery structure, Ratiodata has a successful track-record of providing tailored solutions for highly-regulated industries like Banking and financial services providers.
The two companies have enjoyed a strong, long-term collaboration over the past four years, with Accesa supporting Radiodata’s own digitalisation strategy and the development of robust solutions that provide an enhanced customer experience.

“Further developing our partnership with Accesa, earlier this year we launched RARo, a joint venture that bundles our competencies to accelerate business evolution in highly regulated markets like Banking, Insurance and Healthcare.
We are now excited to welcome Accesa and its talented professionals within the Ratiodata Group, strengthening our capabilities to deliver complete digital evolution journeys for major brands in both regulated and non-regulated markets; covering hardware, engineering, as well as software development and managed services solutions across the DACH region.” ~ Martin Greiwe, Board Spokesman Ratiodata

Under the leadership of an upcoming, shared Romanian – German management team, the two companies will follow a clear guiding principle for both existing and new business, effectively responding to a wide array of regulatory needs across multiple industries. RARo will engage with companies in regulated industries and Accesa in non-regulated ones, providing the same complete digital evolution services for their clients through a right mix of on-site & remote service delivery capabilities and rewarding career opportunities for their people.

Nurturing a people-oriented mindset, as well as sharing common values like transparency, a high degree of professionalism and genuine care for people, solutions and our impact, we look forward to this new phase of Accesa’s evolution, harnessing the full breath of our capabilities to deliver value for the entire Ratiodata Group and all the people we engage with.” ~ Cristina Puiu, Chief People Officer, Accesa

We will continue to support our customer’s technology stacks, as well as respond to the increasing demand we’re seeing in both core areas like Java, .NET, Web Technologies, Cloud, Microsoft 365, and niche ones like AI, RPA and RSA Archer.
