How did the European software industry develop in 2013? Which companies managed to increase their turnover? Which of them suffered losses? The European private equity company Truffle Capital provides answers to these questions in its "Truffle 100 Europe" report. In what is now the ninth edition of the benchmark ranking, the independent venture capital firm has once again listed Europe's software groups with the highest turnover: For the second time in succession, the Asseco Group appears at sixth place in the top 100, and is thus establishing itself within the leading group of major European IT companies. The Group is the parent company of Asseco Solutions, the Karlsruhe-based ERPII provider for SMEs.

The "Truffle 100 Europe" ranking is produced in cooperation with the industry analysts IDC and CXP Group, as well as the Essec Business School. The ranking list is based on surveys conducted by the analyst houses involved. By focusing on European software firms, the ranking provides a transparent overview of the market as well as casting light on trends and developments in the European software sector overall. Once again this year, the German company SAP occupies first place as the firm with the highest turnover, some distance ahead of Dassault Systèmes from France and Sage from the UK. With sales of €1.063 bn, the Asseco Group with its headquarters in Poland has achieved sixth place in the rankings.

As a merger between international IT companies, the Asseco Group with more than 16,600 employees is represented in most European countries, as well as Israel, the USA, Japan and Canada. The company has more than 40,000 customers to which it offers a diverse portfolio of solutions for an extremely wide range of economic sectors – more than half of turnover is earned through solutions developed in-house. One of the Group's constituents is the ERPII provider, Asseco Solutions, based in Karlsruhe.

"With the support of one of Europe's software groups with the highest turnover, we're able to offer our customers the best of both worlds. As an SME and partner to the SME sector, we are close to customers, we understand the local market and we can act with regional expertise. At the same time, we have the innovative potential and investment security that come from being the sixth largest IT provider in Europe. We, and with us our customers, benefit from this combination not only in everyday business but also in strategically important sectors such as research and development."
