SCHEMA Closes Fiscal Year 2013 at a Record High


With the highest turnover in the company“s history, the highest number of new customers in one fiscal year and the highest number of staff since SCHEMA“s foundation, the producer of the Content Management System SCHEMA ST4 is looking back on an extremely successful year.

In the fiscal year 2013, 47 new customers choose SCHEMA ST4, more than ever before. „In the last year we put a lot of effort in new developments in order to turn SCHEMA ST4 into an even better and more attractive product for our existing and new customers. I am very pleased that the new features of version „SCHEMA ST4 2014″ have been received so well“, says Marcus Kesseler the CEO responsible within the SCHEMA group for the development of ST4.

There is an astonishing variety of customers that decided on ST4. A traditional stronghold of SCHEMA is medical technology, where the producer of an XML editing system was able to gain new renowned customers like e.g. Hamilton Medical AG, Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, Varian Medical Systems Deutschland GmbH or the Tecan Group. Important customers from classic mechanical and plant engineering like e.g. ALD Vacuum Technologies GmbH, Mayer Maschinenbaugesellschaft mbH für innovative Fütterungstechnik (Siloking), BANSS Schlacht- und Fördertechnik GmbH or Beckhoff Automation GmbH could also be added to the list.

With the user interface of SCHEMA ST4 now completely available in Japanese four new customers could be gained in Japan. Here Toyota Industries Corporation is certainly the most noticeable. In Sweden several departments of Atlas Copco one of the largest Swedish and at the same time internationally operating companies could be gained.
„We are demanding high standards of our product and ourselves. In order to keep up our much-praised service with the quality expected by our customers and without reducing the rate of innovations, it is mandatory that SCHEMA is growing along with the number of its customers. By now the SCHEMA group has about 100 employees, an increase of around 15%“, reports Stefan Freisler, SCHEMA CEO, not without pride.

The newly founded SCHEMA Systems GmbH has also had a successful start in 2013. Several customers at once made use of the SCHEMA group’s extended service offer. The scope of services ranges from the installation of SCHEMA ST4 via the application management, i.e. the operation of SCHEMA ST4 as a component of the customer’s IT environment to Full Service Hosting and Providing where the complete IT infrastructure for the operation of ST4 is outsourced to SCHEMA Systems.

SCHEMA can look back positively on the past fiscal year and regarding the order books, which are even fuller than at the beginning of 2013, be more than optimistic for 2014.
