Driving growth through M&A excellence

A trusted industry leader, helping companies maximise future potential.

Forterro team shot at SLT 2023

World-class components, better together

From day one, Forterro has delivered great software solutions serving the industrial mid-market. Each of our products, and the teams that have created and developed them, contribute to our position as a category leader. 
We recognise that your unique journey and industry expertise are valuable assets. By combining those elements with our extensive industry presence, you can enhance your business capabilities and drive them to the next level. 

New ways to grow

As part of smaller businesses with one- or two-product portfolios, perhaps your solutions didn’t always have the financial or human resources to deliver on transformational growth plans. But within Forterro there is a wealth of know-how, infrastructure and capital that can be leveraged to improve operations, uncover new market opportunities and drive value creation – all while staying true to the values that made your software a market leader in the first place. 

Research & development

Forterro’s product and market experts across Europe and around the world share a passion for the industrial mid-market. We work daily to evolve our software and services to solve similar problems for similar customers. And we’re evaluating the shared potential of opportunities presented by new technologies, such as artificial intelligence. As part of our organisation, you’d have access to that innovation – which can positively impact your roadmap and fast-track the features your customers have been asking about for years. 

A partner for the future

Our goal is to make great software products even greater. As your potential partner, we are committed to appreciating and understanding your brand equity, listening to the experience and judgement of your teams, protecting the investments of your customers, and building on your established success. Our strategy has never been, nor ever will be, a race to a single product. We deliver specialisation, championing each of our products in its local geography or market vertical – today, tomorrow and beyond. 

Integration engine

We're not about just ‘closing the deal’, but more about what comes after. Our integration approach and effort focuses on harmonising cultures, leveraging strengths and unlocking value. And we do that with a relentless effort to best serve our three primary stakeholder groups – employees, customers and shareholders – ensuring that the integration process is shaped and paced to deliver success and propel Forterro and our acquired organisations forward, together.
