                                      The nucleus of today’s EASY SOFTWARE AG was founded. The name EASY stands for Electronic Archive SYstems (Elektronische Archiv SYsteme GmbH). The purpose of the business: the electronic archiving and cost-saving handling of processes and documents. The first company office is in Düsseldorf.

                                      First proprietary solutions

                                      Just after moving to Mülheim an der Ruhr, EASY brings their first electronic archiving systems and applications for document processing, developed in-house, to the market. Even then, they could be integrated with company processes and interact with the most important applications in the company. Thus, they have diverse uses.

                                      Branch Office in Austria

                                      In order to develop and maintain a comprehensive partner network for all of Austria, EASY founded Easy Software GmbH, Salzburg, as an EASY distributor in the Alpine republic.

                                      The AG is born

                                      In 1998, EASY changed its legal structure. EASY SOFTWARE GmbH became EASY SOFTWARE AG.

                                      Stock Market Launch

                                      In the second quarter of 1999, EASY SOFTWARE AG ventured onto the stock market. It was listed on the Neuer Markt of the Frankfurt Securities Exchange. Some 90 percent of EASY employees took the opportunity to purchase shares in their company in advance. In 2003, the company moved from the Neuer Markt to the Geregelter Markt segment of the market (today: Regulierter Markt).

                                      Crossing the channel

                                      EASY SOFTWARE (UK) PLC is founded. It immediately takes over the care of EASY partners in the United Kingdom.

                                      EASY in Asia and America

                                      EASY SOFTWARE begins the development of a network of certified software partners in the Asia Pacific region. The same year, EASY launches a subsidiary for business in the USA and Canada with Easy Software Inc. in Exton, Pennsylvania, USA.

                                      EASY purchases otris

                                      The global partner network has grown and grown – and EASY strengthens their development expertise in the field of business process solutions. In the second quarter, EASY SOFTWARE AG purchases a majority share in otris software AG. otris has been a development partner since 2002 and is one of the most innovative market actors in the field of business process solutions.

                                      Represented in Turkey

                                      Another branch office opens its doors. Easy Software TÜRKíE Lte. Sti., headquartered in Istanbul, begins work.

                                      EASY Spirit takes the stage

                                      With EASY SPIRIT, EASY redefines Enterprise Mobility. The development and integration of mobile apps in company applications is now easier than ever.

                                      Change to a solution provider

                                      EASY launches the EASY Cloud Platform. With the help of native Cloud apps and interfaces, it integrates existing infrastructures and connects people, processes, and systems. The EASY FIT program is concluded successfully.

                                      At EASY WORLD 2017, EASY presents the Digital Agenda and makes plain the master plan for the coming years: EASY will transform from a technology provider to an important partner in digitization. The EASY Cloud Platform, with its Invictus innovation project, and the new EASY strategy consulting “beyond” underscore the claim.

                                      EASY WORLD 2017

                                      „Evolution statt Revolution“

                                      Dieter Weißhaar has been CEO of the EASY group since September 2018. With his credo “Evolution instead of revolution”, Dieter Weißhaar has developed a new digital strategy – the EASY 21 strategy focuses on investment protection by integrating customers’ existing systems into new solutions. Further cornerstones are internationalization, the expansion of cloud solutions, and the use of new technologies such as blockchain in companies. The theme of EASY 21 will be the motto of this year’s EASY WORLD in September.

                                      ONE EASY Family

                                      The acquisition of Apinauten GmbH has opened an attractive and strongly growing cloud and digitization business for EASY. The EASY family grew by 45 new employees. The EASY ApiOmat as a scalable enterprise backend-as-a-service connects different systems through standardized communication and brings digital services to market faster.

                                      At EASY World 2019, EASY presented exclusive showcases of the multi-experience platform ApiOmat as part of the EASY family. During this event, the results of the study with KPMG “When Data Drives Experience” were presented to the press.
