Total Specific Solutions has taken its first steps into the mobility and personal transport vertical with the acquisition of Korton Software BV, a supplier of software solutions for mobility of specific target groups. With the acquisition, TSS strengthens its portfolio of software solutions for municipalities who are responsible for taking care of the transportation needs of special target groups.
Korton Software will operate as an independent business unit within TSS with Kevin Philippen as its Managing Director. Peter Altevogt will continue as CEO of the Korton Group. Korton Software was founded in 1997 and is a supplier of a specialized software suite for mobility and personal transport. The software connects the passenger, transporter, planner, and the client.
The software suite of Korton Software focusses on the transportation companies, transport coordinators, local governments, and health insurers. Korton Regie takes care of all aspects of arranging transportation, from registration to invoicing. Korton WinTax is a software solution for taxi fares and gives the planners direct access to all the needed information. Korton’s staff planner ensures that you can realize the planning of your staff for a longer period, even in companies with many part-timers and different shift patterns. The solution is also used in the leisure and hospitality vertical.
Patrice van Geffen, General Manager at TSS: “Korton Software, just like TSS, aims to make their clients successful. That is one reason their mobility solution is a good fit with TSS. Every month millions of fares are processed through the solutions of Korton Software, making them a leading player in the Dutch mobility vertical. We can learn a lot from them, and it offers us the opportunity to expand our knowledge of different domains.”
“And it gives us the chance to extend our offering to existing customer groups, municipalities, and health insurers. This also applies to those local governments that take care of social transportation and transportation of special needs pupils.”
Peter Altevogt, CEO of the Korton Group: “In over 22 years, the Korton Group has evolved into one of the leading players in two different areas: provider of mobility solutions and the provider of Managed Cloud Services. The time has come for the Korton Group to divide so that the software, as well as the IT cloud company, can get the full focus for the next phase. The future for our clients and employees of Korton Software is guaranteed through this next step and the focus on the long term. As CEO of the Korton Group, I will focus on the further growth of the Managed Cloud Services.”
