SCORES Analysis

Ascom Strengths

Ascom is an international solutions provider with comprehensive know-how in healthcare workflows and telecommunications. The company is active in Wireless Solutions (an international market leader for high-value, customer-specific on-site communication solutions and workflow optimization) and Network Testing (a global market leader in testing, monitoring, post processing, and performance optimization for mobile networks).


As announced in January 2015, Ascom has embarked to transform the Group into a company focusing on IT and communication technology primarily in the healthcare industry by 2020. Already today, Ascom is well positioned as a provider of integrated workflow solutions mainly in healthcare and the market offers attractive and profitable growth opportunities on a global level.


During 2015, the Company accelerated investments into solutions, software and professional services and expanded Sales, Marketing and Technology capabilities. Thanks to the Wireless Solutions Division, Ascom Group reported an increase in revenues at constant currencies in 2015 of 1.5%, and generated revenues of CHF 410.8 million (2014: CHF 437.7 million). In 2015, Wireless Solutions experienced a good performance in important key regions. Overall, the division recorded revenue growth of 3.7% year-on-year at constant currencies, posting revenues of CHF 304.2 million (2014: CHF 318.9 million) Supported by the successful launch of Ascom Myco, a purpose-built smart device for the healthcare, the division was able to further strengthen its leading market position in healthcare ICT. Wireless Solutions established in 2015 an important strategic alliance with Tyco SimplexGrinnell for integrated healthcare communication solutions in the United States and Canada.


Another important step towards becoming a big provider of healthcare ICT solutions was the acquisition of the Italian medical software company UMS (United Medical Software), announced in December 2015. Among its earlier acquistions are UMS (United Medical Software) in Italy for EHR apps and integrations for medical devices and Miratel for nurse call systems in Finland.
