DATEV Strengths, Domain Expertise, and Key Differentiators

DATEV is one of the largest European software companies and IT service providers for tax consultants, auditors and lawyers as well as their clients. DATEV supports them in the fields of accounting, business consulting, taxes, enterprise resource planning (ERP) as well as organization and planning. DATEV is constantly working on innovative solutions to further digitalize processes and link information more closely together. New applications such as DATEV Document Upload Online make this possible. And once again, the faster the data gets into the cloud, the smoother the collaboration between the consultant and the client. Using DATEV Document Upload Online, invoices and documents of all kinds can be uploaded to the DATEV Enterprise Online application. The new, web-based solution can be conveniently opened in a browser. Furtermore, DATEV goal is to eliminate isolated solutions. Never again forget, overlook, or maybe do the work twice – additional modules such as the “Documentation of the Preparation of Financial Statements” for tax consultants and auditors ensure this is the case. Because digitally optimizing everyday life also means exploiting additional opportunities to adopt a structured approach.

DATEV Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

For decades DATEV has been positioning itself as a service provider delivering outsourced solutions to its clients. With the growing acceptance of its Cloud applications and application service provisioning in collaboration with dozens of IT companies in Germany, DATEV appears to be taking a hybrid approach by becoming less of an business process outsourcer, but rather a service provider that can deliver Cloud-based software releases on a frequent basis. Applications such as DATEV Enterprise Online create individual opportunities for companies to collaborate with their tax consultants via the cloud.

DATEV Risks and Challenges

The transformation of DATAV to capture more Cloud applications revenues could be slow going given its huge base of BPO customers. Any shift to its service delivery model could be disruptive to a company founded in 1966 that thrives on stability and incremental improvement.

DATEV Ecosystem, Partners, Resellers and SI

Primarily direct sales. The company’s headquarters is in Nuremberg, and there are 25 branch offices in Germany, information offices in Berlin and Brussels, and associated companies in Germany, Italy, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, and Spain. Furthermore, from October 2018, DATEV is new partner of the accelerator TechFounders. Together with TechFounders, next year DATEV will identify start-ups for innovative cooperation projects and help them become professional business partners. UnternehmerTUM's Accelerator program offers start-ups, in addition to the cooperation project with an industry partner, comprehensive coaching on topics such as pitching, business case, HR, sales & marketing, venture capital and legal issues as well as contacts with high-profile mentors.
