DATEV Market Opportunities, M&A and Geo Expansions

In May 2021, The cooperative takes yet another step towards automated accounting. DATEV eG opens the door to a future where artificial intelligence (AI) can automate certain parts of accounting: with the service invoice automation. Interested tax consultants may use AI for accounting processes for digital incoming and outgoing invoices for selected clients. Vouchers are uploaded to the DATEV cloud and generate suggested accounting entries, which are then directly entered into the tax consultants’ accounting software. This increases the efficiency of the accounting processes regarding the cooperation of enterprises and consultancies.

In July 2020, DATEV eG took over a 25.9 percent stake in the software company adorsys GmbH & Co. KG. The Nuremberg-based IT company develops business software and covers the entire process of digital transformation for its customers

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 a 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.
