Visiativ announces the acquisition of 1Life, which specialises in production planning for manufacturing companies. The merger will enhance Visiativ’s manufacturing solutions and industrial processes as well as bolster its customer portfolio.
With its expert team of 80 employees, 1Life is an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) integrator for industry (Open-Prod and Cegid PMI), supporting more than 1,000 manufacturing SMEs for over a decade. The company operates in several locations throughout France, for increased customer proximity.
1Life achieved revenue of €10 million in 2022, generating 50% from value-added services (CONSULTING) and the other 50% in SOFTWARE with business that is recurring, maintenance-driven and subscription-based.
This acquisition will complement Visiativ’s value proposition and manufacturing expertise. Factoring in a customer base of some 1,000 manufacturers, this merger will help to promote synergies for sales and operations.
The acquisition fully contributes to the targets of the SHIFT5 strategic plan, with the launch of CEGID PMI and Open-Prod manufacturing software, a connection to our Agora technology architecture and solutions, and accelerated cross-selling between our businesses. As a result, Visiativ cements its position as a trusted partner within its manufacturing customer base as it aims to become a ‘One Stop Partner’ for small and midsized companies. The merger will also boost the Visiativ Innovation Engine value proposition through diversified partnerships (Make/Aggregate).
