As a means of helping future growth of the SIMSme secure messaging system, Brabbler AG has acquired the app from Deutsche Post DHL that has in return bought a stake in the IT firm. No information has been disclosed on the purchase price by Brabbler.
“This is a great opportunity to bring the best of both product worlds together, and to continue to expand the portfolio of digital communications solutions ‘Made in Germany’,” says Jörg Sellmann, CFO of Brabbler AG. “And it’s great to have Deutsche Post on board as an important strategic shareholder.”
“We are selling SIMSme at a time when demand is on the rise, especially among business customers, and development capacity needs to be expanded significantly,” says Marco Hauprich, Senior Vice President Digital Labs Deutsche Post AG and responsible for SIMSme. “Brabbler AG – with its expertise in digital communications, experienced team of developers, and extensive experience in marketing digital services – is exactly the right partner to take our successful product to the next level.”
SIMSme customers will continue using the app as before. It is free for private customers while enterprise customers will continue on the existing fee structure. Data protection and end-to-end encryption will not change either.
