scope solutions ag, the Swiss software provider of archive information systems, joins Total Specific Solutions

Nieuwegein/Basel, 11 April 2022. Total Specific Solutions (TSS) has acquired scope solutions ag (scope solutions), one of Europe’s leading suppliers of archive information systems (AIS). This is the second vertical market software (VMS) company in Switzerland, following Datamed SA. In the DACH region, scope solutions is the ninth VMS company joining TSS.

scope solutions mainly serves public archives (national, state and municipal archives) but also corporate archives, libraries and museums/collections. It offers comprehensive standard solutions for public and private archives, no matter the size. The archive information systems (AIS) have a modular structure and support all typical business processes needed to manage archives. The scopeBusiness solution focuses on the needs of company archives and small public archives, collections and libraries. And scopeArchiv™ is the solution for archive operators with discerning needs, whether state archives, large company archives or extensive collections and libraries.

Jasper Bollen, General Manager at TSS: “I am pleased that scope solutions has joined TSS DACH. It has an impressive client list and is one of the leading players in its field in the region. And it also has clients in other countries stretching as far as Iceland. scope solutions is the first TSS company to deliver dedicated archive information solutions in the DACH region, focusing on making records available to users anywhere at any time. The company provides its clients with digital access to their archives and unlocks the value of the stored knowledge.

More than two decades ago, Hans Hagenbuch co-founded the company, which has become the DACH region’s leading archive management solutions provider. The time had come for him to look for new ownership which he found in TSS. We believe in “Software for Life” providing the company, its customers, employees and stakeholders the stability to move confidently into the future.

The current managing director Jürg Seiler will continue as Managing Director of the company in its new phase as an independent business unit of TSS.”
