Bremen, 03.04.2023 - In the past financial year, the digital group team neusta once again recorded revenue growth - not least thanks to the expansion of various business areas such as sports and e-commerce. The expansion of the digital family to include Inscript, Octagen and neusta travel commerce also had a positive impact. "We were able to increase our total turnover in 2022 from around 144 to 168 million euros," says Carsten Meyer-Heder, founder and Managing Partner of team neusta.

"In 2022, the effects of the coronavirus pandemic were barely noticeable. This allowed us to focus on the further development of our business areas, such as sport, industry and e-commerce. This had a positive impact on the Group's overall sales," says Meyer-Heder. "We want to continue this positive development in 2023. In particular, we are focusing on expanding the Finance division."

Ticketing solution for the sports industry
It is becoming increasingly important for professional sports clubs to create exceptional digital experiences for their fans. With hub:ahead, neusta sports offers a platform solution that enables the creation of a powerful, scalable, digital world. The hub:ahead has been expanded to include a specially developed ticketing solution, which is already being used successfully by Eisbären Bremerhaven. Ticketing completes the product range, which includes a website, live ticker and app.

Growth in the group of companies
With the majority shareholding in the full-service agency Inscript from Austria, team neusta is further expanding its sphere of activity in the DACH region. Inscript offers services ranging from web-based development to content creation and marketing. Its clients include RAUCH Fruchtsäfte and Deuring.

By acquiring a stake in Octagen, team neusta is expanding its portfolio in the field of e-commerce. Managing Director Stefan Krohne and his team specialize in "commercetools". "We have been working closely with Octagen for many years. It was therefore only logical to acquire a stake in the company," says Meyer-Heder.

In addition, the tourism expertise was strengthened with the new company neusta travel commerce. The Cologne-based company has expertise in the field of booking technologies. Managing Directors Sascha Mädje and Oliver Nökel are committed to digitizing the travel sales process with their own solution.

Partnership with Axon Soft
In spring 2022, team neusta entered into a partnership with the IT company Axon Soft in Cluj, Romania. "If necessary, we can use Axon Soft's developers in projects to cover staffing requirements at peak times. Our companies are very similar, particularly in terms of working methods, quality standards and corporate culture. This made the decision to enter into a partnership easy for us," says Meyer-Heder. The developers are onboarded beforehand in the so-called lab, where they complete code challenges, for example, and get to know team neusta's way of working. This ensures that they are optimally prepared for working in the project team.

Outlook 2023: Focus on the financial sector
Since April 1, 2023, neusta fintech solutions has been managed by Andrea Klanke and Dennis Wöltje. Both have many years of experience in the financial sector. "We want to promote digitalization in the financial sector in an even more targeted manner. With neusta fintech solutions, we support banks, insurance companies and fintechs in gaining qualified customer leads and optimizing processes through open banking, among other things," explains Meyer-Heder.

Change of legal form of team neusta GmbH to a European Company (SE)
team neusta has embarked on the path to becoming a European Company. The background to the change of legal form is to make the Group even more future-oriented. The SE is a modern and flexible legal form that is being used by more and more medium-sized companies - especially in the IT sector. "Our aim is to grow beyond the borders of the DACH region in the future. This growth course will be supported by the conversion to an SE. This will make it easier to establish subsidiaries and branches across Europe. I myself will remain on board at team neusta as founder and board member," explains Meyer-Heder. Other members of the Management Board are Fabian Gutsche and Uwe Scheja, who already have long-standing professional and personal ties to team neusta.
