Step by step to success.

From start-up to global player in 20 years.

The initial idea was to shake up the financial markets with a practical factoring software solution. No sooner said than done: In the following years, our four founders turned efcom gmbh into one of the leading providers in this field—first in Germany, then throughout Europe.

2000: The race is on

efcom gmbh is officially established in December. The company’s head office is in Eppertshausen, Southwest Germany.

2001: Off we go

The first employees are hired. In addition,
the first version of ef3 is used by clients –
based on an Oracle database. An in-depth
market analysis provided the necessary practical knowledge for success.

2002: We’ve done it

efcom becomes market leader in Germany
in the area of factoring software.

2004: Going global

The focus is on the development of attractive add-on modules, especially for cross-border financial transactions. On this basis, the first foreign customers are acquired: HVB Slovakia and FactorBank AG in Vienna, Austria.

2005: Time to relocate

The head office is moved to Neu-Isenburg, just up the road from the former one.

2007: Eastern Europe

We establish a presence in several Eastern European countries.

2012: Enhancement

solution tailored to the needs of supply
chain finance. This year marks the 10th
time efcom has held the Factoring Symposium – an international symposium
for factoring experts and IT service providers.

2014: efcom knows no boundaries

efcom is represented across Europe in 9 countries with a total of 32 factoring institutions.

2015: efOnline

The new web portal efOnline is launched.
