Step by step to success.

from start-up to global player

over the course of almost 20 years.

The initial idea was to shake up the financial markets with a practical factoring software solution. It was an idea they put into immediate action: our four founders established efcom gmbh and then over the ensuing years they made it into one of the leading providers in this field – first in Germany and then throughout Europe.

2000: The race is on

efcom gmbh is officially established in December. The company’s head office is registered in Eppertshausen, south-west 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 its success.

2002: We’ve done it

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

2004: Going global

The focus turns to developing compelling
add-on modules, especially for trans-
nationalfinancial transactions. Based on these, the first foreign clients were
acquired: HVB Slovakia in Slovakia and FactorBank AG in Vienna, Austria.

efcom moves its head office to
Neu-Isenburg, just up the road
from the former one.

for factoring experts and IT service providers.
