Freiburg, June 22, 2017 – Haufe Group has won the Digital Champions Award in the category “Digital Transformation Midmarket” and accepted the prize at a ceremony in Berlin on Tuesday. The initiative set up by Deutsche Telekom and the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche honors particularly courageous and inspiring role models in the digital transformation.

The competition was aimed at all companies in the German midmarket that are meeting the challenges of the digital age and serve as examples of successful transformation processes.

The members of the jury, including Prof. Dr. Miriam Meckel, Editor-in-Chief of the business magazine WirtschaftsWoche, and Hagen Rickmann, Managing Director Business Customers at Deutsche Telekom, praised Haufe Group as a company that impressively demonstrates how, in Germany, too, it is possible to successfully develop software and, at the same time, master the transformation from publisher to software provider. Furthermore, in his prize-giving speech, Hagen Rickmann stressed that a digital transformation means more than new products: It also requires a company to completely reinvent itself. He added that the term “transformation” is easily said, but is always characterized by a lot of work and upheaval in organizations. Implementing transformation takes a great deal of courage.

“Haufe Group has been on the digitization journey already since the 1990s, and evolved from a publisher of loose-leaf publications to a provider of cloud- and Internet-based workplace and enterprise solutions. Our digital transformation impacts the entire company – from the organization and its processes, through the almost exclusively digital products and the digital customer experience, to leadership and culture,” says Markus Reithwiesner, CEO of Haufe Group. “We’re very pleased to accept this award. It shows us that we’re on the right path. All Haufe Group employees – who help shape the transformation so successfully – are deserving of this prize.”
