The merger of IWOfurn with Integrated Worlds creates potentials: it bundles forces, creates ressources and strengthens competences!

Dear ladies and gen­tle­men, dear cus­tomers and busi­ness partners,

We are pleased to announce that as of August 1, 2022, two strong com­pa­nies will join forces. IWO­furn Ser­vice GmbH and Inte­grat­ed Worlds GmbH will become one com­pa­ny: Inte­grat­ed Worlds GmbH. The man­ag­ing direc­tors and share­hold­ers Klaus Bröhl, Diet­mar Weber and Patrick Sönke are com­bin­ing the know-how of their organizations.

IWO­furn has been known as a trans­for­ma­tion engine since 2008, suc­cess­ful­ly dri­ving dig­i­ti­za­tion in the home & fur­nish­ings indus­try through its plat­forms. IWO­furn enables the net­work­ing of over 1,000 com­pa­nies in the dai­ly exchange of busi­ness data and process dig­i­tal­iza­tion. IWO­furn is sup­port­ed by an advi­so­ry board con­sist­ing of: BVDM, DCC, Mit­tel­standsver­bund ZGV as well as VDM.

Inte­grat­ed Worlds has been a suc­cess­ful and cross-indus­try pio­neer for the dig­i­tal trans­for­ma­tion of medi­um-sized com­pa­nies since 1996. With its cus­tomer-cen­tric think­ing, it has already devel­oped many flex­i­ble and scal­able solu­tions for elec­tron­ic data exchange and the automa­tion of trade and logis­tics process­es. Its web-based and mobile appli­ca­tions strength­en the entire val­ue chain from pur­chas­ing to sales.

The merg­er of the two com­pa­nies is thus a real trans­for­ma­tion accel­er­a­tor for medi­um-sized busi­ness­es. The two com­pa­nies have been coop­er­at­ing close­ly for years and are expand­ing impor­tant com­pe­ten­cies and ser­vices dur­ing the merg­er. Com­bin­ing forces and addi­tion­al resources leads to new ser­vice pack­ages and com­pe­ten­cies that help us to meet your grow­ing require­ments and goals.

With the new plat­form FXM — Feed­back & Expe­ri­ence Man­age­ment — we are fac­ing new chal­lenges for the use of Big Data and arti­fi­cial intel­li­gence. Here, we can work with you to opti­mize your process world based on data-dri­ven empir­i­cal val­ues and devel­op the foun­da­tions for your strate­gic decisions.

Since 2021, we have been con­stant­ly expand­ing and opti­miz­ing our ser­vice offer­ing. As a cus­tomer, you will ben­e­fit from new ser­vice cen­ters that ide­al­ly com­ple­ment the ser­vices of both com­pa­nies. These include:

  • Cus­tomer Suc­cess Management
  • Prod­uct Management
  • Operations/Finance Man­age­ment

Through the con­sis­tent use of syn­er­gies, the trans­for­ma­tion tur­bo will be ignit­ed along the entire val­ue chain and in var­i­ous medi­um-sized indus­tries! The new­ly formed com­pa­ny will then serve more than 1,500 com­pa­nies world­wide with more than 30 mil­lion busi­ness trans­ac­tions. By the end of 2022, the com­pa­ny will employ around 60 peo­ple. The man­ag­ing direc­tors and share­hold­ers Klaus Bröhl, Diet­mar Weber and Patrick Sönke ensure the con­ti­nu­ity of their cur­rent busi­ness and active­ly shape the expect­ed growth.

Please note that there are tax law changes with the merg­er of which you should be aware. You can down­load this infor­ma­tion as a PDF file.

Frequently asked questions and answers

From the point of view of com­pa­ny law, this takes place in 2 steps. In the first step, 
the cur­rent­ly exist­ing Inte­grat­ed Worlds GmbH will be tak­en over by 
IWO­furn Ser­vice GmbH. In a direct­ly sub­se­quent step, IWO­furn Ser­vice GmbH 
will be renamed Inte­grat­ed Worlds GmbH. 
The new com­pa­ny will oper­ate under the name Inte­grat­ed Worlds GmbH and the 
ser­vices of the then for­mer IWO­furn Ser­vice GmbH will con­tin­ue to be marketed, 
mar­ket­ed, oper­at­ed and fur­ther devel­oped under the “IWO­furn” brand as before. 
The Advi­so­ry Board will con­tin­ue to advise the new com­pa­ny as the “IWO­furn Advi­so­ry Board” and as a 
body anchored in the share­hold­er agree­ment, but exclu­sive­ly on the 
fur­ther devel­op­ment and dis­sem­i­na­tion of the IWO­furn system. 
Sim­ple answer: “Noth­ing at all!”. All exist­ing contractual 
agree­ments with the com­pa­nies will be tak­en over and ful­filled 100% by the newly 
cre­at­ed company.
