Portfolio Company News

The SCHEMA Group (SCHEMA) is expanding its previous 27% shareholding in TID Informatik GmbH (TID) to 100%.

TID Informatik GmbH (TID), headquartered in Inning am Ammersee and with a branch in Amberg, Germany, produces the CATALOGcreator® software and specializes in electronic spare parts catalogs and the management of service and spare parts information. With its products SCHEMA ST4 and SCHEMA CDS, SCHEMA is the leading manufacturer of professional software solutions for product and process documentation.

As a new wholly-owned subsidiary of the SCHEMA Group, TID Informatik will continue to operate as an independent company on the market alongside SCHEMA Consulting and SCHEMA Systems. The previous managing directors, founders Robert Schäfer and Rafi Boudjakdjian, will continue to run TID Informatik GmbH as managing directors.

With this acquisition, the SCHEMA Group is expanding its portfolio as a provider of system solutions for content lifecycle management. With more than 300 customers from various industries, TID Informatik is the leading producer of software for the creation of electronic parts catalogs and service information systems. TID has recorded strong and profitable growth in recent years and employs around 50 people at its Inning am Ammersee and Amberg locations. The SCHEMA Group has thus grown to a total of 180 employees.

“I am delighted that TID Informatik and SCHEMA will be working even more closely together in the future. Through integrated software solutions and services, we can offer a unique platform for digitization and automation of product and service information,” explains Robert Schäfer, founder and Managing Director of TID Informatik GmbH.

“We are pursuing the same strategic goals together and complement each other perfectly,” emphasizes Marcus Kesseler, founder and Managing Director of the SCHEMA Group.

“Digitization and Industry 4.0 is based on professionally created, digitized and integrated product and service information. Together, we can offer our customers a unique product and service offering.”

What is SCHEMA?
The SCHEMA Group was founded in Nuremberg in 1995 and is a medium-sized software manufacturer with more than 130 employees. The SCHEMA Group produces component content management and content delivery solutions for editorial offices that create product-related content. Software from SCHEMA helps companies to describe complex products and to produce and distribute these descriptions on different media.

The XML editing system SCHEMA ST4 is one of the most widely used systems for the modular creation of documentation, package inserts and marketing materials. The system covers all areas of creation, versioning, variant control, translation, administration and publication of product-related content – from authoring support during input to the finished layout for the print catalog.
The SCHEMA Content Delivery Server offers companies a standard solution for automatically distributing intelligent information created in editorial systems to end users in a targeted and context-specific manner. This ensures that exactly the right information arrives automatically on mobile devices.

SCHEMA’s software solutions are used by more than 500 customers in the mechanical engineering, automotive, information technology, electronics, medical technology and pharmaceutical industries. Customers such as ABB, Agilent, Andritz, Bentley, Bombardier, Bosch, Bundesanzeiger, Carl Zeiss, Caterpillar, Daimler, Datev, Doppelmayr, General Electric, KSB, MAN, Miele, Österreichische Bundesbahnen, Philips, Porsche, Roche, Schaeffler Group, SEW Eurodrive, Siemens, SMA, Toyota, TüV, Voith and Wincor Nixdorf and many others rely on SCHEMA systems.
