Leading developer of software and technology solutions for smart information

Quanos Solutions offers a comprehensive software and technology portfolio for smart information. Quanos’ offering enables customers to realise substantial cost and time savings, increase process efficiency, drive profitability of aftersales and service businesses, and address core digitisation requirements.

Quanos is the innovation and market leader in its industry and serves a global and continuously growing customer base. Its software platform is used across various industries such as mechanical engineering, information technology, electronics, financial services, MedTech and pharmaceuticals.

IK Partners acquired the majority of the Company (formerly SCHEMA) in November 2018 from its founders in a primary transaction. Under IK ownership, Quanos acquired the highly complementary add-ons TID Informatik in 2019 and Docware in 2020 – now together under the new brand Quanos Solutions.
