Following the signing of the agreement in November the assets have
been transferred per 1st December 2004. The new company will be
wholly owned by Swiss Post and will be known as DocumentServices AG.
With the acquisition of Document Services from Telekurs, Swiss Post
aims to improve its market position by offering customers a
comprehensive document management service combined with other postal
services. The offering will include preprinting, print & dispatch,
scanning/document processing and electronic document management.
Swiss Post has offered a similar service - HybridPost - for the
past three and a half years. There are plans to integrate HybridPost
into DocumentServices AG. With HybridPost, customers can send data
electronically to Swiss Post, for example for invoices. The documents
are printed directly, packaged and sent for processing. This service
is ideal for billers and administrations.
Document Services AG has a workforce of around 120 and aims to
position itself in the comprehensive document management field. The
acquisition of Document Services from Telekurs will not entail any
job cuts. The company will remain in Wallisellen, the current
location of Document Services. HybridPost is based at Zurich's
Sihlpost. The restructuring of letter processing (REMA) includes
plans for integration into the Letter Centre East (Zurich-Mülligen)
as of 2006.
The same press release will be issued by Swiss Post.
