« back to the overview

BBT has acquired the products of Basel-based IT Surplus GmbH as of January 1, 2024. IT Surplus is known in the Swiss healthcare sector for its three software solutions specializing in scanning and text recognition: surplusCAPTURE, surplusOCR and surplusREADER. The acquisition will take retroactive effect from January 1, 2024.

The Rooter software provider is expanding its expertise in scanning technology and ensuring the continued existence of the applications that are also used by existing customers. The teams at BBTIndividual, the core system for processing the health insurance business, have therefore long been very familiar with the Surplus solutions. Thanks to many years of practical experience, BBT was also able to convince itself of the high quality of the programs.

«The takeover guarantees the business continuity of the Surplus products as well as their maintenance and further development», says Walter Capozzolo, CEO of BBT. «Both our existing and new customers who work with the Surplus applications can build on a sustainable partnership. The future of the products is assured and innovation is also guaranteed».
