Now the company has been fully integrated in the Trapeze Group. At the same time, IMS has moved to new business premises at the European headquarters of Trapeze in Neuhausen am Rheinfall, Switzerland.
In September 2012, the Trapeze Group acquired the communications specialist IMS Info Management Systems AG based in Winterthur, Switzerland, which since then has continued its operations as an autonomous Trapeze subsidiary. In the context of a careful strategy review, the Trapeze management have now decided to fully merge IMS with Trapeze Switzerland GmbH. Trapeze Switzerland GmbH retroactively took over all existing contracts as a universal successor effective 1 January 2015. In addition, IMS moved to new business premises at the European headquarters of Trapeze in Neuhausen am Rheinfall effective 1 July 2015. IMS has already left its location in Winterthur.
At the point of time of integration, IMS company manager Oskar Persano transferred his management responsibilities to Peter Schneck, CEO Trapeze Switzerland. Mr Persano is to remain within the company, continuing to support all PARITY business.
