Accace, a leading BPO and advisory provider in the region, announces the acquisition of Interbook Kft., based in Budapest, Hungary. Accace entered Hungarian market in 2008 and in 2011 joined forces with Interbook Kft., a well established accounting company with long presence on the market since 1996.
Jiří Majer, the CEO of Accace says, “I believe, bringing Interbook into Accace Group and combining both companies’ client portfolio and staff will strengthen further its position as a major player in the BPO and consultancy services field in Hungary.”
The massive European presence of Accace helps to win over new large multinational companies as clients and accelerates the company’s growth throughout the crisis. Accace’s main clients are international companies operating throughout the entire European region, many of them blue-chip companies listed in New York, London or Frankfurt stock exchange.
Most of the clients are looking for a single contact window for the whole region, in which Accace is a very good candidate to work with, due to dynamic and flexible approaches to meet client’s need. Additionally, in the second half of 2011, Accace plans to launch tax advisory services in Hungary.
“The first meeting between the two companies was like love at first sight. Both companies have similar approaches towards clients that include quick and efficient professional services, customer-friendly philosophy and excellent work quality. Becoming part of Accace ensures the continuation of a long-time practice and growth, and is what the major shareholders of Interbook had in mind when they started to look for cooperation partners,” says István Nemecz, the CEO of Interbook.
Interbook Kft was originally the accounting department of Ernst & Young and spun off in 1996 to become an independent legal entity. Until July 2011, Interbook was owned and managed by professionals, who took active role in the company’s operation for many years. The company, utilizing the opportunities of the growing market, has shown a steady and dynamic growth. Customers of Interbook are Hungarian registered companies, subsidiaries of international corporations.
