Dolphin and Hanse Orga Group: A Winning Combination for Employees, Customers and the Industry

  By Dr. Werner Hopf Today I am very proud to share the news that Dolphin has joined the Hanse Orga Group, a highly-regarded, award-winning global financial automation solutions and consulting firm. This is a huge and exciting opportunity for everyone at both organizations, as Dolphin becomes a substantial and valuable addition to this growing entity and will jointly deliver our leading technology and process solutions to enterprise customers across the globe. Since our founding in 1995, Dolphin has continuously evolved. As an employee-owned company, we built a unique company culture and we established a steadfast commitment to work-life balance. These two initiatives were just as important as ensuring that our valued customers were successful in implementing SAP solutions for accounts payable and accounts receivable processing and data volume management. For the past 22 years, we have adhered to a blue print for “smart growth” and we’ve worked hard to earn and maintain our reputation as a strategic business partner to both SAP and our customer base. As we looked to continue our growth – both globally and in terms of the solutions we are able to offer our customers – we realized that in Europe and Asia Pac, Hanse Orga Group had built and grown its organization in remarkably similar fashion, albeit on a larger scale. It proved itself in financial supply chain management and in 2004, created a subsidiary model to foster and support international growth. This model was very attractive to Dolphin. So today, we combine two highly respected and like-minded software and consulting firms in the SAP space, with highly complementary offerings.  We are joining forces because it is our desire to grow and be able to serve our customers with a broader set of financial automation solutions. We now have a much broader footprint across multiple geographies, with more scale, expertise and experience. Being part of this group makes us more valuable to our respective and joint customers and further sets us apart from our competitors. As part of the Hanse Orga Group, we envision some terrific career and “cross training” opportunities for current and prospective employees of both organizations. We also anticipate significant cross-selling opportunities for both companies in the areas of Treasury, Accounts Payable, Accounts Receivable, and General Ledger.  The Data and Document Management solutions that Dolphin delivers today will continue to provide an important platform upon which our joint customers can better manage system performance, ensure governance and compliance needs are met, and reduce the overall cost and complexity of the IT infrastructure. While Dolphin and Hanse Orga have known each other from being in the SAP ecosystem for many years, we’ve also shared a mutual respect, as well as a common vision for ensuring employee, customer and partner success. As part of Hanse Orga Group, Dolphin is able to instantly increase both agility and scale and we look forward to many more years of continued growth and success in creating value for customers. Today marks a major company milestone, and I receive great satisfaction in now being part of a vibrant, committed and growing group of more than 450 professionals working in offices around the world.  Under the Hanse Orga Group umbrella, Dolphin will continue to serve as a leading business performance improvement partner for companies running SAP. To each and every Dolphin employee, customer and partner, I cannot thank you enough for your support and dedication to our company.  I am proud to have led our company to this point. I am incredibly excited to continue in my role as head of Dolphin as part of Hanse Orga Group and also happy that our leadership team remains intact. The journey we have taken has been thrilling and at times unpredictable.  Today, it continues with a new infusion of energy, talent, ideas and opportunities. I am glad to have each of you by my side as we take these next new steps.
