The Harris Computer Corporation (“Harris”), a daughter of Constellation Software Inc. (“Constellation”) and mother
company of SIV.AG, has publicised the 100 percent acquisition of mquadr.at software engineering & consulting GmbH. A
respective agreement has been signed by the companies. mquadr.at is a leading European software company for digital
self-service solutions in the telecommunications sector. The company will continue to operate independently and help in
growing the shared corporate business development.
With the acquisition of mquadr.at, the Harris Group is extending its own expertise by adding solutions for Internet
service and telecommunication providers (ISPs) as well as valuable development knowhow in the area of user-friendly
consumer software for leading operating systems. As part of the larger company structure, SIV.AG will profit from this
expertise as well. mquadr.at offers software solutions with which customers in the telecommunications sector can reach
significant cost advantages via intelligent self-service. mquadr.at is the European market leader in this field.
Customers include, among others, A1 Telekom Austria, Swisscom, Magenta Telekom, o2 Telefònica, UPC, Proximus,
NetCologne (see also: detailed
references and sales figures of mquadr.at
). The Viennese
company will continue to act autonomously.
Member of a strong international network
The business activity of the Austrian tech company will continue the same way as before, so there will be no changes
for the customers and employees of mquadr.at. To ensure this, the Harris Group relies on the existing and experienced
management team on site in order to realise the future company strategy and economic goals together.
“It is great that we, as the Harris group, are now also represented in Austria by
mquadr.at. mquadr.at fits into the portfolio of both the Harris group and the SIV.AG very well. I am looking forward to
the cooperation, the shared business development and the opportunity to participate and learn from each other”,
says Bryce Cooper, President of Harris Utilities Group.
“For the SIV.AG, the takeover is an important strategic step that is connected to a
vast shared potential for growth. mquadr.at has years of experience and a strong network in the area of
telecommunication. That is a business sector on which many utility companies already focus as part of the non-commodity
business. With mquadr.at as an established company, we can support the increasing professionalisation in this field
together. This way, both sides gain access to completely new markets.”, says Dr. Guido Moritz, chairman of
“The employees of mquadr.at have outstanding knowhow in the areas of application
development for the mobile platforms iOS and Android as well as Windows and macOS. The software they develop is the
benchmark in their field. This knowledge is an important part of the further expansion of the company-wide skills
within the SIV group, from which both customers and staff will profit equally.”, adds Milan Frieberg, Head of
Business Development of SIV.AG.
“mquadr.at as part of the Harris Group will be a member of a strong international
network, which is the right platform for our ambitions of growth and also offers us new access points to knowledge and
technologies. Furthermore, this integration offers us stability and security, so we can continue with research and
development to refine our products in the quickly changing business field. In addition to our existing customers, this
opens up an even wider market potential.”, comment Markus Pöhl and Tanja Klärner, the management team of
mquadr.at has established itself as the leading expert in Europe for innovative self-service software regarding
modems, home networks and smartphones. Internet service providers (ISPs) and telcos form the target audience for the
cutting-edge solutions, which they in turn deliver to millions of their consumers. The
core product m2suite
allows the users to manage their home network including their Internet access completely
independently. This way, the ISPs reach massive reductions of service costs (especially for service desks) as well as
an increase in service quality (reduced customer churn) and lasting user education.
In the 20 years of its company history, mquadr.at has made a name for itself especially by delivering highest
quality products, technology expertise and quick project realisations. This has established mquadr.at as a reliable
partner for innovation for over 50 customers in the telco sector.
