Our business model contributes to society
As one of Denmark’s leading software companies, we are helping to promote the digitalisation of society, which will be of crucial importance for future economic growth and welfare
Digitalisation is transforming the world by facilitating our work, increasing our knowledge and helping us to make better use of resources.
Systematic A/S develops software and system solutions for customers within the public and private sectors. All our customers have a need to be able to integrate, compile and analyse huge volumes of complex data – often in critical situations.
Our systems for defence, the intelligence services and the emergency services, for example, provide an overview and improve safety for the people charged with looking after us, and in this way our solutions contribute to a safe and secure society for everyone.
Systematic’s vision is: Together we are transforming society with exceptional software that creates more possibilities and a better world for everyone. At Systematic, we make a difference.
Our key customers comprise the Danish healthcare, social care, and social services sector, defence forces in Denmark and abroad, the police and intelligence services, libraries and educational institutions and the offshore energy sector.
Today, we are the largest privately owned software company in Denmark, and our solutions are sold to more than 50 countries. Every day, more than half a million people worldwide use our software and services.
Systematic has about 800 employees based at its head office in Aarhus, Denmark, in addition to which we have offices in Copenhagen, Australia, Canada, Finland, Germany, New Zealand, Sweden, the United Arab Emirates, the UK, Romania and the USA. Altogether, Systematic has 1,100 employees.
Systematic would not be where it is today without its skilled and highly qualified employees. Highly educated employees are in demand in the IT sector, and we are taking responsibility to ensure that Denmark is educating and attracting the necessary labour and know-how. We are doing this through our partnerships with educational and research institutions, where we contribute to the teaching and research which will benefit society as a whole.
The profits we generate are re-invested in innovation and the development of new solutions for the benefit of the society at large.
In addition, we support a number of worthwhile causes, which we believe are in line with the areas where Systematic is active.
Every year, we support, for example, the annual IT Camp for girls at Aarhus University, which aims to encourage more girls to choose an IT education.
Systematic was involved in establishing the international Joy of Reading award, which recognises initiatives aimed at combating illiteracy. The Joy of Reading Award was presented in June 2019, and will be held again in June 2021.
Every year, Systematic is also involved in naming the world’s best new public library. This happens with the Public Library of the Year award, which is presented in collaboration with the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA). In 2019, the award-winner was Oodi, the new central library in Helsinki, Finland.
Systematic supports cultural life in its local community, and therefore provides funding for ARoS Aarhus Art Museum, Aarhus Theatre and Concert Hall Aarhus. Moreover, we are also involved in supporting esport. As the main sponsor and co-owner of AGF Esport, Systematic helps local talents to grow and develop personally and professionally.
Systematic provides financial support to various other projects, associations and foundations. Defence and the healthcare sector account for a significant part of Systematic’s business, which is why it is natural for us to support projects within these areas. Systematic supports, for example, the Danish Veteran Foundation, while our department in the USA supports the Danish Wounded Warriors Project (DWWP).
Our business model is described in more detail in the Management Commentary for 2018/19.
