Capture teams up with Lufthansa Systems Hungária
After a decade of fruitful collaboration between Capture and Lufthansa Systems Hungária, we have taken our joint efforts to the next level. We decided to contribute to Lufthansa's initiatives of moving towards non-core services and solutions. Taken Lufthansa Systems resources and expertise, Capture is providing sales and marketing support with its growing network of clients in the DACH region.
Airlines had to quickly adapt to new demand behavior and change their steering processes along with their IT-solutions, following the adverse effects of the pandemic. There was a sudden need of urgent repatriation flights and rapidly growing demand in the cargo business. Lufthansa Systems, one of the leading global aviation IT providers, responded swiftly and supplied many airlines with adjustments in their flight planning, flight operations, and commercial solutions. This rapid reshuffling of activities kept Lufthansa Systems Hungária, the parent company’s 450-strong technology and delivery center in Hungary, very busy in this turbulent period. Their efforts to ensure business continuity for all airline customers became a common purpose, expressed by the motto, “we are in this together, and we will get out of this together”.
The company adjusted to changes and prepared itself for the post-COVID operating environment, called the New Normal. Lufthansa Systems Hungária had to change its working methods, which, considering that remote work and home office were already part of their day-to-day operation, went smoothly. They continued to provide services aiming to produce added value in terms of enhanced efficiency, reduced costs or increased profits for airline companies. While the company took advantage of its agile and flexible approach to make required changes, Lufthansa Systems Hungária decided to go ahead and open its new Szeged office in SE Hungary in March of last year, setting its ambitious growth targets even higher.
Common values create an extensive domain of collaborative opportunities with existing business partners. The Austro-Hungarian software company Capture GmbH has experience with a wide range of Broadcom products and ServiceNow applications and has been providing highly skilled IT experts for Lufthansa Systems Hungária for over ten years. Now a tighter strategic cooperation is in the focus, based on the existing customer relationship network of Capture and the extensive expertise and development capacities at Lufthansa Systems Hungária. The primary goal of the collaboration is outsourced software development and application operation in the DACH region, which both partners are familiar with.
“We’ve worked with Capture for about a decade now. They have the network, the salesforce, the business acumen and the expertise to make this happen, and we have the scalable development and operations capability – the perfect symbiosis,” Michael Herrmann said. According to Gábor Oláh, Founder & CEO of Capture GmbH, "our long-time partnership with Lufthansa Systems has proved that we have seamless cooperation between our teams, and our journey now takes a new direction with the search of new business opportunities jointly". As Michael Herrmann concluded, “this is a kind of market opening which enables us to serve customers outside of aviation. At the same time, Capture can expand its IT development capacities with our help.“
