OnGuard and Credit Tools have announced they are to merger. The merger will strengthen their European credit management software solutions. The new name of the organisation will be announced at a later stage. The merger will optimise the innovative capacity so that the organisation can continue to fulfill its strategic pioneering role for customers in the entire order-to-cash process.

The new company will be located at the existing office locations in Nederhorst den Berg and Zaltbommel. The merger will not cause any redundancies. Bert van der Zwan, former CEO of OnGuard, will be appointed as CEO and Pim van der Hagen, former CEO of Credit Tools, will be appointed as COO of the new company.

Bert van der Zwan: “The two companies are a perfect fit. The merger means we will benefit from a substantial increase in economies of scale with regard to product development as well as regarding the go-to-market. We look forward to building an innovative and successful future together with Credit Tools”.

Pim van der Hagen: “I am very excited about this combination of the two leading credit management software companies in the Netherlands. Together, we will be able to realise our global ambitions.”
