Unic participates in PIT Solutions

  • Ivo Bättig

The Unic Group has acquired a substantial stake in PIT Solutions (PITS), an IT service provider with subsidiaries in Switzerland and India.

PITS was founded in 2000 and currently employs around 350 people in Rüti (Switzerland) and Trivandrum (India). PITS develops customized software solutions, especially for websites, mobile apps and e-commerce. PITS relies on market-leading software partners and is a certified partner of Microsoft, SAP Hybris, Magento and Typo3, among others. PITS serves customers in Switzerland, Germany, USA and Dubai. Selected customers in Switzerland are Bibus, BKW, EPFL, Fairgate, Frontiers, ON Running, Postfinance, SBB, Tradingzone and 3+.

Thanks to this investment, Unic has additional highly qualified capacities in software development and expands its offering with selected technology stacks. In addition to the development of e-business solutions in Switzerland and Germany ("onshore") and the nearshore development in Poland, Unic can also offer offshore development with PITS. As a result, previously unattended customer tasks can be implemented and Unic-side product initiatives can be launched.

Further growth of both the Unic Group and the PITS Group will be pursued through this cooperation.
