Landsteinar Netherlands has become a part of K3 Business Technology Group PLC, a UK listed company.

Landsteinar, which has offices in The Hague, was established in 2001 and is a leading distributor of Microsoft and LS Retail software solutions. It also holds the worldwide rights to software modules specifically designed for Inter IKEA System B.V. (“IKEA”), the global home furnishings business. Landsteinar has a strong domestic and overseas customer base, with over half its customers based outside Holland. In total, the business has some 40 customers, supporting 300 stores across 12 countries.

K3 provides market-leading, Microsoft-based software solutions to mid-tier retailers and manufacturers. The Retail Software Division of K3 is the world largest reseller of LS Retail and Microsoft’s leading reseller of Dynamics (formerly Navision) software in the UK. The Manufacturing Software Division is a reseller of SYSPRO products, which is the acknowledged market-leading software for mid-market manufacturers. K3 is a member of Microsoft’s Inner Circle, which is reserved for its top 60 sales partners worldwide. 

In 2004, K3 acquired retail software provider, Alpha Landsteinar Limited, which now comprises the Group’s Retail Software Division and the acquisition of Landsteinar Nederland BV is considered by the Company’s Board to be entirely complementary since both companies market and support the same Microsoft Dynamics based retail software solution.

Being part of K3 will further strengthen Landsteinar by means of access to additional resources, wider range of expertise and stronger connections with Microsoft, which will in return, provide better support and services to the customers. 

The former owners of Landsteinar are now shareholders in K3 Business Technology Group PLC. The present management of the company will stay in place and the vision of Landsteinar, “Enabling retailers to achieve their full potential” remains unchanged, as does the mission “To be a partner for ambitious retailers by delivering high quality software solutions and expertise”.
