Templafy Acquires Veodin and SlideProof, Adding Berlin Office

August 15, 2018

Templafy, a global leader in enterprise template management and document creation, announced today that it has acquired Berlin-based Veodin, making Veodin’s popular ‘SlideProof’ add-in part of Templafy’s enterprise communications productivity and governance platform.

SlideProof is a PowerPoint add-in designed for management consultants & professionals to streamline presentation creation with improved visual quality.

Templafy and Veodin each offer essential tools in the document creation ecosystem and already service some of the same customers, including Big 4 auditing firms. Templafy recognizes that the SlideProof tool is relevant not only for consultants, but also for boosting document creation productivity in all industries.

Templafy is growing quickly, quadrupling new revenue and doubling its staff numbers in just the past year, which now also includes Veodin’s team.

The merge will mean a more streamlined customer experience for Templafy and SlideProof’s users. The skilled team from Templafy’s new Berlin office (formerly Veodin) will continue to focus on developing and commercializing productivity tools for Templafy customers and future customers of the combined entity.

“Adding Veodin’s popular SlideProof tool for PowerPoint to Templafy’s enterprise communication productivity platform improves the overall productivity offering for enterprise customers around the globe. With Templafy’s new Berlin office, we also look forward to better serving our German customers with the help from our new colleagues as we expand in that region.” says Templafy’s CEO, Jesper Theill Eriksen.

Jan Mechtel will continue as the Managing Director of Templafy’s German entity, managing the German office and contributing as co-founder of SlideProof with his knowledge of productivity tools for Microsoft’s Office productivity suite.

“Templafy is the perfect match for us and SlideProof. Templafy is extremely fast at building a strong enterprise customer base and joining forces allows us to focus on what we do best: boosting productivity for knowledge workers around the globe”, adds Jan Mechtel, former CEO of Veodin.

Dr. Tanja Emmerling, Principal and Head of the Berlin office of High-Tech Gründerfonds: ” HTGF joined Veodin in 2012 as a seed investor and is pleased to have accompanied Veodin in its development leading to this important merger.”

In February 2018 , Templafy secured US$17.2 in Series B funding, led by Insight Venture Partners, with participation from London-based Dawn Capital and existing Series A investors SEED Capital, Preben Damgaard and other private investors.
