Palaiseau – In April 2009 Rhapso secured a new funding through I Source and OTC AM, its two private equity shareholders. This capital helped making the acquisition of Neugebauer Ingenieurbüro, the activities of which are organized around the PC-Topp solution.

Thanks to its customers and over years Neugebauer Rhapso GmbH has been able to launch and to develop a very comprehensive Scheduler Engine for both corrugators and transformers. It combines the power of an expert solution with the benefits brought by a Web Server Application. PC-Topp obviously complements Rhapso EmaPack MIS, designed for the packaging industry.

"Combining Rhapso and Neugebauer Ingenieurbüro triggers the emergence of an European hub of services, servicing both the packaging and the printing industry; we are clearly able to provide our customers with breaking through solutions bringing  added productivity & efficiency to their organizations", says Bruno Joseph, Rhapso CEO.
