AMERIA - Digital technologies of the future thanks to Companisto

Increase in company value from
EUR 8 million to EUR 115 million

Albrecht Metter, a passionate entrepreneur and visionary, has written an impressive success story with AMERIA, which is not only driving the digital revolution at the point of sale, but also positioning Companisto as a pioneering platform for equity financing in Germany. Albrecht Metter's vision is the breakthrough of the virtual promoter with AMERIA.

The origin: AMERIA's pioneering achievement with the Virtual Promoter

Metter founded AMERIA in 2001 as an IT project consultancy and recognised the potential of digitalisation early on. The result of this vision? The ground-breaking Virtual Promoter - an 84-inch screen with intuitive gesture control.

Financing through Companisto: a milestone for AMERIA

AMERIA raised a total of EUR 2.5 million via Companisto in two impressive rounds in 2016 and 2017 to open up the market and further develop the Virtual Promoter. This capital not only made it possible to realise the vision, but also impressed well-known customers such as Porsche, Haribo and many DAX companies. The patented solution proved to be a sales driver by intensifying customer loyalty. However, AMERIA did not rest on its laurels with the success of the Virtual Promoter. Customers expressed the desire to network additional devices, and so the vision of a technological platform ecosystem that can be controlled entirely via the cloud was born. As an official SAP partner, AMERIA offers scalable solutions for optimised customer interaction worldwide with a specially developed and patented cloud solution.

AMERIA's leadership in the market: revolutionary touch-free solution

AMERIA built on its previous successes and responded appropriately to the special and challenging situation that occurred globally at the beginning of 2020 and had far-reaching consequences: the coronavirus pandemic created new requirements and AMERIA responded by developing the Touchfree Solution, a touch-free control system for interactive screens.Further proof of the company's progressiveness and flexibility. Touchfree Solutions are highly innovative as they offer a revolutionary response to the increasing demand for hygienic and contactless technologies in various application areas. The key to their innovative strength lies in the integration of the latest sensor technologies, which make it possible to carry out interactions without physical contact. This has become enormously important, especially in times of global health crises. In addition, Touchfree Solutions also enable improved barrier-free accessibility, as they allow people with different abilities to interact with technology more easily. The originality of these solutions therefore lies not only in their ability to improve hygiene standards, but also in their inclusive nature, appealing to a wide range of users and fundamentally changing the way we interact with technology. The challenges posed by the coronavirus pandemic not only required rapid adjustments, but also innovative solutions. In this context, AMERIA proved to be a pioneer and is now the market leader in the field of touch-free gesture control. AMERIA's Touchfree Solution went beyond the development of a simple touch-free control for interactive screens and established the company as a leading player in this dynamic market segment.With its products, AMERIA manages to make interaction a touch-free experience and offers a colourful portfolio of products and multimedia solutions for this purpose.
