TotalSoft, one of the leading providers of business information systems in Central and Eastern Europe, has successfully completed the migration of its solutions on a new, robust, and state of the art technical infrastructure provided by Deutsche Leasing, with direct impact on 20 international subsidiaries. The project continuously supported by TotalSoft became a “role model” for the German company that will continue to migrate other applications to this new infrastructure as part of a Global IT Modernisation Programme, named Phönixx.


During the past years, Deutsche Leasing has constantly increased its IT investments in order to achieve a modern technical infrastructure with full virtualisation, that can be easily administrated. TotalSoft was selected to be the first software partner to migrate its solutions on this new infrastructure, as part of the Global IT Modernisation Programme Phönixx. The project had a high level of complexity because it required the alignment of Charisma Leasing, Tableau BI solution, and other satellite applications provided by TotalSoft to the new infrastructure, which can be translated in thousands of hours of analysis, consultancy, and development. In addition, several solutions available in the new technical infrastructure provided by Deutsche Leasing, such as Identity Governance, Messaging Systems or Virtualisation, had to be integrated with Charisma.

The successful completion of this massive project has turned it into a “role-model” for future migrations and opened the path for new software projects that can be delivered by TotalSoft, such as upgrades or implementations of new features and applications.

“It was a huge effort from Deutsche Leasing, TotalSoft, and other third-party vendor teams, who worked together for more than one year in achieving this result. The unmatched support provided by TotalSoft has demonstrated once again that our long-term partnership became the technological spearhead in the leasing industry. More than 80 employees were involved during the migration weekend and the successful completion of the project proves that Charisma Leasing is a flexible, scalable, and adaptable solution. Charisma is being used in all our international subsidiaries, supporting our business operations day by day globally”, said Otto Schmitz, CIO International at Deutsche Leasing.

After 15 years of collaboration with Deutsche Leasing and following the implementation of Charisma Leasing in 22 countries worldwide, from China to Brazil, North America, and Canada, as well as in most European countries, Charisma Leasing is a standard group solution for Deutsche Leasing.
