SDB Group develops and supplies specialist ICT solutions for the healthcare sector. In 2018, software investor Main Capital acquired a majority stake in the company, which was then known as SDB Ayton. Since then, SDB Group has made four acquisitions, aimed at obtaining the widest possible range of software services. The first acquisition was Cormel (ECD software), followed by Reports (data analytics for the healthcare sector), The Competence Group and CSS Breda (e-learning for the healthcare sector). In 2021, KindPlanner, CPM4Care and Infent were added. Turnover tripled as a result of this buy-and-build strategy. The number of employees grew from 70 in 2018 to 220 after the latest acquisition.
