About us

    Our vision

    An efficient and effective company makes happy employees. And happy employees make us happy. Which is why it is our mission to make your business processes work in the best possible way. By working closely with you as a client, we get to understand what solutions your company needs. But in doing so, we always maintain our role as an outsider. This enables us to view the business from a different perspective and offer the best solutions to its challenges. Our team consists of consultants who all have top-level expertise in the field of technology.

    Koen

    My training as a chemical engineer has brought me into contact with a wide range of technical companies, as well as with a wide variety of corporate cultures. The expertise I have thus gained has enabled me to develop implementation models that today form the basis of Syntrium’s working methods.

    Patrick

    My interest in applications and ERP systems began in 1987, and not long after I became the super user with an American company. On my return to Belgium the company assembled a project team for the implementation of a new logistics system (AVALON) for its distribution companies worldwide. Belgium was the pilot.

    I made the move to IFS, where I got to know Koen on one of my first assignments. We each went our separate ways but kept in touch. We both started our own consulting firms, thus expanding and developing our IFS knowledge and experience. Our visions regarding implementations ended up becoming so close that we decided to deploy them in one company. Which is how Syntrium came to be born.


    Merten

    After graduating as a Master of Science, I executed different quality related projects as a consultant for pharmaceutical companies. It was a perfect taste of different structures, different cultures and different ways of working. It gave me the confidence to start working as an Operations Manager for several years.
    I always recognized the importance of business processes and IT. To strengthen my knowledge in these fields, I obtained a MBA at ESCP Europe, graduating with a thesis about digitalization in an international bank.
    Joining Syntrium using my past experience and academical knowledge to help our clients, was a match made in heaven.

    Kurt

    During a long time, I believed Chemical engineering was my true goal in live, but it just turned out to be a stepstone on the path of my professional journey. In the end my analytical view and way of looking at things made me discover business processes and ERP systems.
    On my trip from R&D Chemist over being a Project Manager to Business Analyst, I was able to load my backpack with a large variety of information to become a Business Consultant. I discovered IFS in 2003 as a key user or SME and already came in contact with Patrick at that time. From of 2013 I worked together with Koen during a couple of IFS upgrades and business process improvement projects in my previous jobs.
    Finally in 2021 all pieces of my career-puzzle came together in joining Syntrium to support our customers in the complexity of optimizing their businesses.
