About
KMD A/S

For more than 40 years, KMD has played a key role in digitizing the Danish welfare state, helping make Denmark’s public sector one of the best run, most efficient and highly digitized in the world.

Decades of experience in the public sector mean that KMD is also able to handle even the most complex IT projects the private sector can muster.

KMD’s position as one of Denmark’s leading IT and software companies is based on insight; insight that has its roots in and is anchored in Denmark’s public sector, but that now benefits the private sector as well.

The majority of our business revolves around software development, as we create and deliver IT solutions for the local government, central government and private markets.

With main sites in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, and Aalborg, KMD has some 3,000 employees and generated revenue of DKK 4.7 billion in 2013.

KMD is majority-owned by funds managed by private equity firm Advent International, while Danish pension fund Sampension and KMD’s management hold the remainder of its stock.

Supporting the Welfare State

For more than 40 years, KMD has played a key role in digitizing the Danish welfare state, helping make Denmark’s public sector one of the best run, most efficient and highly digitized in the world.

KMD has developed and currently operates more than 400 IT systems that support the Danish welfare state and accompany Danes from cradle to grave. Each year our systems handle billions of kroner, equivalent to more than 25% of Denmark’s GDP. Key social security benefits such as family allowance, maternity/paternity pay, sickness benefit and state pensions are paid through systems developed by KMD.

Our enterprise management systems also handle the finances of many local governments, and each month a million workers in the public and private sectors receive their salary through our payroll systems. Many local governments and private companies have also chosen to have KMD handle parts of their administrative burden, such as payroll and human resources.

The Future is Digital

KMD constantly strives to create new digital shortcuts, and we see it as our responsibility to contribute initiatives and solutions that support and develop Denmark’s welfare system.

The public sector faces significant challenges: a smaller number of workers need to help a larger number of people, and budgets need to stretch ever further.

KMD views welfare technology and digitization as an important part of the solution, simultaneously improving public services and releasing resources in the sector.

Partner for the Private Sector

Decades of experience in the public sector mean that KMD is also able to handle even the most complex IT projects the private sector can muster. We now offer a wide range of services to private companies and organizations.​

By outsourcing tasks such as operation and maintenance of IT systems, payroll and HR administration, and printing to KMD, companies can focus on their core business, strategic development and innovation.

An Attractive Workplace

KMD’s 3,000 employees are its key asset. Our IT experts and business specialists are national leaders in translating complex processes and legislation into simple and effective IT solutions that make life easier for our customers and their employees and customers.

KMD is known as a great place to work. So that we continue to live up to our customers’ requirements, we aim to remain one of Denmark’s most attractive IT employers with the strongest specialist teams and the most challenging and complex projects.
