Avanade has agreed to acquire QUANTIQ, a London-headquartered Microsoft Business Applications-focussed systems integrator and the only Microsoft Partner in the UK that can sell, implement and support the full Dynamics stack in the cloud, hybrid-cloud and on-premise.
The acquisition will significantly increase Avanade’s Dynamics 365 capabilities, offering clients deeper expertise in customised, end-to-end business transformative solutions across all markets. Together, they will become the leading Microsoft Dynamics-focused enterprise in the UK.
With an emphasis on Dynamics 365, Power Platform and Azure, QUANTIQ will build on Avanade’s existing cloud-based Microsoft Business Application offerings – a key strategy for the company. The acquisition will add approximately 300 new professionals to Avanade’s existing Business Applications team.
Through the combination of QUANTIQ’s ERP customer experience and Avanade’s offshore engineering capabilities and broad expertise across the Microsoft platform, clients will benefit from enhanced solutions that will help accelerate digital transformation across all industry sectors.
Andy Gillett, general manager for Avanade UK and Ireland, said: “Microsoft continues to make strong investments in Dynamics 365 as a key pillar of digital transformation. With QUANTIQ’s strong reputation as a trusted Microsoft partner, we see a huge opportunity for Avanade to quickly scale up to meet the growing need for solutions that help organisations realise much needed business efficiencies, agility and resilience, and also help overcome barriers to growth.”
Stuart Fenton, CEO of QUANTIQ, added: “QUANTIQ is excited to be joining Avanade, a business that shares QUANTIQ’s commitment to clients, employees and partners, as well as the belief in the power of Microsoft technologies to drive business transformation. Avanade represents an opportunity for QUANTIQ to expand its client offerings, making use of its entire range of technologies and service capabilities, as well as gain access to a global network of Dynamics professionals to help serve our international client base.”
