Accenture Acquires CRMWaypoint
Accenture has acquired CRMWaypoint, a supplier of cloud advisory and technology services in the Netherlands, specializing in Salesforce.com cloud solutions for sales, service, and marketing.
With the acquisition, CRMWaypoint's professionals have joined the Accenture Cloud First Applications team, which delivers cloud services for Salesforce.com, Workday, ServiceNow, Google and other pure-play cloud technologies.
"The addition of CRMWaypoint gives us access to a sizable force of highly skilled and sought-after Salesforce professionals in the Netherlands and beyond," said Peter van Tilburg, Accenture's Cloud First Applications lead for the Netherlands, in a statement. "Together we are even better positioned to meet the growing demand for cloud solutions. Our Cloud First agenda is focused on helping clients improve their business growth, agility, and competitive advantage by leveraging all of the benefits cloud can deliver."
"Over the past years we've forged a team delivering significant growth in the Netherlands, which culminated in our company being recognized as a platinum partner by Salesforce in 2015. As a next step, we're excited to become part of Accenture as this will give us even more opportunity to develop our people and leverage their skills to drive cloud adoption and implementation for leading brands on a global scale," Ton van der Meer, founder and CEO of CRMWaypoint, said in a statement.
CRMWaypoint is one of the largest Salesforce.com partners in Benelux, established in 2006 with an exclusive focus on Salesforce.com. It was one of the first official implementation partners for Salesforce in the Dutch market in early 2008. Since then, CRMWaypoint has delivered on more than 600 Salesforce projects. CRMWaypoint is serving clients both in medium business and large enterprise market segments.
Accenture was one of the first global companies to establish a strategic alliance partnership with Salesforce.com and today has more than 3,400 unique certified professionals around the world.
In October, Accenture acquired Cloud Sherpas, a provider of cloud advisory and technology services specializing in Google, Salesforce.com, and ServiceNow. It previously acquired Salesforce.com and Veeva Systems solution providers Tquila UK and ClientHouse.
