Creating instant converged IT and unified communications channel opportunities whilst enhancing Microsoft capabilities
Enreach, one of Europe’s fastest growing unified communications (UC) companies providing innovative contact technology backed by investment company Waterland, further strengthens its cloud productivity credentials with the addition of cloud solutions provider DSD Europe and its sister company CloudLand (‘DSD’). DSD is a high growth provider of IT, security and other cloud products to over 5,000 active resellers across Europe, through its leading cloud marketplace.
The combination of DSD and Enreach unlocks opportunities to cross-sell compatible products and share joint expertise to the benefit of resellers and customers across both businesses. The acquisition is a significant step in Enreach’s growth strategy towards digital transformation services, supported by the accelerated convergence of IT and unified communications in light of remote working and cloud-based collaboration market trends.
Stijn Nijhuis, CEO of Enreach: “Following the recent acquisition of Go2theCloud, a Microsoft Cloud Service Provider, the acquisition of DSD enhances the opportunity to provide our existing resellers with a one-stop-shop solution for all digital transformation needs their customers have. DSD provides the required scale and expertise we needed to help execute our strategy and quickly scale new business for integrated productivity tools and services. As an established and fast-growing partner of Microsoft and cloud marketplace of software solutions to IT resellers and MSPs across Europe, we immediately identified a unique strategic fit with Enreach. We are therefore very pleased to welcome DSD to our group.”
Integrated Productivity offering
Founded in 2009, DSD Europe was the first to enable the digital distribution of many software brands. After launching their in-house developed cloud marketplace DSD has rapidly developed into a leading provider of digital software for IT resellers and MSPs, with a large focus on the Microsoft eco-system.
DSD will enhance the Enreach portfolio towards an integrated UC- and Productivity Cloud Services offering targeted towards Enreach partners, starting in the Netherlands but with significant new channel opportunities in France and Belgium.
The company will continue to be based in the Netherlands. Thijs van de Moosdijk, CEO and co-founder of the company, will continue to look after existing DSD partners and help to drive new growth initiatives going forward in the Netherlands and the rest of Europe alongside his experienced management team, reporting directly to Terry Aurik (CEO Enreach NL) and Martin Classen (Chief Product Officer Enreach).
Van de Moosdijk said: “DSD is an established market player with a strong track record of rapid expansion both in existing and new markets and has a meaningful multi-country presence in Europe. Our own-IP license cloud marketplace through which IT resellers and MSPs can offer software to the end user on a SaaS basis, allows for easy purchase, activation and management of software and cloud services and will help facilitate additional growth for Enreach partners. With the IT and Telco channels converging, becoming part of Enreach creates an opportunity to help our resellers add telco services to their portfolio in an easy way. This results in those resellers becoming the one-stop-shop ICT provider for their customers. With more than 40 software and cloud software providers on our cloud marketplace we offer highly personalised service to our partners with whom we develop strong relationships. Something that matches perfectly with Enreach “working wonders” for all of its customers.”
