Avanade has announced that it has completed the acquisition of KCS.net and its subsidiaries (including Infoman AG). The acquisition further enhances Avanade’s Microsoft Dynamics capabilities, which include enterprise resource planning (ERP), customer relationship management (CRM), and data and analytics.
KCS.net is one of the largest Microsoft Dynamics ERP partners in Germany, Switzerland and Austria, a leading Microsoft Dynamics CRM partner and has a fast growing Microsoft SharePoint business. “The addition of KCS.net to the Avanade family is great news for clients, which will now benefit from our increased local Dynamics expertise and access to offshore capabilities as well,” says Robert Goegele, Avanade general manager for Germany, Switzerland and Austria. “With over 40 years of combined experience, we are delighted to uphold our strong track record of delivering innovative projects to our clients. With our global and local delivery capabilities, we are uniquely positioned to help clients successfully implement business solutions in their home markets and abroad.”
KCS.net has been a Microsoft Gold Certified partner since 2004 and now holds the Microsoft Gold Certification for Enterprise Resource Planning, Content & Collaboration and Customer Relationship Management. It is also a member of the Inner Circle and President‘s Club of Microsoft Dynamics for several years.
Kay Laukat, KCS.net CEO, says, “Avanade is a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX and CRM, bringing unmatched expertise on the Microsoft platform to its clients. We are excited to join forces, strengthening our combined market position and providing world-class service to our Dynamics AX, CRM and SharePoint customers.”
