“Over the last year and a half, we have taken multiple steps in the further development of the international footprint of the Softline Group. With our SAM multi tool strategy and the related expansion of our partner network we are able to support organisations to select and use the right technology to fit their needs. This new partnership with ITAMS offers us the ability to strengthen our presence within the UK, enabling us to get closer to our existing customers in territory as well as address the UK market as a whole. In ITAMS we have found a partner that is skilled, knowledgeable, and most important, customer centric. Our partnership gives us joint access to a large pool of resources needed to continue our growth with international customers all over Europe. I am very much looking forward to working with the ITAMS team.”, says Dennis Montanje, Managing Director Softline Solutions Northern Europe.
“We are delighted to have found in the Softline Group an international team with both deep SAM skills and which is very aligned with our own methods, practices and culture, but also with a perfectly complementary geographic coverage and understanding of the changing SAM and ITAM tools market.
Combining the capabilities of the No.1 European player and the No.1 UK player in SAM Managed services according to the ITAM Review, with both organisations featuring prominently in Gartner’s recent list of SAM Services companies clearly gives us a joint leading position in the Northern European market.
This a very exciting move, further complemented by both companies being aligned in their independence from the volume licensing supply chain”, says Paul Sheehan, founder of ITAMS.
