Accenture buys CRMWaypoint to bolster cloud portfolio

Accenture plans to combine CRMWaypoint's staff with its newly minted cloud applications team, which delivers cloud services for the likes of Salesforce, Workday, Google and ServiceNow.

Accenture has scooped up another company to beef up its Cloud First Applications team.

The systems integration and outsourcing giant said Monday it has acquired CRMWaypoint, a supplier of cloud advisory and technology services in the Netherlands.

Founded in 2006, CRMWaypoint has an exclusive focus on Salesforce, offering cloud tools for sales, service and marketing.

Accenture plans to combine CRMWaypoint's staff with its newly minted cloud applications team, which delivers cloud services for the likes of Salesforce, Workday, Google and ServiceNow, among others.

"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, head of Accenture's Cloud First Applications team in the Netherlands.

The CRMWaypoint deal is a logical follow up Accenture's acquisition of Cloud Sherpas in September 2015. Founded in 2007, Cloud Sherpas was a global cloud advisory and technology services company specializing in optimized cloud implementations for the likes of Fortune 500 businesses.

Similar to CRMWaypoint, Cloud Sherpas had especially strong ties to Salesforce.com CRM cloud delivery operations on top of a multi-million dollar investment in ServiceNow's IT service management business practice.
