CloudSense bolsters vertical reach with Impactive buy

CloudSense has acquired financial and telecoms IT consultancy Impactive as it looks to continue its growth

CloudSense has acquired the financial and telecoms IT consultancy Impactive as it looks to expand its foothold into key verticals and continue to fuel the growth it has been able to establish on the back of rising interest from customers in hosted applications and services.

The cloud integrator and Salesforce platinum partner has already established a presence in the UK and on mainland Europe and Impactive will become a wholly owned subsidiary but remain a legal entity working under the CloudSense brand.

Richard Britton, CEO and co-founder of CloudSense, said that both firms had a shared view of the market and it had managed to enjoy decent growth since it started and Impactive would help continue that momentum.

“From the very beginning our focus has always been on having the best talent and Impactive has the high calibre individuals that will help develop our business and deliver transformation through the cloud for our customers," he said.

In response Ian Chick, director and co-founder of Impactive, said that it was a good time to be acquired into the CloudSense family as the interest in the technology was "sweeping the market leading companies we work for".
