The Belgian software and technology company ESC enters the Dutch market with the acquisition of Qexpertise from Veenendaal. Qexpertise has 40 experts in ERP, CRM and business software. Both companies are important Microsoft and Exact partners in their region. After the addition of SDE at the end of 2021 and Net-IT at the end of last year, the group now has more than 265 technology specialists in business software, modern workplaces and e-business.

Qexpertise is an expert in all applications of Exact Software and with the help of Microsoft Dynamics 365 Business Central in combination with TRIMIT specialist in implementing organizations in the fashion and furniture industry. The 40 employees help medium-sized and large companies as well as semi-government organizations. Managing Director Pieter Jan Petermeijer will continue to manage Qexpertise and become a shareholder of ESC Holding.

“ESC and Qexpertise both have a good proposition in the Microsoft Dynamics and Exact Software market. We see this step as a great opportunity to continue this across national borders and also to be able to offer our customers ESC’s extensive service portfolio. It is very positive to be able to benefit from each other’s strengths in the future and thus serve our customers even better.” According to Pieter Jan Petermeijer.

“We speak the same language, and I don’t mean Dutch, but the language of Dynamics 365, Exact and business consultancy in general”, explains Benny Van Hyfte, CEO of ESC. “We saw a unique opportunity to combine our expertise. With more than 265 IT specialists, we can now meet the exploding demand for smart technology even better.”

“We unite leading technology and consulting companies so that modern organizations can unleash their full business potential with our help.  Together we analyse, implement and optimise digital transformation processes that pay off,” explains Van Hyfte . In addition to business applications & BI, enterprises will find everything needed for modern workplaces ranging from Microsoft 365 and cloud to cybersecurity to IT management. The e-business department builds web applications, online portals and webshops for fast-growing medium-sized and large companies.

“In addition to the complementary culture and activities within Qexpertise, it is also the ideal time to take our first international step. There is a great energy buzzing in the different teams. This is reinforced by ESC’s move into brand new offices in Gent,” concludes Robin Janssens, Investment Manager of Capital A. “We look forward to combining our expertise with our Dutch colleagues, building great solutions and continuing our growth trajectory.”
