Madrid, October 13, 2021 – In its commitment to continue its growth into the leading digital transformation group in the market, VASS has announced a merger with ECENTA , a German consulting company specializing in Customer Experience solutions on SAP CX technology (Sales, Marketing and Commerce) and whose main market is the United States.Founded in 2000 and headquartered in Walldorf, Germany, ECENTA has grown into an international force in the field, with 10 offices on three continents.Its staff of 220 professionals are experts in the implementation of complex projects for numerous clients across a variety of industries.“We are very pleased to welcome to VASS such an entrepreneurial and extraordinarily talented team as ECENTA, which will provide a wide range of advanced solutions in the Sales, Marketing and Commerce environment worldwide,” says VASS President Francisco Javier Latasa.
He also notes that “ECENTA fits perfectly with our growth strategy due to its presence in important markets such as the United States and for operating in a 100% off shoring model with development centers in Romania, Latvia and Singapore, shaping the next phases of our international growth”. In addition, it represents a complementary specialization to the value proposition that we offer in VASS, who highlights this new acquisition in the strategic plan VASS@400 “with which the company expects to have a turnover of 400 million euros in 2025”.According to ECENTA’S CEO and co-founder, Thorsten Wewers, “Joining VASS will give us the infrastructure to help our clients scale faster, offer a broad solution portfolio to address the challenges of digital transformation and take advantage of the great international talent pool”.
This plan is backed by private equity firm OEP (One Equity Partners), which joined VASS at the end of 2020 and has extensive experience in supporting scaled growth and expansion. In fact, last July, with the support of OEP, VASS announced the creation of T4S Advance Solutions, a company specialized in “advanced topics” on SAP-based business processes, and merged seamlessly with Comunytek, a company specialized in advanced systems and innovative products focused on wholesale banking and capital markets.
