Valtech has acquired Evident, a B2B digital consultancy firm.

Digital increasingly permeates every aspect of the B2B sector. With the industry confronting greater complexity than at any other point in history, businesses wisely invest in their digital experience. They’re looking for digital solutions to make interactions more innovative, quicker, and more intuitive.

Valtech has already established itself as a leader in the commerce and B2B sectors, and with the addition of Evident, the company is poised to become a B2B digital leader.

From strength to strength

Regarding the acquisition, David Gompel (Valtech EVP, Europe) said that Evident and Valtech’s businesses are fully complementary from a technological standpoint. He went on to say he was delighted to welcome the Evident teams to Valtech.

Evident, based in the Netherlands and Portugal, has more than twenty years of expertise creating innovative solutions for B2B customers such as NCOI, Vanderlande, Atlas Copco, Aalberts Industries, and Mazars.

Leading B2B firms like Linde, Henkel, Grundfos, and Wavin already see Valtech as a crucial digital partner. Valtech’s B2B footprint in the European area worldwide is reinforced by uniting the acquisition.

Positive sentiments about the acquisition

Evident’s strong ties to Microsoft Azure and Intershop enhance and broaden Valtech’s technological collaborations, which currently include SAP Hybris, commercetools, VTEX, Optimizely, and Salesforce. Leading analysts have named Valtech one of the most crucial commerce services providers.

The addition of these B2B experts is expected to boost Valtech’s already outstanding worldwide commerce presence.

Ferry Meijndert, the CEO at Evident, said he looked forward to the pairing, adding, “The timing of us getting together couldn’t have been better, given the growth momentum in the B2B market.” Herbert Pesch, founder and CCO at Evident said the cultural match between the companies feels excellent from the beginning.
