Despite the global slowdown, many companies that have excess cash are making acquisitions. Recently, Cloud Sherpas acquired CloudTrigger, a California-based cloud solution consultancy focused on helping organizations implement and customize cloud CRM solutions.
The financial terms between the two companies have not been revealed.
So how will Cloud Sherpas benefit? This acquisition offers Cloud Sherpas with the strategic and technical resources necessary to further capitalize on cloud CRM implementation and customization opportunities in North America and abroad.
"We are excited to bring CloudTrigger, with its significant business and technical expertise, into the Cloud Sherpas fold," said David Northington, CEO at Cloud Sherpas. "Carter and his team are true cloud professionals with tremendous depth of knowledge and a successful track record."
In order to achieve financial and strategic objectives, the acquisition of CloudTrigger is another significant milestone for Cloud Sherpas in its emergence as a leading cloud services brokerage (CSB).
In October, the firm welcomed former Capgemini executive Gary Diorio to lead its CRM business unit. Cloud Sherpas is a Salesforce.com Platinum Partner and is also the Google (News - Alert) Enterprise 2011 Partner of the Year. The Atlanta-based firm now has more than 3,000 customers across practice areas.
"We are thrilled to be joining forces with Cloud Sherpas, whose reputation for innovation and customer service is unparalleled among CSBs," said Carter Wigell, president at CloudTrigger, in a statement. "The collective experience of Cloud Sherpas and CloudTrigger further differentiates us as one of the few firms that have the depth of experience and technical expertise to help companies fully leverage the flexibility and functionality of the cloud."
CloudTrigger, headquartered in Southern California, has clients worldwide, including AOL (News - Alert), USA Today and Riverbed. The company has implementation expertise in Salesforce Service Cloud, and is the creator of G2Maps, a geographic mapping analytics and visualization app available on the Salesforce AppExchange.
