Crystalloids BV and Crystalloids Innovations BV jointly announce today that they are merging into one company to become a leading IT organisation focused on Google Cloud Platform and cloud marketing. Operating under the name Crystalloids, the company keeps their Dutch offices in Amsterdam and Rotterdam and is headed by the CEO Richard Verhoeff.
“From the beginning, both companies were working closely together but where Crystalloids was focused on the more traditional software approach, Crystalloids Innovations was focused on innovations and the cloud. This limited our synergy,” says Quintus-Filius Grens, founder of both Crystalloids and Crystalloids Innovations and shareholder of Crystalloids Holding. “To get the most out of both organisations we had to merge the two into one innovative company with a clear focus.”
The merger will leverage each company’s particular strengths: Crystalloids' expertise in predictive marketing and data engineering and Crystalloids Innovations' know-how in software development and machine learning using the Google Cloud. The new Crystalloids will help companies to create better customer experiences and build marketing technology so that their business life can be less about programming and more about decision making.
"The idea of Crystalloids Innovations now (re)defines our view on technology, process and people in a successful engagement with our vast and long-lasting customer base. Bright, shining empowerment from within," says Jan Willemsen, co-founder of Crystalloids and shareholder Crystalloids Holding. "Hopefully new Innovations will cross our path over and over again, in order to stay in touch with the ever-evolving world of marketing engineering for the benefit of our clients. It’s great when a plan comes together. I love it." he continues.
“Lesson learned: sharing, attention and focus are needed to let something grow,” says Richard Verhoeff, the founder of Crystalloids Innovations. “Crystalloids Innovations would not have been so successful if, at one hand, we had not share the name, knowledge and values it stands for and, on the other hand, the possibility to focus and have full attention on the goals of (Crystalloids) innovations.”
The combination of these two companies creates an organisation with the necessary expertise, scale and financial strength for the future. This transaction accelerates the visions of both parties to deliver technology that helps businesses become data-driven en enables them to make better use of their time, money and workloads.
