Liaison Technologies , a data management and business-to-business (B2B) integration services provider, and Anilinker Oy , a European integration services provider that has been linking B2B trading partners across Europe since 1991, intend to combine operations to serve multinational companies.
The combined company will operate internationally as Liaison Technologies. Corporate headquarters will remain in Atlanta, with European headquarters in Tampere, Finland, and a regional sales and professional services office in Amsterdam. As a result of the merger, Liaison adds 350-plus new customers in 28 countries.
The company will immediately offer a complete suite of consulting and implementation services to go along with its message delivery platform, focusing on meeting the unique localization needs of multinational customers. As a full-service integration outsourcer, Liaison will offer turnkey services across North America and Europe for customers seeking an end-to-end solution to their integration and data management needs. Liaison also will offer e-invoicing services to European customers, including qualified digital signatures required by some EU member states.
"On the strength of a record year in sales and profitability in 2007, Liaison was able to take this opportunity to expand its footprint in Europe," says Bob Renner, CEO, Liaison. "Building on our initial European acquisition in 2005, we are certain this merger with Anilinker will help us better serve the fast-growing European integration services and solutions market."
