Managed service provider Node4 has acquired Microsoft Dynamics 365 partner TNP to expand its IT service capabilities. Together, the firms will provide an integrated, end-to-end customer experience, with cloud-led solutions that aim to improve productivity and increase agility for customers.
TNP sells, implements and supports business solutions based upon Dynamics 365 Business Central, Power Apps and Power BI. With this, TNP will enhance Node4’s end-to-end managed services portfolio.
As part of the acquisition, TNP will become part of the Node4 Group, while continuing to operate as an individual business unit with its 260 staff and consultants. Node4 says that TNP will benefit from access to Node4’s portfolio of cloud-based infrastructure services, while significantly enhancing Node4’s ability to deliver Microsoft-based business applications services.
“TNP is a hugely impressive organisation and this acquisition is an important part of our ongoing growth strategy,” said Andrew Gilbert, CEO of Node4. “Everything from its leadership and team to culture and capabilities resonates with the approach we have here at Node4. They have an ambitious and compelling organic growth plan in an important segment of the technology industry and TNP’s technical capabilities and credentials in NAV, Business Central and Power Platform ideally complement Node4’s already comprehensive portfolio of services.
“We’re confident that together we can deliver the market-leading end-to-end services that customers are increasingly looking for.”
The acquisition will expand Node4’s capabilities into the enterprise resource planning market, which Node4 estimates will exceed £2 billion in value by 2024.
“This announcement is another exciting development in the TNP story,” said Paul White, executive chairman of TNP. “It was clear from the outset that we share a common passion for delivering exceptional service and as part of Node4, we can play a major role in the ongoing growth of the Node4 business and help more customers use technology more effectively to optimise their business processes and improve productivity.”
