QBS group acquires Master VAR activities of Konica Minolta IT Solutions GmbH

QBS group expands her activities to Germany and now represents the largest global Microsoft Dynamics Partner network with close to 300 Microsoft Dynamics partners in 14 countries

Leusden/Munich, January 2016

Quattro Business Solutions (QBS group), Microsoft and Konica Minolta IT Solutions GmbH have reached an agreement, under which QBS group takes over all Microsoft Dynamics Master VAR activities of Konica Minolta IT Solutions GmbH.

QBS DACH will be the new organisation taking care of the activities related to the role of QBS group as Distributor for Microsoft Dynamics in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

This step means an acceleration in the QBS DACH investments in people and local (German language) partner services, that will directly benefit the current 50 QBS partners and will strengthen the QBS community. Next to this it enables QBS DACH to scale up and welcome and support more Microsoft Dynamics partners from Germany, Austria and Switzerland.

Based upon the planned growth of QBS DACH and other regions, QBS group will support over 400 Microsoft Dynamics Partners and ISV Partners by the end of 2016, indirectly supporting more than 40.000 Microsoft Dynamics customers.

Joop van Voorthuijsen, CEO of QBS group: “I am very proud that we have reached this agreement and now also support many partners in Germany. In less than three years we have grown our organisation to now supporting close to 300 Microsoft Dynamics partners in 14 countries. This is a great achievement and I am proud of what our team has achieved. Recent information from Microsoft shows that on average QBS partners outperform non-QBS partners, underlining the success of our network. With the addition of QBS Germany as part of QBS DACH to QBS group, we have an even stronger foundation for future success for all stakeholders; customers, partners, QBS group and Microsoft.”

Thomas Kombrecht, Senior Product Marketing Manager of Microsoft Germany: The goal of Microsoft is to consistently continue the two-tier distribution model for the Microsoft Dynamics NAV channel, which was already implemented in many other European countries. It should also be ensured that the service offering to the partners in the various countries is uniform. QBS group doesn’t interact directly with end customers and is ideally positioned to support partners in the Microsoft Dynamics area.”
