Node4 has announced its acquisition Tisski, a UK-based independent Microsoft Business applications partner.
Founded in 2011, Tisski is a Microsoft Gold Partner and Cloud Solutions Provider working with some of the UK’s largest public sector organisations, including the Ministry of Defence and the Department for Transport, as well as with public sector agencies within housing, blue light services, local government and healthcare.
The company has 184 staff, which Node4 is will retain post-acquisition, taking the Node4 employee roster to more than 1,100 people. Node4 has said it hopes the acquisition will create a strong Microsoft Centre of Excellence that has capabilities which are closely aligned across the MSFT ecosystem.
Backed by Providence Equity Partners, Tisski is Node4’s third acquisition, following the purchase of TNP (The Nav People) and Risual.
Anna Assassa, CEO at Tisski, said, “Joining Node4 is an important next step for Tisski and we’re excited by the capabilities we will have as a part of the group. Our shared values and vision have resonated as we’ve worked closely with Andrew Gilbert and the Node4 leadership team throughout the process, which made this an easy decision to make. This move will open huge possibilities for our customers as they continue to transform their businesses for the better.”
“Tisski has built a superb reputation over the past 12 years as a trusted technology provider across an extensive list of public sector enterprise customers supporting their delivery of critical public services,” added Andrew Gilbert, CEO of Node4. “We’re delighted to welcome Anna and her excellent team to the Node4 group and look forward to working closely together to bring further success to the business.”
