Enable U, in collaboration with Vortex Capital Partners, acquires JNet. The combination of both parties creates a strong, independent market leader in interconnectivity services and integration software in the Netherlands, with a very strong position in the public sector, education, healthcare, energy, telecom and finance.
Enable U and JNet are convinced that together they form the ideal combination for realizing the ambitions of the future. By standardizing the integration issues in approach, architecture and delivery, the combination of Enable U and JNet is able to deliver scalable solutions. These solutions have a shorter lead time, lower costs and involve lower risk.
Connections can be reused faster and easier and new standards can be supported even better and faster. In addition, Enable U and JNet are joining forces to manage the Connections from the integration platform, which will further improve the service.
Frank Arts, CEO of Enable U, sees a perfect match in JNet and Enable U: “Just like Enable U, JNet is a true integration specialist with an extensive track record. They have developed a particularly strong position within local authorities with their own resources. The management attaches great importance to quality of service and has deep technical knowledge. We are a perfect match.”
Karl de Boer, Director of JNet: “With Enable U, we end up in an organization that is prepared for further growth and that can showcase our products and services in existing and new markets. Moreover, we speak the same language and we have the joint ambition to be the very best integration specialist in the Netherlands and the surrounding area.”
Evert Jan de Groot, Partner at Vortex: “The founders and management of JNet have developed a solid and high-performance integration platform with a good customer base. With a growing demand for secure connections and increasing relevance, we see enormous growth potential for this combination.”
Through further standardization, more reuse of links in combination with a rapidly growing need in the market, we expect to be able to make improvements in efficiency in the coming years and to play a relevant role internationally.
