The company’s acquisition of New Verve marks the latest step in its expansion programme, having opened offices in the UK, US, Italy, Portugal, as well as a development centre in Uruguay, in the last few years.

In an announcement, atSistemas said it seeks to continue growing off the back of a successful 2021, which saw the firm close the year with 23% year-on-year growth and a turnover of €97.3 million (£84.3 million). 

“With the acquisition of New Verve Consulting we have significantly strengthened our commitment to becoming a global partner of the Atlassian ecosystem, as well as further positioning our company in the UK market, both of which are main priorities in our global strategy,” said José Manuel Rufino Fernández, co-owner and CEO at atSistemas.

“We are confident that the numerous synergies between New Verve Consulting and atSistemas will allow us to offer the maximum value to our customers and the greatest possibilities of joint growth for our professionals.”

The company said its aim is to accelerate its growth in the UK, which is the European market with the highest volume of businesses in the IT sector, followed by Germany and France. 

“With our union, we will reach a greater number of clients in both geographies, increasing our capabilities to lead large projects and offering better opportunities to our employees," added Miguel Ángel Sacristán Salvador, co-owner and CSO at atSistemas. “With the acquisition of New Verve, atSistemas takes an important step in the relationship with our customers in the UK, incorporating local services from the Atlassian ecosystem."

Founded in 2011, New Verve’s consulting team specialises in Atlassian software and is the only channel partner of its kind in Scotland. Alongside its core business focus, the company has expanded its solution portfolio with the development of proprietary products such as Crumbs, a customer management solution for Atlassian’s Jira platform. The firm’s portfolio will now be incorporated into atSistema’s wider offering.

“It’s fantastic to see New Verve Consulting become part of the atSistemas group,” said Nigel Rochford, founder of New Verve. “Since starting the company in 2011, New Verve Consulting has evolved a huge deal and I’m immensely proud to see all of our hard work realised with this acquisition

“The team at New Verve Consulting are its greatest asset and I can’t wait to see them prosper as part of this group.”
