Norwegian service management software vendor Asolvi has bolstered its position in the UK market with its acquisition of Vantage Computing; its second in two months.
Based in Hertfordshire, Vantage Computing is a cloud-based developer that specialises in management solutions for MSPs.
Trondheim, Norway-based Asolvi currently operates across 35 countries and focuses on the field service market.
Its CEO Pål M Rødseth has had an acquisitive three years.
This latest deal marks Asolvi's fourth acquisition in three years, and is part of its strategy to focus on growth outside the Nordics.
Three of those acquisitions have been in the UK: Vantage Computing, Purpose Software and Tesseract.
Rødseth claimed that this expansion is all part of his strategy to target the "largely under-served SME market" in the UK.
"Previously a competitor of Purpose Software, which we acquired last month, Vantage Computing complements our Evatic solution as it will help reach more customers that are smaller in size," he said.
He claimed his roster of acquisitions will give UK partners and customers "enormous efficiency and productivity gains for providers of managed print and document services".
