beecom Services joins forces with Eficode
Less than a year after the joining of beecom Products and Appfire, beecom Services also joins an international player, opening the doors to a wide range of products and services for its customers. This marks another chapter in beecom’s success story.
In the German-speaking market, too, the use of software is increasingly recognised as a decisive competitive advantage – across all industries. This has increased the demand for both Atlassian software and related consulting and technical services. By joining forces with Eficode, we are able to meet the growing demand in the Swiss market for Atlassian solutions, cloud migrations and Agile and DevOps practices and tools.
Eficode is the leading DevOps company in Europe, driving the DevOps and Agile movement and building the future of software development across eight countries with over 400 professionals.
Eficode is an Atlassian Platinum partner in 6 countries. It provides all the Atlassian and Agile services you need — from expert consulting, cloud transformation and Eficode ROOT managed services, to training and license sales. Eficode’s experts have been certified widely in Atlassian solutions like Jira, Confluence, Bitbucket and Bamboo. With Jira Align you gain real-time visibility on team activities, alignment across your enterprise, and flexible support for Agile frameworks like Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe).
In addition to Atlassian, Eficode counts over 40 products from other vendors in its service portfolio and is thus not only vendor-independent, but also able to cover all customer needs in the areas of DevOps, ITSM and Agile Management. Through the alliance with Eficode, we are not only expanding our Atlassian competencies, but are also experiencing a boost in the further development of our own service portfolio.
Michèle Warmbrodt, CEO of beecom:
“We are delighted to join Eficode. Beecom has strong relatioships in Switzerland, and we are focused on serving them on a long term. This opportunity helps our customers with broader set of skills and products to solve their broader challenges in becoming better software development teams. The power of strong DevOps, ITSM, agile methods, and Atlassian competence gives us an excellent foundation for the future together with Eficode.”
“Eficode sees Beecom as the strong player in the Atlassian community in Switzerland. Beecom has established strong relationships with number of Swiss customers including major players from the finance, insurance and public sectors, and has become the leading expert on Atlassian consulting for the entire German-speaking market. By acquiring Beecom, we can confidently serve its customers with an even broader set of services.”
Ilari Nurmi, CEO of Eficode.
What does this step mean for our customers?
We still see the greatest value of our company in the long-standing partnership with our customers and emphasise at this point that nothing will change in the cooperation with beecom apart from access to an extended product range and an improved service portfolio. To anticipate some questions, we have summarised the most important points below:
How will this change in ownership impact me?
This is a positive change for everyone, including you. When Beecom becomes part of Eficode, we can invest more in your growth and help you with a wider range of needs. Eficode is a long-time Atlassian partner, awarded with Atlassian Partner of the Year in DevOps award for three times, and Riada, now part of Eficode, has received different Atlassian awards four times. Operating in a number of countries in Europe, Eficode and Beecom can help customers in more countries than before.
In the short term, there are no changes. You will continue to work with the people you know, and they will only become better at their areas of expertise. Your closest contact at Beecom and Eficode will keep you abreast of practical changes.
What do I stand to gain from the deal? What are the benefits to me?
As a result of the change, Eficode and Beecom together can address ever increasing needs from you. Eficode has hundreds of people that have specialized in all aspects of software development, DevOps and Cloud computing. You will benefit from broader availability of talented teams in more countries, and you can take advantage of Eficode’s managed services including Eficode ROOT DevOps platform, with knowledge from large set of technology vendors like AWS, Azure, Github, Gitlab, Jenkins, Jfrog, etc. Eficode’s team is also able to offer Application management for your custom applications.
Will service quality or policies change?
Both Eficode and Beecom continue to honor their existing agreements as stated before the date of the acquisition. We expect to continuously improve our service offering, and will communicate and agree all service changes within our service management practices with you.
Will the quote you gave me still be honored?
Both Eficode and beecom continue to honor quotes submitted to the existing and future customers for the validity periods of those quotes.
Will there be any staffing changes that might affect me?
We are not making staffing changes as part of the announcement of the acquisition. We expect to offer you an even wider variety of experts and services in the future and we look forward to identify those business opportunities together with you.
Who do I call if I have a problem or concern?
We continue to use all existing communication and support channels for the time being. We will inform you of all changes in our support and service delivery practices well ahead of time, giving you plenty of time to accommodate with those changes.
We are happy to take this step with our customers and to develop further together!
