NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 1- Pan-African telecoms group, Liquid Telecom, has announced a strategic acquisition of the Middle East & African operations of Quattro Business Solutions (QBS) – a leader in the fast-growing ecosystem of Microsoft Dynamics partners.

The acquisition will allow Liquid Telecom to innovate and enhance its digital services offerings.

QBS is an official indirect Cloud Solution Provider for Microsoft Dynamics and currently supports over 800 partners in 25 countries.

This purchase gives Liquid Telecom the ability to be a well-rounded Microsoft partner, offering deep capability on Dynamics 365 in addition to Office 365 and Azure.

“This acquisition is core to our strategy to deepen our cloud service offerings by bringing award-winning Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions to our digital ecosystem – enhancing the competitiveness of African enterprises at a global scale and is in line with our mission to build Africa’s digital future,” said David Behr, Group Chief Digital Officer at Liquid Telecom.

Businesses today need a diverse set of digital solutions to ensure they are successful in digitally transforming themselves.

With the QBS offering now added to its stable of digital solutions, Liquid Telecom has positioned itself as the digital service provider that will support its partners through a seamless digital transformation journey.

“We are convinced it is in our Gulf & African partners best interest to have a strong partner like Liquid Telecom to accelerate their Microsoft cloud business. The acquisition will not affect any operations for current business partners, and business agreements with partners will continue as normal with regards to their platforms, prices, and the people that they are currently engaging with,” said Michael Hartmann, CEO of QBS MEA.

“We are thrilled about this acquisition and what it means for the future of Liquid Telecom. We will continue seeking out strategic partnerships that help us achieve our goal of building the continent’s digital future,” concluded Behr.
