QBS Group buys majority share in 1ClickFactory, sharpening Microsoft Dynamics channel focus

April 24 2019

QBS Group, a Value Add SMB Distributor for Microsoft Dynamics, announced it has acquired a majority stake in 1ClickFactory, the Dynamics-focused ISV, application services, and cloud platform company.

The deal represents "a further strengthening" of their existing partnership, which has strengthened over the past 18 months. QBS became Territory Representative for 1ClickFactory in the DACH region in June 2018 – and subsequently also in Benelux January 1, 2019. 

The company’s announcement emphasized the Dynamics channel's transition from NAV to Dynamics 365 Business Central and the many challenges that businesses will face – and that QBS Group wants to help partners meet. They wrote:

Whether this is about moving existing solutions, acquiring skills and knowledge on Dynamics 365 BC or whether it’s concrete technical assistance with migrating existing customers – the tightening of the relationship between QBS group and 1ClickFactory will be a huge benefit for partners in this transformation journey.

Soren Fink-Jensen, CEO, 1ClickFactory stated:

Our deep functional and technical qualities and capabilities combined with the sales and marketing skills of QBS group plus their wide international distribution network create a great fit! The partner communities can expect stronger and more attractive offerings, including offerings around the domain of PowerApps.

In a letter to QBS Group employees, company CEO Michael Hartmann stated the following about the deal:

This will give us a very unique position in the market and more importantly, help our partners to transform to cloud and adopt Dynamics 365 and help us to get to our BHAG of 100.001 customers.

And he added:

1ClickFactory will continue the strategy they have decided and execute accordingly. What we will do, though, is see if we can get better aligned with 1CF, to increase sales even more.
