In recent years, RecruitNow has become the market standard in the Netherlands for staffing agencies looking for ATS systems. To achieve international growth ambitions, it has now found the perfect partner in zvoove. The German group is the European market leader in SaaS solutions for staffing agencies and cleaning companies. Over 4,500 customers and 55,000 end users deploy its products to manage a million job applications, a workforce of 700,000 employees and an annual wage stream of 12 billion euro. Zvoove employs 400 people at 13 locations across Europe.
Knowledge and drive
Not only did the company’s SaaS solutions make RecruitNow appealing, but it was mainly André Polderman and Paul Wilkens’ knowledge and drive that sparked interest. By joining forces, it is possible to offer even more innovative solutions. Oliver Muhr (CEO zvoove): “This acquisition strengthens our European market leadership. It matches our growth strategy, through which we want to combine the best knowledge and technologies within the group. We are excited about the expected synergy benefits and exchanges between our new colleagues.”
At the start of this year, RecruitNow and zvoove signed the letter of intent. At the start of June, the deal was closed. The deal team looks back on a pleasant but intense process. “We very much enjoyed working with RecruitNow, and with André Polderman in particular. The owners had done their homework and the information that they provided us with was perfect.” André Polderman is also satisfied. “I am very happy with how the process went. Marktlink kept a close eye on things, which contributed to this success. We are looking forward to working with zvoove. Our strong independent position in the ATS market is a strategic choice, which we will vigorously pursue within zvoove. The added value of this important step is the increase in scale. We expect innovative synergies between the companies within zvoove Group. That is where RecruitNow can play an important part.”
