London – 7th November 2018 – Rackspace® owned RelationEdge®, a Salesforce Platinum Consulting Partner, today announced its expansion into the UK to help deliver stronger business outcomes for customers by improving processes that leverage the Salesforce platform.
The rapidly growing application services portfolio is key to Rackspace’s strategy to deliver IT as a service, as the company helps enterprise and mid-market companies modernise their IT environments. Over the last two years, Rackspace has expanded its application services by acquiring TriCore and RelationEdge to strengthen its ERP application and Salesforce management capabilities. The company also established a relationship with Couchbase to deliver a fully-managed database service to customers.
RelationEdge’s launch in the UK will help organisations implement, customise and integrate the Salesforce platform for marketing, sales, customer service and business operations. Together, RelationEdge and Rackspace will deliver a complete solution for businesses looking to modernise their IT: from business process transformation and application portfolio rationalisation, to configuration, integration and management with a Process First, Technology Second® approach.
Matthew Stoyka, CEO at RelationEdge, said: “It’s an exciting move for us to launch in the UK, the first time our organisation has operated outside of the US. We know that today’s enterprises want a relationship with a company that can help them navigate their digital transformation journey from end-to-end, not a siloed approach with multiple vendors. By combining our unique Process-First, Technology Second approach to solving business problems with Rackspace’s transformation and IT as a service expertise, we will deliver an innovative customer experience to this new market from the outset.”
Warren Jonas, GM, Application Services, EMEA at Rackspace, said: “We are delighted that RelationEdge will be working alongside our UK professional services team to deliver new and complementary services that firmly establish Rackspace as the best partner for bringing customers’ IT into the modern era. No matter where a company is on their journey, we can help them achieve a future proof, end-to-end transformation across the world’s leading technologies.”
Andrew Lawson, Executive Vice President and General Manager, UK at Salesforce, said: “With a rapidly growing customer base in the UK, our partner ecosystem is a vital ingredient for driving customer success in this market. We’re excited to welcome RelationEdge to the UK as they grow their presence here, helping our customers deliver personalised sales, service and marketing at every touchpoint.”
The UK launch is the first of several markets outside of the U.S. that RelationEdge plans to expand in. The Vice President for Solution Sales at RelationEdge, Mark Emanuelson, will be drawing on his experience of launching new Salesforce consulting practices across Europe for its UK customers.
