TalentSoft, a leading European provider of SaaS-based Talent Management solutions, today announced that it has signed a definitive agreement to merge with Peoplexs. Based in The Netherlands, Peoplexs is a SaaS technology supplier that offers agile recruitment solutions.
This merger immediately creates the European leader in the SaaS-based Talent Management market with 250 employees, 100 developers, more than 600 customers, and an integrated solution for recruiting, competency management, performance management and learning.
TalentSoft’s merger with Peoplexs significantly increases its ability to serve customers Europe-wide with the immediate addition of subsidiaries in Denmark, Switzerland and The Netherlands. TalentSoft now has a direct sales or services presence in ten countries.
This merger emphasizes both Peoplexs and TalentSoft’s commitment to serving customers on a global scale and gives birth to a pure player alternative with more innovation and flexibility.
"We have been impressed by the capabilities of the Peoplexs team to develop significant market presence in the very competitive SaaS recruiting solutions market" said Jean-Stéphane Arcis, CEO of TalentSoft, "With our track record in Talent Management, and Peoplexs experienced team, we will continue to leverage our knowledge of European complexity to deliver Talent Management best practices to decentralized global organizations.”
“Peoplexs and TalentSoft teams share the same passion for Talent Management, the same commitment to customer success and the same innovation-focused company culture” said Frank Oddens, CEO of Peoplexs. “Joining Talentsoft is a fantastic opportunity for our teams to offer a fresh, innovative, alternative to the heavier and costlier solutions offered in the market.”
