TIE Kinetix N.V. (“TIE Kinetix”) (EURONEXT AMSTERDAM: TIE) announces today that it takes the next step in expansion of its portfolio by extending its coverage to deliver Google Search Appliance (GSA) in the Benelux. TIE Kinetix secures the existing GSA customer base from Xillio for an undisclosed nominal fee and will launch the sales of GSA products and services throughout the Benelux as well as offer support and consultancy for the secured customers.

With the secured customer base, TIE Kinetix has a strong start as a major partner for Google for Work in the Benelux market, which strengthens its position as a Google for Work partner in Europe. TIE Kinetix GmbH already services a large number of implementations of GSA, including worldwide implementations for several DAX 30 listed enterprises.

Jan Sundelin, CEO of TIE Kinetix said: “With the expansion in Germany in 2013, TIE Kinetix became an important partner of Google for Work in the DACH market. We are excited to expand the partnership with Google for Work to the Benelux market and with the agreement with Xillio we secure a strong start for this next step to execute on our strategic ambitions.”

Rikkert Engels, CEO of Xillio stated: We are thrilled to put our GSA customers in the trusted hands of TIE Kinetix.
