TakeItNow.com -the first Dutch online computershop- sold to ACES Direct by iMerge.nl
Ebusiness investor iMerge divested TakeitNow.com, the first Dutch online computer shop, founded in 1998. ICT-supplier ACES Direct has purchased per 18 april all shares in TakeitNow.com from iMerge.
This results in the market consolidation of the two leading computer ebusinesses, where ACES Direct has a strong position in the B2B market (larger SMEs and government), and TakeitNow.com is a leading player in the online B2C market (and smaller SMEs). The focus of TakeitNow.com will stay unchanged on service, good advice and attractive pricing. Takeitnow will keep its independence as a separate division within ACES Direct. Synergies will be realized in backoffice and consolidation level: financial management, logistics and warehousing, and web development.
The divestment of TakeitNow.com fits in the strategy of iMerge to focus completely on the global roll-out of its core-businesses:
Takeitnow.com - the first online computer shop
