Waterland’s acquisition of Swyx Solutions


Private equity investor Waterland has purchased Swyx Solutions, a provider of unified communications solutions to mid-sized companies throughout Europe.

Swyx is a leading unified communications software solutions provider and developer. The company offers leading edge communications and collaboration solutions to SMEs. Swyx integrates and connects all communication channels such as voice, instant messaging, video and email with company-relevant process applications. Solutions can be run directly via the client’s existing infrastructure on premises, via a partner cloud service or based on the cloud service provided by Swyx.

As one of the market leaders in Europe, Swyx has a two-tier goto market approach with more than 1,200 authorised specialist trading partners at local level. The Dortmund-based company with locations in the United Kingdom and France also sells complimentary equipment to accompany its software solutions.

Swyx was exclusively advised by Q Advisors, a global investment banking boutique located in Denver and San Francisco specialising in technology, media and telecommunication (TMT).
