VASS, a Madrid-headquartered IT consultancy, has acquired Copilot, a New York-based provider of Salesforce, cloud and data consulting services.

Founded in 2018, Copilot provides consulting in strategic roadmaps, UX optimization, custom development, data warehousing, and analytics and integration strategy, among other areas. The company – which has 23 employees listed on LinkedIn – has more than 90 Salesforce certifications. Copilot also works with AWS, Azure, Snowflake, and Tableau technologies.

The firm primarily works with clients in financial services, real estate, and tech startups.

VASS’ acquisition of Copilot will continue its North American growth and strengthen its capabilities in cloud, data, and user experience solutions. The Spanish firm expanded into the US market last year and has offices in Boston, Dallas, and Phoenix.

“This acquisition will not only enrich our strong Salesforce capabilities but also will reinforce our presence in the financial services industry in North America,” said Francisco Javier Latasa, CEO and chairman of VASS. “We are excited to work together with the talented Copilot team to continue driving growth and innovative solutions to our clients in the region.”

VASS was itself acquired by One Equity Partners in December 2020. The consulting firm has since that time bolted on IT firms at a steady clip primarily in the European market – growing its global footprint from 2,186 employees in 2020 to 4,300 people in 25+ countries today. VASS grew revenue by 58% to reach €205 million in FY 2021, with 15% organic growth.

The firm has plans to reach €400 million revenue by 2025. Part of that growth strategy includes meaningfully expanding in the world’s largest consulting market.

“Copilot adds a strong frontend in the US to the existing footprint of VASS, thus enabling the company to service North American customers with the full range of VASS' services from established delivery centers. This will lead to additional growth and diversification of the platform,” said Jörg Zirener, senior managing director at One Equity Partners.

VASS implements and services customer relationship management and enterprise resource applications, and provides technology infrastructure services.
