RevelX has agreed a partnership with Qmarkets, a US-based provider of platforms and tools that help corporates innovate like start-ups.
As part of the partnership, RevelX will integrate the solutions portfolio of Qmarkets into its innovation offerings, which will enable the Netherlands-based consultancy to provide “better advice” to its clients and help them build “innovation excellence” across their business.
Qmarkets currently goes to market with four tools: Q-Ideate (a platform for idea management across the lifecycle), Q-Scout (a tool that manages the M&A portfolio), Q-Trend (a tool that provides insights into relevant innovation trends), and Q-Optimze (a tool that drives operational excellence and continuous improvement).
Over the past period, RevelX has already applied Qmarkets’ portfolio at a number of customers, and on the back of the positive experience, the consulting firm has now formalised its partnership status.
“Qmarkets has helped us add much more value for our customers in their innovation processes, resulting in exponentially improved innovation performance. Many of our customers are ready to take their innovation endeavours to the next level – together we will create highly transparent, collaborative, and manageable processes to support our clients’ innovation goals,” said Eric de Groot, founding partner of RevelX.
Meanwhile, the partnership will see Qmarkets add RevelX to its network of ‘recommended suppliers’, which already includes the likes of Deloitte, Grant Thornton, Point B and around fifty other consultancies worldwide. “We will introduce our customers to RevelX’s growth experts to offer them first-rate strategic consultancy services,” said Michael Stilger, co-founder of Qmarkets.
Established in 2014 in Amsterdam, RevelX specialises in growth strategy and innovation work. The firm has a team of 20 consultants and has worked for clients such as Accell, ASML, PostNL, Volvo.
