“As the demands from clients to deliver full-service offerings increase, mergers like this one between Webcredible and Inviqa are likely to be more common in the future. Companies are looking to consolidate not only skillsets and capabilities but also client rosters. In this case, both Webcredible and Inviqa are able to offer an expanded consultancy offering to their clients who include some of the UK’s most recognisable brands.”
Webcredible CEO and founder, Trenton Moss said: “We’re super-excited to be joining Inviqa. More and more of our clients are looking for us to provide development capabilities, and gaining access to Inviqa’s developer teams will be hugely beneficial for ourselves and our clients.
