One strong full-service partner

More and more organizations are opting for one strong full-service partner that offers high-quality solutions in the field of strategy, marketing, design, development, data and content. The merger of the two agencies creates a powerful Dutch organization that can completely unburden its clients, making it the ideal partner for digital transformations. Together they are able to offer even better, integrated solutions in a rapidly growing digital world with increasingly complex challenges.

Jeffrey Schoemaker
CEO Perplex

“Perplex and Frontis have an almost 1-on-1 match in terms of vision, culture and values; a no-nonsense approach, strong entrepreneurship and the will to continuously learn are paramount. That was of great importance to us, because we want to continue together for years to come. Based on great involvement and broad expertise, we have been making the right translation for years, in close collaboration with our clients, to the most suitable digital solutions in which the user comes first. However, we are ambitious in this and we want to grow further.”

Bundling of expertise

The merger of the agencies creates additional scale and expertise to tackle digital challenges. In addition, it supports the professionalization process, for example in the field of continuity in capacity, security and privacy and the need for 24/7 support. In order to maintain strength and flexibility, both branches in Arnhem and Varsseveld will continue to operate autonomously and for the time being under their own name.

Sebastiaan Hemink
CEO Frontis

"We have already experienced good growth in recent years, but we have the ambition to take extra steps to better anticipate the rapidly changing circumstances. We will create one leading organization with two strong branches in Arnhem and Varsseveld, from which we can serve national and international customers. We get a lot of energy from this new collaboration and look to the future with great confidence."

Strong front

The new organization has 85 employees and already largely uses the same tooling and robust (Microsoft-oriented) technology. For example, both agencies are Gold Partners of Microsoft and Umbraco, together they form a strong front and gain a leading position in the Umbraco landscape. The collaboration ensures that the agencies double their knowledge, while each retaining their own unique expertise.

In recent years, Perplex has won several awards in the field of Umbraco, the Dutch Interactive Awards and the Grand Prix Content Marketing. It is also ISO 27001 certified, the official certification in the field of information security and has its own video & animation specialists.

In addition to high-quality digital marketing services, Frontis also offers an extensive tech stack with extensive experience in the field of Microsoft Azure (cloud) services and headless CMS solutions. In addition to Umbraco, Frontis also realizes digital solutions as a certified partner in the Kentico CMS.

By bundling this knowledge, the agencies can reinforce each other both in breadth and depth of expertise.

Looking forward to the future!

Perplex and Frontis are really looking forward to this new collaboration and are looking forward to even more beautiful digital projects together with their clients and 85 digital specialists!
