Cloud Sherpas Acquires CloudTrigger; Expands West Coast Presence and Deepens Expertise in Customer Service and Call Center Platform

Leading Cloud Services Brokerage Makes Second Major Move This Month Aimed at Helping Global Enterprise Organizations Adopt and Leverage Cloud Technology

ATLANTA, GA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/20/12 -- Cloud Sherpas has acquired CloudTrigger, a top California-based cloud solution consultancy focused on helping organizations implement and customize CRM solutions in the cloud. Terms of the deal were not announced. The move provides Cloud Sherpas with the strategic and technical resources necessary to further capitalize on cloud CRM implementation and customization opportunities in North America and abroad.

The acquisition of CloudTrigger is another significant milestone for Cloud Sherpas in its emergence as a leading cloud services brokerage (CSB). In October, the firm hired former Capgemini executive Gary Diorio to lead its CRM business unit. Cloud Sherpas is a Salesforce.com Platinum Partner, and is also the Google Enterprise 2011 Partner of the Year. The Atlanta-based firm now has over 3,000 customers across practice areas.

CloudTrigger, headquartered in Southern California, has clients worldwide, including AOL, USA Today and Riverbed. The firm has deep implementation expertise in Salesforce Service Cloud, and is the creator of G2Maps, a geographic mapping analytics and visualization app available on the Salesforce AppExchange. The acquisition strengthens Cloud Sherpas' position in the West, bolsters their ability to service clients needing customer service and call center support, and provides key assets to enable vertical market solutions.

"We are excited to bring CloudTrigger, with its significant business and technical expertise, into the Cloud Sherpas fold," said David Northington, CEO at Cloud Sherpas. "Carter and his team are true cloud professionals with tremendous depth of knowledge and a successful track record."

"We are thrilled to be joining forces with Cloud Sherpas, whose reputation for innovation and customer service is unparalleled among CSBs," said Carter Wigell, President at CloudTrigger. "The collective experience of Cloud Sherpas and CloudTrigger further differentiates us as one of the few firms that have the depth of experience and technical expertise to help companies fully leverage the flexibility and functionality of the cloud."
