SDS has signed bilateral reseller agreements with Aareon UK and Aareon Netherlands.
Aareon UK will now include the SDS software as part of its tender submissions and provide ongoing support for existing clients in the UK and the Republic of Ireland. For its part, SDS will generate leads for Aareon among its 315 clients across the UK, including 40 local authorities.
Aareon Netherlands will lead the introduction of SDS products initially into Dutch ‘woningcorporaties’ (social housing providers) to help plan and manage their housing development and construction activities.
The SDS software will be offered via the Aareon Smart World portal or as an on-premise solution to customers in The Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, France, Norway, Denmark, Finland and Austria. SDS and Aareon UK will support Aareon NL with the introduction of their treasury management system and business planning software into the UK market.
As part of its focus on the Dutch housing market, SDS collaborated with the Department for International Trade, which works to promote UK exports of goods and services.
Tom Fourcade, export and investments director for Southern England, Department for International Trade (DIT), said, “The demand for UK services is out there and SDS is a great example of a business that has found success through exporting. This is a transformative win for their business, and we are delighted to have supported them on their export journey with bespoke advice, research and market introductions.”
