Lucas de Clercq acquires JDM Software, the software developer of PeterConnects Attendant for Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Microsoft Skype for Business. As the owner, de Clercq takes on the role of CEO and will focus on broadening the product portfolio for Cisco and Microsoft. The central themes of product development focus on offering reachability, context and control over communication. The popular product ServiceDesk for Cisco will also become available for Microsoft Skype for Business later this year. JDM Software will also focus on international expansion into Italy, Spain and the United States aiming to replicate their current success in the Benelux, France, Germany and UK markets.
De Clercq has occupied a number of managerial positions in the ICT market working for Digital Equipment, Compaq Computers and Microsoft. During his career with Microsoft, de Clercq was part of the management team in the Netherlands and the Western European HQ OEM team.
Lucas de Clercq on the takeover: “I’m thrilled about the opportunities for JDM Software and our partner community. One of my most significant drivers is innovation and the way organisations can use technology to optimise their communications and ultimately their business. I’m looking forward to working with our existing and new partners to help organisations to enable meaningful connections with their customers.”
JDM Software believes in enabling meaningful connections. The company offers reachability, context and control over communication with a rich selection of communication solutions based on Cisco and Microsoft. JDM Software has developed a series of products which have become an indispensable addition to Cisco Unified Communications Manager and Microsoft Skype for Business. JDM Software has an extensive partner network of leading resellers throughout Europe and is active in the Netherlands, Belgium, Luxemburg, Germany, UK and France.
JDM Software is the developer of PeterConnects Attendant which has enabled the company to capture a large market share in the Benelux (more than 80% percent of the Cisco Unified Communications Manager deployments). This has made PeterConnects Attendant the default product for the Dutch, Belgian and Luxemburg markets. You can find more information at www.jdm.nl
