Join the Dots join forces with InSites Consulting to accelerate community offering
Having been named High Growth Business of the Year for 2018 by the British Chamber of Commerce, we’re delighted to share news of our continued growth in 2019. We have taken an exciting leap forwards by joining forces with InSites Consulting, one of the world’s most innovative insight agencies!
Following a partnership with private equity firm Mentha Capital in October 2018, the purchase of Join the Dots marks InSites Consulting’s fourth acquisition in just 18 months, after onboarding Australia-based Direction First, South-Africa-based Columinate, and creative crowdsourcing agency eÿeka, headquartered in Paris.
Adding our own offices in Manchester, New York and Singapore to the group extends InSites Consulting’s geographical presence to 10 client service offices across five continents. We will enter the UK, USA and Singapore markets under the name Join the Dots | InSites Consulting, while the InSites Consulting brand name will be used across other markets.
Now €50M+ in revenues and 450+ people strong, our collective ambition is to become the ultimate next-generation insight agency offering the scale, footprint and expertise global clients are looking for, while at the same time staying true to our flexible, innovative, people- and technology-driven way of working.
“Join the Dots has long been admired for their progressive work in the qualitative space. As global markets are shifting towards the reality of having more open and ongoing connections with consumers, we’re eager to leverage the wealth of expertise Join the Dots brings to the table, including trends, foresighting and social intelligence. By joining forces, we are taking a giant leap forward in becoming the market leader in online insight communities and in shaping the future of ongoing consumer dialogues.” says Kristof De Wulf, co-founder and CEO of InSites Consulting.
“We are very enthusiastic about benefiting from a more global dimension, not only gaining access to the InSites Consulting Global Community Moderator Network, but also being able to service our existing clients better, and from various different markets,” says Quentin Ashby, CEO of Join the Dots. “This larger-scale workforce will allow us to accelerate the development of our unique technology suite, and certainly aid us in enhancing our insight ecosystem. We are looking forward to an exciting journey together, combining our complementary strengths to shape the future of the industry.”
