London: Accenture has acquired Tquila UK, a leading independent Salesforce consulting services provider. This is part of a strategic move to strengthen Accenture's position as a provider of Salesforce services and cloud implementations. Tquila is one of the largest Salesforce partners in Europe and specialises in delivering cloud solutions powered by the Salesforce1 Platform. As a result of the acquisition, Tquila will become part of Accenture's Emerging Platforms business within Accenture Technology. The addition of more than 100 Salesforce skilled staff from Tquila will more than double the number of Accenture's Salesforce skilled people in the UK, making it one of the largest Salesforce capabilities in the UK with approximately 185 consultants. Founded in 2010, Tquila is a privately held company headquartered in London. Prior to this acquisition by Accenture, Salesforce Ventures was an investor in Tquila.
