KPN has acquired an IT services provider as it looks to strengthen its offering to the healthcare and public sector markets in the Netherlands.
The operator has paid an undisclosed sum for Cam IT Solutions, which provides 50,000 workspaces within hospitals, healthcare institutions and other public organisations.
Much of the company’s offering is based around a private cloud platform called CAMCUBE.
Cam Chief Executive Willem Drijver said the two companies would look to offer combined services and develop new solutions for its target markets.
KPN Chief Commercial Officer Frank van der Post said Cam’s “highly specialised” knowledge in healthcare would strengthen its position in the sector.
The acquisition comes as KPN continues to look for ways to improve its struggling enterprise division, which continues to post declining sales.
Revenues fell 6.4 percent to €1.1 billion in the first six months of the year as businesses continue to move away from buying traditional telco services.
The operator said sales of IT-related services to large corporates were growing, but were offset by legacy network offerings.
Its venture arm has also been busy in the healthcare space this year, investing in two startups.
KPN Ventures invested an undisclosed sum in Sensara, which produces lifestyle monitoring services for senior citizens, in April.
