20 July 2021 2 min. read

Four experienced consultants in the Netherlands – Aernoudt Bottemanne, Daan Leenders, Roy van de Kerkhof and Gerwin Woelders – have joined forces to launch a new consultancy firm: η!Transformers.

Based in Nijmegen, η!Transformers focuses on the intersection between business consultancy and technology implementation. “Having been active in consultancy for many years, we noticed that there is a ‘gap’ between management consultancy and IT consultancy. We seek to fill this gap with our ‘business technology consultancy’ offering,” Bottemanne explained.

Bottemanne gained extensive experience at among others IG&H and at software companies OutSystems and Oracle. The other founders have gained experience at NovioQ and Scanmar (Leenders), NovioQ, OutSystems, SAP and IBM (Van de Kerkhof) and RVO, Blueriq en IG&H (Woelders). Bottemanne and Woelders lead the firm’s daily operations.

η!Transformers will focus its services on four areas. For starters, advising clients on their digital strategies – “How can they grow, innovate and work more efficiently using smart technology and methods, such as OpenEXO.”

η!Transformers’ second proposition focuses on “selecting the right technology platforms to fit the client's vision for the future,” spanning more traditional software such as Microsoft and Salesforce, low-code platforms such as Veritran, Quidgest and OutSystems, and specialised software for certain industries such as Mambu for financial services institutions.

In addition to vendor selection and implementation, η!Transformers also takes into account facets such as (composable) architecture and regtech (regulatory compliance technology) – to ensure that all software remains adaptable in the future and fits within current laws and regulations. “This is important, because there is only one thing certain in life, and that is: change,” said Bottemanne.

Beyond consulting, η!Transformers will offer solutions on a ‘as a subscription’ (SaaS) basis, such as an AML solution that “gives up to 65% less false positives than other solutions” in the market, and a patient-centric EHR that is “more pleasant for staff and provides patients with a better experience, while operating at significantly lower costs than current providers.”

The co-founders bring a wealth of years of experience in these fields to their new venture. “Collectively, we have delivered more than fifty projects in the digital transformation landscape, both in the private and public sector.”
