New Signature, a Microsoft-focused solution provider, has announced it acquired Dot Net Solutions out of the UK.

The former, which provides platform and directory services, systems management and cloud computing, was Microsoft’s 2014 and 2015 US Partner of the Year, while the company it’s acquiring had the same recognition in 2014 in the UK.

In North America, New Signature says that the acquisition will bring enhancements to application migration to Azure, application development and business transformation.

The deal is also meant to help larger customers with multinational operations.

The company’s Canadian subsidiary has offices in downtown Toronto.

In its statement, New Signature hinted at further acquisitions, although more oriented in Europe.

For now, the companies will keep separate business structures but partner in best practices.
