LiquidHub, the 2,000-person, Wayne-based firm that sold "digital customer engagement" services and IT outsourcing to corporate clients including Comcast, Novartis, SEI, Subaru and Vanguard, said last week it has purchased Annik, a Gurgaon, India (near New Delhi)-based "global data management and analytics solutions firm," for an unnamed price.

Annik, with offices in Warsaw, Poland; Shanghai, China; and Seattle, along with India, counts HP, Microsoft, Netflix, Nestle, and Vistaprint as clients.

"Companies need better insights to transform their customer engagement strategies or they risk becoming irrelevant,” said Jonathan Brassington, CEO and co-founder of LiquidHub, in a statement. Annik President and CEO Rahul Sahgal,  COO Sandeep Bhatia and 1,000 others will join LiquidHub under the deal. LiquidHub employs around 800 at its offices in Wayne and Philadelphia.

LiquidHub says it will combine "Annik’s capabilities around data science and data management with LiquidHub’s expert team of innovators, designers, technologists, marketers, and strategists" to help corporate clients manage customer data.

Annik is at least the seventh firm LiquidHub has bought since India-based ChrysCapital agreed to fund $100 million or more in LiquidHub acquisitions in 2014, supplanting earlier investors including Radnor-based NewSpring Capital (whose founder, Michael DiPiano, yesterday called Bucci "a super bright guy.")

LiquidHub agreed to buy Harold Hambrose's and Joe Weiss' Philadelphia digital-design firm Electronic Ink earlier this year.

LiquidHub previously purchased digital-marketing agencies Foundry9, New York, and Think Interactive, Atlanta.

LiquidHub also bought consultants Redkite, New York; Harvest Solutions, Boston and San Francisco; and ClosedWon, Albequerque.
