Lohne and Paris /PRNewswire/ - zvoove, the leading provider of digitalization solutions for the temporary staffing and cleaning services industries in Europe, has announced its acquisition of DirectSkills, a leading provider of External Workforce Management solutions for the French temporary staffing industry. This marks zvoove's first strategic acquisition in France, solidifying its position as the dominant force in the temporary staffing industry across Europe.
