Merger forms the largest and most comprehensive provider of Microsoft Dynamics 365 CRM, ERP, PSA, and HCM solutions to professional services firms
Seattle, WA – April 16, 2018
SAGlobal and 360 Vertical Solutions today announced that the organizations will join forces to create the unquestioned leader in Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutions and services for professional services firms and other project based organizations. These two proven and trusted Dynamics 365 partners have won a total of seven Microsoft Dynamics Industry and Global Partner of the Year awards, and are considered to be the leading Microsoft partners in their respective disciplines. The merger is subject to final due diligence and is expected to close in the first half of 2018.
Historically, professional services firms have had to contract with multiple Microsoft consulting partners to attain the benefits of an integrated Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform for ERP, CRM, PSA and HCM capabilities. The merger of these two leaders brings together a single organization that can deliver a full spectrum of best-in-class Dynamics 365 solutions.
SAGlobal, the current Microsoft Worldwide ERP Partner of the Year, is the leading global provider of industry-specific Microsoft Dynamics 365 ERP, PSA, HCM, and Business Intelligence solutions and services for professional services organizations and other project-driven businesses. The organization has over 500 employees in 18 countries, and specializes in providing solutions to AEC firms, IT and management consulting firms, advertising and marketing agencies, and other project-driven organizations.
Headquartered in Atlanta and with offices in Houston and Eastern Europe, 360 Vertical Solutions, the parent company for AEC360 and Legal360, specializes in vertical-specific Dynamics 365 CRM solutions in key professional services vertical markets such as AEC, legal, accounting and consulting firms. With over twelve years in the Dynamics industry, the organization was a pioneer in building vertical-specific CRM solutions for business development, marketing, experience management, and relationship intelligence. 360 Vertical Solutions has won five Microsoft Partner of the Year awards, and has a strong roster of high-profile professional services clients in North America, Europe the UK, and AsiaPacific.
“As Microsoft’s cloud strategy has evolved around Dynamics 365, it’s critical that their consulting partners strategically align themselves with this new strategy”, explained Oli Gunnarsson, CEO for SAGlobal US. “We’ve long been Microsoft’s leading consultancy for ERP, PSA and HCM solutions in the Service Industries, but we recognize the need to further expand our domain expertise into the Dynamics 365 CRM solution in order to address the entire value chain of our clients. Joining forces with 360 Vertical Solutions extends our leadership position into Microsoft’s customer engagement solutions, and will allow us to help Microsoft capitalize on its growth opportunities in the Service Industries.”
“We’ve partnered with SAGlobal on joint engagements for several years now, and have enjoyed an outstanding working relationship”, stated Whit McIsaac, President & CEO of 360 Vertical Solutions. “In addition to sharing the same vertical industry focus, our organizations have developed and integrated a complimentary suite of pre-built, pre-configured industry software solutions that are implemented by the most experienced consultants available in the marketplace. This merger will allow us to offer our clients a broad set of integrated, industry-specific solutions that cover the entire value chain of our professional services industry clients. And by joining forces with a larger, multinational organization like SAGlobal, we can not only offer our employees additional growth opportunities, but provide a much broader footprint to support the global CRM market as well.”
The combined organization will have nearly 600 employees operating out of offices in 18 countries around the world, and will continue to provide industry-focused CRM, ERP, PSA, HCM, and Business Intelligence solutions to professional services firms in key vertical markets. The combined entity will operate under the SAGlobal name, but will retain key 360 Vertical Solutions brand names, such as AEC360 and Legal360.
