EnteGreat Acquires Technology Solutions Company's SAP Consulting Practice
11th May, 2008
EnteGreat, a leader in manufacturing business technology consulting, today announced its acquisition of the SAP Consulting Practice of Technology Solutions Company (TSC) (Nasdaq: TSCC). The move substantially augments EnteGreat's existing SAP business and positions the company for growth in emerging markets. EnteGreat brings a unique blend of manufacturing expertise and technology systems integration to the new unit, while TSC's SAP Consulting Practice brings comprehensive consulting services, products, and unmatched project management expertise. By adding best-of-breed SAP consulting and project management capabilities to EnteGreat's existing SAP services, the newly expanded company will enable customers to align their enterprise business processes to their manufacturing operations more efficiently and cost effectively.
With the acquisition closed, EnteGreat has begun integrating the SAP Consulting Practice into its business. Due to the highly complementary nature of this combination there will be no significant changes to the structure of the company or division. Customers of both companies will continue to receive an uninterrupted flow of services and the transition is expected to be seamless. The SAP Consulting Practice will operate as a wholly owned subsidiary of EnteGreat. It will continue to serve high-technology and Industrial Machinery and Components (IM&C) markets, in addition to expanding into new sectors, such as Life Sciences, Food and Beverages, and Mill Products. What will change is that customers now have access to the combined expertise of both companies at once and stand to gain from the resulting comprehensive benefits.
"When we combine the strength of EnteGreat in manufacturing execution with the enterprise solutions strength of TSC's SAP Consulting Practice, we believe we can deliver the industry's most comprehensive technology solution to our manufacturing customers," said Rob Gellings, Chief Executive Officer of EnteGreat. "This acquisition represents a major step forward in our long-term strategy to expand into the enterprise solutions market and other high-growth segments. Now more than ever EnteGreat is poised to directly align enterprise business processes with manufacturing operations, in order to ensure the success of companies across major industry sectors."
Gellings concluded, "The acquisition also complements our existing MES business which we serve through our longstanding relationships with a variety of software partners."
"This acquisition brings together two companies with similar cultures and complementary offerings," added David Wasson, former Senior Vice President and Practice Lead of TSC's SAP Consulting Practice and now President of the new wholly owned subsidiary, EnteGreat Solutions, LLC. "We are extremely excited about the opportunities for growth ahead. We are adding EnteGreat's manufacturing execution expertise to our portfolio of superior end-to-end SAP solutions. By accessing EnteGreat's deep skills, products and capabilities in the manufacturing space we will be able to take advantage of new market opportunities as we continue to serve our existing customers."
An important component of the deal involves the merger of complementary intellectual property (IP) that includes both companies' SAP accelerators, including EDGE(TM), CMF(R) and MPF(TM). The combined IP further differentiates EnteGreat with technology that accelerates customers' time-to-value while reducing the risk associated with deploying SAP solutions.
Both organizations are distinguished by their experienced management and integration consultants. EnteGreat's responsive structure and efficient business model has helped it deliver superior value to its Fortune 500 customers since 2000. With the acquisition, the company now boasts the infrastructure, architecture capabilities, enterprise implementation services and support capabilities of larger consulting firms. Its more experienced and efficient teams of consultants deliver a lower total cost-of-ownership solution with shorter delivery times.
