Fusion5 has acquired BPR Solutions, in a move that establishes the New Zealand-based business as the largest NetSuite practice on both sides of the Tasman.
Established in 2002, BPR Solutions was one of the first NetSuite certified Solution Partners in Australasia, with offices in Auckland and Sydney.
Terms of the acquisition will see BPR founder and owner Simon Ede join Fusion5 as a Senior Executive, focussed on developing Fusion5 NetSuite sales.
With all BPR staff now on board at Fusion5, the boosted NetSuite team is close to 30 people.
Fusion5 CEO, Rebecca Tohill, believes the acquisition of BPR is a reflection of the success of NetSuite in the market and the widespread move to cloud for enterprise applications.
“Simon and his team give us the critical mass essential to substantially grow our NetSuite capabilities,” Tohill says.
“As well as their deep knowledge of core NetSuite, they have expertise in areas we haven’t made headway into yet.
"BPR also brings across a number of innovative NetSuite add-on solutions to add to our growing portfolio of IP vertical solutions.”
According to Fusion5 Director of NetSuite, Grant Robertson, the purchase of BPR also adds more than 30 NetSuite clients, split evenly across New Zealand and Australia, to the company’s growing list of customers, which include SurfStitch, Venerdi, Digital Video Technologies, Aotea Machinery and Phoenix Distribution.
BPR is Fusion5’s second major acquisition already this year, having recently purchased the Microsoft Dynamics CRM and SharePoint practices of Koorb Consulting.
As reported by Reseller News, adding Koorb’s CRM team to the Fusion5 CRM/CX pillar, immediately positioned the company as one of the leading Dynamics CRM partners in New Zealand.
According to Tohill, bringing BPR on-board pushes Fusion5’s portfolio out to over 700 customers and 280 staff across nine offices.
