Pittsburgh, PA (PRWEB) August 26, 2014
Plus Consulting, one of the largest Saleslogix CRM business partners in the world, today announced the acquisition of the entire Saleslogix business operations from Australia-based Markinson Business Software Solutions.
“This acquisition represents a significant milestone in the growth of Plus Consulting,” said Steve Smith, CEO, Plus Consulting. “We acquired Markinson’s CRM business because of the strong potential for growth in the Australian CRM and APAC market overall. Markinson has a very strong team of experienced CRM consultants, all of whom will be joining Plus with this acquisition.”
The short term focus of Plus Consulting’s Australian team will be to support the current Saleslogix business and ensure every customer realizes the benefits of partnering with one of the world’s leading Saleslogix business partners. Customers will experience no disruption in services, given that the entire Markinson Saleslogix team will be in place to support them from day one. In addition to current Markinson employees, Plus Consulting plans to add employees to support the growing CRM Practice in Australia.
“Plus Consulting believes that it can provide a superior level of service and attention to Markinson’s existing customer base and find new customers in what has been a largely underserved market,” stated Dean Campbell, Plus Consulting Chief Operating Officer. “Plus Consulting intends to replicate our North American business model in Australia, making available a wide range of services to these customers, including Microsoft SharePoint, Business Intelligence and IT Security. Plus Consulting’s deep expertise in tying these systems together will provide additional value to the APAC market.”
As one of the largest Saleslogix business partners, Plus Consulting’s Saleslogix team includes some of the most senior technical experts available in the world, many of whom have been working with the product for a decade or more. The timing of the Markinson acquisition coincides with Infor’s recent acquisition of Saleslogix. “We are extremely excited about this new development,” commented Campbell. “Infor has committed to greatly increase investment in product development. Furthermore, as a global company, Infor has the ability to put huge resources behind the product to increase competitiveness and win market share for Saleslogix.”
“Plus Consulting has grown rapidly during our 15-year history by helping organizations generate customer-centric growth,” said Steve Smith, CEO. “This is primarily because we apply the business and technology acumen of our team members to world-class solutions such as Saleslogix to help our clients grow revenue and loyalty from their customers. This acquisition is extremely valuable to us, and we look forward to developing and growing our relationships in the APAC market.”
