We are particularly pleased with the synergistic nature of our alliance with IMG

The Information Management Group (IMG), a global provider of innovative business engineering services for SAP solutions, today announced a strategic alliance with ICM.S, a leading Italian IT service company, which is a division of ETHICA Consulting Group. The alliance will strengthen SAP service and support for IMG and ICM.S customers in Italian, European, American and Asian markets. Both IMG and ICM.S focus on enterprises with international business models and SAP system rollouts and upgrades. IMG’s alliance with ICM.S will expand IMG activities in Italy while ICM.S will strengthen its presence worldwide through IMG subsidiaries throughout Europe, North America, and Asia.

"With ICM.S, we have a partner for the Italian market that will support us – and in particular our clients – when we undertake change and implementation projects in that country,” said Prof. Thomas Gutzwiller, CEO of IMG. “Economic globalization continues to increase and companies demand expert consultants who can deliver services on an international scale and who understand regional conditions,” continued Gutzwiller. “Our alliance with ICM.S will enrich our consultancy network and provide our clients with world-class consulting expertise of the highest standards in key global markets. Moreover, the ongoing expansion of our partner network gives our international clients access to regional resources without incurring undue expenditures for costly local infrastructures."

"We are particularly pleased with the synergistic nature of our alliance with IMG,” noted Ilio Sanguin, CEO of ICM.S and president of ETHICA Consulting Group. “While ICM.S will benefit from IMG's international structure and experience, we will contribute proven, detailed knowledge of the Italian market and high-level competence in specific industries and applications,” continued Sanguin. “Partner networks, if built on complementary strengths and on loyal win-win relations, are not only the clients’ future -- they also represent a strategic consulting business challenge. Our international customers require our service not only in Italy but globally as well. By collaborating with IMG, ICM.S can offer its international clients this service on a much wider scale."

For IMG's clients, this collaborative agreement signifies a further step toward the international provision of high-quality consultative services. Currently, IMG has offices in Switzerland, Germany, Austria, Poland, Romania, the United Kingdom, the United States, Japan and China. In addition to ICM.S, IMG's strategic partners include Magnus Asia, Unilog, SAP AG, and the Institute for Business Informatics at the University of St. Gallen.
