Fusion5’s latest acquisition results in largest NetSuite practice in Australasia
We are delighted to announce the strategic acquisition of BPR Solutions.
Established in 2002, BPR Solutions was one of the first NetSuite certified Solution Partners in Australasia with offices in Auckland and Sydney. The acquisition sees Simon Ede, owner and founder of BPR, joining our NetSuite team as a Senior Executive, focused on developing NetSuite sales. All of BPR’s staff are on board at Fusion5, and our boosted NetSuite team is now close to 30 people.
The purchase of BPR Solutions sees us set to dominate the NetSuite space in both New Zealand and Australia.
Rebecca Tohill, Fusion5’sFounding Member and former CEO Australia / New Zealand, says that 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,” says Rebecca. “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.”
The purchase of BPR also adds more than 30 NetSuite clients, split evenly across New Zealand and Australia, to our already strong list of customers. New customers include SurfStitch, Venerdi, Digital Video Technologies and Phoenix Distribution.
Ede says that the existing BPR customers are in safe hands. “As well as it being business-as-usual - with the entire BPR team joining Fusion5 – it’s worth noting that Fusion5 received the NetSuite Award for Customer Service Excellence at the recent 2016 NetSuite Australia and New Zealand Partner Kick-off.”
BPR is our second major acquisition already this year; pushing our portfolio out to over 700 customers and 270 staff across nine offices.
