UXC Eclipse CEO Bradley Stroop said there are great synergies between UXC Eclipse and the Koorb Consulting business and the acquisition sees “two very similar businesses come together, both with a Microsoft Dynamics AX and BI focus, and significant market presence.”
Stroop said Koorb Consulting is a highly successful Microsoft Dynamics Gold Partner with 16 years history in the New Zealand market, and a customer base of more than 90 Microsoft Dynamics AX and BI sites.
“Today’s acquisition positions UXC Eclipse as the largest Microsoft Dynamics AX partner in New Zealand and one of the top two largest AX partners globally. Expanding the New Zealand business will bring the global UXC Eclipse team to well over 600 people and customer numbers to over 2,700 globally.”
UXC Eclipse has been established in New Zealand since 2006 with a strong Microsoft Dynamics GP and NAV practice and Stroop says the addition of the Koorb Microsoft Dynamics AX and BI divisions presents an opportunity for the company to leverage its existing New Zealand, Australian and Pacific ecosystem and infrastructure to support further business growth.
Nicholas Birch, joint managing director, Koorb Consulting, said, “With international reach and a broader range of solutions and services, UXC Eclipse offers a strong base that will take the Koorb AX and BI business divisions to the next level of growth. The company is well-placed to support existing customers with international sites in Australia and North America.”
The New Zealand acquisition of Koorb assets, follows UXC Eclipse’s two significant acquisitions in the last 18 months in North America. UXC managing director Cris Nicolli said the company had grown the company in the United States to over 200 people with local revenues currently at $68 million.
“Today’s acquisition sees a renewed focus on the APAC region, where we have always been highly successful. It will cement UXC Eclipse’s position as the largest Microsoft Dynamics AX partner in New Zealand, expanding the business with more than 50 staff and over 200 local customers,” Nicolli said.
