Oxygen has furthered its push into the mid-market by acquiring Melbourne-based Intacct Business Consulting, an SAP Business One channel partner.
Oxygen signed on to resell SAP’s Business All-in-One three months ago. This was followed by the launch of OxygenExpress for SAP Business All-in-One, which aims to deploy the solution at a business within 12 weeks. OxygenExpress is based on SAP’s software platform, with hardware and deployment resources provided by Oxygen with a fixed scope and price.
Chief executive Mike Smith says the acquisition will accelerate its drive into the mid-market because of Intacct’s experience in deploying SAP Business One over the last three years, and give it access to a new customer base across the Tasman.
“SAP is no longer a solution only accessible for large companies and organisations,” Smith says. “SAP Business One and SAP Business All-in-One are now well proven as successful solutions for small to mid-sized companies.”
Intacct has been running in Australia for 14 years and has 12 staff. Its managing director Patrick Saundry has been appointed general manager for OxygenExpress and will report to Smith. Saundry says Intacct’s customers and staff will benefit from being part of a larger company and the deal will speed up its growth and broaden its offerings.
Smith says Intacct will run as a standalone business and retain its offices. The only possible staff changes are one or two Oxygen staff joining Intacct to focus on the mid-market
