Australian business solutions company UXC Limited has announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Oxygen Business Solutions, has finalised the acquisition of the business assets of SAP hybris systems integrator contiigo.
The deal comprises contiigo’s customer base, intellectual property, accreditations, contracts, software, systems and 25 employees.
In conjunction with its existing digital solutions and implementation practice, White Labelled, this acquisition propels UXC into a strong leadership position in the market and reinforces UXC Oxygen’s position as a SAP systems integrator in Australasia with a digital customer engagement commerce (CEC) offering.
“This is an exciting and strategic development as it brings together leading capabilities providing us with a wider business sector footprint for our growing digital and customer experience practice,” says Stuart Dickinson CEO, UXC Oxygen.
“By leveraging the significant involvement of contiigo in B2B and government sectors together with the existing White Labelled business we not only expand our solution depth and blue chip customer base but also gain synergies in delivery.
“UXC Oxygen’s proficiency in the key CEC technologies – SAP hybris, CRM and Cloud for Customer – enables it to deliver results for customers no matter where they are on the customer acquisition and retention journey.
“We are the only SAP systems integrator in Australasia that has both the technical capability and demonstrable customer success stories across the full spectrum of customer experience management solutions.”
Founded in 2004 with offices in Melbourne and Sydney, contiigo has grown to become the largest Australian independent SAP hybris implementation specialist with a strong onshore software development capability.
Furthermore, contiigo is Asia Pacific and Japan's only regional platinum hybris partner and is the current hybris partner of the year, with all staff set to be integrated into UXC Oxygen’s existing offices over the next three months.
“The acquisition is an exciting opportunity for contiigo customers to bridge any gaps between their back end ERP and front end omni-commerce solutions with technology and services from one, integrated provider,” adds Matt Hampshire, managing director, contiigo.
“We expect a seamless transition and for it to be business as usual from day one for our customers.
“Moving forward, they will be able to access a much wider IT capability, ranging from strategic services such as business strategy and user experience design, right through to managed services across the full stack of SAP applications and associated infrastructure.”
