​UXC Eclipse strengthens NZ foothold with Microsoft Dynamics acquisition of Kiwi tech firm

“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."

UXC Eclipse, a wholly owned subsidiary of UXC Limited, has acquired selected assets of Kiwi technology firm Koorb Consulting, taking on board the Microsoft Dynamics AX and Microsoft Business Intelligence (BI) divisions of the company.

Operating as a successful Microsoft Dynamics Gold Partner with 16 years history in the local market, Koorb has built a customer base of more than 90 Microsoft Dynamics AX and BI sites.

“There are great synergies between UXC Eclipse and the Koorb Consulting business,” says Bradley Stroop, CEO, UXC Eclipse.

“This acquisition sees two very similar businesses come together, both with a Microsoft Dynamics AX and BI focus, and significant market presence.

“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.

Stroop believes 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.

“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,” adds Nicholas Birch, joint managing director, Koorb Consulting.

“The company is well-placed to support existing customers with international sites in Australia and North America.”

In the last 18 months, UXC Eclipse made two significant acquisitions in North America, growing 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,” adds Cris Nicolli, managing director, UXC.

“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.”

UXC Eclipse will integrate the Koorb Dynamics AX and BI professional services teams within its existing New Zealand professional services infrastructure.

Koorb and UXC Eclipse will continue to work collaboratively in the local market with a preferred partner relationship and moving forward Koorb will focus on its Microsoft CRM and SharePoint business streams.

“Microsoft Dynamics AX is the flagship enterprise and upper mid-market ERP solution for Microsoft and one of its fastest growing product lines,” Stroop adds.

“With more than 55 per cent of UXC Eclipse’s revenue expected to come from the AX product suite in FY2016, this acquisition supports the strategic direction of the business.”

The finalisation of the transaction is still subject to completion of key arrangements and signing of documents.
