Acquisition Extends Net at Work’s Broad U.S. Coverage to Canada; Provides Synergy Customers with Expanded Range of Solutions and Services
New York, NY – (July 10, 2012) – Net at Work, a leading Sage Software business partner and provider of integrated business technology solutions, today announced that it has entered the Canadian market via its acquisition of Synergy Plus Solutions (Synergy), one of Canada’s leading Sage 300 ERP (formerly Sage ERP Accpac) and Sage CRM consulting practices and Value Added Resellers (VAR). The acquisition gives Synergy’s clients (some 300 organizations across Ontario and Michigan) access to Net at Work’s award-winning Sage team, providing unmatched support for the full suite of Sage ERP, CRM and HRMS solutions, while delivering a complete range of technologies and services to help them grow their business, including: Enterprise Content Management, systems integration and e-Commerce solutions.
“We’ve known Synergy’s President Joe Santoro for years and have long admired Synergy as one of the most respected and influential Sage Software consulting practices in the business,” said Alex Solomon, Net at Work’s Co-President. “We’ve been looking for the right opportunity to enter the dynamic Canadian market. Joe’s leadership and Synergy’s breadth of Sage ERP and CRM expertise, combined with their reputation for superior customer support, will enable us to deliver a complete range of business technology solutions to companies across Ontario and into Michigan-and eventually across all of Canada, as we identify other strategic acquisitions.”
“A number of years ago a Sage executive pointed to Alex and Eddie Solomon and the Net at Work team as an emerging force in this industry, given the way they manage their practice, cultivate partners, and service their growing customer base,” said Santoro. “We soon realized that our organizations shared the same core values, chiefly an emphasis on uncompromising customer service. With this acquisition, our clients will be able to rely on us as a trusted single source for all their business technology needs, from accounting, customer relationship management, HR, and e-Commerce — as well as all the IT processes that enable them to successfully compete on a world stage.”
Over the years Synergy has received numerous awards: they’ve been recognized as Accpac International Certified Consultant of the Year, were six-time Sage Premier Partners, and a Sage Software President’s Circle winner. The acquisition is expected to be seamless, given the two company’s complementary capabilities and shared values, as well as Net at Work’s experience in expanding services and resources to clients through strategic acquisition.
Mr. Santoro will serve as Net at Work’s Sage 300 ERP Practice Director. The Synergy team will remain headquartered in Windsor, Ontario, with a presence in Troy, Michigan. The Windsor location is a gateway to Ontario, which is Canada’s manufacturing and distribution hub, allowing Net at Work to expand into other major markets, such as Toronto, where Sage 300 ERP has a strong installed base.
