Press release: Asecom, Xperi and Serac largest SAP partner for mid-market in Benelux through merger
Three award-winning SAP partners join forces for growth and innovation
March 10, 2021 – Asecom, specialist in SAP Business One solutions, joins the recent merger between Serac and Xperi. This creates the largest SAP house in the Benelux for Business One, Business By Design and S4/HANA solutions in the mid-market. Investor Mentha Capital is helping the successful SAP partners achieve accelerated growth in Western Europe and to tap into new markets.
The merger between Serac and Xperi was announced at the end of 2020 and the combination immediately saw an opportunity to further expand the merger with a third party. After the takeover of Agion 1.5 years ago, Asecom was already the largest Business One partner in the Benelux. With Xperi’s focus on S4/HANA and Business ByDesign, all SAP ERP solutions now can be provided. The new organization offers customers a natural growth path through long-term partnership.
Strengthen SAP ecosystem
Joining forces is an important step in strengthening and future-proofing the SAP ecosystem. The new organization employs some 150 SAP specialists and is a one-stop-shop for enterprise-level SAP solutions that are made available and accessible to the mid-market.
Erik-Jan Kerremans, Managing Director of Serac: “The merger with Asecom brings great opportunities and new energy to help organizations with the best SAP consultants, high-quality solutions and support. Thanks to our complementary expertise and portfolios, we are able to serve customers even faster with an attractive proposition. The organization’s first promising plans have been made and I look forward to jointly establishing innovative best practices and expanding our position as a leading SAP-company for the mid-market to Western Europe.”
Award-winning SAP partners
The three parties are known for their high-quality solutions. They have also been awarded many times by SAP with awards such as Fastest Growing SAP Business One Partner EMEA North 2020, Outstanding Performance Award 2020 and Partner of the Year. Moreover, last week Asecom also won the SAP Business One Partner of the Year Award and Xperi was named SAP S/4HANA Move Partner of the Year.
Martijn van Veelen, co-owner of Asecom: “For Asecom, the merger means we can capitalize on the opportunities we see both nationally and internationally. Together with Serac and Xperi, we gain significantly more strength and expertise to bring our SAP solutions and services to even more sectors and organizations. I look forward to entering this next phase together with all employees and new colleagues.”
The coming period will be used to give concrete shape to the merger.
