We are thrilled to announce our latest news: Sqware Peg has been acquired by Simplus, a Platinum Salesforce Partner backed by Salesforce Ventures. We’ve already begun getting to know our new Simplus team members, and we are excited to share a little bit about what their expertise brings to our new and improved services in Australia.
Ryan Westwood of Simplus and Reid Meldrum from Sqware Peg, discuss the motivation behind the acquisition and what this means to the Australian market.
Simplus is a US based company and the acquisition of Sqware Peg furthers Simplus’ global expansion into the Asia Pacific region. This investment is Simplus’ first international acquisition and sixth Salesforce partner acquisition since 2016.
“Simplus brings another level of resource to Sqware Peg’s already established cross-cloud capabilities and local industry expertise. This acquisition will enable us to continue to thrive in the growing Salesforce ecosystem within Australia.” Meldrum said. “We’re excited about what the future holds as part of Simplus in Australia. We will be able to extend our range of services to offer clients quote-to-cash solutions as part of the global leaders in Salesforce CPQ and billing.”
Charles Woodall, VP, Partners, Alliances & Sales Channels, Salesforce APAC said: “Simplus and Sqware Peg are digital transformation trailblazers and we look forward to continuing our work with them in the Asia Pacific region.
“Salesforce partners are critical to our success and our growth strategy. This investment in our partners delivers improved product specialisation and delivery capability through better enablement and support. Together we’re delivering customer success by enabling companies to innovate faster, make intelligent, data-driven decisions, and operate at scale.
“We are experiencing rapid growth in the APAC region, with IDC predicting Salesforce and its ecosystem of partners and customers will create 79,000 new jobs by 2022 in Australia alone. Partners like Simplus and Sqware Peg are key to supporting this rapid growth, providing the skills and expertise at scale to deliver digital transformation.”
What does this mean for Sqware Peg’s valued clients and partners?
It will be business as usual, and our clients will directly benefit from the additional resources and service capabilities this acquisition brings.
For Sqware Peg partners and customers, all projects, teams, and contacts continue as usual. Your team at Sqware Peg does not change. Agreements, invoicing, and payments will be transitioned smoothly to the new Simplus entity, but be assured, these plans will be clearly communicated by your key contact when the time comes.
We value our partnership with you and are excited to drive continued success for your business in 2019 and beyond as Simplus in Australia. Any questions should be directed to your Account Executive.
