Nottingham firm acquired by global software provider

SoftwareONE Holding AG, a global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, has acquired Nottingham-headquartered Centiq.

SoftwareONE says the acquisition further strengthens its fast-growing SAP Services practice in Europe and globally with the addition of a team of highly skilled SAP cloud experts.

Founded in 1998, Centiq provides comprehensive SAP-related professional and managed services and solutions throughout Europe. Centiq is a certified SAP Services Partner, a recognized SAP Gold Partner, and deployed one of the first SAP HANA implementations in the UK in 2011.

Their expertise also extends to Microsoft Azure, for which they hold the Advanced Specialization designation for SAP on Azure, and they are regarded one of the most experienced Microsoft partners globally in this space.

Daniel Da Vinci, global practice leader SoftwareONE SAP Services practice, said: “We are thrilled to welcome Centiq to the SoftwareONE organization. Through this acquisition, we are continuing to strengthen our global SAP Services practice and extending our reach in the EMEA market.

“Centiq’s incredible capabilities will equip our customers with the skilled guidance and solutions required to migrate to the cloud. In addition to the proven capability we are now adding to our global SAP Services practice, I am also greatly impressed by Matt and his leadership team. Centiq is a purpose-driven organization, and so are we; their collaborative approach and strong focus on delivering excellence makes them a perfect fit.”

Matt Lovell, CEO of Centiq, said: “Becoming part of the SoftwareONE family is an exciting
opportunity for both our customers and employees that extends our global reach and enables more organizations to benefit from our market leading SAP on Azure and native Azure expertise.

“The integration into SoftwareONE’s global SAP Centre of Excellence enables our team to deliver even greater customer success and value, now with multi-lingual, follow-the-sun support.

“Joining SoftwareONE also further enhances our strategic alliance with Microsoft, amplifying our capabilities and putting Centiq in a stronger position to meet the ever-increasing needs of the market. On this occasion I would also like to thank LDC for their long-term support in helping us build the market-leading business Centiq is today.”

The acquisition follows a six-year partnership between LDC and Centiq.

Chris Coulton, portfolio director at LDC, said: “SoftwareONE is a great new home for the business that will enable Matt and his team to further develop the Centiq offering whilst continuing to deliver the outstanding client service and expertise that the business has become known for. We wish them all the best on the next stage of their growth journey.”

Centiq’s current leadership team and employees will join SoftwareONE.
