Agreement sees Nottingham-based Solutions for Accounting and CRM gain new clients

Solutions for Accounting and CRM has reached an agreement to transfer the Sage business interests of Ridgeworks IT Limited to the Nottingham-headquartered Sage Platinum Partner.

Having been an established Sage practitioner for many years in the UK, Ridgeworks IT has grown to become a trusted provider of managed IT solutions with a focus on delivering communications, security and infrastructure to its clients. The Leeds based business therefore sought to appoint a trusted specialist partner to serve and take ownership of its Sage business management software customer base.

From 1st October, contracted clients of Ridgeworks IT will have a single point of contact for order placement and support through Solutions for Accounting and CRM. On-site services for implementation, training and consultancy will be delivered by Solutions’ locally based experts across the UK. This includes key personnel from Ridgeworks IT who have transferred to become Solutions employees.

“We are thrilled to be working with those Sage user organisations who have been served so well for many years by Ridgeworks IT,” says Solutions Managing Director Iain Barker.

“Having interacted with Stephen and his team on a number of occasions in the past, we’ve always shared a similar philosophy and a common approach to delivering customer service excellence. This acquisition just made good sense to us; extending the community into which we can seek to deliver and support impactful Sage solutions that drive improvement in clients’ businesses.”

Stephen Oxley, Managing Director at Ridgeworks IT said: “Due to an increasing focus on other areas, we felt the timing was right to pass the duty of providing a first-class service to our Sage customers onto an organisation we could trust to continue and improve on our work of the last 15 years.

“Solutions for Accounting and CRM are an organisation that not only has one of the most experienced teams of Sage Certified Consultants in the UK, but also has a deep commitment to outstanding customer service. We are totally confident that Iain and the Solutions team will ensure that our customers realise the very best of their investment in Sage going forward.”
