New organization provides mid market with one-stop-shop for SAP solutions
Boxtel/ Utrecht, November 9th 2020 – SAP-partners Serac and Xperi are announcing a merger. The fusion of the companies from Utrecht and Boxtel will create a one-stop-shop for medium-sized organizations that want to work smarter and more efficiently by using SAP solutions. In order to realize their international growth ambitions Serac and Xperi also announce that investment company Mentha will take an interest in the new organization.
The merger between the two Gold partners of SAP means that years of experience in various industries and highly specialized knowledge will come together in one organization. Customers of Serac and Xperi and other mid-market companies will have access to the complete portfolio of SAP solutions and can benefit from in-depth expertise.
“We have realized strong growth in the last few years and see more opportunities to further expand our activities,” says Peter Geelen, managing director of Xperi. “To achieve this, we’ve considered various options. A merger with Serac turned out to be the most logical step. The portfolio is complementary and, just like Xperi, Serac distinguishes itself with a very strong customer focus. I’m therefore looking forward to building a solid organization which can provide the European mid market with smart SAP solutions.”
Erik-Jan Kerremans, Managing Director of Serac: “The merger with Xperi and the investment of Mentha enable us to take advantage of the opportunities we see in the market. We’re not only well positioned to expand our services to existing customers and enter new branches, but also to start realizing our international ambitions.”
New propositions for business value
Kerremans and Geelen will focus, among other things, on the development of new propositions around SAP BusinessOne, ByDesign and SAP S/4HANA. The purpose of this is to help organizations innovate even faster and to achieve results that deliver business value. Haran Sold, partner at Mentha: “We strongly believe in this market and the position and potential of SAP in medium-sized organizations. By supporting Serac and Xperi with capital and knowledge, we’re committed to realizing an ambitious growth strategy.”
