Seattle, WA – April 16, 2018
sa.global and 360 Vertical Solutions today announced that the organizations will join forces to create the unquestioned leader in Microsoft Dynamics 365 solutionsand services for professional services firms and other project based organizations.

The merger is subject to final due diligence and is expected to close in the first half of 2018.
Historically, professional services firms have had to contract with multiple Microsoft consulting partners to attain the benefits of an integrated Microsoft Dynamics 365 platform for ERP, CRM, PSA and HCM capabilities. The merger of these two leaders brings together a single organization that can deliver a full spectrum of best-in-class Dynamics 365 solutions.

“As Microsoft’s cloud strategy has evolved around Dynamics 365, it’s critical that their consulting partners strategically align themselves with this new strategy”, explained Oli Gunnarsson, CEO for sa.global US. “We’ve long been Microsoft’s leading consultancy for ERP, PSA and HCM solutions in the Service Industries, but we recognize the need to further expand our domain expertise into the Dynamics 365 CRM solution in order to address the entire value chain of our clients. Joining forces with 360 Vertical Solutions extends our leadership position into Microsoft’s customer engagement solutions, and will allow us to help Microsoft capitalize on its growth opportunities in the Service Industries.”
“We’ve partnered with sa.global on joint engagements for several years now, and have enjoyed an outstanding working relationship”, stated Whit McIsaac, President & CEO of 360 Vertical Solutions. “In addition to sharing the same vertical industry focus, our organizations have developed and integrated a complimentary suite of pre-built, pre-configured industry software solutions that are implemented by the most experienced consultants available in the marketplace. This merger will allow us to offer our clients a broad set of integrated, industry-specific solutions that cover the entire value chain of our professional services industry clients. And by joining forces with a larger, multinational organization like sa.global, we can not only offer our employees additional growth opportunities, but provide a much broader footprint to support the global CRM market as well.”
The combined organization will have nearly 600 employees operating out of offices in 18 countries around the world, and will continue to provide industry-focused CRM, ERP, PSA, HCM, and Business Intelligence solutions to professional services firms in key vertical markets.
