EMERGE AFRICA BUYS INTEGREAR SYSTEMFLO
Emerge Africa, the master value-added reseller (VAR) in Africa for business process management (BPM) company Global 360, has bought the Systemflo division of Integrear, Global 360’s local partner for the past 10 years.
The deal is expected to see Emerge Africa become a leading provider of BPM solutions on the continent. Global 360 is a global provider of business process management and optimisation software. Its clients in Africa include government, educational institutions and companies in the telecommunications, banking and insurance industries.
“It was a natural move to bring Emerge Africa and Integrear together,” says Emerge Africa CEO, Jean Moncrieff. “We had case management skills and Integrear has brought enterprise BPM skills, so we have put together a very strong offering. We now have the technology and business skills to deliver complete BPM solutions to our partners and customers all over Africa.”
Moncrieff adds that Emerge Africa is also able to tap Global 360’s worldwide expertise and experience: “There is no need for local companies to re-invent solutions.”
