AKA Enterprise Solutions Announces Acquisition of Green Beacon’s Microsoft Dynamics AX Practice
New York, NY — August 21, 2015 — AKA Enterprise Solutions, one of the top Microsoft Dynamics partners globally, and Green Beacon solutions, a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics CRM solutions, announce that AKA has acquired Green Beacon’s Microsoft Dynamics AX practice.
Headquartered in Newton, Massachusetts, Green Beacon has been implementing and supporting business solutions built on Microsoft Dynamics CRM and Microsoft AX since 2001. As the company’s Dynamics CRM practice continued to grow, it made the decision to put CRM as its centerpiece, focusing on accelerating the growth of that practice. After thoughtful consideration, Green Beacon approached AKA Enterprise Solutions to acquire its Microsoft Dynamics AX practice. The acquisition is an asset purchase, and the majority of Green Beacon’s Dynamics AX team members and customers have moved over to AKA as part of the agreement.
“Not only has this acquisition added talented new team members to our already exceptional team, but it has also brought us great customers who have a strong bond with those resources,” said Ronald Haantjes, Vice President of Client Relations for AKA Enterprise Solutions. “All of our customers will benefit from a deeper pool of expertise that these resources bring to the team. We have made great progress in integrating them into our team, company and culture. “
AKA’s intellectual property in the media, financial services, public sector and life sciences industries has been key to the company’s strong performance and continues to be an engine to its revenue growth. With the acquisition of the Green Beacon AX practice, the company will expand its vertical footprint in manufacturing and distribution to fuel additional growth and success with the Dynamics AX product. AKA is a leader with Microsoft Dynamics ERP and CRM and has been recognized six times as Microsoft’s worldwide ERP Partner of the year winner or finalist.
”We are very excited to have entered into this agreement with such a well-respected partner as AKA,” said Benjamin Holtz, President and CEO of Green Beacon. “What was most important to us when we made the decision to focus on our CRM practice was to ensure a smooth transition and the best service moving forward for our AX clients. AKA was the clear choice. We are also very pleased that we found a home for our talented AX consultants at AKA, so they can continue to service the customers with which they have established relationships.”
Green Beacon continues to be a leading partner in the Microsoft Dynamics CRM community, earning a stellar reputation for delivering solutions built upon Dynamics CRM that help organizations transform the way they do business. Green Beacon has been recognized by partners and customers for its solutions and performance in the industries in which it specializes, including the public sector and financial services. Green Beacon was recently named to the Microsoft President’s Club for the third time.
“This is a home run for Microsoft, AKA and Green Beacon,” said Alan Kahn, Co-CEO of AKA Enterprise Solutions. “We have the highest respect for Green Beacon and are thrilled that their team members and customers have joined the AKA family. This agreement will allow both organizations to have a greater impact on our clients by helping them automate all aspects of their enterprise.”
