COLUMBUS, OH July 2, 2019 — Velosio, a technology partner specializing in business management solutions for small and medium-sized companies and larger enterprises, today announced it has acquired Synergy Business Solutions, a Microsoft Gold Certified Partner specializing in business applications for the services industry. This strategic acquisition expands Velosio’s delivery capabilities with the addition of more than 20 experienced technical and delivery resources with expertise helping services industry clients with project-based billing requirements leveraging Microsoft business applications to transform their business.
“The Synergy team is extremely pleased to be joining Velosio,” said Donna Hurst, President & CEO of Synergy Business Solutions. “With Velosio’s over 30 years’ experience, now further complemented with the tenure of the Synergy team, I am confident that Velosio will provide the opportunity for our employees to reach new levels of success. With our collective expertise, I am excited to provide Synergy customers with increased scale and cloud expertise.”
“This acquisition is a great example of Velosio’s energetic plans for 2019 to grow our business,” said Jeff Geisler, CEO of Velosio. “I am pleased to work with Donna and the Synergy team as Velosio accelerates our Services industry footprint, helping project-based businesses realize value faster through expert delivery of business solutions and cloud technologies. When we formed Velosio, one of the key goals we identified was becoming a preferred acquirer of other Microsoft partners, such as Synergy. We see acquisitions like Synergy as a win-win where not only does Velosio continue to improve its service offering and talent base, but we can provide a larger opportunity for their employees to further their own professional development and training. This is just the first of such acquisitions we envision with partners we have become familiar with and have great respect for.”
This acquisition will strengthen Velosio’s Microsoft Dynamics footprint in the northwestern US and adds depth to our vertical IP accelerating our focus on the professional services industry.
