SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA – Wednesday 12th February 2020 – Nexon Asia Pacific (Nexon) announces today the completion of its acquisitions;
- Kiandra IT – the Technology Services and Security Solutions division
- Remagine SolutionsÂ
This strategic combination will further strengthen Nexonâ€™s presence, and
- Grow Nexonâ€™s cloud and managed IT practice, adding additional value to existing and prospective customers.
- Build on Nexonâ€™s existing footprint in Melbourne
- Evolve Nexonâ€™s Security solutions to mid-market customers, and complement their comprehensive portfolio of end to end services, and
- Supplement Nexonâ€™s existing Microsoft Dynamics practice with industry specific intellectual property.
Nexonâ€™s investment is part of a larger growth strategy to further enhance their IT services offering, grow their client portfolio, and continue to seek suitable acquisitions. This follows six months after EQT Mid Market Asia invested in the organisationâ€™s vision and set in motion a road map for its continued growth and success.
â€œWeâ€™ve invested in these organisations to support our strategic goals, and provide customers with complementary solutions that meet their evolving needs. These investments will allow us to deliver even more specialised platforms and services to our customers across key market segmentsâ€ said Nexonâ€™s Chief Executive Officer, Barry Assaf. â€œWe are continuously looking at ways to geographically expand our managed services footprint in Australia and enhance customer experiencesâ€ added Assaf.
With aggressive growth plans in action, Nexon will continue to invest in their cloud and cybersecurity strategy, Managed IT and industry solutions that support their Microsoft ecosystem.
Nexonâ€™s investment in Kiandra IT, Remagine Solutions and XCentral, will support Nexonâ€™s pathway for growth and shape their next generation managed IT offering whilst scaling their Melbourne footprint.
â€œBy acquiring the Technology Services division of Kiandra IT, we are able to strengthen our proposition to customers, across security, cloud services and managed IT. They have well-established security and Azure practice that will benefit many mid-market organisations we service today, but also look to attract new onesâ€ added Assaf.
With cloud adoption continuously on the rise, mid-market organisations will require a partner with expert skills to deliver enterprise-grade security services. This acquisition will bring significant advantages, including security awareness, training services, security readiness assessments, incident response management, and consultancy services. These services will add value to Nexonâ€™s already comprehensive security portfolio including perimeter, email, endpoint and cloud security services.
â€œWhile weâ€™re sad to part with a foundational element of the business we started 24 years ago, this acquisition will provide additional growth opportunities for team members moving to Nexon, and give our clients access to the broad range of IT services that Nexon offers. We congratulate Nexon as they to go from strength to strength, and weâ€™re super excited about Kiandraâ€™s new, more focused futureâ€ said Kiandraâ€™s Director Cameron Brookes.
In addition the Remagine Solutions acquisition will add to Nexonâ€™s existing Business Solutions practice with Dynamics 365 point solutions across multiple industries. Remagine Solutions offers a vast range of services that supports Nexonâ€™s business strategy with unique add-ons to the Microsoft Platform.
â€œRemagine Solutions has developed specific intellectual property that aligns with our market segments and industries including the not for profit and healthcare sector. This addition will allow us to grow our Microsoft Dynamics practice and build the right platforms to support our already strong Microsoft ecosystemâ€ said Assaf.
â€œWe are excited about the opportunities that Nexonâ€™s scale presents us, and our customers. Not only will our clients get access to expertise and services that we canâ€™t offer in house today, but we can also leverage Nexonâ€™s reach to deliver our innovative solutions across a broader marketplaceâ€ said Gavin Leathem Managing Director at Remagine Solutions.
With customer demands soaring for cloud and managed services, Nexonâ€™s investment in XCentral couldnâ€™t come at a better time. XCentralâ€™s collaborative approach, combined with their expertise and knowledge will support Nexonâ€™s offering evolution. From network services to collaboration, IT security, to business continuity, right through to device management, Nexon customers will have access to additional capabilities across their comprehensive IT offering.
â€œAs our customers become more reliant on cloud technologies, and we grow, we will require the right expertise and people to service customers. XCentral will assist in scaling our complete suite of managed services including help desk support across targeted industries including the not for profit sector. For our customers this means we are able to deliver higher levels of customer service across the business and respond quickly to their needs now and well into the future.â€ added Assaf.
â€œAfter 15 years of growing a fantastic customer base and providing a service weâ€™re really proud of, weâ€™re incredibly excited to be able to take this to the next level by combining with Nexonâ€™s breadth and depth of offerings. Barry and his team align with us so well not only culturally but also with what we think the market wants from a modern, end-to-end Managed Service Providerâ€ said Angus Mansfield, Managing Director at XCentral.
â€œWe are in the midst of growth and are continuing to invest in the right people, platforms and processes to provide greater value to our customers, and their experiences with Nexon. For now, we are focused on building out value-based offering from Security, Cloud and Managed services to support our customer priorities and deliver solutions that meet business outcomes.â€ added Assaf.
