Two NetSuite partners – Victoria-based software provider Klugo and Adelaide-based managed services provider Outserve – have merged after two years of collaboration.
Now called Klugo Group, the new company was established following Klugo's acquisition of Outserve and the strategic partnership between the two, which had worked together to provide NetSuite implementation and support services. Klugo focused on the vendor's business and software development while Outserve would provide implementation, consulting, support and outsourced accounting services.
Klugo chief executive Annaliese Kloe said: "After two years of working successfully with Outserve, the Klugo board decided that merging with Outserve was most effective way to accelerate our growth plans.
"Significant local and international interest in NextService [Klugo's cloud-based field service management software built on NetSuite] and local NetSuite customer success meant that we needed to ramp up service delivery. Merging with Outserve was the obvious solution to helping our customers achieve the success with NetSuite and NextService."
The combined Klugo Group consists of 45 employees covering software development, sales, marketing, implementation, consulting, support and outsourced accounting services.
Outserve chief executive Daniel Perry said his team was excited to be joining the Klugo Group
"It creates opportunities for employees and allows us to accelerate our plans to build the most sought after NetSuite service delivery team," he said.
The Klugo Group leadership team will have Kloe as chief executive, Perry as chief operating officer and Outserve's Stephen Nankervis as the chief financial officer. The head office will be based in Melbourne, with offices in Sydney and Adelaide.
