Transform Solutions and Renown Corporation joins the Dialog Group
10 January 2015, 9:02am
In 2014 Renown and Transform Solutions were acquired by Dialog Information Technology.
The merging of the two companies with Dialog's existing Microsoft Dynamics division has brought together three Microsoft Dynamics Gold Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) partners to form the new Dialog Dynamics Practice. The acquisition creates a veritable powerhouse amongst ERP providers in the Australian, New Zealand and Asian marketplace.
Darren Smart, Transform Solutions co-founder and Managing Director, has been appointed as the General Manager of Dialog Dynamics. “Dialog and Transform Solutions have a pre-existing working relationship, having worked together on projects in the past,” says Smart. “This union is a natural extension of that partnership, and the integrated product offering will allow Dialog to provide more expansive business solutions to their clients.”
The combination of Dialog, Transform Solutions and Renown, brings together three highly complementary companies, each recognised and respected business software solutions providers and developers. Dialog’s existing Microsoft Dynamics team will join forces with Transform Solutions and Renown to create a new division within Dialog named Dialog Dynamics.
Dialog Dynamics will comprise the full suite of Microsoft Dynamics including AX, NAV, SL and CRM. FieldOne, a field service management solution which is part of Dialog’s existing product offerings will also be integrated within this group.
This consolidation forms one of the largest Microsoft Dynamics providers in Australia, offering existing and new clients the greatest number of resources and depth of expertise around these solutions.
“This is an exciting opportunity for Renown to be part of a one thousand person company that brings a full gamut of resources to the table, allowing us as a group to surpass our service for our clients,” says Renown Corporation Managing Director, Colin Walker. “It’s been an interesting process, having discovered even more synergies than ever imagined.”
