SAP specialist UXC Oxygen expects to have the first projects involving technology from its latest acquisition, White Labelled, underway in New Zealand before Christmas, according to CEO Stuart Dickinson.
Parent company UXC announced to the Australian Stock Exchange this week that it had acquired the digital and e-commerce specialist, predominantly for cash with some equity.
White Labelled, founded in 2008, has forecast annual revenues of more than A$6 million this year. It will operate as a practice within UXC Oxygen.
The company offers a full outsourced service to develop and deliver digital and e-commerce solutions.
“They specialise in building on e-commerce platforms,” Dickinson says. “Customers are choosing now to buy that way. This will connect to our core ERP and supply chain systems.
“We were very interested in their capability from the hybris perspective.”
Hybris is an SAP e-commerce platform. “We’re having a number of conversations with our New Zealand customers about hybris,” Dickinson says. “I expect the first projects to be underway before Christmas.”
UXC Oxygen also offers Oracle Commerce, IBM Websphere Commerce and Magento platforms.
“By combining the ERP capabilities in SAP, Oracle and Microsoft, we will give our customers a single view of both business to consumer and business to business customer interactions,” says UXC managing director Cris Nicolli. “We believe this type of integration is key to unlocking improved cost savings and value in the demand and supply chain and will bring to light a range of other business benefits.”
White Labelled has around 60 staff.
UXC is the largest Australian-owned ICT consultancy firm. It acquired the New Zealand SAP specialist Oxygen in 2006.
