Ergo acquires iSite
Ergo has acquired customer relationship management (CRM) specialist and IT resource provider iSite for an undisclosed sum.
The acquisition will see Ergo grow its employee numbers from 200 to 330. On top of this, Ergo plans to create 120 extra jobs within two years. A new spin-off firm, Ergo Resourcing, will be headed up by former iSite CEO Dave Muldoon.
John Purdy, chief executive, Ergo, said: “We are delighted to bring iSite into the Ergo fold – there will be no change in circumstances for existing iSite customers because the whole team will be joining Ergo, creating a bigger, stronger entity with an ever-increasing breadth of skills and expertise.”
Dave Muldoon added: “With Ergo we immediately move up the next level. We can attract more talent, offer customers more depth and our people have even stronger career paths. It’s very exciting for everyone.”
The acquisition comes at a time when the 2015 release of Microsoft Dynamics CRM is expected to become a significant addition to Office 365, the Microsoft suite of cloud-based applications. Ergo has been a leading player in the success of Office 365, responsible for around 60% of the seats sold on the island.
Customers of iSite’s Dynamics CRM practice include Independent News & Media, BWG Foods, Londis, Fáilte Ireland, and Tourism Ireland.
