Stoneridge software acquires veteran microsoft partner advanced business systems

Stoneridge Software announces the acquisition of veteran Microsoft Dynamics partner Advanced Business Systems (ABS). ABS has focused on mid-market companies for more than 20 years through implementation and support of Dynamics NAV business software. They were one of the first partners in the world to implement the cloud-based Dynamics 365 Business Central solution.

The combination of the two firms positions Stoneridge Software as one of the leading Microsoft Dynamics partners in the mid-market space. Dynamics 365 Business Central is a cloud-based, Microsoft accounting and operations software designed for small to medium-size companies.

The acquisition expands the Stoneridge Software consulting practice and adds nearly 120 organizations to the Stoneridge Software client community.

“ABS is a forward-thinking partner who truly wants the best for their clients,” said Eric Newell, CEO of Stoneridge Software. “We are thrilled to bring on a talented team of consultants who share our passion for problem-solving and we look forward to serving the needs of their clients. With this merger, we strengthen our already strong Dynamics 365 Business Central practice and establish ourselves as the go-to choice for mid-market companies looking for a flexible and powerful business solution.”

Company leaders see many synergies between the two firms with similar company values, a client-centric focus, culture, the caliber of team members, and the same approach in running a business.

“We have always looked for ways to better serve our clients. After 21 years in business, the breadth of the business technology landscape has grown, and clients are coming to rely on partners to provide more comprehensive offerings,” said Chris Carrigee, ABS President. “In the best interest of our clients and partners, we began to search for a like-minded Microsoft partner we could team up with. After much due diligence, we found Stoneridge Software. We knew right away when we met the Stoneridge leadership that this was the right home.”

The acquisition was effective as of February 1, 2020.
