In its second acquisition of 2023, Ideagen has acquired OnePlace Solutions.
Speaking about the news Ideagen CEO, Ben Dorks, said: “Today’s globalised world means secure and effective collaboration is essential to do business. In highly regulated industries, the need for auditable information management becomes even more crucial.
“What James and the team at OnePlace Solutions have created is a trusted suite of solutions, that provide a simplified and consistent way for people to engage with business systems built on Microsoft 365. We know these will bring significant value to existing Ideagen customers and new prospects as we use our global footprint to help extend its reach.
James Fox, founder of OnePlace Solutions, headquartered in Sydney Australia, said: “When we looked at our ambitions for the company – to execute on our product roadmap and continue to lead the market with innovative solutions to help our customers – then this alignment with Ideagen made complete sense.
“We like that Ideagen’s values mirror our own, it feels like a good fit, and it already has a footprint in the sectors and countries we operate in, so understand what we are trying to achieve.
“The opportunity this presents is exciting and I’m looking forward to the journey ahead of us.”
James will remain with Ideagen as Head of Ideagen OnePlace Solutions. Ben, who also joined Ideagen through an acquired business, added: “I’m pleased that James is choosing to stay with us and be part of our exciting and ambitious plans. His knowledge and experience of Microsoft integration and enterprise collaboration requirements is a real asset to our team.”
