Headstrong Acquires Metamor Enterprise Solutions, LLC
Leading SAP Solutions Provider to Leverage Headstrong's Offshore Facilities for Application Development and Maintenance
 
Washington, United States

Headstrong, a global business consulting and IT technology services firm, has acquired Metamor Enterprise Solutions, LLC, a leading SAP All-in-One Services partner headquartered in Fountain Valley, CA. The deal is expected to bolster Headstrong's Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) solutions capabilities, and provide a full range of offshore development, maintenance and support solutions for Metamor clients. Metamor will retain its name and will continue to serve existing clients without interruption, while its BPO division, which is not being acquired by Headstrong, will be spun off and operated as ACM Business Solutions, LLC under the direction of N.C. Murthy, former CEO of Metamor. Both Metamor and Headstrong are privately held.

The union combines Headstrong's consulting, integration and outsourcing acumen with Metamor's laser-focus on SAP consulting, implementation and support services. Metamor, a widely respected brand in SAP circles since the early 1990's, has a strong middle market focus and touts over 60 projects in a variety of industries, including manufacturing, distribution, technology, CPG and retail. Metamor, an authorized reseller of SAP, is the only company in the US to develop a pre-configured client-based methodology (Quickwear(TM)) to facilitate fast and efficient implementations of SAP for small to mid-sized companies in the apparel and footwear industry.

"Our clients are demanding a single source solution that touches front office, back office and everything in between to maximize their return on investment," said Arjun Malhotra, CEO and Chairman of Headstrong. "Metamor gives Headstrong 'everything in between', and provides a complimentary channel to drive ERP solutions to our existing client base. This acquisition rounds out our offerings and gives us a real advantage."

"Metamor has built its reputation on successfully delivering complex ERP solutions, but it has been limited by its relative size," said Raghu Mendu, President of Metamor. "Headstrong removes that obstacle and gives us significant financial strength, access to offshore delivery and maintenance centers across India and the Philippines, as well as a team of qualified practitioners onshore and offshore. Combining Headstrong's proven consulting heritage and offshore delivery prowess with our strong ERP capabilities in SAP translates to exciting opportunities for us and our customers."
