KPMG Acquires Microsoft Dynamics 365 Integrator Adoxio
Adoxio has 80 employees across Canada and in the United States, including offices in Calgary, Toronto, Ottawa, Regina and Redmond, Washington. The company serves roughly 300 customers worldwide, including Dynamics 365 clientele within multiple vertical markets — particularly public sector, regulatory, manufacturing, retail and energy.
As a Microsoft Gold partner, Adoxio’s specialties include Cloud Customer Relationship Management, Customer Relationship Management, and Application Development, the company says.
Adoxio, KPMG Leadership Perspectives
Adoxio CEO Grant McLarnon says the M&A deal is a good cultural fit that will scale globally. In a prepared statement he said:
“From the beginning of our conversations with KPMG I have been impressed by how natural this has felt, and how aligned we are in our values and the role we see Microsoft Dynamics playing in digitally transforming the organizations we work with. Organizations today are looking for new and different ways to better engage with people – we have always been passionate about empowering those organizations. Now we are joining forces to do this as part of a truly global organization.”
Meanwhile, KPMG and Microsoft have had a strategic alliance since 2015, and the Adoxio deal has natural synergy with that relationship, the company says.
In a prepared statement, Georgina Black, partner & national leader, Management Consulting at KPMG, said:
“We are excited to have Adoxio, another Microsoft Gold Partner, become part of KPMG. We believe the shared experiences and talents of our teams will strengthen our ability to provide comprehensive digital customer relationship tools, analytics and solutions to our clients.”
