RSM UK has acquired First Hosted Limited (FHL), uniting two of the world's most successful Oracle NetSuite partners focused on SaaS-driven, cloud-based ERP platforms. Financial terms were not disclosed.

The combined company will have roughly 100 professionals focused on the NetSuite ecosystem -- making it the largest Oracle NetSuite-focused partner in Europe, according to RSM COO David Gwilliam.

Moreover, the combined business will serve a range of vertical markets across small and large engagements, added Chris Knowles, lead partner for technology and management consulting at RSM. It sounds like Andrew Peddie, FHL managing director, will stay on to drive the business forward.

Both FHL and RSM UK are well-known in the Oracle NetSuite ecosystem. FHL in May earned the NetSuite EMEA Solution Provider Partner of the Year award, for the fifth time. Similarly, RSM in May was named on of NetSuite's 2017 Partners of the Year for the second consecutive time.

Oracle acquired NetSuite in 2016, propelling the technology giant deeper into the SaaS-centric ERP market serving midsize customers. Craig West, senior VP of channel sales at NetSuite, has led the company's partner engagements for more than a decade.
