Page 1 of 1
Fueled by $100 million in investment from GTCR Golder Rauner LLC, netASPx has built out its ASP infrastructure by acquiring smaller ASPs and Web hosting firms.
The acquisition of Balrae and USC adds more than 50 seasoned consultants to the netASPx team. Balrae and USC consultants bring experienced sales and implementation personnel of Lawson Software applications to netASPx's portfolio.
John Whiteside, netASPx chief executive officer, said the new e-commerce economy poses significant change for businesses, especially in the way that information technology is delivered.
"Helping customers leverage this new opportunity is much more than just setting up a data center for hosting applications," said Whiteside. "To ensure success and reduce risk, we must also provide exceptional leadership in planning, analysis, technology, and project management."
"With the addition of these important skills from Balrae and USC, we are in an even better position to help businesses transition to an integrated business-to-business e-commerce enabled business computing platform," Whiteside added.
Balrae and USC consultants will join netASPx customer implementation services, working side-by-side with netASPx, Lotus Notes and Domino services practice. Together the Lawson Software and Lotus Notes Domino services practice plan to support customers with Web site implementations and applications management.
Former Balrae President Lou Balla was named vice president of customer implementation, reporting to netASPx's Whiteside. Balla's group is tasked with achieving a leadership market position in each of Lawson's major application suites--financials, human resources and supply chain services.
Former USC President Steve Rigisich will serve as director of service, offering management at netASPx. Rigisich joins other team members in charge of developing netASPx's service offering strategy.
Headquartered in Herndon, Virginia netASPx is a full-service ASP targeting business-to-business sales and logistics companies. The company delivers its services on site or through a traditional ASP-model of hosted integration applications.
