SALT LAKE CITY–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Simplus today announced that it has acquired San Francisco–based CirrusOne, a firm that specializes in high-quality consulting services for CPQ, CLM, billing and customer success solutions. The move is part of Simplus’ vision as a leading CPQ service provider that delivers customer success through quote-to-cash solutions tailored to maximize the user experience.
“Simplus and CirrusOne have long shared the same dedication to raising the industry bar, so my team and I are absolutely thrilled to combine forces to further accelerate progress in the CPQ space,” said Ryan Westwood, Simplus CEO. “We’re especially excited to inherit greater technical depth and domain expertise, as well as CirrusOne’s exceptional operating principles.”
Simplus, founded in 2014 and headquartered in Salt Lake City, has now completed five consultancy acquisitions since Q4 2016. It most recently purchased CRM manager in November 2017 after a successful Series B funding round led by EPIC Ventures, including Salesforce Ventures and Cross Creek Advisors.
Simplus – recently ranked No. 78 on Deloitte’s Technology Fast 500™ and recipient of six Comparably 2017 Best Company awards – will be adding 44 full-time CirrusOne employees to its team, expanding upon its creation of 100 new jobs in 2017.
“Combining Simplus’ global footprint and success with the consultant development and project governance that has fueled CirrusOne’s rapid growth is an incredibly exciting proposition,” said Shane Anastasi, CirrusOne CEO. “Combined, we have an arsenal of go-to-market products that helps us accelerate our shared vision, and we are all very excited about the future.”
CirrusOne – a Silver Salesforce Partner and Gold Oracle Partner – was recently named the No. 4 Fastest Growing Consulting Firm in North America by Consulting Magazine for its 740 percent growth from 2013 to 2016.
“Combining technologies from CirrusOne and Simplus has the potential to create an unparalleled firm in the quote-to-cash space,” said Erich Rusch, CirrusOne co-founder and CSO. “We’re excited to co-create one of the largest quote-to-cash firms on the planet. Having the ability to combine our collective wisdom and experience toward achieving this goal is a primary driver in our decision to merge with Simplus.”
Godard Abel, former CEO of BigMachines and SteelBrick, now Salesforce CPQ, also commented on the acquisition: “With this acquisition, Simplus is further strengthening its team and creating a preeminent quote-to-cash consultancy in the Salesforce ecosystem. It is great to see Simplus bringing this tremendous talent together to help customers achieve success.”
