HSO has strengthened its UK operations with retail expertise by a team of Retail Industry specialists previously employed at Junction Solutions Ltd. The expansion, which follows HSO’s acquisition of Touchstone AX in 2011, is in line with HSO’s strategic aim to consolidate its position as the world’s leading pure-play Microsoft Dynamics AX system integrator.
Junction Solutions was a leading provider of Microsoft Dynamics AX in the UK with specific AX-based solutions for the Retail Industry. HSO extends its capabilities within the UK by strengthening the retail expertise in consulting, industry solutions and customer support. In addition, HSO UK operations doubled in size and will be able to better serve the UK market, bringing the UK business strategically in line with HSO globally in terms of market focus and domain expertise.
With the expansion, HSO takes a leadership role in Europe in retail solutions and implementations based on Microsoft Dynamics AX. HSO is the leading international implementation partner for Microsoft Dynamics AX, having a Gartner commended methodology and recently been awarded the highest customer satisfaction ratings in the industry.
Peter J. ter Maaten, HSO CEO said: “Our ambition is to be the first choice for larger enterprises implementing Microsoft technology in multiple locations. We have made significant investment in our unique implementation methodology to reliably deliver projects for multifaceted businesses like retailers. We are delighted with the expansion as it aligns the HSO UK operations with HSO globally and it represents real value for customers, staff and partners. Microsoft has made a significant investment in Dynamics AX for Retail and this expansion aligns HSO further with Microsoft’s strategy.”
Tim Ford, HSO UK’s Managing Director for Sales and Marketing, said: “Our customers should be reassured that the expansion will add to the strength and capabilities of HSO. We look forward to work with customers and exceeding their expectations in service, commitment and partnership.”
