COLUMBIA, MD -- (Marketwired) -- 05/14/13 -- Peak-Ryzex today announced that it has entered into a definitive agreement to invest in Movilitas Consulting AG, the consulting arm and subsidiary of Movilitas Holding GmbH. The investment will make Peak-Ryzex the majority shareholder of the consulting business (Movilitas Consulting AG). The previous parent Movilitas Holding GmbH (to be renamed Movilizer GmbH in future) will focus its resources to further develop, support and market the Movilizer Mobile Enterprise Application Platform (MEAP) as well as its related Movilizer enterprise applications. The transaction is expected to close by the end of May 2013.
Movilitas Consulting AG is widely considered one of the early pioneers of successfully implementing global templates for SAP Track & Trace projects, integrating with SAP Auto-ID Infrastructure (SAP AII) and SAP Object Event Repository (SAP OER). Movilitas Consulting's SAP Track & Trace customers include many of the world's largest industry-leaders in the areas of Pharmaceuticals, Tobacco and Chemicals. Movilitas Consulting also specializes in implementing mobility solutions leveraging the Movilizer platform for SAP users in the application areas of Direct Store Delivery (DSD), Field Service (FS)/Plant Maintenance (PM), Sales/Distribution (SD), and Utilities (IS-U). Movilitas Consulting also has strong expertise and an extensive client base in SAP Multi Resource Scheduling (SAP MRS) integrated with SAP Plant Maintenance/Customer Service (SAP PM/CS), SAP Project Systems (SAP PS) and SAP Utilities (SAP IS-U).
"In 2012 our acquisition of Catalyst strengthened our resources and focus on SAP supply chain and logistics execution solutions in North America, this investment in Movilitas Consulting expands our commitment to the SAP user community in the areas of SAP Track & Trace and mobility solutions, ultimately expanding our solutions and geographic footprint for our multi-national SAP customers," said Ross Young, CEO of Peak-Ryzex. "The board and management team of Movilitas Consulting AG as well as the division name and strategy will remain the same but they will now be able to leverage the larger scale and coverage of the Peak-Ryzex organization in North America and Europe," added Young.
Alberto Zamora, one of the founders of Movilitas Holding GmbH, said, "The main mission of our subsidiary, Movilitas Consulting AG, over the past several years has been to deliver successful projects around SAP Track & Trace (SAP OER/AII), SAP multi-resource scheduling (SAP MRS) and Movilizer for SAP. My two partners and I, that founded Movilitas Holding GmbH, have decided that now is the appropriate time to exclusively focus our future efforts on the Movilizer platform so that we can establish our solution as the worldwide standard for enterprise mobility."
"After evaluating several investment options for our Movilitas Consulting business, Peak-Ryzex, with their extensive resources in North America and UK, best satisfied our desire to align this business with a strategic partner committed to the SAP user community. This also provides the additional growth capital for us to focus our energy on further developing our Movilizer software business and related Movilizer enterprise applications (Movilizer for SAP DSD, Movilizer for SAP PM/CS, Movilizer for SAP Track & Trace, Movilizer for SAP CRM etc.)," added Zamora.
"With a workforce of over 520 employees and offices throughout the United States, Canada, and UK, and vast skills on delivering SAP supply chain and mobility solutions to a large installed base of multi-national customers, Peak-Ryzex will become a very strategic channel partner for our Movilizer platform and related Movilizer enterprise applications in North America which will help extend on the rapid success that the Movilizer platform is experiencing in Europe," added Zamora.
