ATLANTA, GA – SEPTEMBER 17, 2018 – ClearSky Consulting, a member of groupelephant.com, announced it has acquired TEAMabsolute, a leading, privately-held Infor consulting firm based in St. Paul, MN.
The acquisition firmly establishes ClearSky in the Infor Human Capital Management (‘HCM’) implementation and managed services arena, in line with groupelephant.com’s positioning as a provider of business-critical, non-core services and software to large enterprises and the public sector. TEAMabsolute will rebrand as ClearSky, while continuing to serve its clients across a wide range of industries with a comprehensive suite of Infor-based HCM and other services.
“Becoming part of the groupelephant.com family provides TEAMabsolute with a 29-country global platform, allowing us to more fully service our multinational clients, and to expand our business to untapped markets, as we leverage the ever-increasing Infor global footprint”, said Kent Jacobson, co-founder and CEO of TEAMabsolute. “We were the first Infor partner to be awarded the ‘Specialized Cloudsuite‘ designation, vital to supporting our clients as they further embrace Cloud infrastructure”.
ClearSky will continue to provide TEAMabsolute’s clients with high value-for-money HCM and business consulting services, for which the TEAMabsolute brand became renowned during its 20 years in business. The groupelephant.com platform will allow ClearSky to accelerate the pace of its innovation for the benefit of its clients, building on the success of its proprietary Migrate.S3, Transport.S3, Transform.S3, Archive.S3, and Deploy.S3 software assets.
Keith McDermott, partner in groupelephant.com, added: “This acquisition allows us to expand and more fully service an existing Infor client base, and to add new Infor clients as we grow and develop our Group. ClearSky is immediately established as an Infor HCM leader, and will be fortified through the groupelephant.com platform, with a newfound capacity to provide advisory, deployment and managed services to a growing worldwide client base".
