Israel-based IT services and solutions company Ness Technologies has completed the acquisition of privately held IT consulting and services company FMC Consulting and Informatics, in a bid to expand in eastern Europe and enhance its consulting services.
FMC provides integrated consulting and IT services, including elaboration of strategy, process re-engineering, implementation of IT systems, business intelligence and customer relationship management, supply chain solutions, finance, human resources, and e-business solutions. Its customers include Audi Hungaria Motor, Gedeon Richter, K&H Bank, Magyar Telekom, MKB Bank, Raiffeisen Bank, and Sanofi-Aventis.
Sachi Gerlitz president and chief executive at Ness Technologies said: FMC’s extensive expertise in key verticals within Hungary is a valuable asset to Ness and will further strengthen our presence in the Eastern European emerging market.
I believe that FMC’s strong consulting background, combined with our IT capabilities, will create unique added value, both for our existing customers and for our Eastern European market as a whole, said Ivan Hruska, president at Ness Technology Europe.
In a similar acquisition, to enhance its services for the life sciences industry, Ness technology acquired privately-held IT services and solutions company MS9 for $11.4 million in October 2007.
