Tech Allies Consulting Acquires Developer MindCrateSoftware Firm Will Develop Mobile Applications in Support of SAP(R) Solutions for Oil and Gas, Healthcare, Agriculture and Defense Industries (January 03, 2012)
CINCINNATI, OH -- (Marketwire) -- 01/03/12 -- Tech Allies Consulting (TAC), a rising implementation and project development firm, has acquired MindCrate, a software solution and technology partner in the SAP® PartnerEdge program, to augment its expertise in developing and delivering mobile services in support of SAP software solutions.
"As an SAP software solution and technology partner, MindCrate has built a solid reputation of industry knowledge excellence with a history of successful project implementations," said Anthony Kelly, TAC CEO. "Adding the strength of MindCrate's established customer base and extensive sales network allows us to provide more users with access to 'outside the four walls' functionality."
MindCrate's main product is AirLite, a cloud-based, product serialization engine and asset tracking system. Users of MindCrate's solutions -- which combine mobility expertise and TAC's consulting knowledge in support of SAP solutions -- include Baylor College of Medicine, Navtrak, and Pioneer Hi-Bred.
Maintaining its headquarters in Bridgewater, NJ, the MindCrate team will operate as an independent subsidiary of TAC, headed by former CEO Jeff Cocci, who is now TAC's director of mobility.
Merger adds to TAC's position in growing mobile applications market
A paradigm shift in the design of mobile applications has prompted the demand for smart phone and tablet capabilities, said Cocci.
Global industry analysts project the worldwide market for enterprise mobility will exceed $168 billion by the year 2015. Growing acceptance from large as well as small and medium businesses, and introduction of sophisticated mobile devices and novel mobility solutions are likely to fuel market growth. Gartner Research expects 900 million tablets to be sold over the next three years, noting in a recent report that tablet use is fast becoming an integral part of consumers' and enterprises' computing continuum.
Increasingly, leading-edge software development companies are focusing on the mobile device as the first platform for application development. Incorporating barcode, photos, accelerometers, GPS, and near-field communication, mobile applications are changing the way business processes are implemented by simplifying user tasks.
"With our respective mobility pedigrees in the marketplace, the teaming of TAC and MindCrate combines a highly experienced sales and development team with comprehensive, cost-efficient mobile solutions in support of SAP offerings," said Cocci.
TAC expanding presence in support of SAP solutions
This acquisition is another milestone for TAC, which recently announced its participation in the SAP Consulting Partner Program for North America. TAC is now authorized to develop and deliver services in support of SAP software solutions for customers in its core specialty areas, including the oil, gas, metal and mining industries.
