US enterprise solutions firm acquires Manchester’s Symatrix

Manchester-based Oracle HCM, Payroll, ERP, SCM and OCI partner Symatrix has signed a definitive agreement to be acquired by Applications Software Technology (AST), a leading digital transformation solutions provider. The acquisition of Symatrix is the latest step in AST’s global expansion.

“The capabilities of Symatrix complement and broaden AST’s core services and allow us to reach new global markets,” said AST CEO Justin Winter. “Working together we will be able to offer enhanced services to our combined customer base. We’ll continue to deliver high-value solutions that provide measurable value and outcomes for our customers at a global scale.”

Symatrix brings an established UK customer base that strengthens AST’s vertical expertise across numerous industries and provides a platform to further expand in emerging sectors. The deep consulting capabilities of Symatrix will also expand AST’s capabilities across Oracle Cloud Applications, including Supply Chain and Human Capital Management.

“AST is a best-in-class enterprise solutions provider that has developed into a premier consultancy for complex Cloud needs across public and commercial industries,” said Chris Brooks, Symatrix CEO. “Joining forces with AST is a natural progression for Symatrix and allows us to service our customers with even greater resources and technical services.”

“AST and Symatrix represent a powerful combination in Oracle Cloud services,” added Charles Phillips, Managing Partner for Recognize, Chairman of the Board for AST and former President of Oracle. “The complementary end market exposure helps solidify the businesses’ leadership positions across two continents.”

Following the transition, Brooks and the rest of the Symatrix leadership team will remain in their roles, with a renewed focus on expanding the UK customer base with a new suite of offerings and delivery geographies from AST.
