Exact Software has acquired specific assets of alphaSIGMA Consulting LLC, an IT and professional services firm based in the US. As a result of the acquisition, the alphaSIGMA location will serve as a regional operation for Exact Software Americas, significantly enhancing the companys ability to service and support customers in the Chicago-area and surrounding Midwest region. alphaSIGMA Consulting has more than 15 employees and has realised a total revenue of $2.1 million (USD) in 2006. The acquisition will be paid in cash.
As an Exact Software business partner, alphaSIGMA Consulting has worked closely with Exact over the years to provide mid-market organisations with the integrated business solutions necessary to optimise efficiency and productivity across the enterprise. A natural progression of the long-standing relationship between the two companies, the acquisition will provide alphaSIGMA employees with greater access to resources for assisting customers and prospects with their solutions needs.

These regional offices, along with more than 80 business partner sites, provide critical local sales, services, and support to end-users, helping to ensure successful implementations of Exact Software solutions.
