Hamburg, Germany, May 15, 2017 – Hanse Orga Group, the market leader in financial automation software, today announces that it has reached agreement with e5 Solutions Group (e5), the North America market leader for implementation and support services as well as software add-ons for SAP's Treasury Applications, to join forces and become part of Hanse Orga Group.
e5 delivers best-in-class services and software add-ons that enable and augment SAP standard treasury functionality to enterprise customers in North America. The firm's focus on treasury management, in combination with Hanse Orga Group's existing expertise in delivering international solutions to clients for order-to-cash and procure-to-pay business requirements, will create a unique FinTech company which is able to serve customers along the whole financial automation value chain within SAP. Solutions can be designed that will incorporate non-SAP enterprise resource planning technology which solves many of today’s global business problems of fragmented technology landscapes and processes.
"e5's deep understanding of treasury is complementary to the existing add-ons we provide," said Sven Lindemann, CEO of Hanse Orga Group. "Considering e5’s strong footprint in North America, we will be the market leader in Europe and the North America with a unique software solution and service offering around cash flows and payments along the whole financial automation value chain," he continued.
Established in 2001, e5 works with some of the largest organizations in North America and counts many Fortune 100 companies as customers. The founding partners of e5 will remain shareholders in the new enterprise and the current e5 leadership team will continue to lead the development and management of e5 as part of the Hanse Orga Group.
Jaime Ryan, e5 Managing Principal said: "Our partnership makes perfect sense as we are creating the world’s largest SAP specialized treasury implementation partner. We share a similar vision, we have a similar approach to serving our clients and we offer complementary products and services. These synergies and our shared values will benefit our customers globally and in the process generate stronger, long-term growth for the business."
Hanse Orga Group has a long tradition of automating and managing global cash flows and payments. Since last year, Hanse Orga Group has been backed by the private equity growth investor Waterland, which supports Hanse Orga Group’s ambition to become the leading FinTech company in the financial automation space. e5 joining the Group is a continuation of this strategy and follows the acquisition of SOPLEX Consult, a credit and receivables management solutions provider, in November 2016 and Dolphin, a leading provider of process automation and data management solutions for SAP customers, in May 2017.
