Simplus Announces Acquisition of Australia-Based Sqware Peg

January 30, 2019

SALT LAKE CITY--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jan 30, 2019--Simplus announced today the acquisition of Salesforce’s first partner in Australia, Sqware Peg, furthering Simplus’ global expansion into the Asia Pacific region. The investment is Simplus’ first international acquisition and sixth Salesforce consulting partner acquisition since 2016.

Sqware Peg has been transforming businesses with Salesforce technology since 2004. The company focuses exclusively on the Salesforce Platform, with offices in both Sydney and Melbourne.

“Sqware Peg is a pioneer in the APAC region,” said Ryan Westwood, CEO of Simplus. “We are thrilled to work with the talented leadership of Sqware Peg and combine forces to further grow our presence and continue making an impact in the global Salesforce marketplace. We appreciate the continued support of Salesforce Ventures, who has been an incredible partner to both Sqware Peg and Simplus.”

Reid Meldrum, managing director of Sqware Peg, will become a prominent Simplus shareholder as part of the acquisition. “I am thankful for the opportunity I had almost four years ago to lead Sqware Peg through to this next phase of growth.”

Sqware Peg was attracted to Simplus, a quote-to-cash leader, because of its rapid growth. Simplus was recently named the No. 1 fastest-growing consulting firm by Consulting Magazine in 2018. Simplus also produced the first CPQ-focused Salesforce Bolt for Manufacturing and announced new headquarters in downtown Salt Lake City. The company continues to prize customer service above all, evidenced by recently receiving the title of one of the “ 10 most trusted consultancies ” by Insights Success Magazine and becoming a designated “leader” among Salesforce consulting partners by G2Crowd.

“Simplus brings another level of resources to help Sqware Peg continue to thrive in the growing Salesforce ecosystem in Australia,” Meldrum said. “We’re excited about what the future holds for Simplus ANZ, as we will be able to expand our current offering to include innovative quote-to-cash solutions.”
